Welcome to Year 2 Parent's Information

A journey into Year 2...

 

Update: See our transition activities below!

 

Here in school, we are so excited to meet our new Year 2 children in September and begin your final year at Berry Brow School. This is a very important year as not only will you learn SO much, you will also become our super, sensible role models for the rest of our children in school. We are really looking forward to an exciting year of learning ahead with our otters and rabbits. 

 

It has been a different year for our lovely Year 1 children this year which means our transition will also look a little different! We won't be able to say hello in person just yet, as we all need to carry on staying home and keeping safe. We would still love to get to know you though over the coming weeks so keep checking the website for exciting updates! 

 

                                                             

 

Save the date! 

 

Come and join us for our 'New to Year 2' meeting via zoom on Tuesday 7th July at 5pm.

Welcome to Badgers with Miss Yule and Mrs Lennie!

As part of our new topic 'Then and Now' we have explored different events that have happened nationally and locally. We have spent time in the Birthday Garden and looked closely at the history of Berry Brow School. Researching beyond our lifetime Badgers have explored different food from World War II and how VE day was celebrated! Year 1 held a street party in the classroom and baked different food to compare then and now!

We have had a fantastic few weeks settling in to Year 1 and have eagerly started lots of new learning! Badgers have been working hard in morning lessons and we have been busy completing lots of different got to jobs! Let's keep up the good work yes

 

 

 

To introduce our new topic: Our School in our community, Year 1 went on an adventure walk around our local area in Berry Brow. We had lots of fun exploring and discussed the human and physical features within our area.

During Talk for writing we have been learning the story of The Three Little pigs and creating actions! Miss Yule is very impressed with how well Badgers have remembered the actions and we can’t wait to perform the story to grown-ups later in the term! 

We have enjoyed re-telling the Three Little Pigs story using puppets and during our afternoon time Badgers have built houses from Lego to test if the big bad wolf could blow them down!

Badgers have loved exploring new jobs and have begun to take responsibility for their own learning and job sheet; making sure each job is ticked off to earn their 5 dojo points!   

 

We have been learning more about our community and the people that live in it. This week we have explored different jobs within our community and talked about what we want to be when we grow up!
