Autumn 2

Remembrance Day

On Thursday 11th November at 11am, Year 2 held a 2 minute silence for all the people that lived, fought and died during the war. We created our own poppies to show our respect for the people that lived during this time and sacrificed their lives for the country. We hope you like our class display featuring our poppies.

Creative Curriculum

This half term our Creative Curriculum topic is 'Festivals.' As part of our learning about Bonfire Night, we talked about firework safety and created our own editable sparklers during Golden Time using bread sticks, chocolate and sprinkles! Don't they look great? 

We also made our own display background by creating firework artwork. We had lots of fun using colour and print to help us create our firework displays. Well done everyone-you worked really well together to create some fabulous artwork for our display!

Science

In Science, we are learning about animals including humans. For our first lesson of the half term we discussed and

sorted food that was healthy and food that was unhealthy. We also learnt about the five different food groups and why  each of these groups is important in maintaining a balanced diet. We were able to sort food as a class into these different categories. Well done everyone-super 'Team Tiger' work!

PE

In PE, we have enjoyed using the apparatus to explore different ways of travelling, balancing and jumping as part of our gymnastics lessons. Here we are enjoying the different stations! 

Computing

In Computing this half term, we have been learning about how to look after our well-being by managing the time we spend using devices. We talked about the importance of taking breaks from using devices and discussed ways in which using a device too much can affect our minds and bodies. We used this information to create a poster as a class. We passed our poster onto Miss Walker for her to use as part of her Computing display to help teach others ways of looking after themselves as part of our computing well-being. 

Kind Messages to Teddy

As part of our learning during Anti-Bullying Week, we learnt about cyber-bullying. We talked about what cyber-bullying was, who we could talk to about it and what we could do if we experienced it. Teddy had been receiving some not very nice messages from someone online so we decided to write him some nice messages to cheer him up. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yoga

We enjoyed carrying out some Christmas themed Cosmic Yoga today! We carefully copied the yoga poses and enjoyed acting out the Christmas adventure using our bodies to help us. We were all very flexible and gave the poses a good try! 

Diya Lamps

As part of our learning on festivals, we learnt about how Diwali is celebrated. We designed and sculpted our own diya lamps out of clay. We enjoyed shaping the clay and adding pattern and texture to our lamps using different tools. We can't wait to paint and decorate them!
