Multi Skills Festival – Monday 5th March 2018

Today the whole Year 2 class travelled to Ormiston Bushfield Academy to take part in the annual Year 2 Multi Skills Festival. They all had a fantastic time taking part in a wide range of sporting activities. These activities included practicing our hockey and basketball shooting, throwing and catching skills, as well as an assortment of games. All of the children really enjoyed themselves and learnt lots of new skills.


African Workshop – Thursday 11th January 2018

The children enjoyed an African workshop today, where they got to learn about African culture, art, music and story telling. During the workshop children were invited to print their very own African art, using paint and fabric. Following this, they explored music through African drumming and finished the day off with a story brought to life through drama!

Spring Term PE – Wednesday 3rd January 2018

This term we will be learning how to play a simplified version of Netball, while acquiring the skills needed to play the full game as we get older. Additionally, we will be developing some Gymnastics skills. Our PE lessons will be remaining on the same days this term so PE kits are needed in school on a Tuesday and a Thursday. A good PE kit should include a Winyates PE t-shirt (available from total clothing for only £5) or a plain white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or tracksuit trousers and a black or blue jacket/jumper. Earrings should also be removed on PE days and long hair should be tied up. Finally trainers need to be in PE kits as we hope to get outside as the term goes on.

End of the Autumn Term – Wednesday 20th December 2017

We have had a fantastic first term in year 2!

Our highlights have been making Pizza at Pizza Express, meeting the author Michael De Sousa and writing super penguin poems. Your child will be bringing 2 books home to read over the Christmas break, I know it is a busy time of year but it is essential that your child continues to read regularly. Please ensure this happens to prevent your child’s progress from being affected. Have a lovely festive break and we look forward to an exciting 2018!

Pizza Express Trip – Wednesday 27th September 2017

Today Year 2 got to spend an enjoyable morning learning about good food, tasting fresh ingredients and making an authentic Italian pizza.
The pizzaiolo (pizza chef)  showed the children how to make a famous, Italian classic: the Margherita. Everyone got the chance to knead the dough, making it lovely and smooth, and create the perfect base. Then we discovered just how important the fresh ingredients were to the pizza’s flavour. The final touch was topping our creations with the famous passata (tomato) sauce, mozzarella and basil. 

Welcome to the Year 2! – Thursday 7th September 2017

This year Mrs Walton and Mrs Joubert (formerly Miss Steer) will be teaching the class, with support from their teaching assistants Mrs Colbert and Mrs Adams.
We are all looking forward to helping each child reach their full potential, whilst building positive relationships.
PE this year will take place on a Tuesday and a Thursday, and all children need to ensure that they have a PE kit and trainers in school to take part.
