Welcome to Y2!
On this page we will record some of the exciting learning and investigating we do in Year 2, as the children continue to develop a wide breadth of skills and knowledge to take away with them when they leave us in the summer.
Our role in Y2 is to consolidate all the learning the children have been doing at Lydgate Infant School, as well as equip them for their next adventures as juniors. We strive to ensure children have a firm grasp of literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a love of learning. Through studying lots of different topics, our hope is that every child will discover what excites them and identify their own special skills and strengths.
We look forward to sharing our learning and exploring on this blog, and hope this will give you an insight into everything we get up to in Year 2.
Our latest Learning Overview
As you can see, we've been getting creative in our learning theme of 'Dragons' this week...
Over the past two weeks the Year Two children have been settling in to their new year group and making lots of new friends. In each class we have been working on our own Class Charters which follow our School Behaviour Code to: Be safe, Be kind and Be ready. The children have talked together about how we demonstrate each of these and have made posters showing examples of the children being kind, safe and ready.
We made Tudor houses as part of our 'Great Fire of London' topic this year!
On Wednesday 13th February, twelve children from Lydgate Infant School took part in a Change 4 Life dodgeball event at Hallam Primary School. These children had all been practising at Mr Wood's lunchtime dodgeball club and had the chance to showcase their throwing, catching and, of course, dodging skills. Our school played against teams from other schools in the local area and there was a great atmosphere of fun and friendly competition all afternoon.
