Year 2 and 3 - Honey Bee class

Honey Bee Summer 2 Review

Our topic has been ‘Overcoming Obstacles’, we have learnt about what we can do when things go wrong. Focusing on Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah and Henry Fraser and learning about their struggles in life and how they overcame them. It has been very inspirational! We have had a wellbeing focus, involving sketching beautiful pictures outside in the sunshine.  

In English we have been finalising our writing skills and putting together everything we have learnt this year. We applied different sentence types and word types. We even dived deeper into Fronted Adverbials and learnt about using why/when/how/where to describe our verbs. We then used all these new skills to write diary entries about Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah.  

In Maths, we have looked at 3D and 2D shapes. To start with, we learnt about right angles, acute angles, and obtuse angles. We then went on to learn about parallel and perpendicular lines. After finishing our shape unit, we looked at time, learning how to read digital clocks and tell the time to the nearest minute.  

We took a trip to the church during our RE learning whilst we learnt about different places of worship and why they are so sacred to believers. In Computing, we have learnt about how to email safely and what to look out for when sending and receiving emails as we get older. We have focused on our Athletics in PE in preparation for sports day which was a blast! We had lots of fun, taking part in many different challenges alongside our houses. We learnt about team spirit and how important it is to always try your best.

We spent a lot of time learning about the work of Henry Fraser as part of our art. After him inspiring us, we just had to have a try at foot and hand painting and seeing how difficult it must be to face these challenges every day.


We have had the most amazing year, but now it is time for it to end and for us to enjoy the summer ahead of us!
