Welcome to Year 2! Here are just a few snapshots of life in year 2 at Birchwood Avenue!
In Year 2 this term we have been exploring the seven seas! To introduce our topic, we had a pirate day during which we each made our own pirate ship. We read 'Just a bit of wind' and learned what it would be like to attend Patagonia Clatterbottom's Pirate School. We also created underwater scenes using a variety of different materials. In maths, we've been doing lots of hand on work with multiplication and division.

Muck, Mess and Mixtures!
We will be making a lot of mess as part of our 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures' topic. We will be exploring the work of lots of different artists and trying to replicate their work. We will be conducting several science experiments to explore the affects of mixing different materials. We will be making our own playdough characters to write a story about. As well as all of our messy fun, we will be focused on improving our number skills in maths, our throwing and catching in PE and our rhythm in music and dance.
