What is Year 2 like at East Sheen Primary School?
We go on exciting school trips – we make pizzas at Pizza Express, visit Orleans House Gallery and the National Archives and we go to The Wetlands Centre in the summer time. We learn about lots of interesting things: The Fire of London, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, penguins, life in Mexico, growing things and keeping healthy. Anthony Browne and Oliver Jeffers are two authors who write exciting stories and we really love the work about that. We also do lots of artwork about different materials like making our own tie dyes.
We take responsibility in year 2 and help the teachers by doing jobs like taking the playtime equipment outside and enjoy setting a good example for the younger children.
There are many clubs for year 2 such as drama, chess, karate, multi-sports and gymnastics. We also learn to play the violin, flute or the guitar.
At the end of the year we have our ‘Graduation Day’ to celebrate the end of the Infants and the start of the Juniors.
So you can see that year 2 is really fun!
