Safeguarding Day

On Wednesday 3rd October, we celebrated Safeguarding Day. Year 2 focussed on keeping clean and being hygienic. Mr Kuhan came to visit and shared some very interesting facts and advice on how to stay clean and healthy. We even investigated the best ways to wash our hands and learned how quickly and easily germs can spread. 

English

This half term we will be reading a book called The Man On The Moon. We will be learning to sequence a story and use exciting adjectives in our own story writing.

On Friday 21st September, we came into school to find that aliens had invaded and had a party in our classroom! They had left our room extremely messy and poor 2S had to tidy up. We created some wanted posters to help Bob find and catch the aliens and take them back to the moon.

 On Tuesday 25th September, Bob (the man on the moon) came to visit year 2! We got to ask him lots of questions about his life and his job and he even took us through some very exciting astronaut training! Look below for some of the pictures from our space morning.
