Year 2

On behalf of Mrs Marin, Miss Bryant and Mrs Hussain, we would like to welcome you to our Year 2 class page. 

 

This year, our school is focusing on Nature and the Environment in the UK, and so we will be known as the Honeybee Class.  Throughout the year, we will be exploring the outstanding life of honey bees and finding out about the important role they play in supporting our ecosystems by pollinating flowers. 

 

 

Important Information

 

Please ensure children bring their book bags everyday into school. We will endeavour to change their books at least twice a week.  Your child will be bringing books home at an appropriate level to share with you.  It is important that they are regularly heard read and it is very important that your child write some comments about the book they've enjoyed.  Additionally, they will have an opportunity to read to an adult during the week.

 

We will be doing PE on Tuesday and Thursday which includes indoor and outdoor PE. Please ensure that your child has a complete PE kit every week which includes outdoor trainers.

 

As usual, weekly homework will be sent out on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or require any clarification. 

 

It is important to keep our bodies fuelled and hydrated for learning.  Please remember to provide your child with a healthy snack and water bottle.

 

If your child is having a School Dinner, please order their lunches on line.

Wheels, Circles and Bikes

During Term 3, we have been exploring our topic of Mrs Armitage on Wheels. As a consequence, the children have been weaving on a real bike wheel, been inspired by Kandinsky’s concentric circles artwork and have made their own vehicles with K-nex.  Check out our fabulous work by clicking on the video below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment.

Arcimboldo Inspired Art

Year 2 has been inspired by the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. He was so creative that he painted representations of these real objects on the canvas.  He arranged them in such a clever way that it formed a person’s portrait.

We had lots of fun and enjoyed looking at all our peer’s work.

Enjoy our fabulous art.
