No bullies here – thanks to Year 2’s super powers!

Who would think it was so exciting to wear your own clothes to school!!  Well it is, and we have had lots of fun today for Children in Need to end a busy week in Year 2.

In English we have written our own version of Rapunzel.  Everyone has been very imaginative and we have had all sorts of characters stepping into our stories (bunnies with long ears, knights with shiny armour, turtles with long stretchy arms, evil goblins, you name it!).  We have written a beginning, middle and end to our stories and they are very impressive!

In Maths we have continued adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers and have used our strategies to try to answer word problems.

Our History lesson came alive in the classroom this week with various role plays of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole set up around the room.  We cleaned the hospital, bandaged wounded soldiers and sailed across the sea from Jamaica to the Crimea in a boat.  It was a great afternoon and we talked about the similarities and differences between these two significant figures.

Scarlet class were lucky to have a visit from Forest class who shared their dreidal spinning tops that they had made in RE.  It was a lovely opportunity for the Year 5s to explain to the younger children how to play with them.

With it being National  Anti-bullying week, we have talked a lot about being kind to each other and how we should talk to an adult if we need to.  We created posters and superheroes to combat bullying.

It has been lovely to catch up with you all at parent’s evening this week.   We hope you enjoyed looking through your child’s books and seeing how hard they have been working.

Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and have a go at TTRockstars (x2, x5 and x10).

We hope you all have a good weekend.

The Year 2 team.
