Ghost Hill Infant & Nursery School

Welcome toGhost Hill Infant & Nursery School

Year 2

Poppy Class and Daisy Class

 

The year 2 classes are called Poppy and Daisy.

 

Our topics this year are:  ‘Our History Heroes’, ‘All Around the World’ and ‘Our Planet, Our Future’. We have lots of fun activities included throughout all of our topics. 

 

In Year 2 at Ghost Hill you will have the opportunity to go on a residential trip to Holt Hall at Christmas time and a summer trip to Easton College Farm. You will also create some Celtic jewellery; learn about catapults (!) and the Great Fire of London 1666.

 

We explore the famous nurse Edith Cavell and the 7 continents of the world. In the summer, we spend lots of time thinking about our environment and the future of our planet.

 

We will also learn lots of songs, read many many books, have dress up days and even go on an aeroplane!

Ninja Training

 

The hook for our Talk for Writing text was to meet and train with a Ninja!

 

We also watched 'Make a Man Out of You' from Mulan:

 

"We must be swift as the coursing river,

With all the force of a great typhoon,
With all the strength of a raging fire,
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon."

Poppy and Daisy Class discovered...
 

  • "the wax from the candle is waterproof"
  • "the candle felt like wellies and wellies are waterproof"
  • "it felt like a raincoat too"
  • "if you put too much watery paint on it then the paper soaks it up and makes it soggy"
  • "the water went over the wax and didn't stick to it"
  • "you need to push down hard and put lots of wax on then it works better"
  • "the white wax crayons worked better than the wax candle"

 

We made 'telephones' to explore how sound travels. We also investigated micro-habitats in our outdoor area, looked at what lives there, and why it is a good habitat for that animal/plant. Each group made their own micro-habitat using natural objects.

Year 2 Trips 

 

Holt Hall Residential

 

In the second half of the Autumn term, the children in year 2 have the wonderful opportunity to stay at Holt Hall for two nights. This is an experience thoroughly enjoyed by both children and staff who attend.

 

All the activities undertaken at Holt Hall are themed around Christmas and are very creative and imaginative. The children enjoy the chance to stay with their friends and become much more independent from this experience.
