  Autumn 2 in Year 2  

December has been a busy month in Year 2! We got to work practising for our nativity 'Lights, Camel, Action’. This year we did things slightly differently and recorded the show scene by scene. We then got a golden ticket sent home telling us about a special premiere (which we had on Thursday). We got to wear our party clothes into school and had a celebration of all the hard work that we had put into our nativity. We even got to watch ourselves on the big screen!

We stayed on the Christmas theme in English writing letters to Santa and sending them off to the North Pole. We have had a great time in Science investigating materials. First we made chairs for the wicked witch in Hansel and Gretel focussing on comfort and stability. Then we turned our attention to Santa and thought about what materials would be best for him to make his sack from - after all it needs to be strong and sturdy to carry around all those presents!

In Art we have used marbling inks to create patterns and push pins and sequins to design our very own baubles. This week we have also been busy wrapping some handmade surprises. So Year 2 families, look out for something special under your tree next week!

  Autumn in Year 2  

In Year 2 we have been exploring 'Heroes and Villains'. We thought about what it means to be a hero or a villain and discussed people through History that would fit these headings. We have used positive reflection times to think about what these amazing people have done for us and how they have changed the lives of so many.

In Maths we have been learning about addition and subtraction. The children have used tens frames, number lines and hundred squares to solve number sentences and have applied their learning when reasoning and problem solving.

To tie together our Fire of London unit, the children planned, designed and made their own fabulous fire engines, making great use of the awesome woodwork bench in our outside learning area.

The children hove been working hard in Phonics - particularly on blending tricky split digraphs! They all completed their Phonics Screening Check earlier in the week and totally smashed it! Finally, roll up, roll up to Roller Disco Club... How could we not mention it?! What a huge success - the children are loving every minute of it!
