Year 2 (2016-2017)

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to our class page. In this area you will able to find information and photographs of some of the things we have been up to in Year 2. 

Some of the fun activities Y2 have enjoyed.

We have been busy last half term and now have another busy (and hard working) half term. There will be extra maths homework going home this Friday just to help with multiplying and dividing, bring back after the bank holiday weekend. Mrs Marsh.

Year 2 have been extremely busy so far this half term! We have had a WOW start to our new topic 'The Farm Shop'  by inviting a farmer to come and talk to us about crops and farming! Mandy the farmer even bought us some new books about growing sunflowers, and shown us how we make bread and cereals from the seeds cultivated! We have investigated seeds in a range of fruits and we enjoyed tasting the different fruits from peppers to pomegranates. We have also made a fruit salad while researching where the fruit is grown and how it is grown. To consolidate our learning about plants, I have arranged a trip to Cuerden Valley to participate in a 'plants and habitats' programme. This trip will be on Thursday 27th April. A letter will be sent home nearer to the time to give further details. The cost of the full day trip will be £6.50. 

The children will also plant a seed this week and it will go home with them for them to care for at home.

Our Autumn trip to the pond and harvesting our vegetables in the garden !

As part of our local History topic, Year 2 visited Astley Hall, Chorley. We wanted to see how playgrounds  and houses have changed over the years. We looked at the kitchen garden and the old kitchen itself. Look out for the Gruffalo in the garden !
