Year 2 – Beech


Timetable  1

Welcome to Year 2


This half term, we have been learning about Judaism in RE. We made Hamantaschen, which is a Jewish desert, we made Purim masks and crowns and we even had our own Jewish wedding! If you follow the school's Twitter page @foresthallps you will see all of the photographs. 

The Great Fire of London

Last half term, we were learning all about The Great Fire of London. We were lucky enough to have a visit from some firemen from the Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service. We learnt lots! We all sprayed the hose and some of us even got dress up! The firemen told us how important it is to be safe around fire and they explained why they wear their equipment and what their tools are used for. Some of us were so inspired, we have decided we want to be fire fighters when we grow up!

PE in Year 2


We have really been enjoying having a coach in for gymnastics this half term. We have made so much progress already and we are trying out so many new balances and routines. Have a look at the photographs from some of our lessons.

The Papaya that Spoke


In Year 2, we have been doing lots of work about the story The Papaya that Spoke.


We have drawn our own papayas, we have learned the story (with some brilliant actions!) and we have even tasted some papaya! None of us had ever tried papaya before, but we were all very brave and we gave it a go - some of us thought it was horrible, but some of us absolutely loved it! Then, we changed some parts of the story and wrote our own. 


Take a look at the photographs of what we have been getting up to in Year 2.
