Autumn 1- Week 2

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 5:21pm

What an excellent week it has been in Year 2! From exploring Trolls to learning Irish dancing with Miss Emmett, we have been very busy!

In Collective Worship, we began our new monthly value of ‘Creation’. After exploring the creation story, we discussed how beautiful our world is and we all felt strongly about the importance of protecting the environment.

Following on with our Trolls theme, we created a bridge thinking map about the obstacles that Poppy and Branch face and overcome. We also created our own Troll heads by planting and nurturing cress seeds.

Remembering that gratitude is the best attitude, we had lots of fun creating our own recipes for happiness. We enjoyed sharing these with the class and discussing what makes us happy. 

Our week concluded with a celebration of Roald Dahl. The children were bursting with excitement to share their favourite Roald Dahl books. It was wonderful to see their love for reading! Having learnt about Roald Dahl, we were inspired to create our own characters. Our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sweet collages were also a delight!

Well done for your hard work this week Year 2. Have a fantastic weekend and see you on Monday!

Year 2- Autumn 1- Week 1

Date: 6th Sep 2019 @ 5:28pm

Wow! What an amazing start to Year 2! It has been a very busy week and we have enjoyed lots of exciting activities. At the start of the week, we found a message with hidden clues which led us on a treasure hunt to find our class bear Coco dressed as a Troll! We were all very excited to explore the journey that the Trolls would take us on. We discussed what we knew about the film and explored how the Trolls spread happiness through the power of music and laughter. We linked this to our 4 step gratitude model which reminds us that ‘Gratitude is the Best Attitude’ and explored how we can show our gratitude towards others, recognising how important it is to thank others and return small acts of kindness.

In collective worship this week, we explored how happiness is found inside all of us. We discovered that Trolls love to hug each other, and do so every hour! We talked about how we show love to one another and wrote a message on a Troll heart to someone we were thankful for.

We loved getting creative this week when we experimented with mixing lots of brightly coloured powder paint to create a colourful rainbow background for our Trolls that we designed. Our art work was an explosion of colour that the Trolls would be proud of!

Well done Year 2 for an amazing start to the school term!  

Have a lovely weekend!

Welcome to Year 2!

Date: 3rd Sep 2019 @ 4:29pm

Miss Gray would like to wish you a special welcome to Year 2!

During the Autumn term, PE lessons will take place on Monday and Friday mornings. Children must have the correct indoor and outdoor PE kits with them on both of these days.

Children are encouraged to bring a snack each day to be eaten at break times. Please remember to provide your child with only a healthy snack – e.g. fruit, vegetables.

Bottles of water with a sports cap type lid are also encouraged so the children can drink as and when they need it throughout the day.

Please see the Powerpoint below for all additional information to ensure your child has the best start to Year 2.

I am very excited to see what wonderful things the new academic year brings!

Thank you!

Miss Gray
