Year 2 Term 2

Our learning this term
The current topic web for this term can be found below. It provides information about the topics children will cover in each subject area. 
World Book Day.
On Thursday 7th March, to celebrate World Book Day, Year 2 were invited to dress as their favourite character from a book. The children watched a live show of Helen Stephens, talking about her special books, including How To Hide A Lion. Year 2 took part in peer reading with Nursery, and a book swap where they were able to swap their preloved books with new ones from other children. What a great day we had!
Storytelling Week
To celebrate storytelling week (29th January - 2nd February), parents from the class were invited in to share a book with the class. We were lucky to hear so many lovely stories, and loved showing our school value of respect by listening so carefully. 
P4C homework
This term we have answered the question 'Do too many children's storied have happy endings?' We answered the question in any way that we wanted to, and had some really creative responses.
Down Syndrome Day
To mark Down Syndrome Day on 21st March, we had a crazy hair day. Look at how crazy Year 2's hair is!
NSPCC Number Day
On Friday 2nd February, we took part in NSPCC Number Day, where we were able to take part in maths activities all day! We were able to use the ipads to access TT Rockstars, create tessellation patterns, play board games and get involved in some active maths outside, on an outdoor maths trail.
