Welcome to our Year 2 Page!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
We have been working extremely hard this half term and the days are flying by. We are focussing on our topic of Pirates and the children have been particularly keen on our Geography lessons where we have been looking a continents, countries, islands and oceans using Atlases. The children have looked a little at Madagascar and what makes that Island so special. We particularly liked talking about the animals that live there. As a Literacy focus we have been linking our work to look at Nim's Island and The Pirates Next Door. The children have loved these stories and have produced some exciting writing. We have even found out about some real pirates like Anne Bonney and Blackbeard.
Recently we have been enjoying our Outdoor Classroom Day. We made our own viewfinders and hunted for landscapes around the school grounds so we could replicate them in our art books. We tried hard to add detail and make out sketches interesting. In the afternoon we had a go at building mini landscapes out of materials we found around the Year R area. We talked about features such as beaches, mountains, rivers, trees and lots more. The children were very imaginative and proud of their creations. Take a look!
Here's a pirate joke
Why are pirates so horrible?
Because they ARRRRRGH

Homework is now set on a weekly basis except on longer breaks where we will set a larger project piece of homework.
The children are responsible for changing their own reading books in Year 2 and should be reading regularly at home as well as practising class spellings.
