Year 2

                         

Welcome to Year 2, Autumn 2018 

We've had a superb first few weeks back at school and the children have really impressed us with their confidence, motivation and smart behaviour. A great start to a great year ahead!

 

Our topic this term is 'TOYS WE LOVE'. Please take a look at the curriculum poster below for more details of the term ahead.

26.09.18: Today was the first of this year's two Internet Safety Days. We didn't dress up, but we learned all about our 'digital footprints' and different ways to stay safe when we're using technology. 

Don't forget that our class digital mascot - Webby Wolf will be going home with one of the Year 2 children each week. This year, Webby is trying to help the children be more resilient when using technology.

12.09.18: Today we’ve been thinking about play. We discussed lots of questions, such as;

What is play?

Why is play important?

When does play go wrong?

How can we play positively with each other? 

Then we played games to develop our skills of co-operation, listening and focus.

Pass the whisper: We really needed to concentrate and listen carefully.

Balloon Bop: We had so much fun working in teams to keep the balloon afloat (without letting go of our hands). Tricky!

Winking wizard: oh no, everyone’s asleep! We needed focus and brilliant eye contact to catch the wizard.

11.09.18: Today we held an election to choose our new Year 2 School Council representatives. The children had been given a chance to prepare their ideas for homework, and those who were interested showed great confidence when presenting their ideas to the class. We then had a secret ballot and announced the winners.
