Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 
Welcome back to Term 3! This term, our new learning project is called 'What is a Toy's Story?' We look forward to inviting you into school for the afternoon on Wednesday 31st January to share our learning so far. 
Who Lives in a Habitat Like This?   
We do!
As part of our Learning Project, we learnt the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We then dressed up as different animals and invited ourselves to our own Tea Party. We followed instructions to make peppermint creams and chocolate crispy cakes and we wrote lists of all the things we would need for our tea party. Before we ate our delicious treats, we played some animal party games and also showed off our best dance moves. We had a fantastic time and now we will be finding out more information about different animals.
To help us learn about animals and their habitats, we had a visit from Wendy and Alex from Edupet. We were able to hold lots of different animals, found out about what they liked to eat and where they would live in the wild. We had such a great time.

Bonfire Night Poetry.
 
We have been working hard to make our writing more exciting! We learnt all about noun phrases and how to expand them by using adjectives to add extra detail and description.
 
As a class, we watched a video and looked at pictures of fireworks and bonfires. Then, we thought of lots of expanded noun phrases that we could use to describe them. Finally, we used our expanded noun phrases in sentences to make our own bonfire night poems.
 
We have made them into a book to look at in the classroom.
