Year 2 go into the woods…
Year 2 had a fabulous day at Hamsterley Forest!
Pooh sticks, adventure playgrounds and hunting for bugs and beasties – such a perfect day!
On Wednesday, Year 2 were taken back to the Victorian times with an enactment of Alice and Wonderland. The children worked with storyteller Chris Connaughton to learn more about Lewis Carroll and his famous story. We explored writing riddles, the ‘ch’ challenge, creating shape poems and writing Rebus letters. It was a fantastic day and inspired everyone to get creative with their writing.
Today, Y2 have been learning about food hygiene, healthy eating and food waste in our Food Technology lesson by Warburtons. We were very excited to learn about how bread was made and to then make our own healthy sandwich wearing our snazzy hairnets and aprons. We all successfully completed the Warburtons School Visitors Programme and we will be able to share our learning at home with our food booklets. In the afternoon, we will be attempting to run a mile in the yard so we were happy for the extra energy before lunch.
Let’s get healthy!
Fire! Fire! Burning our Tudor Houses
On Tuesday and Friday afternoons, Year 2 learn through actively choosing their ‘jobs’. From writing a new song based on ‘London’s Burning’, creating a Tudor house or programming a Beebot, they are all fully engaged in their work and ultimately enjoy what they are doing. We love getting creative and being motivated to learn more.

Year 2 have had a drama filled, action packed, first week back at school. Juniper class took part in a drama workshop on Wednesday – they learnt a play all about pirates, which they later performed to Poplar class. The children from both classes are excited to learn all about pirates this half term and have been planning their learning.
