Benjamin Class 

Teacher - Miss Shaw 

We are the Year 2 children at Scissett CE Academy and we are the oldest children in Key Stage 1. In Year 2, we are working hard to become more independent in our learning and build our resilience and confidence but we always make sure we have fun to make our learning experiences memorable and enjoyable.

Our class teacher is Miss Shaw and she loves to keep us engaged and loves helping us learn. Mrs Martin, Mrs McGregor and Miss Stone work in our classroom during the week and they are amazing at helping us to stay organised and develop our creativity!

We will be updating our blog frequently to share our learning with you at home – there’s lots of exciting things to come in Year 2!

Taking a good Photo!

In computing, Year 2 have been learning all about photography. They have learnt all the rules of how to take a good picture- they even made their own lightboxes and experimented with light! 



Paired Reading

Year 2 have done some wonderful paired reading this morning. It was so lovely to watch the children supporting one another with their reading, helping them to blend and segment words. A wonderful end to antibullying week. Well done Year 2, one very proud Miss Shaw😀

We are Different, We are the Same

This Morning in Year 2 we have read the story Elmer. We have discussed how we are all different and how that is what makes us so special. The children worked so hard as a team to make Elmer oil pastel drawings. I am so proud of their team work, they have done an amazing job . Well done Year 2 an amazing end to an amazing half term. Miss Shaw is one very proud teacher! 


This week in Year 2 we are looking at the Far East in Everything is different, Everything is the same week. We have done some lovely Chinese letter writing in English. The children had a go at writing their first and last name. Miss Shaw is very impressed with their concentration with some of the trickier letters. Well done Year 2! 


Year 2 Art

This half term Year 2 have been looking at exploring and drawing with Mrs Whittle in Art. We have loved getting closer to nature and have used it as our inspiration. The class have worked hard to develop their observational drawing skills and have made wax resistant leaf art using wax crayons and watercolours.
