Thank You

All of the Year 2 team would like to say a huge thank you for your very thoughtful gifts, cards and ongoing support this year. What a fantastic year it has been! We all hope that you have the most amazing summer and look forward to seeing you in September!

Next Week’s Learning

All of the Year 2 team would like to wish the children a fantastic, fun and relaxing summer holidays! On their first week back in Year 3, the children will be welcomed to Year 3 with lots of Health and Wellbeing activties to get to know each other and feel settled. We look forward to seeing you then!

This Week’s Learning 19th July


Topic

This week in Topic we completed our Independent Project and had an Andy Goldsworthy art day. For our project we worked in a group to learn a poem about minibeasts. We came up with actions to help us remember the words and then we performed it to the rest of the class. We had such fun! Then we learnt about Andy Goldsworthy. He is a Scottish artist who uses natural materials to create sculptures. We looked closely at the shapes, colours and materials first then we planned our sculpture in his style. Finally we went outside and made our own Andy Goldsworthy sculpture!


Maths

This week in Maths we used our knowledge of the two, five and ten times table to work out the related division facts. We tried many different activities including ‘space races’, board games and colouring activities. This was all great practise for our Club 120 test that we completed at the end of the week. A massive well done to all the children who got in! We are so proud of all the work you have done with learning your times table facts!

Certificates

An incredible, final, full week in Year 2. The teachers are full of such pride for the things the children have achieved over the year and have found it as hard as ever to choose certificates. This week we decided to award a certificate to the whole class for the incredible choices and attitudes to learning that they have displayed! Well done everyone, keep it up for the last two days!

Butterfly – Everyone!

Dragonfly – Everyone!

Glow Worm – Everyone!

Millipede – Everyone!

Tiger Moth – Everyone!

A few children received Year Group Leader and Phase leader awards this week which is truly exceptional! Another big congratulations to the children listed below.
