Welcome toGhost Hill Infant & Nursery School

VIRTUAL SCHOOL TOUR

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Our 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! If you would like more information about our curriculum, please get in touch with a member of staff.

We love science!

 

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.

Children In Need

 

We all dressed up to support Pudsey Bear and to raise money for children who are not as lucky as we are. We posted lots of pennies in the boxes that our School Council representatives made. We raised a fantastic £282.04, so well done to everyone involved!

 

      

 

 

 

Maths Day

 

We held a Maths Day across the whole school to explore number, shapes and measures in a variety of ways and across all the curriculum subjects. One of our favourite activities was using spaghetti and marshmallows to make 3D shapes!

 

 

 

Red Nose Day

 

Daisy Class had a lovely Red Nose Day! After our work, we had a disco in our pyjamas, silly faces and joke telling at the end of the day! 

 

Poppy Class told jokes, gave out the best joke prize, had a disco, did some colouring and wordsearches, took a class photo in our pyjamas!

 

Well done to our joke winners Zoe and Milly (top row, far left). Zoe's joke was: Our cat swallowed a ball of wool. Congratulations, she'll soon be having mittens! Milly's joke was: What did one ocean say to the other? Nothing, they just waved! 😂

 

 

Tri Golf Day

 

Ghost Hill hosted a  morning of Tri Golf lead by the Schools Sports Partnership. All the pupils were engaged, and they tried all the different stations. There were four different activities where points could be scored at by hitting the cones with the ball. Lots of good shots on target and friendly competition.

 

Leo “I love this, I play this on the hills with my family”

Reggie “I want to get the 100 point cone”

Isla “I said to myself I don’t want to leave, this is really fun”

Fergus “I liked it when I got the ball in the hoop five times”
