Welcome to Year Two
World Book Day
Today we all celebrated World Book Day by dressing as our favour characters.
Continuing with their African topic, year two got to taste lots of common African foods.
Year two looked at kente cloth which is woven from brightly coloured strips of
materials and worn on special occasions in Africa. They then did
some paper weaving and made their own patterns.
Yellow Brick Road Drama Group
Year two have begun their topic of Africa. In their workshop with Yellow Brick
Road they worked on a performance of an African dance.
11/02/19 – 15/02/19
Year two have been looking at Paul Klee – abstract artist.
They did portraits of Florence Nightingale in his style.
This term at St. Peter’s we have introduced a new reading group called Reading Buddies. This
matches up years 5 & 6 with children from year 2, they meet regularly at lunch times to read together.
Modern Day Nursing
Continuing their Florence Nightingale topic, year two invited in a modern day nurse to
learn all about her job. It was extremely interesting!
Year two have been learning all about Florence Nightingale in their topic
work. They had a visit from Florence herself and they learnt all about
her and her work.
As part of our ‘Poetry Week’ we invited published author Matt Goodfellow in to talk all about poetry.
We had an assembly and we heard lots of funny poems from Matt’s books and also learnt the stories behind them! We laughed loads!
Next Matt came into class to help us work on our own poetry ideas.
As part of Remembrance Day each year group in the school created their own poppies, which have
now been turned into a Remembrance Display.
With year two’s poppies they chose to use scrunched up coloured toilet paper.
We think they look AMAZING!
Science – Waterproof
Year two have been looking at different materials and testing whether they are waterproof or not.
Great Fire of London
As part of their topic work, year two worked hard creating the Great Fire of London art pieces. What do you think?
Maths – Place Value
Year two have been looking at place value using dents to represent tens and ones.
Robert Delaunay and Orphism
Year two enjoyed learning about Robert Delaunay and his famous pieces of artwork.
