What’s going on in Year 2…


Summer Term 2021


NSPCC Number Day 7th May

We had the best day exploring numbers in different forms. We even dressed to impress…

We interviewed each other and recorded the data in tally charts and pictographs!

We explored movement and numbers by making multiples of 2,5 and 10


We set the class the challenge of finding different animals in their natural habitat.

Miss Grice found many feathered friends by the river and canal near her house…

Ahmed spent his Thursday during a polling day cleaning up beach habitats!

But Sadie has to be our winner of the most unexpected habitat so far…

Chester Zoo interactive visit

Year 2 loved getting the chance to speak to an animal expert. We learned all about rare and endangered animals and what Chester Zoo is doing in their conservation battle

The UK – in play-dough form…

Year 2 discovered the joys of map making as we learned about the countries in the U.K. We plan to become map experts as we delve into EXACTLY what goes into making aerial maps.

PE Playground Games

This half term we are learning key skills such as running, jumping and throwing though different playground games.

The Land of Make Believe
Year 2 read the story ‘The Jolly Postman’ and it took us on a very unexpected road to visits from wolves delivering letters, creating maps to tell stories, innovating with post-its, using technology to help us write and becoming experts in all things fairy tale!
