Year 2

It’s been another busy week in year 2!

In Maths we have been working on our number knowledge and have been regrouping numbers in different ways. In English we have been reading the book ‘The man on the moon' and even went on an adventure to the moon ourselves. We used the experience of our adventure to gather a variety of adjectives to make our writing more exciting. In science we began our topic of ‘materials' and have been looking at what different objects are made of.


Our school theme this year is Dare to Dream, so we will be talking about our dreams and aspirations.

Have a lovely week,

The year 2 team.

Welcome back everyone.  It was great to see so many happy faces (pupils and adults) ready for the start of a new academic year. We hope that you have had enjoyed the summer break and took advantage of the sunnier days.


Our theme this term is ‘Let’s Explore’, so we have been reading about Neil Armstrong, Dr Mae Jemison and Christopher Columbus.

We have been studying the artist Keith Haring ready for our own art display. We are using (very messy) pastels to create our interpretation of his style of work.

Our maths lessons have been mainly outside and using objects from our environment – twigs, leaves and flowers to show number bonds to 10, number sentences, shapes and patterns.  Pupils even found a grasshopper!

Year 2 will be having their Game On session on Monday afternoon and PE lesson on Friday afternoon, so please ensure PE kits are in school and that they are labelled clearly.
