Y2 – Take a look at us
This term Year 2 have been enjoying learning all about China. It was great to see so many family members at our end of term China Fayre and the children loved being able to share all of their hard work with you!
We started the term with an exciting ‘hook’ day during which the children learnt how to do calligraphy painting and Tai Chi, took part in chopstick challenges and tasted a range of sweet and savoury Chinese food! Since then we have written some fantastic stories about the Chinese Zodiac and some lovely New Year poems. The children have learnt about Shanghai and Xing Ping Island and have recently written some factual reports about the Giant Panda. For art we have made paper lanterns and painted Chinese designs on paper plates.
The children have worked so hard this term and we are very proud of the progress they are making!
Year 2 took part in a China day where they sang the Chinese National Anthem, learnt how to use chopsticks, tasted lots of Chinese cuisine and calmed down with a bit of relaxing Tai Chi. As you can imagine they had lots of fun and there were noodles everywhere!
These photographs show a selection of displays from the children in Year 2. You will notice that some of the displays seem unfinished. This is because they are working or learning displays which grow as the term/topic progresses. So, if the photo was taken at the beginning of a term or topic then the display with have just a bit on it and if the photo was taken at the end of the term or topic it will be full. It is great to see our work progress as the term/topic reaches its conclusion.
