World Book Day
Year 2 had a fantastic day on World Book Day. All the teachers were very impressed at the range of book characters children dressed up as. All children received a free book token, so make sure you quickly go and claim your free book before all the good ones go. You can use your book tokens at all the major supermarkets and Waterstones.
Look at our brand new superhero capes!
In KS1 we are 'Superhero Writers'. Who is going to be first to wear one of our capes?
Ask you child how they can get one and if they have worn one yet.
Our 'Superpower is Writing!'
Year 2 had a fabulous time at the Zoo. They went around and visited different animals and paid close attention to the different types of habitats.
Year 2 have been learning about algorithms. They have been following, writing, and creating different lines of codes and placing them in a sequence to perform tasks. They then used the Bee Bots to test and practice their algorithms.
This week Year 2 have been studying African Art. They gathered lots of research and then experimented with lots of different designs using lots of different shapes and patterns. Afterwards they made their own African hats, they used a range of different patterns and bright colours to make them stand out. Don't they look fabulous. Great job Year 2.
Fire Service Visit
Lancashire Fire Rescue came and spoke to Year 2 about fire safety. Children were taught the important rules surrounding fire safety and what they should do if they suspect a fire. They then acted out what they had learned with their classmates. All children were asked to go home and check that their smoke detectors are in working order. Parents and Carers please look at the leaflet which was sent home with your child for further advice about fire safety.
Spring 1 WOW - Animal Treasure Hunt
Year 2 had a great first day back. They had to solve clues which described lots of their favourite animals. Once they had solved the clue they had to hunt around school looking for the picture and match them both together. Great Job Year 2!
Welcome Back Year 2
The Year 2 team would like to welcome everyone back! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to seeing what's in store for this term. Parents and Carers please have a look at our new curriculum overview for our new topic 'Home Sweet Home'.
Santa visited Year 2
All the children were very excited to see Santa this afternoon. They all told Santa what they wanted for Christmas and received a present to go and put under their tree at home.
KS1 Nativity Whoops a Daisy Angel
Year 2 put on a fantastic performance for their nativity. They have put in a lot of time and effort during the past couple of weeks to make sure they put on a brilliant show. Well done to the whole of KS1 and to all the parents for coming to watch our performance.
Year 2 enjoyed a lovely Christmas Dinner wearing their Christmas jumpers. They had lots of fun pulling crackers and telling each other jokes.
Year 2 Gymnastics
Year 2 have been working hard in Gymnastics this term performing lots of different balances, rolls and jumps. They then put them all together to make a sequence. Great job Year 2.
The Advent countdown is nearly here......
Year 2 have been designing their own class advent calendars which have lots of lovely surprises inside. We're very excited to start opening them.
Miss Johnstone and Miss Ward would like to say a HUGE welcome back to our new year 2 children! We have had a busy summer preparing lots of fantastic learning opportunities for all of our children and we can't wait to get stuck into our great new topic, 'Extraordinary Earth'. Please take this opportunity to look over our curriculum and topic overviews to see what our children will be learning about this half term.
Thank you for your continued support.
This year, Year 2 have had a fantastic year of investigations, trips and jam packed topics! We began the year finding out about our local history in Blackpool and had a visit to Blackpool Tower! We have voted in our own democracy, planted cress, participated in circus life, and learnt all about habitats at Blackpool Zoo and much, much more.
We have experienced a wide variety of WOW days ranging from exploring the geography of the world in true Christopher Columbus fashion to creating our own healthy meals and recreating The Great Fire of London!
Miss Johnstone and Miss Akin are extremely pleased and proud of all of our children and we will be sad to see them leave Key Stage 1. We wish them well in year 3!
Year two have enjoyed a fabulous year. With our trips to the amazing Blackpool Tower, Stanley Park and Blackpool Zoo, where the children had lots of fun exploring their local area and getting to know the animals and their habitats!
For our topic 'Home Sweet Home' we had a visit from a circus school, where we all learnt some fabulous new tricks! The children also got the chance to turn into 'WILD THINGS' for the day, which was lots of fun! Our "Back to the Future' topic took the year two children back in time and they spent the day as Victorian children in a Victorian school! Which at times, I'm sure they will say it was a little bit terrifying! I think all the children will say they are glad it is 2017!!!!
From healthy pizza's to bedside lamps the children have been kept busy learning lots of new information and gaining many new skills.
We even survived the SAT's!
A Big well done to all the children in year two 2016-17!
You we're fabulous!
Miss Park, Miss Dodgson and Miss Morris
