Welcome to Year 2

Our whole school theme in Spring term is "Sustainability"
In Year 2 we have thought about how we might save the planet and what we can do to save the planet for the future. The children have come up with ways such as reduce plastic in the sea and pick up litter off the pavement as initial ideas to protect our planet for future generations.
A key text we have been reading as a whole class is 'Greta's Story' the school girl who went on strike to save the planet. We have begun to look in science at the effects of climate change on habitats and the animals that live there. The children have enjoyed looking at woodland habitats so far and finding out what animals live there and key features of a woodland habitat.
In art we have looked at pointillism and the artist Seurat, the children really enjoyed using the point of a cotton bud to create the effect of a tree in the style of Seurat.
Take a look at our parent information sheet to find out more of what we are learning about in Year 2.
What we get up to in
On Friday 15th November the children really enjoyed a morning at Blyth Sports Centre participating in a fantastic Hula Hoop Festival. The children were fully involved and enjoyed every minute of it .. as did the teachers! The children learnt new tricks and techniques for hula hooping and can't wait to practise at home and on the playground with the equipment. A great, fun way to exercise!
