The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch
Year 2 have been reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. Here is a video of Year 2 reading a poem inspired by Mr Grinling's lunch at the beach.
During Spring Term we are reading a variety of traditional tales to inspire our own creative writing. We have been using lots of drama opportunities to express our ideas.
Year 2 have been developing their expression of song with voices and instruments.
New Age Kurling
5 boys from Year 2 were chosen to represent the school at the New Age Kurling Carousel at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre.
Not only did the boys have lots of fun, but they also had the opportunity to develop their throwing skills.
Centre for Life 29th April
Year 2 had an amazing day exploring and learning about the world we live in. They were allowed to play, explore and have a workshop that explained all about the world they live in. Take a look at the pictures below to get a flavour of all the fun they had.
This term we are investigating plants.
We are going to carry out comparative experiments to see what conditions plants need to grow best.
Active Maths and English
The class are working with Gareth from Go Well to develop our English and Maths skills. But bot only are we working our amazing brains, we are working our bodies physically. This is a great opportunity for Year 2 to have their endorphins pumping whilst expanding their brains. As you can see from the pictures below, Year 2 are really enjoying their learning.
Our Practice Reading groups are named after some of the world's best known and best loved authors. For our big homework task in the first Autumn term, the class had to research their group author and present their research to the class. Here are some examples of the wonderful work the children, and their fantastic families, produced:
