The Hodgeheg (19 images)

Year 2 have been reading The Hodgeheg this term. The story is all about Max, a hedgehog who wants to learn how to cross the road safely. We started thinking about real hedgehogs and who looks after them when they are hurt. We had a visit from Secret World Animal Sanctuary and decided we wanted to raise money to try and help the injured and orphaned hedgehogs. We had a mufti day and made cakes, clay hedgehogs and book marks to sell. We raised £105.00! We are all really proud that the money will help look after lots of animals.

Year 2 Fire Safety (7 images)

In year 2 our topic this term is Flaming Fires. We have been learning all about the Great Fire of London as well as fire safety. We wrote instructions telling others what they should do if there was a fire in their home and we practiced the "STOP, DROP and ROLL" procedure. We also read and retold the story of Francis the Firefly - a young firefly who caused a fire by playing with matches. We all know now that you must never play with matches or lighters.

Year 2 have had a really busy term and everyone has worked their socks off. We have been learning all about Jungles. We have learnt about rain forests and the animals and plants that live there. We learnt about the people who live in the jungle and how they survive. We have done some fantastic writing and paintings and we created a jungle village from junk! In maths we did a dominoes investigation - we had to use our understanding of numbers and pattern - it was great fun.

All the children in Year 2 had a great time taking part in Pancake relay races on Tuesday. We timed the races and recorded our results. We used the results as part of our maths lesson the next day. After the races we all ate delicious pancakes with lemon and sugar or maple syrup but we didn't eat the pancakes we used in the races!

YEAR 2 VISIT FROM THE FIREFIGHTERS! (10 images)

YEAR 2 VISIT FROM THE FIREFIGHTERS! Year 2 had a fantastic morning learning all about the important job our fire fighters do. A team from North Somerset fire service came to visit us and talked all about the different things that fire fighters have to do. They taught us what we should do if we discovered a fire in our homes and how to protect ourselves if there was a fire. They explained that we should all have smoke detectors in our homes and taught us the STOP, DROP and ROLL procedure if we were ever on fire. We all had a go at STOPPING, DROPPING and ROLLING on the crash mats. Year 2 children were lucky enough to have the opportunity not only to see all of the equipment on the fire truck but to also sit inside it and have a go at shooting the hose! We also tried on the firefighters costumes – they were really heavy and hot. Afterwards we read a story called Francis the Firefly and learnt how important it is that we never play with matches or lighters.

Year 2 - Summer 2016 (29 images)

Year 2 have been looking at all things “jungle” this term. Our WOW day involved the children going on a jungle animal hunt as well as making animal masks and eating jungle fruit. We created a jungle display in our classroom using paint, chalk, charcoal and coloured pens with lots of different animals, birds, insects and types of plants. We did lots of research using books and the internet and made our own jungle fact files, Y2C added 3d pictures to make them even more interactive. We created a 3d jungle village using different types of boxes and other craft materials. Our village had to have all the things that a real jungle village would have plus some extras – Y2V even had a waterfall and rapids! We also went outside and created a collage using resources that we found in our school playground.
