Year 2 - St Martin
Summer term 2!
I hope you all had a good rest over half term and managed to get out into the sunshine. Put some photos of what you got up to onto the class dojo and I will put them onto our class story so you can see what your classmates have been doing.
I have loved seeing all of the hard work you have been doing at home while school is closed. Keep uploading it onto the dojo system so I can look at it and comment. If you need a new home learning book or any other resources to help you with your work, ring up the school or email and we can arrange for you to come and get it.
Stay safe and stay well all of you - I miss seeing your smiling faces!
Learning from home
Easter craft! (Send in photos of what you have been doing and I will add them to our class page.)
Summer Term Home Learning
New learning will be added at the start of each week
THE CROSS IS AN IMAGE OF OUR FAITH- Ordinary things can remind us of the love of Jesus- A cross of shoes says "Walk with Jesus." Think of his love.
Children's Daily Timetable
14th February - We looked at work by the Russian artist Kandinsky. We designed valentines cards for our loved ones inspired by his concentric circles pieces.
12th February - We had a wonderful morning on Hampstead Heath investigating food chains and habitats in the secret garden. We were very lucky and enjoyed one of the very few dry, sunny days between Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis!
Fun on Hampstead Heath
Welcome to Year 2!
The children in year 2 did themselves proud in the Autumn term – they tried hard and tackled new challenges with real enthusiasm!
We transported ourselves back to 1665 and 1666, when London was going through the plague and then The Great Fire. We have pretended to be plague doctors who used all sorts of extraordinary methods to try to stop the plague from spreading. On our visit to The Museum of London we got to try on the leather hats that firemen would have used and we even saw the leather buckets that they used to try and put out the fire. What a relief we live in the 21st century and have amazing emergency services to keep us safe!
We were captivated by the magic of Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine. We thought of lots of different words to describe what a mean and cruel woman George’s grandma was! We had a great time inventing potions of our own and thinking of the dreadful things they might do.
We love playing maths games like Don’t roll a six, Dotty Sixes and Caterpillar Chance to help us get more familiar with numbers. It was great fun having our parents in school one morning to play with us. We are looking forward to them coming in again soon.
As part of our black history month celebrations, we took part in a drumming and dance workshop with Kwame, a Ghanian musician who came to the school for a day.
In Science we learnt about staying healthy. We sorted out foods that are OK to eat every day, and others that we should only have as treats! It was great to have a visit from the Francis Crick Institute to learn all about viruses and how they spread. Ask us about glitter and the importance of washing hands. We try to go on a run each day to help boost our fitness and strengthen our hearts. We had fun measuring our pulse and seeing how different forms of exercise made it go up.
We have come back to school refreshed and renewed after the holidays. We are excited about our new learning for the term!
