Welcome to Year 2

This term is a particularly busy one for Year Two with our SATs assessments however we will still have plenty of time for other learning.
In English we will be looking at the story The Day the Crayons Quit by Oliver Jeffers. We will be doing lots of writing in role. We will then look at texts linked to the rain forest, both fiction and non fiction.
We will continue on consolidating our skills in calculations, fractions and measures in maths. In Science we will be looking at plants and mini-beasts.
After the half term we have a trip to Manor Heath Jungle Experience planned. We will be learning all about Brazil and the rain forest and also be completing some exciting D.T. topics.
We are looking forward to a super term of learning!

We took part in a workshop called Destination Space where we learnt about what it would be like to live in space. The children performed simple experiments to simulate what life would be like,these included learning about going to the toilet, floating in the capsule and what you would need to wear in space.


The children also had time to explore the other galleries at Eureka. We all had a fun day.

In Computing, Year 2 have been writing some amazing animated e-books about Neil Armstrong and the discovery of extraterrestrial space.

Below are some examples of their work. If you want to see your child's e-book, please see Mr Negoita at the end of the school day or send him an email by clicking this link.
