The Story of Grace Darling

Thursday, 19 April 2018

Year 2 had a visit recently from an RNLI volunteer called Mavis, who told them all about the life of Grace Darling.

The children listened really carefully, and were then able to use pictures to retell the events of the resucue, and complete a passage of writing about the life of Grace Darling.

Why not read through these fantastic examples of their work below?






Pop-Up Pictures

Thursday, 14 December 2017

In Design and Technology Mrs Armstrong's class have been making pop-up pictures. They chose to make an animal picture as they were learning about 'Animals including Humans' in science.  

Here are some children proudly showing some examples of their work. What fantastic pictures, well done!

SDC11339Mrs Underwood's Year 2 class have had a very busy first half term! 

Have a look at what they have been up to:

In literacy, they have used the story of 'Oliver's Vegetables' to explore different vocabulary types (adjectives and verbs). The children described the appearance of each vegetable and used exciting verbs during a practical tasting activity. The children created excellent re-tellings of the story as well.

In art, they have been learning about the artist Kandinsky. They learnt about primary colours, and mixed them to create secondary colours. They used what they had learnt to create a circles painting in the style of the artist. They had a great idea - putting the designs onto pebbles so that they could be used as paperweights!

In science, the class have been learning about Animals including Humans. They combined science and numeracy learning, by drawing around each other on the yard using chalk, and then measuring using non-standard measures. They then had a discussion about accuracy and fair testing. 

Keep up the hard work, Year 2!
