Year 2 Class Assembly

In our class assembly in Autumn Term 2  the children recited classical poetry! Poems included 'The Months' by Sara Coleridge. How many poems can you recite off by heart?

Year 2 Class Trip to the IMAX

In Autumn term 2, the children in Year 2 went on an exciting trip to the IMAX cinema in Waterloo. We had been learning about 'Continents and Oceans' in Geography and 'Habitats' in Science. The children watched a documentary called 'Under the Sea' about creatures who live under the sea. The documentary was in 3D! We got to keep the 3D glasses after the trip! Thank you IMAX staff!
