Year 2

Year 2 have been learning all about islands and how they are created!

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!

Democracy is one of our core British Values so what better way to learn about it than to use our votes to elect our class school council representative? The children have been working hard all week to create interesting and thought provoking letters for their class mates to hopefully secure their place on the school council. After a very candid and well planned letter was delivered to the children of Elm class, Lola was elected as our school councillor. Well done Lola!

We had a great time this week visiting St. Mark's church in Layton. Reverend Peter showed us all around his beautiful church and allowed us to explore and find all of the items on our scavenger hunt. We learnt lots of interesting things about the church and why is is such a special place for Christians.

Year 2 have been learning all about the continents and oceans of the world. We used atlases to locate them, then we looked on Google Earth to identify and describe the physical features of the Earth and then we created our own oceans using jars to represent each one. We filled them up with the wildlife that you would find in each ocean. We had a great time learning all about our 'Extra-ordinary Earth'

Year 2: A Year in Review 2017/18

 

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 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! 

 

Miss Park, Miss Dodgson and Miss Morris
