Year 2 Class Update Term 2


In Year 2 our project was learning about a significant person, we learned about Rosa Parks and her journey, the changes that she made as a result of her human rights. We celebrated the achievements of black history by learning about artist and musicians from around the world.…

Our final outcome was a diary entry in the life of Rosa Parks and a piece of art on the style of Louis Mailou Jones.

The children particularly enjoyed tasting different fruits and making their own instruments celebrating black history , they learned about black music , artist


In writing we write an alternative ending the story of the Tin forest writing by Helen Ward.

We worked hard to improve our skills of past tense and use of conjunctions.


Our focus in reading last term was retrieval and inference.

We worked really hard to get better at using our knowledge of what we have to read to inform our ideas and opinions on the questions we were answering.


In Science we have been learning about Humans and animals including humans

One of our challenges was to explore the similarities and difference between what humans need and what animals need to stay alive

We are really proud of our art as we were able to develop our understanding of shape and pattern. We are also really proud of our diary entry as we loved learning about Rosa Parks. Our favourite area of learning was our Christmas play as we were able to perform to our families.
