Welcome to Year 2!






Take a look at the Maths curriculum in the learning section of our website. We have put on lots of brilliant activities from Inspire for each year group to try at home.

Here are our Spellathon winners!

Fantastic effort everyone in Year 1 and Year 2 - Well done!

We have been very busy - Please take a look

We have started learning about animals that make tunnels. We went for a welly walk down the field. This is what we discovered. We were amazed by what is underground! Please ask the children to tell you...

During our whole school art week Year 2 were learning about the Bible story Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. We learned about colour mixing and had to make as many different colours as we could.

Before Christmas we learned about the Jewish festival Hanukkah. We made dreidels and had a go at playing the game. We had to work together to make the dreidel from a net.

We looked at photographs by the artist Carl Warner. He made photographs of food landscapes. The children had a great time working together to create their own 'foodscapes'.

We made ice cream in a bag! The children couldn't believe how fast it happened!

We made pictures and patterns using coloured ice cubes!

We had great fun investigating which soap makes the best bubbles!

In science we have been finding out what happens when you mix different materials with water. We predicted first and then tested each one. We used glitter, cooking oil, flour, cornflour, salt, sugar and washing up liquid. Some of the results really surprised us.

We had a wonderfully messy time in our Messy Mixtures Laboratory!

Land Ahoy! - Meet the Pirates!

We had a fabulous day with lots of pirate activities.

Year 2 have been doing some exciting science with Mrs Smith. We have been investigating how boats float. We had to use plasticine and work with a partner to make it float.

Mrs Smith had some Pirate Treasure in ice, we had to investigate how to get it out. We had salt, paper, glue spreaders, stones and paint brushes.

In RE this week we are learning about the Hindu Festival of Divali. We watched a DVD showing the story of Rama and Sita. We made puppets to retell the story and Mrs Smith taught us 3 Indian dances; snake dance, classical dance and stick dance. We remembered when we were in Reception class and a Mum came in and dressed us in saris.
