Year 2



We had an exciting morning up at the park taking part in a Music Workshop.  We had fun singing songs, hunting for bears and collecting leaves and flowers to create some artwork. 

Today we celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee, as part of our celebrations we took part in a Circus Workshop. We enjoyed learning how to use the different circus equipment.

We enjoyed working with Mrs Varley learning two dance routines for International Dance Day.

We had some visitors to help us with our ‘Animals including Humans science work.’ 
March 22 

We've really enjoyed our DT and Science topic making healthy snacks. 

14.10.20 - Today in Science we have been testing materials to see if we could change their shape. We tested twisting, bending, squashing and stretching and then recorded our results.

09.10.20 - We finished our 'Great Fire of London' pictures this afternoon and I hope you'll agree they look very effective. Well done Year 2.


Today in R.E we have been reflecting on God's beautiful world and the changes that we see in Autumn. The children have created the most lovely leaf lanterns which we have displayed in the classroom. Well done Year 2.

30.9.20 - This afternoon, children have been playing a game on ‘The Great Fire of London’. They enjoyed this and it would be nice to share at home so parents can see what we have been learning. 

The link is as follows and can be used on an iPad or computer. 

23.09.20 - This afternoon in Year 2, we have been thinking about keeping our minds healthy as well as our bodies. We thought about how smiling makes us and others feel better. We listened to the story ‘Augustus and his smile’ and made our own smiling tigers!

10.0.20 Today children were learning about tens and ones and making 2 digit numbers using diennes.
