Welcome to our Year 2 Class Page
Our trip to the seaside 🏖️☀️
We had an amazing time visiting Gibraltar Point and Skegness! At Gibraltar Point we explore a range of different habitats and discussed which animals and plants may be found there. Then on the beach we went on a scavenger hunt! Look and all the amazing things we found - we even saw a live jellyfish and crab! Then we sorted our treasures into things which lived in water and which lived on land and then sorted our objects into carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.
After exploring Gibraltar Point we drove down to the sea front at Skegness! We loved playing on the beach and of course HAD to have ice creams! 🍦
🐷 Animal Puppets 😺
In DT we have been busy making our own animal finger puppets! We first evaluated existing designs and then designed our animal puppets, thinking carefully about which materials we needed to use. Look at all the amazing puppets we made!!
Look at the fantastic clay animals we made too!
A special guest... 🐢
Look who came to visit us! Miss Milln's tortoise Sheldon! She told us lots of facts about Sheldon including what he eats and how long he lives for!
🦓🦁🐯Animal fun! 🐻🐨🐼
In Summer one we are learning all about animals and their habitats. To begin this topic we had a fun filled day dressed as our favourite animals. We learnt and performed animal poems, went on an animal hunt around our school and also drew lots of different animals!
🔴 Red Nose Day 🔴
This year to raise money we hosted a funny face competition!
😛 Which funny face is your favourite? 😝
What a SUPER day celebrating Red Nose Day! 🦸🦸♂️
We created our very own super heroes - we had super heroes called Octopus Girl, Blue rain, Snake man and many more! We wrote fact files about our characters and then designed capes and masks!
🎉 Party Time! 🎉
To celebrate everyone being back at school we threw a Year 2 Party! We had the BEST day playing lots of party games and dancing to our favourite songs! 💛 💙 💜 💚
World Book Day! 📚🌎
We have had a wonderful day day in Year 2! We began the day by reading the book 'Millie's Marvelous hats' - then we designed our own hats! Next we designed new book covers for our last class novel - Matilda. In the afternoon we enjoyed some more stories and then made our own book marks! The children at home joined in too - a few children even made the hat that they designed! 📖
🚗 READY.. SET.. GO! 🚙
Our Spring term topic is transport! In DT we made our own cars. First we evaluated existing designs to gather ideas, then we planned and made our own vehicles, thinking carefully about which materials were appropriate for each part of the car. Finally we evaluated our design choices. Look at all our amazing cars!🚘 🚖
In literacy we have been writing reports about The History of Cars 🚘 Our reports included information about the following cars; the Benz Patent Motor car, the Ford Model T, the Bugatti and the Nissan Leaf. We also included a timeline and a section about what we think cars will be like in the future! We used the laptops and books to research all the information we needed for our reports 💻
In Science we have been learning about friction. We explored different materials to see if they were smooth or rough. Our experiment involved rolling toy cars along different materials to see which materials created the most friction. 🏎
Do you want to build a snowman?☃️
Merry Christmas from Year 2!🎅🎄
Christmas themed fun! Santa was too busy to visit this year but he had time to video call us which was very exciting.🎅🏻 We loved our yummy Christmas dinner and enjoyed dancing and playing lots of games at our Christmas party! 🍽
🍎🍊🍋 Fruit Kebabs 🍌🍉🍓
Our DT unit this half term was Fruit Kebabs. We planned, designed, made and then evaluated our Kebabs!
Healthy Humans! In Science we have been exploring what a healthy and balanced diet is. We learnt about the different food groups, the benefits of each food group and how much of each food group we should consume to achieve a balanced diet. We created our own eat well plates and designed our own well balanced lunch boxes 🍎🍌🍇🍓🥕🍞🧀🍳🍗🍰
We are super bakers in Year 2! 👨🍳 👩🍳 In literacy we have been learning about instruction texts - so we made our own blueberry muffin and then we are going to write our own set of instructions!
After eating so much chocolate in Autumn One.. we are focusing on healthy eating in Autumn Two. We have explored the artist Arcimboldo who uses images of fruits and vegetables to create his pieces of art. We recreated his art work using real fruits and vegetables... Look how amazing they are!
We have been developing our ICT skills this half term. 👨🏻💻 👩🏻💻 We can now create a PowerPoint, copy and paste images and change the size and colour of the text.
In our Drama sessions with Miss Dabbs we have been thinking about how we can change our body and facial expressions to show different emotions. Can you guess which emotions we are showing here?
Messages in a bottle.... Today we pretended we were stuck on a desert island. We wrote a letter asking for things that we thought we needed to survive. We then discussed the basic human needs and classified the things on our list into 'needs' and 'wants'
Children in Need! This year for St Augustine's it was all about Kindness! We brainstormed different acts of kindness we could do throughout the day and then made sure we completed them!
You won’t believe what happened in Year 2! An Oompa Loompa brought us a special package and letter from Mr Willy Wonka. He sent us lots of chocolates to review - ready for designing our own chocolate bar 🍫 we were so so excited!
We enjoyed tasting the yummy chocolate Willy Wonka sent us! We used this as product research - gathering ideas for our chocolate bars we are going to design and create!
Here are some of our chocolate bars! We planned, created and evaluated our products. Now we are going to send our designs to Mr Willy Wonka!
Look at all the wonderful, colourful art work we have produced this half term! We learnt all about primary and secondary colours, and studied the art work of Piet Mondrian and Andy Warhol! 💛 💙 💗
We are becoming fantastic scientists in Year 2! 🔬📝 so far we have been exploring different materials to see if they are absorbent or repel water. We discovered that paper was the most absorbent material, so then we tested different types of paper to see which was the most absorbent. 📃🌊
We are taking part in a virtual Athletics tournament with our PE coach Denise! So far we have competed in the long jump, chest past and speed jump! 🏃
The last day of this half term was a VERY fun one! We designed and created a sweet and chocolate room 🍭 🍬 - just like from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
The we had a cinema afternoon with some yummy chocolate milk 🥛🍫
