Welcome to Year 2
Our Class Work
Christmas Activities in Year 2
In RE we discussed what a Christingle is made from and what it reminds Christians of at Christmas time. We made our own.
We had a Christmas craft afternoon. Our adults came to help us.
We visited Santa at the Town Hall.
We sang Wise Men, Wise Men as part of the Christmas production I’m Gonna Shine.
We raised money for Save the Children on Christmas Jumper Day. We also ate Christmas dinner.
Autumn Term 2
As part of our work on Remembrance Week we created our own art work using Pointillism effect. We researched the work Georges Seurat and tested different colouring materials to create our dots.
We visited Trinity Church to go on a Christmas journey. We took part in the Christian nativity story. The puppet show was our favourite part.
International students from Durham University came in to talk to us about what it is like to live in France, Sweden and China. We were learning to speak French and how to count in Swedish.
In Autumn 2 we had weekly Relax Kids sessions with Mrs Waugh.
We had lots of visitors that came in to school and told us about their jobs.
Our Autumn topic was ‘Food Glorious Food.’ In Autumn 1 we thought about where food comes from and the jobs involved in getting our food from farm to fork.
Hall Hill Farm
We visited the farm to find out about animals and their babies as part of our Science work. We saw some new born piglets. We enjoyed being farmers for the day, feeding the animals and milking the cows.
We had fun riding around the obstacle course on balance bikes and our own bikes.
We took part in a Judo taster session. It was lots of fun!
We worked with Joe from the Sedgefield Sports Partnership to work on our fundamental movement and football skills.
We enjoyed reading ‘The Disgusting Sandwich.’ We worked in the outdoor area to find our own ways the sandwich could turn into the disgusting sandwich. We used these ideas to write our own stories.
We used tuned and untuned instruments to enhance our performance of Hands, Feet, Heart from Charanga.
We made our own butter. We had to shake the ingredients for a long time. We made sandwiches and we invited our grown-ups in to help us make and eat them.
We have talked lots about ways to keep ourselves healthy.
The School Nurse came to talk to us about how to look after our teeth.
