We are still working hard to get Fred and Ted back. We have designed hats, learnt to tie knots, designed and made boats and this week we are planning to tease the pirates taste buds with some c-c-c-c-coooking!!
What will they like??
'TOYNAPPED' BY PIRATES!!!
OHHHHH noooooo Fred the Frog and Ted have been 'toynapped' by pirates!! They tied them up, took them away and then they sent a note demanding that we made hats, built a rescue boat and made them some food. What strange things to ask us for but we want them back so we will do what they ask us to do.
What is the best way to learn how to draw the UK and where the capital cities are?
Spend a Friday afternoon in the sun with 2G and a tub of chalks.
Learning is great!!
Finally it is here!!
The 'Pirates and Islands' topic has finally arrived in year 2.

Easter came to year 2-13.3.18
After a lovely spring walk to Thorpe Acre Church the children worked in 5 different groups to learn more about Easter for Christian people. They had a great afternoon of fun and crafts. They even received a book gift from the church to take home with a mini Easter egg.
Thank you to all of the parents that helped. We couldn't do it without your support.
Castles and Dragons
The wow factor.
We had to have a battle and see how hard it was to defend ourselves.
We then made a wall to protect ourselves from all of the balls.
Who won I hear you ask??
Well, 2G made the tallest and strongest castle wall but then fled leaving their castle unprotected. However, 2H protected their castle and it stayed standing for longer. What do you think??
They had great fun and this started their drive to find out more about castles.
Spring 2 Castles and Dragons
OOOOhhhh exciting times ahead with a battle, castle making, dragon making and a trip to Warwick Castle.
Watch this space!!

Happy New Year 2G
Hope you had a super Christmas and are ready for a new term.
I'm going to give you a clue about our topic this half term. Well, I wonder how you 'survived' Christmas!!
Yesssss, you got it. Survival is the new topic this half term.
How do we and animals survive?
We will be looking at the continents, where they are, the temperature, where things like to live and what might happen if they accidently lived somewhere else, food chains and bullying. It's going to be interesting!!!

Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow!!!!
I am so proud, shocked and amazed at the generosity of the class and parents in 2G. The photos show all of the things that we have collected for homeless through our reverse advent calendar. We also had some donations from other children from other classes.
Josh's Mum has helped find a few contacts and we are going to deliver everything on Friday. There is a lady called Corrie who hands out snacks directly to the homeless on the streets in Leicester city centre, there is another contact who will cook all of the food and provide a hot meal for the homeless on the streets, there are 2 homeless shelters where we can deliver the toiletries.
I truly feel overwhelmed and hopefully you feel so proud of yourselves. A little will go a long way this Christmas time!!
If you have any last minute donations please bring them tomorrow (21st).
Thank you soooooooo much
Ohhhhhh no Mrs Gower has been watching Kirstie Allsopp's Christmas ideas!! She now has us all creating our own wrapping paper.
We looovvveedd it!!
Snow, snow and more snow!!!
When it snows there is only one thing for it and that is to have a snowman competition.
We were so proud of our finished snowmen.
After a lovely, fresh, winter walk we finally arrived at All Saints Church.
There were 6 stations and we learnt more about how Christian people celebrate Christmas. We all had a great time and enjoyed all of the crafts at each station.
We are all looking forward to the Easter experience.
Shelter building challenge!!
What an amazing and exciting afternoon we had!! We were buzzing and bouncing all the way over the field to the woodland area of the school grounds. Mr Taylor came in to help us and brought with him some tarpaulin, string and tools to build our shelters. We watched how to do it first and got some ideas and then it was our turn. The challenge was to make a shelter which gave us shade, kept us warm and kept us dry. We split into 2 teams (Team GS and Team T). How exciting it was!!
Team GS successfully made a shelter which gave shade and it was big enough to keep the whole class dry (when Mr Taylor didn't spray it underneath!!). We are not sure how warm we would be after a while though .
Team T had a great idea and successfully made a shelter but the wind grabbed hold of it and the bucket was not heavy enough to keep it down. They sat some children on the edge to hold it down but wow they all got wet when they let go of the edge .
We had sooooooo much fun!!
Shelter building fun in year 2!!
The challenge was to build a shelter for one of the three little pigs and keep him dry, protected from the sun and warm. We had a great afternoon and we had some superb ideas. We can't wait to build some children sized shelters.
Welcome back to school 2G
Another month on and a new school year begins. It's a little bit different for 2G as we are all still together yay!!! I'm looking forward to an exciting year together.
We are beginning the year with our 'Shelters' topic. We will look at the three little pigs story and make our own versions, build shelters for the pigs and even build shelters for ourselves later in the half term. Watch this space for pictures the of all of the fun we have and of our learning!!!
