We are so excited to meet all of you and welcome you into our Classes! Year 2 is an exciting year.

We will be adding lots of pictures of our exciting activities as the year goes on to show how much we are learning every single day.
Why wont my parents just let me eat chocolate?
We had an amazing time with some fantastic learning with our second topic - Why won't my parents just let me eat chocolate. We learnt so much. We looked at the story 'Supertato' and explored the characters within the story then created wanted posters for the Evil Pea. We then wrote an alternative version of the story with a different evil character. We then learnt all about chocolate and made posters showing how chocolate is made. In Science we discovered all about healthy eating and the different food groups. We carried out scientific investigations to find out which drink has the most sugar and would damage our teeth. We explored the continent Africa and found out cocoa beans grow in the country Ghana. We even created sketches of toucans.
Not forgetting our amazing workshops from warburtons where we made our own sandwiches with Nicki and Alison. We even went to the market to buy lots of different fruit and vegetables and tried them when we got back to school. We had such a busy term which ended with our fantastic performances of our Christmas play 'The Inn-Spectors'
We wonder what the New Year and Spring 1 will hold? Don't forget to check Class Dojo to see our learning in action.
Would you like to live beside the sea?
We had a fantastic start to Year 2 with our first topic - Would you like to live beside the sea? We learnt so many different things. We looked at the story 'The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch' and explored the characters and then wrote our own versions of the story, we even made our own sandwiches and wrote instructions of how to make them. In Science we built electric circuits for lighthouses ensuring that the light worked. We explored Grace Darling in History and learnt about her famous story. In Geography we located Lyme Regis and shared how it was different to Nuneaton. We even made lighthouses out of clay and painted fantastic pictures of Grace Darling. We had an amazing visit from the RNLI and went to the seaside (on the playground) and became Victorian children at the Heritage Centre. We did so much amazing learning in Autumn 1.
I wonder what Autumn 2 will hold?- don't forget to check Class Dojo regularly to see our super learning.
