Year 2

Welcome to year 2!

 

Welcome to the year 2 class page! My name is Miss Greer and I am the year 2 class teacher, children will also be supported in their learning by Miss McArdle. Please take the time to explore our class page and see just how fantastic year two are! Don't forget to also check out our 'curriculum' page to find out more about what we are learning this year. 

This year PE will be taught on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Children will take part in gymnastics sessions from the Beth Tweddle Academy every Wedensday and football sessions from Liverpool Football club on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit as it is vital for health and safety reasons that children are wearing the correct PE uniform.
Homework will be handed out every Friday and children should return it by the following Thursday. The purpose of this homework is to review what the children have learnt during the week. Children will also change their home reading book once a week.

There's A Hole In My Bucket

 

This week we listened to the song "There's a hole in my bucket" and as we have been learning all about materials this term in science we thought we could test some materials and find out which would be best to block the hole. We used plastic cups rather than buckets and tested paper, fabric, cotton wool and plastic. We found out that plastic was the best material to block the hole and stop any water from leaking.

Exercising is Fun!!

We love exercising because our PE lessons are really fun! We are still having coaching sessions with LFC and Gymnastics sessions this term. 

Ten Ten Theatre Productions

This week year two got to watch a production from the Ten Ten Theatre group. We had lots of fun and it also taught us that we do not only find happiness in doing what we want for ourselves but more importantly we can also find happiness by doing things for others. 

Alexander Brian McConduit

American author Alexander Brian McConduit popped into our class and read us some of his very own stories. We really loved Snowballs For All! 

E-Safety Cadets 

Year two took another democratic vote this week to pick two children from our class to become E-Safety Cadets. Children gave a speech explaining ways in which they could help others to keep safe on the internet. The class decided Daisy and Jack would do a super job as E-Safety Cadets! Well done! 

Voting for our School Councillors

In order to pick our class councillors those who wanted the resposibility each said a short speech in front of their class mates and tried to pursuade their friends to vote for them. Everyone picked two people who they thought would do a great job representing our class and year two decided Lillie sand Caidan were perfect councillors for our class! Well done! 

Place Value 

An Encore Too Many

Picture 1
The class recently visited the Walker Art Gallery and took part in a school art project called Take One Picture. In year two we focused on the paining An Encore Too Many and completed work in lots of different subjects based on the painting. In English we wrote stories about the painting, we created lots of fabulous art pieces and also looked at child slavery.
