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 2019

The Three Little Pigs

The Autumn term was a busy one! It began with our topic on the Three Little Pigs, where we explored different versions of this traditional fairly tale.

 

Science

We spent lots of time exploring animals during our science topic and the children produced some fantastic non-fiction writing. We learned about what humans need to survive and stay healthy. The children loved designing, making and eating a sandwich!

 
 

 

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 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 though 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 produced some very persuasive writing!

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.

 

 

 Christmas

We finished the half term performing our Christmas performance, Angel Express, which linked very well with the RE topic, Angels, and how important they were as messengers in the Christmas story. This year’s performance enabled lots of children to have a role and everyone performed brilliantly on the day.

 

  A big thank you to all those parents who joined us for Santa's Workshop. They were well attended and both adults and children seemed to have lots of fun.
