Year 2 news...

Researching Modes of Transport

As part of our ‘Transport’ topic we have researched different modes of transport and gathered our findings in a PicCollage on the iPads. There are so many ways in which we can travel!

 


Our Transport Topic

On Monday the children brought in their favourite moving vehicle to celebrate the start of our transport topic. They showed their vehicles and discussed why it is their favourite.


Movement Topic

Year 2 have started their ‘Movement’ topic in Science. They have enjoyed experimenting with slime to find out how far it will stretch with the force of gravity.

   

 


Gymnastics

Year 2 have had lots of fun learning gymnastics with the coach over the past few weeks. They now know lots of different shapes, rolls, balances and jumps. Here are the children receiving their certificates for working so hard, well done!

 

 


Spanish Taster Lesson

Year 2 really enjoyed their Spanish taster session this week. We can’t wait to learn Spanish in Year 3 next year with Senor Pena.

 

 


Andy Goldsworthy Art

We have been looking at the local artist Andy Goldsworthy and were all inspired by his work. We collected a range of natural resources including; twigs, leaves, shells, sand, feathers and pebbles.

We worked together in groups and designed and then made our own inspired pieces of art work.

 

    

 


Time Detective Mosaics

To complete our Time Detectives topic we looked at mosaic art work. We then designed and created some of our own.


Nature P4C

During this week’s P4C session we used an image as a stimulus to discuss when we thought it was ok to take things from nature and what it’s never ok to take away with us.


Turning Clockwise or Anti-clockwise?


The Troll

2M have been thoroughly enjoying their class book ‘The Troll’
