Welcome to Year 2
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Year 2 class page.
Keep looking on here to see what we are learning and all the fun that we get up to in Miss Tindall’s and Mrs Blencowe’s class.
Spring Term 2016
Our topic this term is ‘Africa’. We have been learning about how life can be different in rural and urban areas in Africa but also looking at the similarities and differences in a child’s daily routine compared to ours. We loved learning about the wildlife in Africa too! Mrs Rogers was very kind and offered to visit Year 2 again to talk about her time in Africa.
We loved looking at all the amazing objects and learnt some more facts. Did you know that there are only 34 giraffes left in the Congo? Mrs Rogers brought in some African fabric called Ki-koy. We all had a go at trying it on, which was very fun! Have a look at our gallery of us looking absolutely fabulous!
We have been playing lots of different rhythms and have been learnt about dynamics. We love playing the drums really loudly!
We are having such a crazy time in at the moment as we have so much to do. We are all super excited about the Christmas holidays but we need to get through our Nativity play first.
We loved taking part in the Nativity, learning lots of words and new songs. Miss Tindall and Mrs Blencowe were extremely proud of us and we hope all of our families loved watching it too.
What a day…….Christmas Jumper day and our Christmas Party! We had a tip top gorgeous time and we looked absolutely smashing!!
Autumn Term 2016
Our topic this term is ‘Amazing Me’. We have been learning about lots of things… from body parts, to the skeleton, to our senses and how to keep healthy.
We had a great afternoon looking at the insides of different fruit and veg and noticed that only the fruits have seeds. We used oil pastels to draw a selection of fruit and veggies.
We had lots of fun on Friday making our scrummy fruit salads. We loved creating our own healthy puds and it made our classrooms smell lush!!!! Have a look at our juicy fruit salads – they were delicious!!!
We are super lucky in Year 2 as the lovely Toby from Sherborne Tennis Club has been teaching us some really good skills. We have learnt that you can hit the ball two ways, either using forehand or backhand. We have been doing lots of activities to help us recognise this so that we will be amazing when we come to playing a game! Miss Tindall and Mrs Blencowe have been really impressed so far and think we have a good chance getting into Wimbledon 2016! Watch out Andy Murray……Year 2 are coming!!
In P.E, we have been learning a little bit of yoga, to help calm ourselves and to relax. We learnt a few different positions, here are a few……….

It looks like Year 2 isn’t as bad after all! Lots of smiles all round during choosing time.
