Welcome to Year Two
Thackray Medical Museum
Year two recently visited the Thackray Medical Museum to continue their topic work.
First, they had a workshop looking at a range of medical things.
Next, they were able to explore and interact with different exhibits throughout the museum.
Each year, as a school, we have a week of fundraising for Christian Aid. This year we did a range of things such as a sponsored walk,
cake sale, jobs at home and also build a house competition.
Mexico Food and Masks
Year two enjoyed exploring different aspects of Mexican life, they got to taste some
yummy food and make some interesting masks.
We have been exploring the outdoors in science week, in year two. We have made our very own grasshoppers.
Year two made their own puppet.
First, they examined different puppets, looking at how they were made. They noted that they were sewn together. Next, they practiced their sewing skills.
Then they designed and made their very own puppets and evaluated them against our original design, thinking about how we could have made our puppets even better.
This year the Key Stage One’s Nativity performance was called ‘Prickly Hay’. They all had a part to play in the show and they all enjoyed taking part!
Greater Manchester Fire Services Museum
Year two visited the Fire Services Museum in Rochdale, they had a fantastic time learning lots about the history of the fire services.
We have been lucky enough to have a visit from Rhema Theatre Company looking at Anti-Bullying! It’s such an important topic, we all really enjoyed the assembly and workshops.
In year two, we have music once a week. At the moment we are trying to learn a new song called ‘Music is in me!’ Check out the video below…
We have been working on dividing in our maths lessons.
In our first week back at school we celebrated Art Week. Each year group learnt about and produced art work from a certain movement or artist. Year two looked at Paul Cezanne and Vincent Van Gough.
