Year 2 had a fun day with Sir Teach A Lot learning about knights, castles and the medieval times. We got to see some of the clothes knights wore to protect them in battle, we were allowed to practice jousting and we got to build our very own castle and knock it down! 

Planting Turnips

As part of our traditional tales topic we read The Enormous Turnip story. We then researched how to plant a turnip and used this information to plant our own turnip seeds. The children took their turnips home to grow. 

Caterpillars to Butterflies

The children have LOVED watching our caterpillars changing into butterflies and have learnt lots about the process of metamorphosis. 

The Easter Story

The children have loved learning about the Easter Story this week. We played a game of pass the parcel to help re-tell the story. Each layer contained a picture showing a different part of the story. At the very middle of the parcel were some chocolate eggs. We discussed the link between eggs and the Easter story (and then we ate them of course!).

Henri Rousseau

We have enjoyed learning about the artist Henri Rousseau in year 2. We have looked at lots of his paintings and learnt all about him and his life. We created jungle paintings in the style of Henri Rousseau and made animal masks too.

World book day

For world book day we dressed up as our favourite book character with a theme of 'magic'! We produced some writing about our characters, had a 'golden ticket' colouring competition and made up stories using wooden spoon characters that we made. Everyone had a great day!

Rainforest Roadshow

The Year 2 children had great fun learning all about the Rainforest. We met some real creatures, produced some lovely art work, made tribal necklaces and had our faces painted.
