Summer Holidays

Here are some fun activity booklets for you to complete over the summer if you would like some activities to complete.

Rockmount Sports Day from Home! W/C 13th July


This week we would like for you to take part in our Rockmount Sports Day from Home! This Sports Day can be completed independently or with siblings and is focused on encouraging you to achieve your personal best. This means you should try each activity at least 3 times to see if you can beat your previous scores and achieve your personal best. 

Coach Charlotte has put together some demonstration videos of each activity to show you exactly how they should be done. We understand that you may not have certain pieces of equipment at home. Therefore, we invite you to use your imagination to replicate the activities! For example, you could use a box to replicate a target area or a sock to replicate a bean bag. You could even use a toilet roll to replicate a football!

Attached below is a score card for you to download and use to record your scores and personal best. Please send them into the year group email address along with any photos of your Sports Day. We’d love to see how you get on!

Good luck!

Autumn Term

Year 2 have had a fun start to the new school year. We have been enjoying learning all about London through our topic 'London...Ablaze!'. We have researched famous London landmarks and created our own fact files as well as fun activities such as attempting to build London landmarks out of Lego. We have just started to learn about the history of the Great Fire of London and the impact this had on London. We are looking forward to an exciting visit from the local fire brigade to teach us about the importance of fire safety, as well as our trip into London to go on the London Eye and on a cruise on the Thames. Keep an eye out for some pictures!

Year 2 had a fantastic trip to London where we went on the London Eye and enjoyed a cruise down the River Thames. We saw lots of the famous landmarks that we had learnt about throughout our topic.

Our topic for autumn 2 is ‘India’. We have been researching and recording facts about India to create our own non-fiction book. We have also planned and created a diva lamp as well as learning how to sketch famous Indian landmarks. We had a visit from Nabhi who is from a local temple. As part of our RE learning, he taught us about the story of Rama and Sita.

As part of our topic ‘India’, we had a day at school dedicated to India. Everyone dressed up in bright, colourful clothing and we took part in lots of activities. We started the day by helping to cook vegetable curry, potato curry, peas pilau rice, mango lassi, sweet lassi and coconut squares. We had just one afternoon to learn an Indian dance ready to perform for our adults. At the end of the day we sang a song to our adults that we have been learning in music. We also performed the dance and then we all got to eat the delicious food we had made.

Spring Term

Year 2 are enjoying our topic 'Poles Apart'. We have been exploring Antarctica through our own research which we have been using to create an explanation text. We have been amazed by some of the facts that we have learnt about Emperor penguins. Did you know that an adult Emperor penguin is the same size as an average 6 year old child! We have completed an experiment based on our learning in science about materials. We planned and built a raft to get the gingerbread man safely across the river. We really enjoyed testing our designs by seeing if the raft could float for 30 seconds without sinking. We then reviewed our designs and discussed what went well and what we would change next time.
