Welcome to Year 2

In Year 2 we have been exploring the topic Frozen Planet. We have enjoyed stories such as Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. We have found out facts about penguins and have even learnt how to paint a penguin. We are looking forward to our visit to The Wild Place Project to explore different habitats.
In Year 2 we have been learning about hedgehogs and how they hibernate for the winter. Mrs West is a helper at the hedgehog rescue service so she came in and showed us a really cute baby hedgehog called Hetty. She told us that Hetty is a rescue hedgehog who was found near her home. Hetty was very weak and needed lots of care. She sleeps in a box with a blanket and hot water bottle to keep her warm. We made our own hedgehog house which we have sited in a secret location around school. We hope a prickly visitor will come and hibernate in our hedgehog house soon!
On Monday 11th November we visited the Cartshed at Almeley. Although it was cold day, we managed to stay mostly dry by as we were under the trees. We had a wonderful time learning survival skills, building dens and trying a variety of woodland crafts. We even got to make our own pizzas then cooked them on a fire.
Year 2 have all settled in well and are quickly learning the rules and routines of the classroom. Year 2 love listening to stories and have completed a fantastic retelling of the story of Mr Magee and the camping spree. Every day they have also enjoyed listening to The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. They are looking forward to building dens in the woods next week.
