🏴‍☠️ Treasure Island 🏴‍☠️


All of the children in Year 2, have been working really hard during our project 'Treasure Island' 🏴‍☠️. They have been learning all about the capital cities in UK🇬🇧, creating their own maps🗺 and learning about famous Pirates🏴‍☠️. This week during our D&T lesson, Year 2 made their very own pirate cannons using wheels, axels and junk modelling. They worked so hard and would like to share their incredible models with you.⭐️

Year 2 Church Visits⛪️

This week (W.B 28/11/2022), Year 2 walked to All Saints Church⛪️ in Shard End. Once we arrived at Church, we were given a talk all about how Christians celebrate Christmas🎄 and what advent means🕯. Then, we placed our beautifully designed baubles on our Year 2🎄, which we made at school. After that, we were given a tour of the church ⛪️ by some very helpful ladies. Finally, we all ended our visit by singing 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas!' 🎄

Buildings Day! 🧱🛠

During our 'Buildings Day', Year 2 had a fun packed day! We started off by using our maths knowledge of 3D shapes🔴, creating buildings🏙 and structures using spaghetti, marshmallows and play dough. Then we became 👩🏾‍🎨, and sketched famous buildings around the world. After that, we became scientists🥼 and took part in a melting and cooling experiment, using chocolate🍫, butter🧈 and ice🧊. Finally, we became technicians👷🏼‍♂️ and we created various buildings and structures using junk modelling, lego, foam bricks🧱, wooden blocks and meccana.

👨🏿‍⚕️👩🏽‍🍳Black History Month👨🏾‍🎓🕵🏿‍♀️


During October, we have celebrated and learnt all about Black History Month👨🏾‍🎓. We have been exploring texts written by black authors📚, and looking at fiction and non-fiction texts that talk about black history and significant figures🕵🏿‍♀️. We have changed our reading areas so the children have easy access to these texts independently during storytime too! 📔

We have really enjoyed listening to poets such as Maya Angelou👩🏾‍🏫 and Benjamin Zephaniah👨🏿‍🏫 and each class have also explored a key significant person within black history. 


Elephants🐘 have been researching all about Bob Marley🇯🇲, listening to his songs🎶, learning facts about his life and even looking at pictures of where Bob Marley lived!

Pandas🐼 have been researching all about Marcus Rashford⚽️. We have enjoyed learning all about not only his football achievements 🏅but also his charity work and petitioning!

Parrots🦜 have been looking at Usain Bolt🏃🏿, looking at his sports performances, talking about facts about his life - and even his favourite food🍗!

We have learnt so much and we are so excited to continue our learning throughout the year!
