MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL FROM YEAR 2!
Thank you all for your support this year. We hope you have a great Christmas and here's to a happy, healthy 2021.
After a very busy, fun packed few weeks, we have made it to the end of term!
ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„We have had a brilliant time working our way through the 12 Days of Christmas hopefully creating some magical memories for your children.
We have learnt all about how Christmas is celebrated around the world, competed in our very own Y2 Wales Primary Christmas quizzes, created many beautiful Christmas crafts, watched the fantastic Jack and the Beanstalk panto, enjoyed watching ‘The Grinch’ with our chocolate milk and kinder surprizes, along with many more special festive actives. Take a look at the gallery for more photos of our Christmas celebrations. ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„ðŸŽ„
We have recorded our class Christmas song for you to enjoy at home as we have sadly been unable to do our Christmas concert this year.
Please find the video attached below. We hope it puts a smile on your face!
Unfortunately Eliza was absent from school on the day we recorded our class song but lucky for us she has recorded her own amazing version and sent it in for us to share, well done Eliza we love it!

COVID-19 didn't stop Santa catching up with Wales Primary School. Santa spoke to all our children via Zoom straight from the North Pole. Thankfully all of Year 2 had made it on to the nice list and we even got to preform our class song to the big man himself!
There were Santa's everywhere at our Santa dash today ðŸŽ…ðŸ¼. We had brilliant fun whilst raising money for a worthy cause, thank you for your kind donations to Rotherham Hospice and thank Mrs Harley for organising it.
A big well done to our two children of the term. We are so proud of you both and are very lucky that you're in our class. Enjoy your celebratory McDonalds!
Autumn 2 - 'Bright Lights Big City'
This half term we have had a lot of fun with our learning we began our topic with bonfire night; watching videos, recalling memories and experiences to create some amazing poems. We then studied the geographical location of London whilst looking at a map of the United Kingdom and researching some London landmarks. We then compared the capital cities landmarks to those closer to home. We also looked at the history of London in particular the Great Fire of London; which we recreated on our school field whilst singing ‘London’s burning’ wow what a fantastic experience!
Take a look in our gallery for more photos.
Year 2 remembered the soldiers who have fought for our country's freedom. We created some poppies and a class wreath to display in our class window.
Please see our newsletter for this half term under 'files to download' where you can find about our new topic 'Bright lights, big city!'.
We hope you are all enjoying the (wet) October half term. Please see the letter in the 'files to download' regarding the phonics screen that will take place in our class next half term. There is also a document with some real and nonsense words to look at which is exactly the same as they are set out in the screen.
Autumn 1 - 'The Arctic'
Well done to all the children in Year 2 for a fantastic first half term back at Wales Primary School, you have worked so hard in class and I am sure you are ready for a well-deserved rest! Here is a small collection of some of the work we have completed around our topic; including designing and making a home sutible for an inuit, creating our own inukshuk art and our focus on the effects of global warming and how plastics affect the seas and animals.
Take a look at some more photos of the fabulous work we completed in our gallery below.
Please see our Autumn 1 newsletter below in the 'Files to download' section.
Hello Year 2's,
We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are really looking forward to seeing you all back in school on Wednesday. We have some fantastic topics planned for this year and can't wait to share them with you!
Our start time is 8:45am and we finish at 3pm. This is through the entrance near the bus stop.
Please can you bring in the home learning we set at the beginning of the summer for us to display some in the classroom?
Just a reminder the only things you can bring into school is your water bottle (filled with water) and a lunch box. Fruit snacks will still be provided by school for playtime.
Our PE days and Tuesdays and Thursdays so they are the days you need to come in your kit.
