Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2! Our teachers are Mrs French, Miss Webb and Miss Barnett. We are also supported by Mrs Robson, Mrs Young and Mrs Casson. We are a lively and enthusiastic year group who enjoy learning about a range of topics throughout the year and visiting places in our local area. Please read the articles below to find out what we have been learning about recently. You can also find links to other exciting websites at the bottom of our page.

30th June 2015. This week we took a trip to Barleylands to learn about where our food comes from. We looked at the crops growing in the field, fed the animals on the farm and even got to make our own pizzas!

This week we made fruit salads! Fortunately, our parents came in to help us chop the different fruits.

In Year 2 we have been learning about how to look after ourselves. Last week we received an extraordinary visitor from the past, Florence Nightingale! She told all about how she helped the soldiers in the Crimean war and how she changed nursing and hospitals. Additionally, she also showed us how to apply bandages. We had a brilliant day!

In Year 2 some of our parents came in to help us make our healthy wraps. We added cheese, ham, cucumber, tomato, sweetcorn and lettuce. We cut up the vegetables and chose mayonnaise, salad cream, butter or tomato sauce to spread on the tortilla. They were delicious!
