Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 team: Alison Vincent (Teacher), Lisa Clemson (Teacher) & Paula Pritchard (TA).
Even though this term has been a short one the children in Year 2 have been extremely busy!
We were treated to a drumming workshop, with Nick from Glamba Drumming, where we learnt all about Samba and Carnival music. The day ended with a fantastic performance for the parents. Year Two certainly have got rhythm!

The children also celebrated World Book Day with lots of fun activities and tried to persuade children in their class to read their favourite book.
The children made models for their favourite book characters.
The children also organised a Fairtrade Coffee afternoon for the Year 2 parents. As part of their challenge they made yummy cakes and treats to serve at the event and visited local shops to see if they could spot any items that were Fairtrade.
The children continued their learning about Space and after half term arrived at school with their wonderful projects. Thank you to everyone for all your help and support with this challenge.
The children became researchers and used the internet along with books to find out interesting facts about Neil Armstrong. They then compared his life to that of Christopher Columbus.
Did you know that Neil Armstrong returned to Earth with moon dust and rocks whereas Christopher Columbus returned with tomatoes, potatoes and people called Native Americans!
The children were also invited up to the High School to visit an inflatable Planetarium. It was amazing! The children were keen to tell Will lots of facts they already knew about Space and were brilliant at spotting the constellations.
The children wrote a Newspaper article about their experience.
