Welcome to Year 2! Here are just a few snapshots of life in year 2 at Birchwood Avenue!
Whilst a lot of this half term has been taken up working towards KS1 SATs, we have had time to enjoy our latest topic - 'Wriggle and Crawl'. To introduce our topic, we met with some animals who were bought into school from a local zoo. We also went on a bug hunt around school. We have been exploring the writing of Eric Carle and comparing the characters from four of his books. We are also going to be using his stories as a basis for our own stories we will be writing about the bugs we are currently creating..

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.
