Year Two's Delicious Bakes
What a busy week we've had in year two! We have worked hard tasting, baking, researching and advertising our delicious apple biscuits ready for the market. Well done, everybody!
Being the best we can be ....
In our P4C lessons, we have been discussing our value for this half term. We read the book 'How to Catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers and it really got us thinking about giving up. We had lots of ideas to share about why we give up sometimes and why it is important to keep trying also!
Parent's Expectation Meeting

We are Curators ...
We received an exciting letter yesterday from Megan who works at the Sheffield Industrial Museums.
She has asked us to become museum curators and look after her artefacts! We couldn't wait to start exploring them and set to work straight away. We wore special gloves while we were investigating the artefacts so that they would stay clean.
We learned that all of the artefacts gave us clues about life in the Sheffield steelworks. Some were very unusual and we have lots of questions that we want to explore further!
Our first week in Y2 ...
We have had a brilliant first week in year two. The children have all worked really hard and have enjoyed getting involved with lots of different activities. We have been counting, reading, skipping, hopping and asking philosophical questions to name just a few!
Take a look at some of our English and Maths learning ...
Our first week in Y2 Palm.
Marbles, Class Dojo and House Points!
The children can earn dojo points as well as marbles while they are in school. House points are awarded for the very best examples of learning and behaviour!
We award dojo points for individual achievements so don't forget to keep track of your points on the app at home.
We earn marbles for whole class achievements. This half term, our targets are:
-being the best that we can be
-to be ready for learning
Our aim is to earn 30 marbles by the 19th of October so that we can enjoy our reward - a movie afternoon!
How did it all begin?
Our topic question this term is: how did it all begin?
We will be using different sources of evidence to find out about life in the past in Sheffield. We will use images, interviews and artefacts to discover what life was like for Sheffield steelworkers and how their jobs changed over time.
We will become curators and present our learning in a Sheffield museum at the end of this half term!
