Year Two

Hi. Welcome to Year 2 at Amble First School. I can't wait to tell you more about our exciting new curriculum. This will start in September and the children will be helping us design it during our transition sessions. 
If you would like to meet me at any point to discuss your child's transition into Year 2 please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I look forward to getting to know this fantastic class even better than I do already. I'm a very lucky teacher to have them joining me in September!

11.6.19 - Today we explored a range of science investigations because the class told me last week that they love science. We looked at how to make raisins dance, dancing sprinkles, static electricity and some STEM building challenges. On our next transition Tuesday, we are going to start exploring our new September curriculum. We have decided our first topic will be 'What Makes Amble Amazing?' so if you have any great ideas please send them my way!
18.6.19 - Today we looked at our September topic of 'What Makes Amble Amazing?' We explored a range of questions about our amazing town. The children then designed an Amble flag while thinking about the special things about Amble to draw on it. They had a chance to think about what they wanted to learn about. I particularly liked one child's question of 'What is on Coquet Island?' so we will definitely explore this in September. Some children were interested in when Amble started to be built so we will also look at Amble's history.
4.7.19 - Today we had a full day for transition between year groups. The new year two children have done lots of different activities including learning how to use Ozobots. They have looked at how we can work together as a team next year and have created displays about teamwork. We looked at teamwork in the film of Toy Story 4 and made our very own 'Forkie' character. We then wrote an adventure story about Forkie so that Miss G-O could see how well we write. We also did some maths tasks so Miss G-O could see our fabulous maths skills! Wow, what a busy day!
