What a super start to the new term in Year 2!
As the weather is improving we are enjoying more outdoor PE sessions and we have started to play Rounders. We are working to improve our throwing accuracy and remembering to spread out when fielding.
In Maths we are measuring height and length and learning how to use rulers accurately. In Literacy we are enjoying the adventures of The Lonely Beast and we’re looking forward to retelling his tale.
On Friday, to celebrate Children In Need day, Year 2 worked together to design and create their very own nature Pudsey Bear. We only used natural things that had fallen, like leaves and apples.
We had a great day at Escot! Have a look at our photos…
We have been singing a song called “Friendship”. We have been learning about the different parts of a song including the intro, chorus and verse as well as finding the pulse of the music. Here we are adding some lovely harmonies using the xylophones!
We’ve been busy scientists this week! We’ve been investigating a range of everyday items and carrying out experiments with them, including making whirlpools, testing a non-Newtonian fluid (quicksand!) and creating our own lemonade. Here are some of our favourite photos of our learning this week…

This week Year 2 visited the Tiverton Museum to take part in their STEM fair, celebrating all things Science. There were many engaging activities for us to complete and we were able to explore lots of scientific concepts: light and sound, materials and friction to name a few.
Bubbles, bubbles and more bubbles!
Making the sounds of a fire engine!
Team work builds a throne fit for royalty!
The children have finished their puppets! They have sewn their puppets and decorated them. Their evaluations have shown how pleased they are and how much they have improved their skills. We hope your puppets enjoy their new homes!
