Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 team: Lisa Clemson (Teacher), Jordan Cockette (Teacher), Karen Marshall (HLTA) & Paula Pritchard (TA).
We have all enjoyed a fantastic half term!
We started the term by being donated an award winning pumpkin! We explored its size and then cut it up and placed it in Forest School to feed all of the different wild life.
For Bonfire Night we explored different types of poems. We looked closely at the features of a poem and then worked hard to write our own. Once we had written our poems we developed our artistic skills and created firework pictures using a range of media.
To finish our firework project we used the iPads to record our own firework videos in groups. We needed to read our poems and capture images of our firework art.
In Forest School this term we explored making art using natural materials. We carefully planned our designs and then used these to create forest floor masterpieces! We needed to carefully arrange all of the materials and refer back to our plans. We used the beautiful coloured leaves on the floor, sticks, stones and anything else we could find.
This half term our topic has been 'A Stitch In Time'. We enjoyed a fantastic visit to Forge Mill Needle Museum where we got to spend the whole day learning about different needles, how they are made and what life was like for a child needle worker.
We completed a needle logo challenge and then dressed up as workers and 'went to work' in the scouring mill. We learnt all about the processes involved and decided it was not a job we would've liked!
Christmas quickly came around and we enjoyed getting in the spirit with a trip to Studley Methodist Church to see all of the fabulous Christmas Trees on display! We spotted the tree that our school had made as well as others from different organisations.
Once back at school, we had fun decorating our own Christmas Trees in the classroom.
We are looking forward to starting our next topic 'Space' in Spring.
