Year 2 - Spring 2

This half term saw our annual book week arrive again! 

Year 2 had such an exciting week! We dressed up as our favourite book characters, made our own books and even had a go at making our own paper!


In R.E. we have been learning all about the Easter story and Jesus' crucifixion. We have made our own stick puppets to retell the story.

The Tear Thief

Our Design and Technology project this half term was making hand puppets! This project took lots of time as we had to design our puppets, make our templates, cut out our felt, sew it all together and then decorate it!

We created a hand puppet of our favourite book characters! 

We had so many different characters! Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Gingerbread Man, Aliens Love Underpants, Harry Potter, Willy Wonka and many more! Don't they look amazing?

In English this half term, we have been reading the story of The Tear Thief. It is a story about a small, invisible girl who goes around stealing the tears of children. She uses them to help the moon shine bright! We did lots of role play of the story and wrote our own diary entries from the perspective of the tear thief!

In Science we have been learning all about plants!

We predicted which plants would grow - a plant with sunlight and water, a plant with water but no sunlight, a plant with sunlight but no water or a plant with no water or sunlight!

We planted our own seeds - sunflowers and tomato plants! We will be carefully looking after them to help them grow!
