Year 2 Blog 2021-2022

So far in the new year, children in Year 2 enjoyed drawing and painting pictures following Quentin Blake's style. They have produced some wonderful replicas. 
We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Happy Diwali!
The children loved learning about Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita this week. Both classes have acted out the story. On Friday we had an activity session when children decorated Rangoli patterns, they printed on large pieces of paper, they looked at Indian artefacts, they made firework pictures and dressed up.

This half term in Music we learned to play a simple tune on the Glockenspiel. Children did amazingly well but videoing the whole class was rather noisy. Here is just one clip of some children practising in a more quieter environment. We hope you enjoy watching it.

Bread making was a huge success! 
Take a look at these photos and see the concentration on children's faces. :)
They all did a wonderful job. Unfortunately our ovens were not that great, some bread was slightly over baked but I do hope it tasted good. 
Year 2 enjoyed designing their bread, measuring water and sand as well as shaping and kneading play dough. We can't wait until we can weigh flour, water, yeast, sugar and salt and properly knead our bread dough next week. 
We practised playing the glockenspiel during our music lessons and we are getting so good at it. 
In RE we were learning about Holy Communion and Shabbat. Children enjoyed trying bread and red grape juice. 
Children have really enjoyed designing and making their Flanimals this week. 
Welcome to the Year 2 blog!
 
The children have already done some fabulous learning these past few days and it is lovely to have them all back after the summer holidays.
