Year 2 Yoga!
To help us prepare our minds and bodies for a day of learning, each morning now Year 2 complete 15 minutes of yoga. Our yoga session includes daily stretches, exercises and activities that will help us calm our bodies and minds before going back into the classroom. We are really enjoying our yoga adventures! Here you can see one of our yoga positions …
World Science Day
To celebrate World Science Day, Year2 completed a fun and scientific filled morning in class. We had the opportunity to speak to a STEM representative (Anthony – a landscape architect) about his work in the STEM industry. We learnt a lot about what a landscape architect does and what it might mean for our society.
We then completed an exciting experiment, whereby we explored what would happen to milk and food colouring when a small amount of washing up liquid is added. We were amazed at the results!
Lots of children in class told us that they now love science and what to be scientists when they are older.
Y2 Art Week
This week our school have been completing one of our annual art weeks across the school. This year we have focused on the impressive collections of art created by famous black artists. Year 2 chose to complete work inspired by the artist Reggie Laurent. We explore how Reggie would often start his work on a plain black canvas and use fluorescent colours and abstract shapes to design art on all sorts of objects. Here you can see us imitating the work of Reggie using our collaging skills…..
What an amazing start to year 2 we have had! Dolphin class have been working on our place value in Maths. During this, we have been using different resources to represent our numbers, as well as to help us to solve problems.
Welcome to Year 2
In order for parents and carers to better understand the expectations and learning taking place in Year 2 this year, we have put together a short presentation. Please watch the following video and feel free to contact your child’s class teacher should you have any further questions.
