Year 2 Christmas Sewing

To help with further developing their fine motor and creative skills, the Year 2 children have been enjoying working on Christmas sewing projects.  They have been busy sewing Christmas stockings and cannot wait to bring them home this week.  Their sewing skills have come on so well, and they have made lovely keepsakes to remember their Christmas in Year 2!


Year 2 Candle Flame Art

As part of our ‘Glitter and Glow’ topic, the year 2 children have been learning about light and darkness.  We enjoyed further developing our creative skills by making candle flame collages.  We looked closely at the colours and shapes in candle flames before recreating them using a variety of papers and techniques.  The end products were really striking!


Year 2 Candle Making

As part of our ‘Glitter and Glow’ topic, the Year 2 children have been finding out about light and darkness.  We decided to design and make our own candles.  The children began by designing their candles, before they undertook the ‘making’ part of the process.  Finally the children evaluated their candles.  I’m sure you heard all about their hard work when the children took their candles home last week!  Da iawn Year 2 – super candle designing, making and evaluating!


Year 2 Museum Trip

Last Friday, the Year 2 children visited Swansea Museum to find out more about Victorian Christmas Traditions.  We had a wonderful time, and enjoyed finding out more about Victorian decorations, traditions and toys.  We all got a chance to join in with stories and to try out different old-fashioned toys.  We really enjoyed our trip to the museum and thought it was a great way to finish this term’s ‘Glitter and Glow’ topic.


Year 2 Waterfront Winterland Fun

A fantastic time was had by everyone today on our fun-filled Christmas trip.  The children thoroughly enjoyed going on rides and meeting Santa.  We then had a great time watching ‘The Penguins of Madagascar’.  The children were so well behaved and I was proud of each and every one of them.  What a lovely start to the last week of term.
