Keep scrolling to find out what we have been up to in Year 2!


We have had an exciting first few weeks in Year 2 and have spent time getting to know each other, and a few pirates too!


We were lucky to have a visit from a local farm. Other than getting a bit muddy, we had a great time meeting and learning about the animals and finding out about their needs and wants.


In maths we have looked at place value, addition and subtraction, measuring and shape! Here is a few pictures of us exploring the concepts in different ways...


We spent the afternoon celebrating Diwali! We read and discussed the story of Rama and Sita and sequenced and retold the story in our own words. We made Diva Lamps as lamps were lit to guide Rama and Sita’s way home.

We designed Rangoli patterns as they are traditionally drawn on the floor by the front door to encourage the Goddess Lakshmi to enter homes. We used rice, grains, flour, sand and chalk. The end result was amazing!  

We were very lucky to have the POP Project in school. The assembly focused on showing us how to keep a healthy mind, body and spirit. We enjoyed singing and dancing along with the music!


Welcome back! Please see below for our Spring term topic letter and medium term plan.

Snow Day!

 We had lots of fun playing in the snow before we got on with our usual lessons.

Our new topic is all about life on the farm. We have started to observe seeds that we have planted in class and we are considering what they need to grow.

 Welcome back to Year 2!


We have lots to look forward to in the summer term, please see our topic letter and medium term plan below.
