Spring 1 Week 3 - Baking Bread

This week some Y2 children have been learning key vocabulary for our theme "The Great Fire of London".  They have made their own bread and discussed key words such as "baker, oven, hot and bake"  The children then got to sample their own bread.  It was a lovely way for our children to understand the vocabulary for our theme.  Thank you Mrs Adlington for all your help.

Spring 1 Week 1 - Fire Engine Visit

This week Y2 enjoyed a visit from the National Emergency Services Museum as they are learning about the Great Fire of London.  The children discovered what a fire engine holds, how firefighters fight fire and how the Great Fire of London spread, and then how it was put out.  It was a fantasic day!

Save Our Trees

Y2 have learnt about the importance of trees for the climate in their curriculum, the year 2 children marched to protest about deforestation. The children made placards and posters and chanted 'Save our trees' loudly and passionately! The children have enjoyed learning about the importance of trees and the importance of young people raising their voices. It was a fantastic event and one which we hope will remain with the children for a long time. Thank you also to all parents who came and supported our protest, we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Y2 Swimming

Dear Parent/Carers,

I am writing to inform you that children in Year 2 will be starting swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum on Tuesday 10th February 2019. Pupils will attend school as normal on Tuesdays and will travel, supervised by school staff, via coach to the Ponds Forge Leisure Centre each week. The swimming sessions will run until 28th April 2020.  The children will be taught be qualified swimming instructors. The sessions are fully funded by school and as they are part of the curriculum all children are expected to participate. If for any reason your child is unwell and unable to participate in a session, please speak to school staff.

For each lesson your child will need:

  • A swimming costume or swimming shorts
  • A towel
  • A waterproof bag

Please ensure you follow the guidance below:

  • Your child should not bring or wear any jewellery, including ear piercings. Taping over piercings is not acceptable and will mean your child cannot participate in a swimming session.
  • Long hair must be tied back.
  • The teacher will ensure any medication which has been shared with school is taken with the child’s group. Please ensure if your child has a medical need such as asthma, this information has been shared with school and an inhaler has been provided.
  • Appropriate swimwear must be brought each week. Please be aware that bikinis, shorts below the knee, heavy outdoor clothing or underwear are not acceptable.
  • If your child is required to wear a long sleeve top and leggings, these should be lightweight materials and worn underneath or on top of swimwear.
  • If your child requires goggles, these must be provided by you and you will need to inform  Mrs Edley prior to the first lesson

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher or Mrs Edley.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Asma Maqsood-Shah

Autumn 2 Blog Week 7

This half

This half term Year 2 have explored the theme, animals and their young. In story time, Year 2 have read and enjoyed the book, 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of The Dark' by Jill Tomlinson. They have also used this as a core text in their whole class reading sessions as they have investigated vocabulary and sequenced events within the story. This has linked to their science curriculum theme, 'Animals and their young'. In science, children have investigated what animals need to survive and the similarities and differences between animals and their young. The children have thoroughly enjoyed researching owls and they have applied their research in the form of a non-chronological report that they will share with children from Early Years.  As part of their curriculum, Year 2 were fortunate enough to meet some owls in school and learn about them in a tangible way. 

Noticeably, this half term's learning has allowed our children to experience the awe and wonder of the natural world. As a result, our children have become passionate about the current situation regarding climate change and the affect that it is having on our planet and animal's habitats. This has led them to organise a campaign march to raise awareness of climate change within their community. The event will take place on Thursday 19th December from 1:45 to 2:15pm. As a year group, we are excited to demonstrate how our learning is impacting on real world issues and we hope that you can join us for the event.
