Year 2 Blog 2019-2020

Here is our performance of 'I do like to be beside the seaside!' We used our voices and percussion instruments to perform it. We all thought about keeping a steady beat and listening to each other. The children all did a fantastic job! We'd love to hear or see some of your performances at home.
When we were at school, Mrs Fretwell and Mrs Brown's class spent an afternoon writing letters and drawing pictures to send to the residents of Lily House Care Home in Ely in the hope our messages would put a smile on their face during this difficult time. We have had a lovely card from everyone at Lily House that tells us how grateful they were to receive them and some things they are doing to keep busy. We should feel really proud of ourselves for this small act of kindness. Well done! 
Robot Number One
Mrs Brown and Mrs Fretwell's class have been very lucky to be taught by a teacher from the Lane Academy Dance Group this half term. We've worked hard to learn some robot dance choreography. 

Circus Skills!

On Friday 24th January Miss Jordan’s class visited Witchford Village College for their Circus Skills Festival.

We had a lot of fun trying out all sorts of activities, such as juggling, using diabolos and spinning plates.

Some of the activities were new to us and quite tricky, but we all tried our hardest and didn’t give up!

 

Feast of Fenland Workshop

On the 17th September, Ely Museum visited Year 2 at school.

We learned all about where our food comes from and found out which of our foods could be grown locally in The Fens.

We found out about the process of growing crops, right through from ploughing to harvesting.

We did some dressing up, learned to sing songs and tasted some foods with locally grown ingredients. We also visited the market stall and bought some vegetables to take home.

We had a lot of fun and learned a lot about our local area and its farming history.

Flanimals

During the first half of term, we learned about Flanimals.

Flanimals are made-up creatures with all kinds of strange features and habits. They come from a book written by Ricky Gervais.

We had a great time designing and making our own Flanimals and habitats for them to live in. We also wrote some amazing fact files all about them.
