Year 2 BH
Welcome to 2BH!
In Year 2 we explore a broad and complex curriculum that inspires us to think creatively, write with passion and interest and solve mathematical problems. Take a look at what we've been up to recently...
We had a great time taking part in some outdoor learning! We learned how to use a compass and even used a map of our school to find hidden numbers and letters! It was a very exciting morning and we can't wait to use our new skills again soon.
Our wild reading corner!
We love to read in 2BH and we enjoy spending quiet time in our reading area.
We have been looking at animals (including humans) in science lessons. We learned about what animals need to survive and what they need to thrive. One of the things we learned about was good hygiene as a way to stay healthy. We looked at how important it is to wash out hands by using glitter to see how far germs spread. We also looked at the importance of washing our hands properly by experimenting with bread. We touched the bread with unwashed hands, washed with water hands and washed with soap and water hands. We were shocked by the results and could clearly see from the mould how much cleaner out hands were after water and soap!
Well-being is very important in school and in our class. We spent Yellow Day learning about feelings, how to treat others and what makes us special. We looked at the book 'Black All Around!' and looked at celebrating our own identities. It was a super day filled with relaxation activities and positive thinking!
We read 'The New Jumper' and learned about how we should celebrate our differences. We talked about how it is important to be ourselves because we are all unique and special in our own ways.
We drew our own characters from the book and designed our own jumpers that were all unique! We used different materials and colours to collage the jumpers. We also completed some writing about what makes us different, including our likes and dislikes.
Our Super P.E. lessons!
In P.E. we have been developing our running, jumping and throwing techniques. We played games, learned how to defend and found the most powerful ways to start and stop. We have looked at the effects of exercise on our body too!
September Attendance Award!
Our class had the highest attendance during September and won the attendance trophy!
Literacy: When the Dragons Came
Our class story this term is set in a perfect place called Poppledown Town... but the people who live there are in for a shock when dragons arrive! What will the dragons get up to? Will the people and the dragons ever be able to get along? We can't wait to find out!
