Welcome to Year 2!

Magical Mapping- What does our local area look like?

In our Geography lesson we brought our mapping skills to life!

Using our original sketch maps of our local area, we created mapping masterpieces.

Have a look at the photos below!

All about MEXICO!

This half-term we are learning all about Mexico!

We are linking our learning in art with our geography knowledge.

We used our art skills to create our own versions of Mexico!

Wild Science

Today we had the chance to see and stroke lots of different animals.

We talked about their different habitats and how they are adapted to their habitats.

We loved the snake the most but were a bit scared! Have a look at our photos below.

Castles Artwork

 This half-term we have been linking our new knowledge about castles to our work in art. We really enjoyed recreating Paul Klee's famous painting called Castle and Sun. We used 2D shapes to create the features of castles and watercolours to bring our very own paintings to life

Living things and their habitats!

Today in Science we investigated whether things are alive, dead, or have never been alive. We went into the playground and collected objects and then organised them as a class. Take a look at our photos below. 

Christmas 2017: Lights, Camel, Action!

Well done to our wonderful Year 2 children for their fabulous singing, dancing and acting for our nativity play this year! You are superstars!

Our One Community Advent Homework 2017

Judaism Week 2017: Our Trip to Muswell Hill Synagogue

Today we went on a local trip to Muswell Hill Synagogue. Anthony showed us lots of signs and symbols used that are important in Judaism and helped us to spot them in the synagogue. We listened very carefully and used our knowledge about Shabbat to help answer questions. Have a look at our photos below!

Our School Trip!

Year 2 went on a very exciting trip to the Royal Festival Hall.

We watched The London Philharmonic Orchestra: FUNharmonics Family Concert.

First we had lunch and then we watched The Gruffalo’s Child on the big screen, with live music performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra! It was amazing!

 

Art!

Last half term we became photographers!

We have been designing our own photographic paintings and using technology to bring them to life! Next week we will use our painting skills to see if we can turn our photographs into paintings.

 

Under the Sea!

Today we were very lucky to have an Under the Sea drama workshop!

We worked with our friends to create freeze frames of things we found under the ocean and went on a deep sea dive!

 

During our first week back we used our art skills to draw our own faces as modern art.

We used mirrors to check what we looked like and sketched our designs before using oil pastels to bring them to life!
