Year 2 2018-19

Yoga

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.

Pizza!

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.

Thank you!

Thank you to all the wonderful Year 2 parents for our fantastic Christmas present! We love it!

Maths Week in Year 2

We  really enjoyed Maths Week! 

We read the story, The Great Pet Sale, and solved all sorts of problems using money. We had to buy different numbers of pets, find the change and work out if £1 was enough to buy all the animals in the Pet shop.

On Thursday, we all came to school wearing a number and our parents and grandparents came to join us to play some Maths games. It was great fun! 

On Friday we had the whole school Maths House Challenge. Each house had to make a tessellating shape, then decorate it in our house colours. When we had finished we tessellated all the shapes to make a beautiful pattern.

Children in Need Year 2

Children in Need 2018

Wow! Pudsey came to visit us. We wore our spots and bright clothes and gave him all the coins we had collected.

We loved the cakes at break too!

Remembrance

The children in Year 2 have really enjoyed all their work to commemorate the 100th anniversary since the end of World War 1.

The children have looked in detail, at the poem ‘In Flanders Fierld’ by John McCrae, had a creative morning with Year 1 making all sorts of different poppies and visited Ombersley Church to look at the War graves in the church yard. This week the children are also sharing what they have found out about the members in their family who fought or lived during the World Wars.

Some of the children also joined us on Remembrance Sunday to place crosses on the war memorial. 

Happy Hallowe’en!
