In Year 2 we cover all the foundation subjects (geography, history, art,  design & technology,) through a series of learning challenges.

These allow us to learn lots of new facts,

skills and gain knowledge.

This term our learning challenge is 'What would Ted Explorer find exciting about our city?'

 

In Year 2, we have been looking at different buildings in Sheffield.  We have created our own paintings and models of the buildings.

We have been learning about who St George was and what happens on St George's Day!

In Year 2, we have been using Pie Corbett to help us with our writing, especially looking at connectives.  We performed our stories for parents and Key Stage 1 in assembly.  These pictures show the children performing the fairy tale Rumplestiltskin.

A big well done to all the children in KS1 for all their hard work in preparation for the Nativity and for their fantastic performances!

The Nativity will soon be here!

 

We are doing two performances on Tuesday 9th December and one on Wednesday 10th December.

You can still get tickets from the office.

 

(P.S. Please make sure your child has a dark t-shirt and trousers / leggings to wear under their costume. Thanks.)

 

 

 

In Year 2, we have been doing some measuring in metres outside using trundle wheels and metre sticks.

We have been measuring in centimetres and metres using the book Actual Size by Steve Jenkins.
