All of our children have returned to school with big smiling faces, safe and well and ready to learn.

Miss Howard, Miss B, Mrs Hartley and Mrs Kersey are always happy to help if you have any queries. Alternatively, you can contact us at year2@harrowlodgeprimary.com

This year, the children will start off by studying our ‘Movers and Shakers’ topic where they will learn about many significant historical figures and what they did to change history. They will then move on to the topic ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures.’ Here, through Roald Dahl’s wonderful story of ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine,’ children will take part in the messiest, yuckiest science experiments and have the most amazing fun along the way! In the spring, the children will learn all about our most famous Kings and Queens through our Magnificent Monarchs topic (let’s hope they keep their head!) and will then develop their green fingers in our Scented Garden topic. There will be creepy crawlies everywhere in the summer term when the children find out about minibeasts in our Wiggle and Crawl topic and they will end the year exploring beaches and coastlines in the geography-rich Coastline topic.

It is certainly going to be a busy year… keep safe, stay well and remember to keep washing those hands!

This half term our topic is The Scented Garden.

Tip-toe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs.

Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watching them grow beneath the sunset.

Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful; there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do some astonishing things – be careful what you touch!

Use the marvellous properties of plants, flowers and herbs to make an exceptional gift for somebody special. Everything is coming up roses! Why not grow your own?!

 

 

Please see below for home learning ideas. We would like you to choose one activity from the sheet and upload your work onto Seesaw.

Year 2 enjoyed getting mucky and messy to kick start their Muck, Mess and Mixtures topic this half term! They got mucky and messy with paint, wax, cornflour, jelly, shaving foam and body lotion. We thought about our senses and used different vocabulary to describe how the different materials felt, smelt and what they looked like. For example, sticky, runny, wet, cold, stiff, squishy etc. Well done Year 2!
The children did a FAB job creating marbling prints this week! They thought carefully about how to drip their marbling inks onto the surface of the water to create different patterns and loved observing how the marbling inks transferred onto paper when it was laid onto the surface of the water. You did great Year 2!
