Year 2

Summer Term

Hello and welcome back!!

We are really excited for the Summer Term and looking forward to some sun! (Hopefully!) Our new topic is Deep Down Under. We will be learning about Australia, learning about the location, climate, plants and animals that are there. Take a look at all the learning that will take place this term!

Can you believe Year Two travelled to Australia and back within the school day? We can't either! We had an amazing time at the airport, using our passports to check in and collecting our boarding passes from the ticket inspectors. They do look very familiar, don't they? Take a look at our pictures of the very exciting journey...

Spring Term

Hello and welcome back!!

We are really excited for the Spring Term and our new topic is As Cold as Ice. We will be learning about the Arctic and Antarctic and all the animals that live there. Take a look at all the learning that will take place this term!

Sutton Town Park
We have been learning about two AMAZING artists whose names are Andy Goldsworthy and Nils Udo. We loved how they used nature in their artwork. As a class we discussed the patterns, shapes and sizes of the objects in their sculptures. We had the opportunity to create our own sculptures by collecting objects at the local park. Just like Andy Goldsworthy and Nils Udo we observed the patterns, shapes and sizes of the objects we found. Some of the objects were HUGE! We transported them back to school so that we could create the sculptures in small groups. We loved experimenting with the objects and problem solved to attach the objects together. It was very difficult! Finally, we wrote a recount about our learning. 
Our Writing
We often work in small groups or pairs to plan our writing. Here we are using a story board to plan our writing for a story with recurring language. You are always welcome to come in and take a look at our books if you are interested to find out what we have been up to!

Electric Trains

On 27th September Year Two went to Sutton Coldfield to experience an electric train journey. They compared the similarities and differences between an electric train and a steam train and then stopped off at Sutton Park for a healthy, tasty salad. (A snack they had prepared themselves the day before.)

Year Two then got to visit Ted's Potatoes for a lovely lunch before riding the electric train once more to return to school. Here are some pictures!

Steam Trains

Year Two thoroughly enjoyed the train journey through the countryside at the Severn Valley Railway and enjoyed what they could see and hear from the steam train. To their surprise, as they looked out of the windows, Year Two saw some amazing animals from the railway carriage including some HUGE rhinos! Take a look at some of our pictures.

Welcome to Year Two!

 

Miss Rowaiye is the class teacher in Year Two and Miss Sheppard is our Teaching Assistant. We are supported by Miss Wood, our Hearing Resource Base teacher and Mrs Todd, our Hearing Resource Base Teaching Assistant. We are looking forward to building a working partnership between parents, carers, staff and pupils in order for the children to reach their full potential.

 

Autumn Term

This term our theme is 'From a Railway Carriage' and we are excited to be learning about how railway travel has changed through the last few centuries. We will also be considering the impact this has had in our local area and investigating the upcoming changes to our railway system in relation to the new 'HS2' line, directly linking London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. On 13th September we hope to visit Severn Valley Railway to experience a steam train journey for ourselves!
