Nurturing Foundations, Flourishing With God


Year 2


Last week Yellow class started off the week with a trip to Leeds Castle, the children loved exploring the castle, playing in the giant playpark and recreating the story of the Swan Princess. Yellow class want to say a big thank you to Leeds Castle for having us, we thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Last term, Yellow class ventured down to the Abbey and learnt all about how the Sisters live. We counted sheep, learnt about how the Abbey started and how the Sisters live. We are so thankful to the Sisters for letting us into their home and showing us around.

At the end of last term, Yellow class created their own shelters in D&T and maps in geography for their BeeBot. On the last day of term we got to assemble everything and test out our Beebots and navigate them through our maps.

'This term Yellow class have been learning about shapes and money in maths and have started using rekenreks in our maths mastery sessions which the children have loved. We have also started Little Red Riding Hood in English and the children have been making freeze frames for the different parts of the book!'

In term 2, yellow class loved learning all things pirate. The children got to dress up in their pirate outfits and find out how to speak like one 'arrr me hearty'. We started our maths topic on shapes and learnt about vertices by using cocktail sticks and marshmallows to create the 3D shape.

In term 1, yellow class thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Muck, Mess and Mixtures. They made disgusting sandwiches, found out which material would be the best substitute for glue and learnt all about mixing colours and an artist who uses food to create artwork!
