What’s going on in Year 2…
January 2021 – March 2021
Remote Learning – our fantastic children in Year 2 have blown our socks off with the work they have done while in Lockdown.
Celebrating Reading 1st March- 5th March (featuring World Book Day 2021)
8th- 15th March British Science Week ‘Innovating for the future’
Nothing could stop us from making sure we performed for our Monksdown families..even if it was a bit different this year.
Year 2 investigated blending with different mediums like chalk, pastels and water-colours.
It looks like Year 2 were most definitely on the good list this year…
The Land of Make Believe
Year 2 read the story ‘The Jolly Postman’ and it took us on a very unexpected road to visits from wolves delivering letters, creating maps to tell stories, innovating with post-its, using technology to help us write and becoming experts in all things fairy tale! If you think we are exhausted…you’d be wrong. Year 2 are just getting started! Watch the video to see some of our work…
