Year 2 child is times table star!
Lydia in Year 2 has become a Youtube times table star, showing her understanding of her 7 x table in a video created by her maths teacher dad. Check out the link below to see them in action:
We all enjoyed a visit to Bolsover Castle today as part of this half terms topic.
We wanted to answer our enquiry question: What was life like for everyone behind the castle walls?
We had lots of fun finding answers to this question by gathering information from evidence inside the castle walls.
World Book Day
Thursday 5th March was 'World Book Day' and Year 2 came dressed to celebrate! The children came in a variety of costumes, representing their favourite book characters. Have a look at our wonderful gallery below:
Year 2 are on the march!
The 'Terracotta Army' is a collection of large scale sculptures dating back to 210 BC, the time of the first Chinese Emperor. Although smaller in scale, I'm sure that you'll agree that our army is equally fearsome!
Y2 meet author Caryl Hart!
Today Miss Greenwood’s class went to Darnall library to meet the author Caryl Hart. Y2SG really love her books and enjoyed getting their own copies signed. Caryl was fantastic and the children loved meeting her! Thank you Caryl for the book you have given to us, we can’t wait to share it with the other children in school. So much fun was had by everyone!
The Great Fire of London
Our history topic this term, the great fire of London, has been so popular with the children. To tie together all of their learning, the children created PowerPoint presentations which they then presented to the class. So informative!
Y2 go WILD for finger puppets
Y2SG had a fantastic time making a menagerie of exotic finger puppets for their 'Animal Kingdom' topic in Autumn 1. They have now used these puppets to create video fact files to explain each animal's habitat and how they are adapted for it. Watch this space...
The children in Miss Greenwood’s class loved taking part in the fun run at Park Academy today. They were very proud of their medals.
We made felt poppies to remember those who have fought in the war. We think they will look beautiful on the whole school mural.
In Year 2 we have been learning all about animals and their habitats. We did some research to find out where animals live and what they eat. We also found out how animals have adapted to their habitat. In Geography we learnt the seven continents and 5 oceans and we learnt which continents the animals came from. In DT we made finger puppets of our favourite animals. We presented them to the nursery children and taught them a song about animals and how they move.
Y2 go WILD!
Today we had a visit from Meet a Creature. We looked at and handled lots of small animals and creatures including snakes, spiders and lizards. We found out all about the different habitats they live in and the different continents around the world that they come from.
