This is the text map we drew for our key text - Rapunzel - ask the children to show you the actions!




During Autumn 2 we are going to be focussing on Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot.  We will be working towards our key question - 


Was Guy Fawkes viewed as a superhero in the past?

We have been enjoying some lovely treats in Year 2 this week.  We had a cinema afternoon where we got to watch a film with hot chocolate and cookies.  Everyone enjoyed this very much.  We also had the pantomime in to school - it was a big thumbs up all round!



During this half term we are enjoying Art lessons.  We have been learning a lot about primary colours and secondary colours, and we have been exploring what happens when we mix colours and when we add black or white to them.  The children are really enjoying painting!


We are very fortunate in Year 2 that we have a special music teacher that teaches our music lessons.  Today we have been learning to add sign language to our songs!  The children enjoyed this very much!




In PE today we continued with our multi skills theme.  We run this as circuits and change the stations every week.  As you can see we get lots of effort put in from the children.

Anti-Bullying Week


This week we have been celebrating anti-bullying week.  We have enjoyed celebrating this with various activities across the school.  In Year 2 we practised some drama in a workshop and attended a Superhero activity with Mr Ross in the library.



During the first week back after Autumn term year 2 was fortunate to have a TA in the classroom who was celebrating Diwali.  She talked with the class about the history and the reason for the festival, and how they celebrate today.  We were all so interested in this that we made some lanterns to celebrate the festival of light.



08.11.21-12.11.21 is Maths Week.  To celebrate we have taken part in a nationwide Numbots competition, as well as playing some maths games from Teach Active.  The images below show one of our class maths games.

Autumn 1

We have started Autumn Term with a bang in Year 2 - with our topic being Superheroes!


The children are enjoying getting involved with all of the role play that we have included in our lessons, such as Dance and English, and they are all very enthusiastic with the new topic.


We have enjoyed lots of practical Maths lessons too, to help us get back into our learning journey in an enjoyable way!
