YEAR 2 NEWS...
Monday 19th June - INSET Day. No pupils at school.
Wednesday 21st June - Year 2 assembly 9.15am
Tuesday 4th July - Exhibition Evening
In the Autumn term we learnt rugby skills in our Friday P.E. lessons. We learnt how to hold, throw and catch the rugby ball accurately, and the importance of our footwork in supporting this.
Our Learning this week...
We have been consolidating knowledge the past few weeks, supporting children to become even more confident with their mental math fluency.
Over the next few weeks we will be reading the Rainbow Fish and planning and writing our own adventure stories based on this beautiful book. To support our planning we will begin by creating storyboards and use our knowledge from our Seaside topic to support our ideas and thinking.
This half-term the children are investigating ‘plants’. This topic provides an opportunity for the children to develop their knowledge of the lifecycle of plants and get some hands on experience planting their own seeds and watching them grow.
This half-term our main topic focus is Seaside holidays. We will be comparing going to the Seaside at different periods of time and discussing similarities and differences. Our topic will culminate in a year group visit to the seaside at Southend.
Art and Design Technology
In Art the children are exploring texture and will be designing and creating their own seaside clay tiles and modrock star fish to link in with our current topic.
In DT we have just completed designing and making our own puppets.
We are currently learning about religious leaders; what they are called, where they work and what their role entails.
We will be learning to be photographers over the next few weeks and will be discussing what makes a good photo before going out into the wild to take our own!! Stay posted to see our fantastic images.
Please look at our information evening presentation for more information...

We were very lucky to participate in a fruit workshop. We had the opportunity to taste a range of different fruits, some we were already familiar with and others which were more exotic! We spoke about the importance of having 5 portions of fruit and veg a day and how each portion should be roughly the size of our palm. A pupil from each class got to ride on the 'smoothie bikes' and blitz fruit into a smoothie as they pedaled. Mrs Ingrey and Mrs Cooper also competed to see who could make the fastest smoothie!!
Year 2 trip to Southend - Wednesday 7th June
We had a successful day in Southend and were really proud of all of our pupils and felt they were great ambassadors for Cranborne School!
We got to look around the aquarium and see a variety of different fish and sea creatures and then got to meet and stroke Bob the common starfish!
In the afternoon we had a lovely time on the beach shell collecting, building sandcastles and eating choc ices!
