In Year 2 we have four sayings that sum up our class.

Together
Everyone
Achieves
More

"Cooperation and collaboration are important skills, so we work together in pairs and small groups on a daily basis.  Making sensible choices on who we work with is a great base for moving into KS2."


 

“Join the going for it gang”  Everyone needs to get involved and have a try throughout the day.  It’s okay to make mistakes!

 

 

“No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.”  We are all different and each of us has special talents, whether it’s maths, art, PE or just being a kind and caring person.  There are plenty of chances to shine in Year 2 and have your talents recognised.


SURPRISE US!

“The number one rule for an amazing brain is use it or lose it.”  Everyday there is so much to learn and find out about all around us.  Asking questions is a great way to extend your knowledge.  Share your thoughts and ideas with others.

SURPRISE YOURSELF!

 

In Year 2 we are getting ready to leave Key Stage 1 and enter Key Stage 2.  We draw up our own list of things we will try to do, so that we have a happy class. Each week we take home Ozzy the Owl and complete a short account and picture of what he has done .


Some of us will become 'Free Readers' and choose our own reading books.  We receive a certificate in assembly and are responsible for keeping our own reading logs.


 We learn about all sorts of people and places and events. Such as Castles,The Rainforest and Nocturnal animals. In the Summer Term we look after the garden and develop a sense of responsibility for the environment. We have a sunflower growing competition, with the winner receiving the Golden Watering Can trophy.

We celebrate our achievements every week with a special assembly, when our work is displayed on the "Wonderwall". We can earn a special “My teacher thinks I’m magic” pencil and certificate.


Each year we visit a Victorian Kitchen at Powderham Castle to find out what it was like to work there in Victorian times. The children dress up in Victorian Costumes. They bake Welsh Cakes, scrub the floors, polish the boots, iron and dust. The visit is a fantastic opportunity to gain first hand experience of being a Victorian scullery maid or kitchen boy.

 

Our P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. If possible, please can you try to remove your child’s earrings on these days.
