Year 2 had an exciting afternoon this week learning about internet safety. They were able to discuss and find lots of solutions to any problems they may have when using the internet. The children then made a jigsaw to share one way we can stay safe on the internet. We have connected all the pieces together as shown in the pictures below.
Year 2 have had a fantastic week learning lots of facts about chocolate. We really enjoyed our visit from Dawn Fry from The Melting Pot chocolate company and we had a great time tasting a range of different flavoured chocolate! Even the teachers got to try some! We used our creativity as well to make our own chocolate lollipops and design a chocolate bar wrapper.

First of all thank you so much to all parents who attended the curriculum tea this week. It was really great to see you all in attendance. We know that some parents have requested that we make the slides available and these can now be found by clicking the link below.
We are really looking forward to working with you over the course of the year.
The year 2 team
We all had an amazing trip to Hazard Alley, where we learnt how to stay safe in different situations. Following our Hazard Alley trip, the Safety Centre has sent out the following press release:
Wow! What a week to end Year 2! We have been really busy this week with it being Sport week, taking part in sports day, 2 trips to Hazard Alley and getting ready for Year 3! We have all really enjoyed being active and sharing learning across the school. Thank you for all the sponsorship money – we all really enjoyed completing the challenge and worked well as a team.
This week we have focused on understanding the importance of food and exercise in keeping healthy. On Thursday afternoon we got to share our learning with Year 5 by being their ‘personal trainers’. We taught them about healthy food choices and then gave them an exercise programme to follow. The Year 5’s were very shocked when they were asked to do 50 burpies!!
We also really enjoyed sharing out maths games on Friday. Everyone shared their games with people in the class and tried their best to win!
The Year 2 team have loved teaching and getting to know the Year 2’s this year and we wish them every success in Year 3!
A massive well done to all the children that took part in Sports Day. We saw everyone having fun, trying their best and supporting each other. Thank you to all the staff that helped to make this event a success and for all the parents that came to cheer on their children!
The results were very close! Well done to the green team for claiming first place! You all believed in yourself and worked as a team to succeed!
Then an extra well done for blue team for being the best team at opening their hearts to cheer and encourage their team mates. Throughout the practices and the official sports day, we saw red team show lots of resilience and grow their skills in each activity. Yellow team were also very good at believing in each other and cheering on their team.
Well done and thank you to everyone that took part!
In 2B, we planned an investigation to explore the 3 primary colours and how they combine to form other colours. We took 5 beakers and filled up the 1st, 3rd and 5th beaker with a solution of the 3 primary colours. Inserted folded up paper towels linking all 5 beakers for the fluid to transfer into the empty beakers. This resulted in the primary colours combining to form new colours in the empty beakers.
The aim was to focus on making observations and discussing what may happen (predictions).
We recorded the findings in the form of pictures, video discussions and in our books in the form of diagrams.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working scientifically and were fully immersed into the lessons.
Over half of 2B has had 100% attendance this half term. We also got the attendance trophy again this week! You have all worked so hard over the past few weeks and I am very proud of you all! Well done everyone and have a lovely half term!
Well done to Class 2B for getting the attendance trophy this week! Get lots of sleep this weekend so that we can get it again next week! Keep up the great work!
