All the Year 2 children have had a super start to the year! We have been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso as part of Art Week. We have looked at different pieces of his work and tried to create our own. We found out about his life in Spain and enjoyed creating Picasso inspired symmetrical patterns. If you would like to create your own Picasso face at home please [click here].

Year 2 have had a fantastic last week! We have enjoyed lots of special assemblies where we celebrated our achievements. The highlight of the week was making our own Fire Engines as part of our Design Technology work. We thought about how the Fire Engines today are different to those from 1666, used in the Great Fire of London. We used old boxes, turned inside out, and decorated them with ladders and lights. Then we painted them and added lights. The finished engines all look fantastic!
What a fantastic end to the year!
Thank you for all your support over the year and we wish all the children of 2HB and 2MW good luck in Year 3 :-)

Well done to all the children who were awarded their Summer term 100% Attendance certificates this week. Who will achieve their 100% Attendance for the whole year?

This week, in Literacy, we have been looking at the story Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne as part of our transition to Year 3 work. The story shows a day at the park from four different perspectives. Listen to how the voice for each character is different.
We will be continuing to look at the story in September when we are in Year 3.

Our topic in Year 2 this half term is Fire!
We are looking at the Great Fire of London. In our ICT lesson this week, we use 2animate to produce an animation showing how easily the fire spread through the wooden buildings because they were so close together.

Year 2 have had an absolutely fantastic week! We have learned all about being healthy, thinking about diet, exercise, sleep and having a healthy mind. On Monday we watched a 'Food Education Show' where we found out how to make different foods and everyone got to taste something. We have enjoyed Yoga in PE and thought about how music and reflection can help us relax and stay calm.
We also visited the Life Education bus and met Harold the giraffe who taught us that it is important to talk to people about our feelings. We finished the week outside playing tennis with some visiting coaches from Sutton Tennis Club.

Year 2 have been busy designing and making their own butterflies.
First we had to thead the needle -that was quite tricky!
Next we sewed the two pieces of felt together to create the butterfly.
We left a hole in the edge so we could put some stuffing inside it.
When we finished sewing we had to decorate them. They all look fantastic!

We have started our new Science unit, 'Plants and Animals'. We went on a walk around the school grounds.
We thought about all the different habitats that we could see.
A habitat is the natural home of a plant or animal.
There are different plants and animals living in our pond to those living in the raised beds.
