Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

The new school year has started well and the children have settled into Year 2.  I will endeavour to put as much information up here as I can as well as useful information appropriate to what the children need to learn in Year 2.


Just to advise we are going to be making our castles in both Years 1 and 2, on Friday this week (5th October).  We have sent a note home asking that your child brings in something to wear over their clothes to protect them eg. an old t shirt, an old shirt or an apron.  We will be getting messy with paint and glue!  


If you have any queries about this activity or anything else we are doing in Year 2 please do come and have a chat.

** Our PE days this term are Tuesday's.  Please can you ensure that your child has a PE kit which incorporates clothing for inside and outside lessons, thank you**

African Day

On Wednesday Years 1 & 2 took part in a special African Continent Day for their topic. They both designed and decorated their own wooden, tribal masks using acrylic paints and discussed what part of Africa they came from. They also discussed the symbolism of the colours used on the masks. Year 2 went on a flight to Kenya and had to pass through boarding control with their passports


In the afternoon, both classes participated in a drumming workshop using Djembe Drums. They learnt certain rhythms and discussed dynamics, tone and pitch. Year 1 imitated some sounds of African Savannah animals and Year 2 practised some more complex rhythms in different groups. Both classes performed their music to the rest of KS1 at the end of the day. We all had a lovely day and thoroughly enjoyed the activities!

On Monday 6th November 2017, Year 1 and Year 2 went on a trip to the Brighton Toy Museum. We were amazed by all the different toys we could see and how colourful they were. We saw some toys that were over 100 years old and we had a chance to hear about how toys have changed over time. We saw an old wax doll which was a bit creepy and a beautiful old bear called George who had mohair fur (goats fur). We enjoyed finding out lots of information about the toys and sketching them.
