What are we getting up to in YEAR 2?

Year 2 Trip to Gooselands Farm, Yalding. For our Geography learning we visited a local farm to find out how fruit is grown and what is involved in the process. We had a great time!

Computing and Safer Internet Day - In Year 2 we have been busy in the Computer Room - we have been learning how to code, how to create spreadsheets, how to keep safe on a computer and what to do if we are not feeling safe. We have also been learning how to effectively search on the internet.

Year 2 Forest School - We always have lots of fun in Forest School. Making mud pie, face painting and building dens are just some of the things we love.

Maths learning - In Year 2 we have been very busy with all different aspects of Maths - we also like to take our learning outside!
