Welcome to Year 2
We have indoor P.E on a Wednesday and outdoor P.E on a Friday. We like children to bring in their full kits at the beginning of a week in case there are any changes to the timetable.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school on the Wednesday of the following week.
As part of our work on food and farming we visit Normanby Hall. Here we explore the gardens and learn all about seeds and planting. We also get the opportunity to look at farming in the past and the types of machinery that would have been used. Of course the picnic lunch is always the most exciting bit!
As part of their music studies the Year 2 children form an Infant Choir. We learn songs and then try out our skills at the Scunthorpe Music Festival. This is a great opportunity to meet, listen to and compete against other schools in our local area.
Our resident artist is Kate from Gateway to Nature. Kate teaches us how to make our own Christmas wreaths from willow. This also gives us the opportunity to learn about the history of willow wreaths and other significant symbols of Christmas. For the last two years, parents and grandparents have been invited to join us in school and to support the children in making their wreaths.
