Big smiles from 2A😀

Happy faces in 2R🤩

In PE, we have been practising throwing and catching and learning lots of new ball skills. To end the half term, Year 2R enjoyed a fun game of benchball!

Before Christmas, children had the opportunity to enter a poetry competition. They were asked to create a short paragraph about a Super Pet. All entries were sent off and this week they announced the winners! WINNERS-if you would like your poem to be published, you must return your consent forms! Well done to everyone that took part! If you were not successful this time, please don’t give up! There is currently a new competition you can enter called The Poetry Bus! Entry forms are available in the library. If you would like further information please visit youngwriters.co.uk

Year 2R have been creating different tones by adding black or white.

We have been looking at the most important book for Christians, the bible, as it is God’s word! Many children brought in their own bibles for us to share!

​​​​​​​National Poetry Day!

On Thursday 5th October it was National Poetry day. The school arranged for a local poet, Elayne Ogbeta, to come in and read some of her poetry to the children. Many of Elayne's poems are written in Jamaican patois and Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed listening to each one!

 Reading 

Year 2 love to read! We visit the library every Thursday and choose a new story to take home.

We enjoyed our first visit to the school library. Our author is Roald Dahl and we have loved reading ‘The Twits’ in class! Year 2 can’t wait for our weekly visits, so we can loan more books to take home.

 Religion 

Year 2R turned off the lights, closed their eyes and imagined looking at the night sky. They thought about their feelings and how we are always close to God.

We praise you Lord for all the wonderful things that you have created for us!

Year 2R created their very own Psalm. Here is a short clip of a pupil leading our reading today.

Year 2R-We went for a walk around school to explore all of God’s creations!

Year 2A-God’s Creation Story

Year 2R-God’s Creation Story!

We discussed how starting something new makes us feel. We recognised the new beginnings that we face today, as we start Year 2, and the new beginnings we may have faced in the past.

 PE 

Year 2R-Throw-Clap-Catch!

Follow the leader-Year 2R warm up session!

We explored rolling, throwing and catching in Year 2R!

In Year 2R, we practised rolling and stopping a ball, with control, using our hands. We loved our first games lesson!

 PSHE 

We recognised that we all make mistakes but it is important that we learn from them! It is important that we apologise and say sorry. We also recognised that it is equally important to forgive others for their actions. We thought about something that we are sorry for and read them out to one another. As a symbol of saying sorry, we scrunched up the piece of paper and put them in the bin. We put our sorry behind us and started fresh to move forward.

Year 2R have been learning about online safety! Take Buddy the dogs advice to stay safe online!
