A ‘Souper’ Week Of Learning! January 2019
What a great shopping expedition to Brierley Hill Asda to buy ingredients for our vegetable soup. Year 2 loved choosing and weighing the produce. What a wonderful experience and such respectful and sociable members of our community- well done mini-shoppers!
As mini master chiefs Year 2 have created a healthy vegetable soup with the ingredients they voted for and purchased from Asda! All of this week we have focused on different aspects involved in making the soup from creating tally and bar charts in mathematics, writing instructions in English and looking at healthy eating in science. Doesn’t our soup look amazing?
Calendar Creation - December 2018
As artists we investigated the process of dying fabric through tie-dye. We explored different methods of tie-dye which created various effects. Year 2 haves used this fabric as a background for their Christmas calendars. Look how beautiful they are!
Victorian Christmas Enterprise - December 2018
As designers we looked at sweets that were invented/popular in the Victorian times and created sweet jars to sell. We worked out the total cost of making our product and the profit we would make per item in mathematics. To add decoration, in Art we were inspired by the work produced by William Morris and created Christmas natural designs. Year 2 then printed there favourite design on calico to decorate the top of the jar. As you can see what a wonderfully made final product!
Blakesely Hall Visit December 2018
As historians year 2 visited Blakesley Hall and journeyed back in time to 1666!

Year 2 even re-enacted the events of that fateful night when the fire started using Samuel Pepys’ Diary. What a fantastic start to our History topic!
