Yesterday Year 2 enjoyed a lovely day at the seaside. First we went to the circus where we saw some incredible acts which left the children open mouthed. Then we had our lunch on the beach and managed to play with our toys, even though the sand was very wet! We had a delicious ice cream before we left to the sealife centre. The children were amazed by some of the creatures that they saw and thoroughly enjoyed their visit. The children were all very well behaved and the parent helpers were brilliant – thank you!

As an end of a SATs celebration Year 2 had a space day. They dressed up in space clothes, played space games, made space pictures, made and are delicious space fruit kebabs and learnt lots of interesting facts about space. Then, in the afternoon, they had a space disco and enjoyed a rocket lolly to cool down. It was a lovely way to celebrate all of their hard work!

Year 2 have been practising their instruction writing and making delicious, refreshing drinks at the same time. After making this delicious drink they wrote excellent instructions which included time openers, connectives, adverbs and brackets and they also wrote introductions and conclusions to engage the reader. Well done!

Year 2 designed their own dragons from Dragonia Island after receiving a letter from the famous explorer Jack Alexander. They then wrote incredible non-chronological reports about their dragon. To practise some of their design technology skills they made dragon eggs for these creatures to hatch from!! They thought very carefully about how to decorate them to reflect what their dragon was like. Take a look…

This week was Science Week and Year 2 were busy being little scientists both in school and at home! Linked to our literacy and geography topics the children investigated where in the classroom ice would melt the quickest. They made great predictions and made sure it was a fair test. Many children were pleased that their predictions were correct when the first ice cubes to melt were the ones closest to the heater. Thank you for also completing your own science experiments at home, the children have really enjoyed them!

As part of our health topic we designed and made healthy fruit smoothies with the help of Sweet Express in Denton. The children loved tasting a variety of fruits to decide what to put into their smoothie. They then chose a name for their smoothie and designed the packaging. Finally, they got to taste their smoothie. The children loved it! A massive thank you to Sweet Express for their help.

Year 2 could open their own pizza parlour after becoming experts at making healthy pitta pizzas. Focusing on the importance of a balanced meal we made sure that we included food for energy,  (pitta bread) foods for growth (cheese, ham) and foods for health (vegetables). The children loved making their pizzas and enjoyed eating them even more!

Year 2 have been learning all about what it means to be healthy. Over the last few weeks they have learnt all about the importance of a balanced diet and exercise in order to lead a healthy life. The children enjoyed tasting lots of different fruits, and we really enjoyed watching their faces as they ate limes! Half of Year 2 also had a brilliant time at DCC where they took part in a range of sporting activities to improve their fitness. Great work Year 2!
