Year 2 Gallery of Events 2021-22

Take a look at some of the fun things we have been doing in Year 2.

Gender Stereotypes - October 2021

Today in class Year 2 explored a very important life lesson all about gender stereotypes.  The children were shocked to learn that some people think certain jobs are for boys and certain jobs are for girls!  This afternoon we smashed gender stereotypes out of the water and we all agreed that it doesn't matter what gender you are. If you work hard and try your best you can do any job that you want to!

Music Lesson - October 2021

This week in music, we listened to a very different genre! The piece is called "The Night Ferry" written by Anne Clyne. Our focus this week was to listen out for the crescendo within the piece and create a visual score using symbols. The children loved it and made links between the music and a boat on the stormy seas. They generated adjectives for the music such as "spooky" "mysterious" "dangerous" and "adventure".

Forest School - October 2021

Year 2 have loved searching in the forest school for minibeasts and microhabitats.

Holy Rosary - October 2021

As October marks the month of the Holy Rosary, Year 2 have begun to say special prayers in class using the rosary beads. The children say the Hail Mary, The Our Father and a Glory Be together as we think of loved ones.

Wet Playtime Equipment - October 2021

Year 2 have never been so happy to see rain so we could play with our brand new wet playtime equipment! We gave our suggestions to our School Council Reo last week and we were so happy to receive so many new games and things to play with. Thank you School Council!

 

African Patterns - October 2021

This term in Art, the children are exploring the strand of 'Printing' and have been looking at the structure of African patterns. They worked very hard to create some intricate, brightly coloured beautiful patterns of their own.

 

Special Gift - September 2021

What a surprise we had waiting for us this morning! The children walked into class to find another furry creature had brought us a special gift! A tiny lion had left us a present wrapped up on our story telling chair.
Our text this week will be How to Hide a Lion by Helen Stephens. The class have already made some great links between this story and other books and films.

Music Lesson: Can I critique a song? - September 2021

This week in Music, our Learning Challenge was "Can I critique a song?"
The children listened to The Beatles 'With a Little Help from my Friends' and we talked about emotions that the lyrics made us feel. The children said that it made them feel 'happy' 'joyful' and 'full of love' for their friends in class. There was lots of dancing and grooving!

Osebo the leopard! - September 2021

Year 2 had a very exciting morning with a furry friend that came to play!  A gift had been left for us by our newest story character, Osebo the leopard!
