Year 2 - Boater
Welcome to Boaters!
This year, your Year Two teachers are Mrs Bloomer and Mrs Cressey.
We have a lot of engaging activities planned for an exciting and enjoyable year.
We had lots of fun learning about castles today. We had the opportunity to design, build and attack our own castles using huge cardboard boxes and blocks. We even had a banquet and learned a Medieval dance and some good manners. We were very lucky to have such beautiful weather for our topic launch and spent a lot of time outside.

We had an amazing day yesterday when we investigated which material would make the best umbrella. Mrs Cressey found out that a paper umbrella is not much good because it was not waterproof or strong enough.
Sunday 1st November
We hope you have enjoyed half term and are ready for an incredible start to our new topics.
Tomorrow, come dressed ready for action when we will launch our new units. See you in the morning!
This half term we shared some wonderful books and stories as part of our recovery curriculum.
We explored friendship and kindness through the wonderful book The Robot and the Bluebird. We wrote notes to help the robot, we studied birds and how to care for them, we made bird feeders and we explored how joints let us move by making paper robots. The little birds have already eaten all the seeds in our birdfeeders!
Some of our lovely artwork from the book: observational drawings for the scrapheap and beautiful paintings of kingfishers and bluebirds to keep our robot company.
Another book we have shared is The Colour Monster, a lovely book about how different emotions make us feel. Sometimes it can be difficult to work out how you feel when you are emotional and sometimes your feelings can be all jumbled up. The Colour Monster helps us to unpick our emotions so we can deal with them better. We have been able to use the colours to talk about our own feelings and to track the feelings of characters in books we have read.
