Welcome to the Year Two Blog, we will post photographs of work completed each half term and keep you up to date with news of exciting future events.
This year we are developing our singing skills each week with Mrs Walton from Knowsley Performing Arts Service. Each week we focus, and show resilience when learning new skills and take pride in performing songs learnt.
We all thoroughly enjoyed watching the circus show before working with the performers to learn circus skills.
International Day of Democracy
Today we planned, wrote and then shared our speeches explaining why we should be elected to represent Year Two on the School Council. We then voted for our representative.
It was amazing learning how to make Samba music. Through focus and resilience we created our very own Samba band.
In Science we have been learning about health and growth. We investigated how to remove bacteria from our hands.
In Design Technology we have been designing and making hand puppets. We needed to use our super learning powers of resilience and focus to turn our designs into reality.
Celebrating Our Differences
As part of Anti bullying week we have been discussing and celebrating our gifts, talents and differences. At the end of the week we all came to school wearing odd socks to celebrate how unique we all are.
This half term we have been learning about the events leading up to and following the sinking of the Titanic. We have had lots of fun using diaries, newspaper reports and the I Pads to research facts.
Safer Internet Day
We had lots of fun exploring the Digi Duck stories and activities exploring ways to stay safe whilst online. At the end of the day we used role play to share our learning.
This half term in P.E. we have been exploring Gymnastics. In each lesson we have been challenged to use our super learning powers. We found resilience, collaboration and focus key to our success.
Learning about Australia has been fascinating. We have used atlases, maps, globes and the internet along with our learning powers to identify physical and human features found in Australia, locate and name states, territories and Australian cities.
This half term we have been exploring the work of William Morris. His work provided us with lots of inspiration to create our own pieces of work. We transferred our designs onto a tile which we then used to print our designs using printing ink.
