Welcome back to Year Two after the Summer holidays! Mrs Baker and Miss Roberts are very excited to meet all of our new children and are looking forward to getting to know everyone! In our first week back we will be taking it off timetable to concentrate on team work and finding out all about our rules and routines in Year 2!
Our first half term will concentrate on the topic - London's Burning! Much of our work will take on an enquiry approach as we travel back in time to visit the Great Fire of London! We will be researching and using different sources to find out exactly why the great fire of London was so great! At the same time we will be building on our bank of stories: reading, writing and retelling a range of stories from our own experiences!
Autumn One, Week One - This week we have been thinking all about team work and how we can work together to help each other! We decided on our class rules - to work hard, be polite, be honest, be respectful and be kind. It has been lots of fun getting to know our routines and finding out what life in Year 2 will be like!
Autumn One, Week Two - In our second week in Year Two we have been thinking all about fire safety...poor Miss Roberts had a little fire in her kitchen and she didn't know what to do!! Luckily, Year Two were on hand to remind her to call 999, stop, drop and roll and check her smoke alarm!
In Autumn Two we worked really hard learning all about Guy Fawkes and rehearsed for our Christmas show - we wrote some fantastic stories all about Mildred Hubble and had great fun at our Christmas party.
Spring in Year two can only mean one thing - time for a minibeast hunt around the school! We have been learning all about habitats and what plants and animals need to survive as well as Earthquakes and Volcanoes! We loved watching Imogen's and Tyler's volcanoes explode on the playground. We wrote some excellent riddles all about animals and found out lots of interesting information about sunflowers.
