Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to Year 2 with Mr Allington and Mrs Slater-Davison! Being in Upper KS1 is an exciting and important time as the children are the oldest in the infants and so have a responsibility to show the younger children how to behave and enjoy school life. Following on from Year 1, we use a very creative and fun curriculum to help the children develop and improve their skills in all areas of learning. We enjoy having our own bank of laptops in the classroom and access to the Foundation garden where we can take our learning outdoors. Learning to 'have a go' and trying our best is crucial to Yeat 2 and we explore ways to improve our confidence and self-esteem, to make ourselves the best learners that we can be. Keep an eye on this page to see what exciting activities we have been getting up to!
Bubbles and balloons
We loved investigating how bubbles and balloons move in the air.
Year 1 Making bridges.
Year 1 had a great time in the art studio designing and making bridges to help the Billy Goats Gruff.
year 1 loved taking part in the dance workshop today. They did lots of swirling, zooming and floating linked to our weather topic and the wind.
Patching Art Centre
Year 1 had a lovely time at Patchings Art Centre. We created African art and craft using the techniques of weaving and printing. Look out for our wonderful display in the classroom.
The Year 1 children were sporting stars! They enjoyed taking part in a range of sports at The Joseph Whitaker Secondary School.
Warburton’s bread visit
We had lots of fun learning about bread making. We were very creative and made our own bread rolls.
Year 1 have enjoyed visiting Conkers. The children loved making Mud Monsters!
Sink or float?
Foundation enjoyed their science experiment today- they predicted, tested and evaluated things that float and sink. They also made their very own boats and checked to see if their designs were successful! Even the rain did not put us off...
Journeys and Transport
The children in Foundation have been enjoying their topic on 'Journeys and Transport'. They have learnt about boats, helicopters, trains, cars, planes, maps and hot air balloons. They loved our 'Wheels Day' and next week will be making thier very own boats and testing if they float or sink...
A huge thank-you to the ladies at Ravenshead Library who put on a fabulous seaside art and craft morning for our Foundation children!
