Autumn 1

Year 2 has had a fantastic start to the year. The children have all settled in really well and it has been great to welcome a new child in every class. It has been a busy few weeks with lots of exciting learning. The Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole workshop took us back to the 1800s and we enjoyed acting out the different roles and learning about the lesser known Mary and the significant role she played.
Our trip to Painshill Park provided an opportunity to see a range of micro-habitats and during our mini beast hunt we found at least ten different types of bug.
All class have enjoyed learning about their class names and on SuperMagic Day we created some beautiful artwork linked to the various topics.
We are all looking forward to launching our Space topic and finding out ‘How on Earth we got to the Moon’! The Family Tapestries show that Year 2 children love singing, dancing and playing instruments and we are very excited about our Christmas show.

Autumn 2
For Year 2 this half term has been out of this world! It started with the discovery of an alien in the Wilderness! We are still wondering where it came from and where it is now!
The children’s fascination with space was shown by their many amazing questions. It was a busy half term full of fun learning about our solar system and the space race.
We hope you enjoyed our Christmas production ‘The Landlord’s Cat’ as much as the children loved performing it. The children worked incredibly hard applying a range of skills to put on a really sparkling performance.
The Year 2 team is looking forward to launching our ‘London’s Burning’ topic and taking the children back to a time when the city was a very different place.
We hope you have a well-deserved rest and lots of fun this festive season ready for the start of the New Year.
