Year 2 Learning Examples

Polar Bear Class enjoyed a live stream story by Swapna Haddow as part of National Storytelling Week.

English

Year 2 enjoyed writing 'What am I?' riddles based on animals. We used expanded noun phrases and similes too! We created a class riddle book and we shared the riddles with our Year 5 reading buddies. 

Art

Year 2 were inspired by the work of Georgia O'Keeffe and created beautiful floral artwork using oil pastels. 

Fantasy Stories

Year 2 children have enjoyed learning about fantasy stories and finding their features. The children used a clip called 'Once in a Lifetime' as their inspiration and then created their own characters. After writing their stories independently, they shared them with their Year 5 reading buddies. 

Penny Whistle

Polar Bear Class were delighted to have a surprise musician play her penny whistle this morning!

RE

In Year 2 this half-term, we have been exploring the question: 'Why do Christians trust Jesus and follow him?'. We found out about how Jesus recruited his disciples and why they wanted to follow him. We also heard the stories of Zacchaeus and the paralysed man. We visited St James Church to understand how Christians learn more about following Jesus by going to church. Finally, we learnt about Mary Jones and how she worked so hard to be able to buy her own Bible. We discussed why Christians might want to be like Mary Jones and acted out the story. 

British Values

On British Values Day we found out about the importance of respect, rules and democracy. We voted on new table leaders and also for someone to represent Polar Bear Class on the student Lighthouse Group. Well done to Daniah who received the most votes. 

Design and Technology - Sandwiches

Year 2 have enjoyed their week making and eating a healthy sandwich. They practised their cutting skills and tried to make their sandwich look appealing.

Past Tense

Year 2 have enjoyed finding out about the past tense through playing a game with a partner. It was great fun!
