Welcome to our class page where you can find out about our exciting learning!
Year 2 Learning
This week has been all about keeping ourselves healthy. We have been exercising lots and have had lots of fun trying to think of different ways we can keep fit. We have also had some visitors come into school to inspire us. On Tuesday, we ran half a mile around our playground. Some of us managed to run a little further, too. On Wednesday, we had Zumba – we really enjoyed this!
Our half term focus for RE for Spring 1 is how Jesus was a friend to everybody. We will be looking at some of the stories where he performed miracles to help those who were not as well liked by other people in their society. One of the first stories we have looked at is that of Blind Bartimaeus. We blindfolded some children and had them explain what it was like for them to lose their sight. We then reflected on what it was like for him once Jesus had healed him.
Warrington Museum Trip
We have recently visited Warrington Museum to look at toys from years gone by. We learned about different toys which children were given, and how different customs and traditions have come about. The children really loved their day and they each got to make a traditional cup and ball game to take home!
In RE this half term, we are learning about how the Good News of Jesus’ birth was spread far and wide. We will look at what is good news and how good news can be spread today. Our favourite lesson so far has been our drama session. We loved pretending to be the shepherds receiving the good new from the angels.
Children in Need 2019
This year, we were really lucky to have Pudsy come to visit us. He came around the classes to collect our donations. We loved having him come to visit – even more so when he joined into our reading time! He wanted to thank all the children (and their friends and family at home) for all of their generous donations.
Happy, Healthy Me
As part of our topic, ‘Happy, Healthy Me’, we have been visited by a lady from ASDA, who led a workshop about healthy eating and making good snack choices. We tasted a wide range of new fruits and made a healthy yoghurt snack. We also talked about how different foods help our bodies in different ways.
As part of our History work, we have been lucky enough to have a set of washing equipment from many years ago. The children have learned all about the differences in washing days from then and now, and they LOVED trying it out themselves.
This half term, one of our PE topics is handball. We are looking at developing our catching and throwing skills and developing tactics. This week, the children have all learned about defending in handball, and have practised gaining possession through interceptions.
