WOW!

 

This week in Year 2, the children have participated in the Circus school where they were able to learn new and exciting skills.  They learned how to walk on a beam, juggle, hola hoop, walk on stilts, make balloon animals, skip and create their very own clown face.  The children and adults have thoroughly enjoyed this week!  Take a look at the photos below.

Science

 

This half term in science we have been looking at materials to see whether they are waterproof or absorbent. The children carried out a number of scientific investigations to test which would be the most absorbent material to clear up a spill. They then went on to design their own waterproof book covers by deciding which material would be best for this use.

Election Day

 

As part of the Student Council election process, the children had to vote for their class' representatives. Year 2 learned all about democracy, canvasing and voting. They all voted for the person they though was best for the job.

Blackpool Tower Trip

 

Year 2 visited Blackpool Tower as part of their ‘Home Sweet Home’ topic. They had a lesson about the history behind Blackpool Tower and learned some facts to help them with their non-chronological report writing for their school project.

The children had a fantastic and fun time in Jungle Jim's and then had the chance to create their very own Tower structure using Lego!

Read Theory is an additional educational reading resource that we are using in school to encourage children to challenge themselves. The ultimate goal is for children to develop their reading skills and increase their comprehension.

 

Please understand that this is a secure and teacher monitored website where the children can develop their ability to become fluent, competent readers. It is easily accessible through laptop or tablet device (children may need help logging in but the rest is all down to them).

 

Happy reading!

Please read with your child every night and log this in the Reading Record book.  The books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday.

P.E

 

P.E will take place every Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please can you ensure that their P.E kit is in school and earrings are taken out.

Year 2 Class of 2016/17

 

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!
