Welcome to our class page....

Welcome to Year 2!

Library time.

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

Yesterday we spent some time in the library searching for books about our new topic so we can share them in our classroom. The children found lots of different books that relate to our topic. We found some story books with castles in them and we found lots of fact books. Great job Year 2!




New resources.

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

With our new topic comes a new area in the classroom. We now have a castle filled with knights, horses and dragons to defend it. The children have enjoyed playing in this area during their free time.


Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

This half term our new topic is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

During our topic we will learn about Castles and all of the different parts of castles, including towers, tunnels and turrets.

In Geography we will learn about the different locations of castles and towers and where local castles are.

In History we will look at the history of castles and why they were built.

During music we will continue to work on our music and singing skills.

In Computing we will get the children familiar with using the computers and logging on and learning how to use the computers to complete work about castles. The children will look at programming, handling data, multimedia and internet safety.

In Art and Design and D&T we will be developing our sketching and painting skills and creating some castle artwork. We will also be designing and creating our own castles.

In Science we will be investigating the best materials to build castles with and investigating the strongest way to build a bridge for a castle.

In P.E we will be looking at Games and Skills and Dance. P.E. is on Wednesday and Friday, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit with them for the whole week. 

Please can you ensure you child has a waterproof coat with them everyday, so we can be ready for whatever the weather!

Thank you,

Miss Atkinson


Dinosaur Museum

Thank you to everyone who come to the dinosaur museum this afternoon. We hope you enjoyed it and enjoyed seeing all of the work that the children have been doing during their Dinosaur topic. Thank you again for coming along. 





Triceratops skull

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

Over the past 2 weeks we have made a triceratops skull head. We made it from newspaper first and then covered it in mod rock which was very messy! Once he had dried we painted him to make him look like he has been underground for a long time! We hope you like him!


Football

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

In PE this half term we have been playing football. We have been learning the important skills of dribbling the ball, defending the ball and shooting the ball. 

Over the past two weeks we have played a football match at the end of lessons. Some of us managed to score goals too!




Stop Motion Animations

Hannah Atkinson (h.atkinson) on: Welcome to Year 2!

In Computing over the past couple of weeks we worked in groups and created our own stop motion animations using an app on the iPad. We created the stories ourselves and then created the drawings to use in it. It works by taking lots of photos and putting them all together to create a video.

Enjoy!
