The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch
Year 2 are reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.
We have read a seaside inspired poem, called The Picnic, the children learned the poem and added actions. We hope you enjoy...
Year 2 took part in a Careers Fair. They listened and asked questions to a farmer, a vet and a footballer. They learned how each speaker enjoyed their job and what they had to do to get their. Hopefully, this has inspired the minds of the Year 2 class.
The children have been investigating how they can change the shape of objects made from different materials: they have squashed, bent, twisted and stretched the objects. They then recorded their results.
Check out Year 2's amazing superhero poems below...
Orienteering and Adventure Skills
Year 2 are working with Chris to enhance our communication, teamwork and thinking skills using the outdoors for inspiration.
In our first session, we had to build a hospital and a helicopter landing site.
Girls from Year 2, and across the school, were invited to a special coaching session with Ebony from Go-Well (Ebony is also a Sunderland Ladies player). The girls thoroughly enjoyed the coaching and fun games.
7 Wonders of Wellness
Year 2 are continuing their sessions on wellness with Laura from Kalmalife. They are learning ways to remain calm and focused, as well as being grateful for all the wonderful things they have.
Here are Year 2 singing one of their favourite songs from our Christmas Production: The Bethlehem Bake-Off.
Durham Castle Visit
On Thursday 24th November, Year 2 visited Durham Castle as part of our history topic. The class had a tour of the building and learned lots of interesting facts - they also got to go inside Durham's oldest room.
In the afternoon they got to put their new knowledge into use by building a castle and include all the things that had learned from the morning.
Year 2 Music
