Caterpillars in Year 2

On Thursday 18th April, Year 2 had an exciting delivery of 5 tiny caterpillars.  They have already grown rapidly and we have learnt lots about life cycles in Science.  The children have been using the word s chrysalis and metamorphosis with such confidence!  We can’t wait to observe the next stage of their life cycle.  We will keep you posted.

Y2 were amazed in Science this week, we made some close observations for 20 minutes of 3 woodlice in a tray.  Each quarter of the tray was set up differently so we could learn about what conditions they prefer for their habitat.

We learnt that most, but not all, of the woodlice prefer dark, damp conditions for their habitat.

Design and Technology

We have had a wonderful week learning about how people in 1666 bravely tackled the terrible fire in London. We learnt all about modern fire engines and compared them to the fire service in1666. Working in small groups, we were challenged to make our own moving fire engines. We spent a fun afternoon investigating wheels and axels and we even made a prototype of a fire engine before designing and making our final product. We all worked brilliantly in our teams, and we were thrilled with our fire engines; we used lots of new skills and we had great fun making them!

Church Visit

Year Two went on a wonderful visit to All Saints Church in Sedgley. We were given a very warm welcome by Reverend Catherine and spent a fabulous morning in church. We played a great game of Eye Spy where we had to go around the church looking for special items, including the font, stain glass windows, candles, pews and bibles. We learnt all about Baptisms and the special time of Advent.

Year 2 welcomed our parents into school to join us for an exciting History lesson! To our surprise we travelled back in time to 1666 where we met the very famous Samuel Pepys who was thrilled to be reunited with his rather smelly cheese! Samuel Pepys told us all about the events in London at the time of the Great Fire of London and we were able to ask him lots of questions to help us learn about the past. It was a very exciting morning and we learnt so many fascinating facts!

Children in Year 2 imagined that they were a young Prince Charles this week and wrote powerful speeches to persuade the world to protect our environment.

 

They bravely took to the podium to deliver their super speeches to world leaders and we were really impressed with their confidence, clarity and passion.

Year 2 have been investigating how materials can be changed by stretching, twisting, bending and squashing them.  This week's Science was to stretch a curly wurly as far as possible and measure the length of it.  It smelt rather like Cadbury World in our classrooms, but the children had great fun testing out different ways to warm up and stretch the caramel.  The winning pair stretched theirs a massive 205cm! Amazing effort - well done!

Year 2 were absolutely amazed to find a lion on the loose on the KS1 playground! The golden lion kept the children entertained as he darted around the playground, running and jumping on all of the equipment! The children bravely decided to feed him some juicy sausages which he greedily gobbled up! Before we knew it, the lion disappeared down the school drive with a hop, skip and a jump! We think the lion was from the book we are reading 'Katie in London'. The lion's visit really inspired us, and the children did some fantastic writing! What an exciting day!

50 Year 2 children have had an amazing three-day residential at Edgmond Hall in Shropshire. We all took part in some challenging outdoor, adventurous activities that included problem solving, a blind fold trail, woodland walks, den building, pond dipping, meeting the pets, campfire singing and orienteering. We even had a seventh birthday to celebrate there, with a special flag being flown and a giant cake for us all! The children had great fun, made some lasting memories and forged new bonds with both their peers and the staff. We have some very happy, grubby and tired children. What a way to end our journey together in Key Stage 1. Bring on Year 3!

On Friday 20th May, Year 2 had a brilliant day learning all about African, culture including singing, dancing, making necklaces and playing Maasai games. The children looked fabulous and had great fun in their animal and safari outfits. We even had a special visit from one of the children's grandparents to share all her amazing experiences of living in Africa!
