Return to Children

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 where learning takes place with Miss Sibthorpe, Mrs Brislin & Mrs Jones!

The children have made a brilliant start to the new school year and have all quickly settled in to their new classroom. We are enjoying exploring the Year 2 curriculum and are eager to challenge ourselves!

We are enjoying our English topic of familiar stories, where the children have been looking at some well-loved stories and basing their learning around them.  So far, we’ve had some excellent similes and setting descriptions for the story ‘Don’t Look in this Book’.

We have also been focusing on developing our ‘growth mind-sets’ and understanding that mistakes always help us to improve and move our learning on.  We know that if we work hard, we can achieve anything we set our minds to.

Mrs Lilley and I can’t wait to see all the amazing work that Year 2 will be doing this year and look forward to seeing you all blossom into lifelong learners!

Christmas Science Enquiry!

As a way of developing our scientific enquiry skills, each year group took part in a Christmas themed science experiment. The children had to investigate dissolving candy canes, making decisions about the scientific questions they wanted to answer and deciding how best to carry out the experiment. It was fascinating seeing how the different liquids effected the speed at which the candy canes dissolved.
