2 Pankhurst D&T Shelters

This week we have been designing and building outdoor shelters for the animals that live in our forest school.

We braved the challenging weather to use the techniques we had learnt in class to build structures that could survive in the wind.

We had a great time even if we did get wet and muddy. Hopefully our shelters will survive the storms that we are expecting over the weekend.

A Gnomeing Success

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the Year 2 children for their amazing performances this week.

You have all worked so hard to learn the songs, lines and actions. I’m sure your parents are so proud of you.

Thank you to the parents for supporting your children and providing the costumes.

Here are some pictures from today’s show.

Thanks Mr Bean and Mr Newby

Year 2 Science Days

This half term Year 2 will be investigating the uses of everyday materials.

To start our topic we have had 2 science days, where we have investigated the best material to make a waterproof coat and natural and man made materials.

All the children have worked hard and are looking forward to the other experiments and investigations we will carry out.

2 Pankhurst D&T Days

This week we have been making soup and bread in our D&T days.

First we decided what vegetables we were going to put into our soup and made a design for our bread.

In our next lesson we enjoyed making our soup and bread.

We waited till today to taste what we made and we all thought it was delicious.

Here are the recipes we used to make our food if you would like to have a go at home.



Year 2 Armstrong- World Book Day! (2021)

Hello everyone!

Today was World Book Day and I was certainly impressed with all of the fantastic characters that entered our classroom! Unfortunately, the class had a different teacher with them for the first half of the day. None other than Lucius Malfoy from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Luckily, I had some time with Year 2. I am sure the children are eager to tell you all about it.

In addition, we had a special visitor at Peel Hall. James Campbell is an author of some very humorous books. We listened to some of his funny and exciting stories. Also, he told us what it is like being a writer and all the different stages to getting a book onto shelves. In the afternoon, we created bookmarks to use for our own books and we had the opportunity to sit with the different adults in Year 2 and read a variety of books together.

It has been a very interesting and exciting day as you can see from the images. 🙂

2 Pankhurst World Book Day

Today we have had a lot of fun celebrating world book day in 2 Pankhurst.

In the morning we had an assembly with James Campbell the author of The Funny Life of Pets. We really enjoyed hearing him read us some of his stories and poems.

In the afternoon we created our own book marks and read some of our favourite stories.

Thank you to all the parents for the amazing costumes.

2 Pankhurst Science Days

This half term Year 2 will be investigating different materials. Yesterday, we identified the different materials that are used in our classroom. We found wood, metal, plastic, paper and glass.

During our lessons today, we learnt the process that is involved in recycling plastic bottles and what they can be turned into. This afternoon, we found natural and man made materials in the school orchard.

We are looking forward to doing other investigations on our materials topic during this half term.
