What a fantastic first week back! You have all worked extremely hard this week and impressed me with your enthusiasm for your learning. It’s been lovely hearing all about what you have been up to whilst we haven’t seen each other face to face and I know you have all loved being back with your friends.
The children have made a fantastic start on our new flight topic this week. We learnt that hot air balloons were first invented by the Montgolfier brothers in 1783 and that the first flight was in Paris. Children have then designed and made their very one hot air balloons.
We loved hearing all about your favourite books as part of our National Story Telling Week activities last week. I have a few books to add to my reading list after hearing how good they are.
Thank you Year 2 for continuing to work hard and share all of your work with us. We love seeing all of your work and are very impressed with your learning.
Here is a selection of what has been shared recently.
Miss Gregory, Miss Heath and Miss Gerrard have been blown away by all of the excellent work we have been receiving! Thank you for all of your hard work. We can’t wait to see what work you share with us this week.
We have been recreating favourite artwork, retelling stories, creating pagoda dolls as well as getting creative following instructions in our English.
As part of our learning about materials, today we investigated if different materials were waterproof or not. We then used that knowledge to design a new waterproof coat for Paddington bear. Super work!
Year 2 today have been learning about which coins they could use to make a given amount.

This half term Year 2 will be looking at the art work of Paul Klee and Joan Miro. We have started our topic by researching each artist to find out more about them. I’m sure you will agree they have done a fantastic job of their research!
Thank you Year 2 for all of your hard work again today! We are so impressed with all of the work coming in.
Today we have been continuing to subtract and learn our Phase 5 graphemes. We have also shared our Paddington Bear story and been on a material hunt.
