Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome to Year 2's web page.
In Lilac class, our teacher is Miss Booth. Our Curriculum Learning Supervisor is Mrs Barker and Miss Gara.
In Poppies class, our teacher is Mrs Moran and our Curriculum Learning Supervisor is Miss Brett.
Our page will share important information and also learning that we have been doing over each term.
In Year 2 we try really hard to use the school RICHER values in all that we do.
Our school values are:
In our classes we have designed our own class charter with rules which we think are important.
Our PE days this term are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that PE kits are in school for these days of the week.
In Year 2 homework is set. Your child will have a green homework book that has a page stuck in the front of it linked to our current topic. This term we are learning about Pioneers and so our homework links directly to this. There are different tasks that your child can complete to earn dollars. Each piece of homework is worth a different amount of dollars.
As well as this Read Write Ink homework will be sent home as well as an expectation that your child will read at home. Please remember to sign your child's reading record when you have heard them read!
This half term we enjoyed a GTBG celebration with a difference! We had to be investigators of a crime. We learnt all about finger prints and footprints as well as looking for other clues including glasses and handwriting.
We had lots of fun finding out who committed the crime!
Year 2 went to Crich Tramway Museum on Tuesday 22nd October. We went to the museum to help understand the different types of transport, which we will be learning more about in Autumn 2.
We went for a ride on the different types of trams. We had to pay the driver an old penny to be able to ride on it and in return he gave us a ticket.
We attended a workshop which was very informative, about how transport has changed over time. We learnt that horses were the first mode of transport and this was followed by different trams. We were able to dress up as the different people that worked on the trams including the conductor and the driver. We had a fantastic day!
Year 2 experienced a fantastic day, learning all about Bhangra dancing. A very special lady came in to visit us and taught us all about the importance of this type of dancing in India.
We listened to the music and realised that it was quite fast and energetic. We learnt all the different moves that were involved in this type of dancing and put them altogether to make a wonderful performance. To make the performance even better we were allowed to dress up in some wonderful Indian clothes which included bells around our ankles to make some wonderful sounds as we moved.
We had the most fantastic experience.
It was that time of year again, to pick our favourite book character and dress up as them for the day.
We had many Matilda's, princesses and horrid Henry's. In year 2 we were even lucky to see a real Stick Man!
We had a great day working in different classes and reading a selection of books. During our time in different classes we were able to take part in a range of activities including, painting, colouring, icing doughnuts and many more.
We had a fabulous day and are already looking forward to next year!
