Spring 2 Topic - 'Charge!'
Welcome to Sydney Class
Welcome to Year Two! We hope you had a really fantastic holiday and are looking forward to your new adventures in year two. Throughout the year, we will be learning lots and having so much fun together. We know you will impress us with your outstanding attitudes to learning this year. This is our class page where we will post different pieces of your work/achievements from lots of different subjects. When you feel proud of something, please let us know, so that we can post it onto our page. Remember to keep visiting throughout the year to explore some of the hard work that you have completed. On our page, you can also see what we are going to be learning about in our class newsletter. You can access this page at home so if you would like to, you will also be able to share your learning with your grown-ups.
Welcome to Year Two!
Mrs Tikare and Mrs Watson
This year we have been doing a 'Daily Mile' where we all go outside onto the playground each day and keep up our activity and fitness levels by walking around as a class.
In art this half term we have been doing sketches based on our topic 'Fire, Fire, Burning Bright' which is linked to The Great Fire of London. We have used pencils, pastels and charcoal to create our own scenes. We have also created sketches based on london now and compared the similarities and differences.
For part of Chinese New year we had a special Chinese New year dance workshop where we were taught about the different Chinese zodiac animals and learnt some Chinese dancing. We were also able to see and try on some Chinese dragon costumes and use Chinese fans.
In computing this half term we have been covering the topic 'We are astronauts'. We have been looking at algorithms and using the programme Splat to create a sprite and give it movement, actions, sound and control.
An external company called 'Splatz' came in to teach the children circus skills and support our cross curricular learning.
Year two pupils have been trained in basic first aid by an external agency. Here are some pictures of the training.
During our recent challenge and support day year two children planned and created their own circus equipment. They used a range of materials and discussed the most efficient ways to join these materials. They also evaluated their work and discussed how these skills might be used in the real world.
As part of year twos 'The Circus is Coming to Town' topic, children have independently created their own circus tents for their homework.
