Year 2 2018-19

Summer term 2019

What a busy two weeks we have had!

We have received some very strange emails with pictures of monsters, We found out these belonged to George, a small inventor and had been created by a Monster machine! We have really enjoyed sharing the story and have done some lovely work about it which can be seen on our display.

We have enjoyed our first two swimming  and Tri golf lessons and we have been very busy doing our quizzes too!

Jump Rope competition

What a great time the skipping club had at their first ever Jump Rope School Championships!

The children had been well trained by their coach Stacie and took part in 30 second speed, 30 second crosses, 30 second jumping, 30 second double dutch speed, long rope challenge and at the very end performed a whole school skipping routine. All the children were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

Finally at the end of the day medals were awarded to all the winners. Ombersley won an amazing 4, 1st place medals and 5, 3rd place medals and that didn’t include the two won by Mrs Hills! Congratulations to everyone.


Book Week in Year 2

We loved Book Week!

The theme for this year’s Book Week, at Ombersley,  was Performance Poetry and our poem was The Owl and the Pussycat. We have learnt it off by heart and done lots of lovely activities to do with the poem. We have even had a go at writing our poems, which we are looking forward to sharing with you in our Class assembly.

On Monday our parents came to share a story with us, on Tuesday we brought a book to school to swap and on Thursday, World Book day, we came to school in our PJs and slippers with our teddies and our favourite book to share with children from another class. We loved this, especially the hot chocolate and Marshmallows that we had later. And on Friday we bought our competition entries into school for a ‘Design a Poetry chair’competition. Well done Harvey and Finley who were the Key Stage 1 winners. We can’t wait to see what the chair will look like. 



What a wonderful day we had at The Snowdome. It was just like being at the South Pole!

After we had had our snack and got changed into our waterproof clothes we had a session of sledging and tubing. They were very hard to steer!

When we had finished that we had a snow play session. There were lots of snowballs being thrown!

Finally, after we had eaten our lunch, we went back to school, just in time for home time.

Cooking and Gymnastics!

The children have enjoyed making their pizzas this term and their have been many different combinations of toppings, but they all look delicious!

The Year 2 children have started their Gymnastics lessons this term and have been concentrating on performing sequences of movements on the floor, low apparatus and high apparatus. It has been great fun!

Digital Leaders to Westacre

We spent a fantastic afternoon at Westacre with our Digital Leaders. We talked all about what being a Digital Leader is and why it’s such an important role in school. We then got practical. We made a film explaining the role of a Digital Leader which we will show in assembly. We also took apart a computer to see what’s really inside and how it all works. Thank you Westacre for the wonderful afternoon.


We have loved our first few lessons of Yoga with Mrs Rusby. We remembered what we did when we were in Year 1 and now we are learning lots of new positions.


This term we are making pizza in cookery. Look at the delicious pizzas we have made so far and what a variety of toppings!

Lost and Found!

The children have had a very exciting start to the new term.

In the first week they found a trail of fish in the classroom which led to a lost penguin! Where had it come from?

Then the next day a suitcase, containing some mystery items, appeared in our classroom. Who could it belong to?

And finally we found out. We received an email telling us it belonged to a small boy and the penguin was his!

But where was he going with his suitcase? 


Christmas in Year 2

The children loved all the Christmas festivities. 

There was a fantastic trip to the pantomime, the school Nativity in church (they sang beautifully), a Christmas arts and craft morning, a visit from Father Christmas, a reindeer drive  (it’s like a beetle drive but you build a Rudolf!) and the Christmas party.

After all that we were ready for the Christmas holidays!

Happy New Year and see you all in January. 

Cluster Carols

Years 1, 2 , 3 and 4 had a lovely afternoon at Tibberton First School, taking part in our Annual Cluster Carols with Hindlip and Tibberton schools.

It was a lovely  start to our Christmas festivities.
