Making rice crispy buns

We have made some delicious buns today! We are going to use these steps to inspire our instruction writing next week.  We even got to taste them. They were yummy and went down well with tough critics. 

World Book Day!

On Thursday, we all dressed up as our favourite characters from different books. We had lots of fun discussing our books, reading our books and acting out different books in drama. 

Growth Mindset Week

As part of National Growth Mindset Week, Year 2 have been looking at how we can challenge ourselves and how our 'never give up' attitudes can help us succeed. 


We enjoyed our team building building games which not only helped with our social skills but also our communication skills!


We especially enjoyed building towers with no hands!!! 

Growth Mindset Challenges

Coming to an ocean near you......

They all floated! - Dahl class

We tested our boats today in water! We think Anka and Pana would be impressed with our designs! 


Polar Bear Fact Files

In English we have been learning how to write a non-chronological report using the key features. We used the iPads to research polar bears and then used this knowledge to create our own polar bear fact files. 

We made boats in DT to help Anka and Pana escape the melting ice!

Anka and Pana needed our help! The ice was melting around them and needed a boat! Today year 2 used our science knowledge on materials to build a boat.

Teaching our Arctic friends how to stay safe online

On Wednesday we received an email from our Arctic friends, Anka and Pana. Their Grandma had told them that they needed to be very careful online because not everyone is who they say they are. We made our own masks to show how easy it is to pretend to be someone you’re not using a fake identity.
