Welcome to Class 2
Message in a Bottle - May 2018
Year 2 at Ravensmere began by creating their own island ready for their island adventure.
They were happily rowing across beautiful sea when disaster struck. Thankfully they were able to swim to the safety of a nearby island. Here they set about writing their messages in a bottle.
Traditional Tales - April 2018
In Class 2 we worked in groups to act out some well known traditional tales.
The children had to narrate their stories and worked together to make their own props.
Norwich Castle - March 2018
On Thursday 8th March, Ravensmere Infant School visited Norwich Castle as part of their learning on Castles.
We had a fantastic time meeting some of the residents of the castle and learning all about what life was like living in the castle.
The children had the opportunity to handle and explore various objects that were several hundred years old as well as having a go at making their own pennant. They also learnt what it was like to work in the castle and about the types of jobs that different people had.
We all had a brilliant day and have enjoyed bringing what we learnt on the trip back in to the classroom.
World Book Day - March 2018
Due to the heavy snow, we rescheduled our World Book Day for Friday 9th March and were so impressed with the amount of children that were able to come to school in such fantastic costumes!
The children also took part in some book themed activities throughout the day!
Rockets - February 2018
As part of their topic on space, Class 1 and Class 2 designed and made rockets.
They began by making a prototype which they tested using the stomp rocket. They then made their final design using what they had learnt from their prototype.
The children went on to measure the distance their rocket travelled and then answered questions relating to everyone’s results.
Light and Dark - January 2018
As part of their ongoing learning on space, Class 1 and Class 2 took part in a morning of scientific investigations, including an experiment on light and dark.
The children were encouraged to make predictions about which materials would best block the light.
They then tested their materials by making a den with each material and seeing which blocked most of the light.
Alien Crash Landing - 30th January 2018
Ravensmere got a surprise this week as an alien spaceship crash landed in their playground!
The children approached the spaceship very carefully and listened to see if they could hear anything inside it.
They then cordoned off the area and made signs to let the aliens know they were welcome and not to be scared!
The Tiger Who Came to Tea - 30th November 2017
On 30th November Class 1 and Class 2 were lucky enough to visit the Norwich Playhouse to see a production of 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea'.
All the children had a lovely time and really enjoyed the production!

Here are some photos and videos of Class 2 on our Firework Share morning.
London Landmarks - November 2017

Marshmallow Constructions - Autumn 2017

Autumn Poems - October 2017
In English, Ravensmere Class 1 and Class 2 have been writing Autumn Poems. We went on an Autumn walk to get some inspiration for our poems. We used our senses to describe the signs of Autumn, we also had an Autumn spotter sheet and made Autumn crowns.
When we came back to school we worked in pairs to think of some fantastic adjectives to describe Autumn.
We then wrote individual poems for our display. And performed them in from of the class.

Class 2 have been looking at the story of the Little Red Hen. They then baked bread using Maths skills to measure and weigh the ingredients.
