Year 2 Hub
Here you can find out more about what we’ve been up to in our Year 2 classes and see what is planned over coming weeks. Don’t forget to take a look at our news stories in main news section too!
Our latest topic is ‘Near and Far ‘ – Monday 16th September to Friday 25th October 2019
The children will understand what makes their local area unique and special and make comparisons to a contrasting place far away, in this case Dubai. We have links with a school in Dubai which will enable the children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the wider world through interacting with pupils attending a RAK Academy school. They will develop a sense of community and find out what they can do to protect and improve it.
We will learn about the key features of these areas, make comparisons and look at what makes these areas unique. We will design and produce a leaflet for other children of the same age, prompting the attractions that Poole has to offer.
Highlights of the topic will include;
- Each class producing a child friendly leaflet advertising the different attractions in Poole.
- Writing letters and postcards to our link school in Dubai and creating diary entries.
We are holding a Year 2 Parent Workshop on Wednesday 25th September at 2.45pm. Come along and see the children presenting their ‘Travelling Ted Journals’ that they completed over the Summer holidays.
Year 2 children will be going on a boat trip around Poole Harbour with a member of the RSPB team to explore the amazing and diverse wildlife that we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep.
Please see attached link for this half term’s Home Learning Challenge. This will also be sent out via Parentmail and a paper copy sent home with each child.
On Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th April we received visits from an Owl Sanctuary and a Bat Rescue Centre as part of our new topic ‘After Dark’. We learnt fascinating facts about the owls and bats enabling us to deepen our knowledge and understanding and ‘get up close’ to these amazing creatures!
Here are some photographs of space stations and rockets that we made at our Parent Workshop at the end of our ‘3,2,1 Blast off!’ project
