Here you will find information about the topics we have covered over the year and the trips and events that we have undertaken. We like to get out and about in the local community and enjoy many visitors coming into school.  

Year 2 encourages and focuses on independence and offers many responsibilities to the children to take on roles within the classroom and the school as a whole.

Take a look at what we have been learning about and enjoy viewing the photos of our trips and events. 

 

 

Autumn Term 2020

 

The Three Little Pigs

It was great to be back at school in the autumn term. It has been busy and challenging but the children have been fantastic throughout.

It began with our topic on the Three Little Pigs, where we explored different versions of this traditional fairy tale.

 

 

Science

During our science topic we explored what animals, including humans, need to survive.

We found a message in a bottle from a castaway and wrote a survival guide to help them survive!

We also thought about staying healthy and what a healthy diet looks like.

 

 

The Gunpowder Plot

The children were fascinated about our topic in Guy Fawkes.

They enjoyed learning about the Gunpowder Plot, looking at historical sources and deciding whether they thought Guy Fawkes or King James I was right. There was some thought-provoking discussion about whether his actions were justified or not and the children were brilliant detectives, questioning whether we should believe the things different sources tell us.

 

 

Art Week (Bridgette Riley)

Everyone loved our art week where we learned about the Op-Art of Bridgette Riley.

The children created some incredible individual and collaborative art.

 

The Owl and the Pussycat

The children loved discovering Edward Lear’s poem “The Owl and the Pussy-cat”. They enjoyed learning to recite it and exploring the wonderful vocabulary. To finish our topic, the children wrote an extra verse for the poem to continue the story. There were some wonderful ideas which they loved performing to the class.
