Here you will find information about the topics we have covered over the year and the trips and events that we have undertaken. We like to get out and about in the local community and enjoy many visitors coming into school.  

Year 2 encourages and focuses on independence and offers many responsibilities to the children to take on roles within the classroom and the school as a whole.

Take a look at what we have been learning about and enjoy viewing the photos of our trips and events. 

 

 

Autumn Term 2017

 

The Autumn term was a busy one! It began with our science topic of cats and dogs through the stories of Emily Gravett. We looked at how animals can change as they grow. This included looking at human growth.

Puppets

Linked to our science topic, the children designed their own pet puppet in DT. They had to learn to over sew to join two pieces of fabric together. They really enjoyed this and were very proud of their final product.

 

 

 

 

 

Ceilidh Dance Festival

We were lucky enough to take part in the local Ceilidh Dance Festival which links to the traditional British Culture of folk dancing and live music. All the children learnt the dances in workshops in school and some of them represented Devonshire at the festival in October.

 

 

 

 

 

 The Gunpowder Plot

The children learnt about why and how we celebrate Bonfire night and made hand print firework pictures. They thoroughly enjoyed finding out all about Guy Fawkes and this intriguing event from the past. There was some thought-provoking discussion about whether his actions were justified or not!

 

 

 

 

Spinnaker Tower

Our first trip of the term was to the Spinnaker Tower where children were given a great understanding of a bird’s eye view.

 

 

 

 

Remembrance

For Remembrance Day children made their own clay poppies and as a year group we laid fingerprint poppy wreaths at the Naval War Memorial on Southsea seafront.

 

 

 

 

 

We finished the half term performing our Nativity, Prickly Hay, which linked very well with the RE topic, Angels, and how important they were as messengers to the Christmas story.

 

  A big thank you to all those parents who joined us for Santa's Workshop. They were well attended and both adults and children seemed to have lots of fun.
