Year 2S
 

Welcome to Year 2s’ class page!

I’m Mrs Stammers and I teach the wonderful Year 2S. This year we are going to be super busy learning lots of exciting things through our topics. They are:

  • What a Wonderful World
  • From Pandas to Penguins
  • Food, Glorious Food!

 

We can’t wait to share all of our hard work with you!

 

What a Wonderful World

 “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Genesis 1:31

We read and retold how God created the world. This gave us lots of wonder questions and made us so thankful that we wrote our own special prayers.


Literacy

We retold the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea and wrote our own amazing stories about different animals who visited for breakfast, dinner and lunch!

 

I was so impressed with the children’s storytelling; we visited the local Nursing Home to brighten up their day.

We wrote invitations to invite our families to our own tea party and followed instructions to create our own party food.

WARNING: Be careful the next time you have your tea! You just never know who will visit…

Art and Design and Technology

We have learnt all about the local artist, Mackenzie Thorpe. In fact, we learnt so much that we had to create information pages to let other people know all about him. Here’s some of the fantastic art work that we created too.

We were also inspired by Andy Goldsworthy’s work with nature, so we used autumnal colours to weave a tile and combined them to create this stunning piece of art work.

Science

We’ve been out and about exploring different habitats in our local environment.

Brrrr! Ever wondered how polar bears keep warm?

Well, we know! We planned and carried out an experiment using fat and ice to see if blubber really does keep you warm. We were amazed with the results!

Oh, didn’t you know? In Year 2S, we are part-time surgeons. We operate on words, remove some letters and put them back together with an apostrophe in our contraction surgery.
