Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to Year 2 with Miss Taylor 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. Learning to 'have a go' and trying our best is crucial to Year 2 and we explore ways to improve our confidence and self-esteem, to make ourselves the best learners that we can be (whilst having lots of fun along the way!). Keep an eye on this page to see what exciting activities we have been getting up to!

This week we used music and ribbons to create a firework dance. We built a bonfire with leaves and twigs and danced around it, using high and low movements, twirls and jumps. Finally we added music to make the sounds of different fireworks and made our movements match the sounds....
Teddy Bear Picnic
To celebrate the end of our memory box topic, we invited our teddy bears to an extra special picnic. We designed, made and evaluated a range of sandwiches and played circle games. We had a fabulous day.... we think our teddy bears did too!
