Year 2 Latest News

 

Year 2 had lots of fun in the snow!!

What we got up to in Maths Week 2021!

In Year 2 we opened a fruit and vegetable shop in the role play area to learn about money. It was great fun going shopping and working out how much money to give the shopkeeper! There are some super shoppers in Year 2! We also made our own clocks to help us to learn how to tell the time. The boys and girls also used their problem solving skills to make patterns when they were building their towers using cubes. We worked really hard and had great fun learning! Well done everyone.

Debbie Doolittle

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Debbie Doolittle. The boys and girls got to meet and touch a hedgehog, an owl and Linney the fox.  Debbie told us about how she cares for the injured animals and shared lots of interesting facts! She even told us that Linney the fox sleeps at the bottom of her bed!

The boys and girls do amazing follow up work in class based on Debbie’s visit. Look at their amazing art work using pastels and we hope you enjoy reading their sentences about the little hedgehog. Well done boys and girls.

Working hard in P2
