Year 2 Summer Term
Y2 ended the Spring Term with a trip to the Potteries Museum, where they made clay portraits. The class sketched the portrait of a partner and enjoyed using the clay.
Most of the children also took part in the Dance Extravaganza at the Victoria Hall on 21st March. The children danced to music from the 60s. They all performed really well and we were very proud of them!
This term our topics are ‘How has Saturday night entertainment changed?’ and ‘Where will our feet take us?’ We are looking forward to learning about we enjoy doing on a Saturday night is different to what our parents and grandparents did in the past.
This term’s English will be traditional stories and the children will write their own versions. I am looking forward to reading them because all the children have progressed well in their writing. Well done!
In our Science, we are learning about Animals including humans. The children will learn about an animal’s basic needs and research different classifications.
