This week, Year 2 have been learning all about Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need. Today, they showed their support for both by wearing something blue and something spotty.
“We raised money by dressing up and going to things after school”
“We should all be nice to each other and not be mean”
“Lots of children get bullied or are poor so don’t have medicine so we should help them”
Year 2 were very lucky last week, as we got to do some art with an artist! We created beads made of clay and sequin balls. We asked the artist questions about being an artist and she showed us some of her amazing art work!
Here are some photos of our arty afternoon:
Bradley- I love using clay!
Isra- These sequins are pretty.
Lah-nee – We got to meet a real artist!
Year 2 have had a fun first week back after the half term. Today, we started our new geography topic ‘ What will we see on our journey around the world? We enjoyed locating the continents and oceans on our own maps. We can’t wait to explore our new topic and to begin our journey around the world!
Here are some photos of us making a giant world map:

Year 2 had an amazing Arts week! We did lots of exciting activities like making planets, creating pom pom aliens and even designing our very own space ships! We also developed our dancing, acting and photography skills in some fantastic workshops!

It was an exciting day in Year 2 today as British Airways flew in to show us how things work on an aeroplane.
We were all issued our very own passports and after filling them out we were led down the aisle by the friendly flight attendants before being buckled into our seats for a flight to sunny Italy!
Along the way two lucky students got to don the captains hat and jacket and sit in the cockpit (luckily the senior captain kept the controls to himself).
Some of us got to be flight attendants and help deliver the all-important air safety speech. It was really fun getting to explain where the exits were, but the highlight of the trip was getting to see our teachers demonstrate the inflatable life jackets – a few of them looked a little scared but they were in safe hands.
The special visit was very interesting because we have been learning about transport in Hounslow in history this term, and although Hounslow aerodrome has long since closed down, we’re still right next to Heathrow and we get a front row seat to all those planes landing and taking off!
Thank you British Airways, we hope you enjoyed your flight with Beavers Community Primary School!
This week, Year 2 had a visitor from the Fire Brigade to speak about fire safety.
Here is some information that we learnt to keep safe:
Plan your escape and keep it clear every night.
Never leave cooking by itself
Don’t forget to blow out your candles and put them on a table
Switch your tv off at the plug before you go to sleep
Make sure you have a smoke alarm and test it!
Don’t forget to test your smoke alarms! If you don’t have one you can get one free from the local fire station
Article 6- Every child has the right to life and stay safe. Governments must do all they can to make sure that children survive and develop to their full potential.
Year 2 had a great time on our trip to Kew Gardens this Wednesday. We learnt a lot of interesting things about plants. Here are some pictures from our fantastic day out:
