Welcome to Y2

Welcome to Y2!

 

A warm welcome to Y2, we hope you have had a great holiday.  It is lovely to see all the children looking so smart in their uniforms.

 

We have a busy year ahead and will be working hard to develop our reading, writing and maths skills.  You can help with this by reading with your child every night-it only needs to be for a few minutes.  In order to help them understand the text they are reading, it is also useful to ask them some questions as they read.  When you have read with your child, please remember to return the book along with their signed Reading Record.  There are prizes to be won!

 

Each week, the children will be given a spelling list to practice at home.  They will also have another piece of homework based on the week's learning in class.

 

A reminder about PE kit.  Your child will require a full PE kit (white T-shirt, black shorts/leggings and a change of footwear).  PE kits should be left in school and only taken home for washing during the holidays.  Please ensure your child does not wear jewellery on PE days and earrings are removed at home.

* Y2AM PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays

* Y2AW PE is on Mondays and Fridays.

Thank you for your support

Year 2 Trip to Eyam

On Wednesday 8th June, Y2 visited the Derbyshire village of Eyam. This was part of our History ‘Plague’ topic. It was a beautiful, sunny day! We explored the village and saw the cottage where the plague first began. We learnt about how the plague spread and in total 260 villagers died. In the afternoon, we had our picnic lunch and then enjoyed a play on the playground. What a great day! We had lots of sleepy heads on the coach home! Well done Y2!

Take a peek below at some of the photos of our trip and the fun we all had.

David Harmer Visit

The Poet David Harmer came to Lowfield school.  He led an amusing whole school assembly where we had to join in with actions and parts of the poem.  We created a pirate poem together.  He then came to Y2 to work with us to create a class poem which was great fun.

Anti Bullying

The whole school took part in Anti-bullying week in November.  Here is some of the work we did that week.

 

Autumn 2

British History.

Remember, remember the 5th of November….

Y2AW have been learning about the history of Bonfire night and why it is celebrated in Britain. We learnt all about Guy Fawkes’ plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James. We now know that Guy Fawkes is remembered every Bonfire night when we have bonfires and fireworks.

  

Autumn 2

Citizenship:

E-safety: Y2AW read the story of Smartie the Penguin and learnt how he keeps safe when using the Internet. We designed our own E-Safety posters and learnt Smarties E-Safety song…we even added our own actions to help us remember it. Take a look at our E-Safety display in the ICT suite.

Fruit Salad

The children have been learning about healthy eating through their science and design technology.  They all made a fruit salad which proved to be very popular.  The strawberries were the favourite choice of fruit.

​The children wrote instructions using connectives on how to make a healthy fruit salad as part of their literacy work.

Y2 have been learning all about turns. We have been thinking carefully about making half and quarter turns and clockwise and anti-clockwise too.We enjoyed directing the Beebots around the map and helping them reach their destination.  

Autumn Term

The Great Fire of London

Year 2 children have been very busy over the last few weeks learning about The great Fire of London of 1666.  They have been researching and finding out facts about how the fire started, how it spread and what happened.  We have been trying to make sure our writing contains punctuation and that we have used adjectives in our writing.
