Year 2

Selly Manor Museum

On Tuesday 26th April, Year 2 went to visit Selly Manor Museum to learn some more about the Tudors after our History lessons last half term. They had a wonderful day exploring the Tudor house, dressing up and playing games. 


Grammar Workshop

On Friday, we shared our grammar lesson with our parents. 

We learnt about pronouns using 'The Storm Whale' story to help us. 

Reading Workshop
On Tuesday, Year 2 really enjoyed welcoming their parents into school to share one of their modelled shared reading lessons.
The parents found out how we teach the children to read through whole class modelled shared reading lessons, group guided reading sessions and individual reading using Floppy's Phonics, banded books and Accelerated Reader and also about the six comprehension skills that the children need to develop in Key Stage 1 in order to understand what they are reading.
Armed with this information, the parents joined the children who were sharing the start of a new book together; 'Hermelin the Detective Mouse' by Mini Grey. They read about Hermelin helping the residents of Offley Street to find all their missing belongings.
The parents and children were then detectives themselves as they worked together to use the text to complete a table all about these items. Some of the missing details were easy to find because they were in the text (retrieval) but some of them were not in the text so they had to use clues to help them to reach an answer (inference).
Many thanks to all the parents who came. It was a wonderful morning to share together and we're really glad that you found it helpful.


Christmas Retreat Day January 2022

Our first three days back at school were very reflective and prayerful as we focused on the story of Christmas. We thought about Mary's great belief and trust in God as she said yes at the Annunciation, the difficulties Mary and Joseph faced on their journey to Bethlehem and the tough and dangerous journey made by the Three Wise Men. This work culminated with our whole school retreat day when we reflected on Jesus being a poor king who came to save us, the shepherds being told about Jesus by the angels and just as the Wise Men brought Jesus gifts, we considered carefully what gifts we can give Jesus every day through our thoughts, words and actions. 


Pilgrimage 2021

We made a pilgrimage journey around school to show how we are 'walking alongside' all the refugees who have to make dangerous journeys to find safety and better lives.

We had times of quiet reflection and wrote prayers about our hopes for refugees.

Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Norman Workshop 30th June 2021

One Day Creative came to visit us in school to lead a workshop that had been especially written for us to follow our units of work in History and Art.

We used all of our previous learning and new learning from the workshop to join with lots of different activities in pairs, in groups and as a whole class. We created and acted out an advert for an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, acted out a poem, freeze-framed and role played events and played invader games. 

We really enjoyed using our historical knowledge, skills and understanding, our speaking and listening skills and our imaginations to reinforce and build on our learning.

Many thanks to One Day Creative for a fantastic morning!


Here is the Viking poem that we learnt.

Christmas Party 18th December 2020

We had a fantastic Christmas party. We made snowmen, reindeer hot chocolate and baubles. We decorated gingerbread Christmas jumpers and coloured over very own Christmas mugs. We danced and played musical bumps and musical statues. We played team games and had party food. A few weeks ago, we wrote letters to Father Christmas and he visited us on Zoom. He had all our letters and said that we are all on the good list. It was a great end to a great term!
