25/02/2020 - Class 5's INSPIRE
On Wednesday, Class 5 had their INSPIRE morning. It was wonderful to see so many parents, carers and other special adults come to support their child's learning. We had a fabulous morning! Firstly, we learned how to use highlighters to help us to answer comprehension questions. Then we used money coins to make given amounts. Finally, each child created a bridge using everday materials as part of our topic learning. We were blown away by the quality of the bridges that were made and we would like to thank all the adults who provided the children with resources and ideas!
04/02/2020 - Class 5 sign language!
In Class 5 we have been very busy and we have been learning sign language! We are learning why sign language is an important life skill and we have learned how to sign our names, basic manners and we have learned how to sign a George Ezra song! The children enjoy signing so much that we learn new songs every week!
20/12/2019 Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas everybody!
Year 2 have been super busy this week enjoying lots of Christmas activities! We made our own Christmas ornaments, made our own gingerbread men, created our own Christingle and explored how Christians celebrate Christmas. We also enjoyed our Christmas jumper day and carol singing to our parents and carers!
The Year 2 team would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your lovely cards and gifts. We hope you all enjoy a well deserved two week holiday and we will see you in January!

09/12/2019 & 12/12/2019 Year 2 Nativity!
Year 2 have been very busy this week performing our show-stopping nativity 'A Midwife Crisis'! All the hard work paid off on the day and the children performed amazingly well! A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who provided costumes for us. Miss Davis, Miss Entwistle and the Year 2 team feel very proud of every single one of you! It wasn't a crisis after all...
05/11/2019 Remember, remember the 5th of November!
Year 2 have had a very busy day today taking part in activities to remember a very special day! Class 5 and 6 created firework displays, created chocolate sparklers and enjoyed a cup of warm hot chocolate outside. Year 2 are going to be learning all about the Gunpowder plot in their topic and literacy lessons so this was a lovely way to kick-start our learning.
21/10/2019 Spirituality day
On Monday, the whole school focused on our Spirituality Day. The theme for the day was 'being responsible for our world'. Year 2 had a big discussion about our world and if we are being truly responsible for it. We explored the creation story in the book of Genesis. For the rest of the day, we learned lots about plastic pollution and the issues that our planet is currently facing. We learned about the 3 R's; recycle, re-use and reduce and we then created posters to raise awareness about this. We also thought of ideas of how we could reduce using plastic and how other people or businesses could do this also. We then created a class fish out of recycled plastic bottles for our display in our classroom.
In Year 2 we are learning about Healthy Living. We have looked at the different foods we should eat and the importance of a balanced diet. We are learning the importance of keeping clean and had a special visitor come in. A local dentist showed us how to look after our teeth. The importance of how and when to clean your teeth... not forgetting the flossing!
To see the consequences of when you don’t look after your teeth we did an egg experiment. We put an egg in three types of different liquids: coke, milk, lemonade and water. This helped us see what can happen to our teeth if we drink some of these drinks too often and not brush our teeth. We loved seeing the results of our experiment. A lesson to us all - the importance of drinking water!
