Year 2 news...

World Book Day

We took part in our World Book Day event this year by decorating a hat. We had to catwalk through Lower Hall to show our hats as best we could. Can you guess which books these hats represent?


Safer Internet Day

We had a great time working with One Day Creative in a pirate themed e-Safety workshop. The session reminded us how important it is to have our own passwords, to keep our information private and to be respectful on the Internet.


Baking Cakes

Year 2 have enjoyed making cupcakes after reading Katie Morag and the Baking Day Secret. We all decorated our cupcakes once they had cooled and took them home to eat. Delicious!

 


Jigsaw Joe

Year 2 have loved their first session with Jigsaw Jo which involved talking about goals and what we are proud of achieving!


Speaking Buddies

Pupils in 5L enjoyed discussing how to stay safe online with their Speaking Buddies in 2M.

 


Chester Zoo Trip

Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying the Chester Zoo Trip. We had a fantastic time looking at all the wonderful animals. We learnt so much about the different types of animals. What an amazing day and a lovely Christmas treat!


Anti-Bullying Production

Years 1 – 6 thoroughly enjoyed an anti-bullying production earlier this week. It was lots of fun but had a number of important messages. Can you remember what they were?

 


Materials Experiment

As part of Year 2’s Materials Topic, we investigated which ball would bounce the highest. Do you think it would be the sponge, rubber or plastic ball? Click here to see our graph to find out!

 

 


Not Now, Bernard!

Year 2 are really enjoying retelling the story of Not Now, Bernard! We have started adding actions to the story so we can retell it without reading the book. We are making our first attempt at up-levelling the basic story this week.
