We are the Year 2 children at Scissett CE Academy and the oldest children in Key Stage 1. In Year 2, we are working hard to become more independent in our learning and build our confidence but we always make sure we have fun to make our learning experiences memorable and enjoyable.
Our class teacher is Mrs Buckley and she loves to keep us active. Mrs Brook works in our classroom everyday and she is 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!
This term in science, Columbus class have been finding all about everyday materials and their uses. The children have been identifying materials and their properties, discussing natural and man-made objects and learning about the process of making materials. This led us to our investigation- what is the best material to make un umbrella? The children worked together testing materials to see if they were strong, light and waterproof by spraying them with water. We had fun and tried our best not to get wet!
Year 2 have been really active with their learning in both English and Maths. We have done lots of work on Place Value, using concrete manipulative equipment and we have been sequencing the story of The Bog Baby.
Everyone has settled in to school life in Class Columbus really well and made a fantastic start to Year 2.

Columbus class have had a very special visitor! In year 2, our topic this term is knights and castles. We have learnt all about medieval life and what knights got up to over 1000 years ago. We also had the opportunity to hold swords, medieval toys and some extremely heavy armor!
