We went to the zoo, zoo, zoo!

Year 2 spent the day at Blackpool zoo. The zoo staff taught us all about the animals we saw from the penguins from the Artic to the Camels from Africa. We met a bearded dragon, finishing the day with our own playground adventure.

Thank you to Mrs Shaw, Mr Gibson and Mrs Kimber who made the trip possible.

Where the wild things are!

This week we have been reading the book ‘where the wild things are’, learning all about Max’s adventures. In design and technology we designed our own wild things, bringing them to life using our colourful modelling clay.

Money, money, money!

Its all been about money this term in PSHEE! We have learnt about where money comes from, how much money different people earn, what you have to pay for out of your wage as an adult and the importance of managing your money correctly.

We ended the week with a game of monopoly!

Healthy Living!

Healthy body and mind was on the menu for year 2 this morning. Year 2 spent the morning with Calderdale’s Healthy Living Team. Starting with a touch of yoga, followed by some meditation, we moved on to a healthy start to the day, good hygiene and the need for sleep.

 

 

A busy first day back!

A sad but busy first day back as the children said goodbye to Miss Gill. Leaving a rainbow behind, she left us for pastures new.

 

To keep her on her toes the children showed off their reason skills answering some challenging questions. I have added a couple below so parents can have go! Are you smarter than a 6 year old?

 

 

 

The end to a busy term!

Year 2 have had a busy half term. They have been working hard learning their timestables and have written some amazing stories and recounts. Our class book this half term has been James and the giant peach which we finished today. The children have really enjoyed the book and have used the challenging vocabulary we have come across when reading the book in their writing. Melancholy, determined, cautiously to name but a few!

The children spent their last lesson today drawing an image of their favourite part of the book.

 

Our forest adventure.

Year 2 had a fantastic day at Nell Bank. We learnt so much about the countryside and the animals that live there. The pictures say it all!

Teachers for the day!

Year 2 spent the morning yesterday teaching the teachers! With their highlighters ready they marked books, corrected spellings and gave good feedback! All in a days work.

Dictionary corner.

It’s all about our ‘wow’ words in literacy this week as we plan Little Red Riding Hood’s adventure through the city. With a little help from dictionary corner Little Red is courageous, fabulous, amazing and utterly determined as she battles through the hazards of the city to make it to Grandma’s flat!

The Great British Cake Off!

To end the measuring madness this week we had a great British Cake off! The children were split into 4 teams as they competed for this year’s title. All the children did amazing with no help at all. In the end after much deliberation the lemon cake came out on top!

A big thank you to Miss Gill for organising the day for us!
