Year 2 Blog

Welcome to the year two blog page, which will be updated regularly so that you can keep updated with what's been happening school side.

 


Wednesday 14th March 

Year 2 have been investigating which shapes float best. The children made predictions and were encouraged to give reasons. The children worked in small groups to mould plastercine into different shapes. Year 2 concluded that cup shapes floated the best. The children were further challenged to see how many marbles they could float using their plastercine shapes. Cigdem and Dylan set the record with six marbles! Well done.

Thursday 1st March 

Year 2 did a great job of dressing up as a favourite book character to celebrate World Book Day 2018. Please make sure the children get a chance to use their book token when you're out and about. Happy reading! 

Wednesday 28th February 

Today Year 2 got stuck into their new topic; Land Ahoy! Mr Broomfield brought in his kayak to show the children. Both classes spent some time asking Mr Broomfield some questions and then they all did some observational art. The children sat in a big circle around the kayak and used their observational skills to sketch what they could see. 

Monday 12th February 

Today was Science Day and Year 2 completed five space style experiments. We designed a farm for Mars, created a space ship, made a map of the solar system and tested an astronauts suit. The children had lots of tricky questions to answer and really thought about what space was like scientifically. 

Wednesday 7th February 

Today it was the Foxes turn to visit Pizza Express in Stratford. They spent the morning with Pizza Express staff who taught them all about how pizzas are made. The children learnt about different ingredients that are often used at Pizza Express and finally they made their very own pizzas! 

Tuesday 6th February 

Today Year 2 celebrated E-Safety day! 

Tuesday 30th January

Flamingoes Class visited Pizza Express in Warwick today. They spent the morning with Chef Nelson who taught them all about how pizzas are made. Nelson gave the children a tour of the kitchen and told them about the four different areas of food preparation. The children learnt about different ingredients that are often used at pizza express and finally they made their very own pizzas! 

Wednesday 24th January

The children have been learning about a type of Japanese art called 'Suminagashi.' It involves floating ink on water and printing the patterns onto paper. 

Tuesday 16th January 2018 

Year 2 have had a very exciting morning! We walked from school to Coventry Cathedral where the children waited patiently for Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge. The children had an opportunity to ask their questions to the royal couple and even passed on some Sidney Stringer bears! Look out for us in the newspapers! 

Wednesday 10th January

Year 2 have got off to a slimey start this term! We have been reading George's Marvellous medicine and couldn't resist having a go ourselves! The children will be making their own Marvellous Medicine this week and to get some ideas they have been exploring some gruesome ingredients! The children used their experiences to write descriptive sentences using adjectives and alliteration. 

"The oozey scrumptious bumpy baked beans" - Zara. 

"A spoonful of delicious squelchy runny rice pudding" - Cigdem. 

"A small handful of slimey jiggly jolly jelly" - Maryam P.

Wednesday 10th January 

Year 2 have now made their Marvellous Medicines! They thoroughly enjoyed pretending to be George and making medicine that was as gruesome as possible!
