2020-21 Year 2

Miss Stanley, Mrs Rayner and Mrs Davison welcome you to
the Year 2 Class of 2020.
Please check back here regularly for news
of what is happening in Year 2 this year.
Throughout the autumn term 2020, our Year 2 children achieved a great deal, despite the needed Covid-19-safety measures in place, and the confinement to their class bubble.
Some fantastic progress was seen for each individual child
and shared with you in the autumn term reports to parents, virtual class assembly
and via ClassDojo, and in our newsletters. It was also wonderful to see the children's Nativity play video at Christmas time.
In the Spring term 2021, we were frustrated that due to the national lockdown, most of our children were required to stay at home again from the 5th January 2021 and carry out remote learning in place of learning on site, but it was great to see the amazing work submitted by our Year 2 children, guided by the videos and tasks put together by Miss Stanley and the team, and thanks to a lot of support from the children's wonderful parents!
The children's learning & development has really been able to continue throughout the 2021 lockdown as a result of all the work put in by school staff and families. The children's ClassDojo portfolios provide wonderful evidence of this. Thank you all.
Our school fully re-opened on 8th March 2021.
It has been so wonderful to have the Year 2 children all back in school again.
We will update our website class pages shortly with overviews for the summer term and details of curriculum information sessions to be run by the staff in April to let you know what is planned for the summer term back in school.

Summer Term


Welcome back to the Summer term. I hope you all had a relaxed Easter holidays and are ready for another term in Year 2. 

As we enter into the first half of the summer term we will be are going to spend 2 additional weeks on our spring topic of dinosaurs. We will be learning about the possible theories the dinosaurs became extinct and writing letters to warn the dinosaurs of this. We will then look at writing some instructions explaining how to look after a dinosaur. As well as this, we will explore the evidence which exists to show that dinosaurs roamed the earth and create our own fossils.
In Year 2 we have been learning about the dinosaurs. We learnt about ammonite fossils and decided we’d like to make some of our own. In art, we found out about sculpting and how some artists such as Barbara Hepworth created sculptures from stone. We decided to use soap for our sculptures. We carefully sculpted the round shape of the ammonite first, then we added the spiral detail. We are going to add the final details next week!
This week (beginning 19.4.21) we enjoyed National Skipping Week. Here are some of us practising our new skills.The focus of this event is determination and self-belief.
