Welcome to Year 2! 

LP6

Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely holiday! This half term we have a new topic .....

Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism describes a society where many different cultures live together and we will learn how we can respect and embrace similarities and differences. In our topic we will focus on Kenya and we will compare and contrast life in Kenya with life in the UK. We will look at African animals and the life and work of David Attenborough!


 

The Royal Wedding May 2018

We celebrated the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a day of festivities at UPAW! We came dressed in our best clothes and watched the wedding on a big screen in the school hall. After this we had our very own whole school reception outside in the playground! The highlight was the arrival of the ice cream van! The children went on to write lovely recounts of the days events in the form of newspaper articles.

 

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break! We have an exciting Summer Term ahead, packed with lots of great activities and opportunities.

We are continuing with our Titanic Topic in the run up to SATs (SATs will take place over two weeks beginning Monday 14th May). We will also be celebrating the Royal Wedding!

Another exciting event is our weekly visit to Weaverham library which will continue through out the summer term. Our first visit took place this week and the children thoroughly enjoyed it and behaved brilliantly!


We had a fantastic morning of Easter activities including an Easter egg hunt, cake decorating and Easter puzzles. We finished it with an Easter Bonnet parade and the children's bonnets were amazing!



Our Mothers Day Assembly was lovely, the children spoke clearly and confidently I was very impressed. Back in the classroom we had a fantastic time decorating biscuits, planting seeds, painting pictures and sharing stories with all the mums and grandmas who came to join us!


We celebrated World book Day 2018, children looked amazing in their Harry Potter themed outfits and enjoyed sharing their favourite books with their friends.

   

 

The children have made some fantastic Titanic models during their holiday. Thankyou for your support!

   

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed your half term holiday and managed to get caught reading somewhere exciting!

Our new topic is 'Titanic' and we have lots of fantastic activities planned including writing our own stories about journeys aboard the Titanic!!


 


February 2018

Year 1 & Year 2 visit St Mary’s Church and the Northwich Mosque as part of their Religious Studies

During their Religious Education lessons this half term, Year 1 and 2 children have been looking at different places of worship.

In order to bring this learning to life a visit to visit St Mary's Church in Weaverham was arranged where the Vicar, Mr Andrew Brown, explained more about the church and gave them a guided tour of the grounds. Mr Brown explained further about the practices which take place in the church and gave them some history behind the building.

Pupils then had the opportunity to visit Northwich Mosque, on Church Road, which is actually run by the uncle of a pupil in Year 2. During their visit to the mosque the children were shown around the two prayer rooms and the washing facilities before listening to an explanation of Islam and how the Mosque is used by its community members.


This term our topic is 'Star Wars!'We will be reading and writing stories set in galaxies far, far away! In our art lessons we will design and make our own aliens out of clay.

 

 

The children in Reception, Year One and Year Two enjoyed an afternoon of bonfire and firework activities. They took part in biscuit decorating, art and craft activities and even making a Guy!

    

   

  

 

CHOCOLATE EXTRAVAGANZA! 




 


Spellings

Each week the children will bring home a red spelling book. This will contain spellings linked to our learning in daily English Extra lessons. There will be a short spelling test on Monday mornings.

 

In class we have had a go at different ways of practising our spellings and we were surprised at how much fun we had! Please click on the link below for further information.
