Year 2 is a very exciting year for all of us in Class Diamond. We have lots to learn and many exciting activities to enjoy. We will try to post some of these as the year goes on. You are always welcome to pop in and have a chat with Mrs Dimmick, Mrs Shephard, Mrs Stewart or Mrs Wilkinson if you have any concerns or require information.
Just a few reminders
We have PE every Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure you have your named PE kit with you.
Phonics homework comes home on a Thursday and needs to be returned to school the following Tuesday. Spellings to learn are sent home with the phonics homework and we check the spellings with the children on Thursdays.
Books can be changed whenever the children need to.
Friday 22nd June - Pirate Jumping Off day!
We had a brilliant day celebrating the end of our Pirate theme. We came to school dressed as pirates and then had a treasure hunt on the field. We made ancient treasure maps and used junk modelling to construct ships, treasure chests and other pirate things! We finished with an outdoor assembly and we all received our treasure!
Wednesday 20th June - Oh Arrrrgh!! - Pirate Sports Day
We enjoyed a fantastic Pirate Sports Day in the sunshine. We took part in events like carrying grog, firing canons and walking the plank! Well done me hearties!! A big thank you to everyone who came to support us.
Art Day - Thursday 7th June
We spent a fantastic day on an art project based on the theme of self-portraits. We used different paint techniques and we used different media to create versions of our own profile.
Week beginning 21st May - Science Week!
We had an exciting week investigating materials. We sorted materials and thought about what they are used for. We planned and carried out our own investigation to see which material was the most waterproof. We recorded our results and discussed our findings.
Friday 18th May
We had lots of swashbuckling fun making tie-dye bandanas. We learnt lots of different dyeing techniques like folding, crumpling and twisting. We used three different coloured dyes and we were so excited to see the finished results!
