2H P.E Lesson


The children were very excited to be using the wall bars today!

2H Forest School


World Book Day 'Egg Heads'


Great Fire of London Experience Day


On Thursday 24th February, Year 2 travelled back to 1666 to experience life before, during and after the Great Fire. The children tried out various jobs of the time such as apothecaries, bakers, plague doctors and rat catchers. Next they stepped into a map of London and took on the roles of the King, The Mayor and Samuel Pepys. Finally, they became archaeologists and sifted through the ashes to see what they could learn about the occupants of London from the items they left behind.

Art - Hot and Cold Colours


This week in art, Year 2 have been experimenting with hot and cold tones and created these lovely double-page spreads in their sketch books. 



Building a Bug Hotel 


Year 2 had great fun building a microhabitat. We are hoping it attracts lots of insects for us to observe!



Mapping Antarctica


This week we have been learning about Sir Ernest Shackleton and his Trans-Antarctic expedition. Today we worked in groups to map Antarctica using skipping ropes.  


Paired Reading


Today Year 2 paired up with their Early Years buddies to share a story! 

Remembrance Artwork


This week, the children in Year 2 have explored perspective and mixed media to create poppy field pictures. We are so pleased with how these turned out and we hope you like them too!

2H Science Experiment


Today 2H conducted an experiment to find out which materials are waterproof and therefore suitable for making a raincoat from. Children had to be precise and work collaboratively to answer the question and test their predictions.

2H Forest School



During this session of Forest School the children mixed mud potions and explored a range of tools to dig holes and make bug hotels. As you can see, they engaged with purpose and creativity! 


Brain Breaks Year 2 Style


In Year 2 we use brain breaks to energise or relax us. Here you can see some photos of 2C taking part in yoga and pool noodle drumming. 

Forest School


Today in Forest School, 2C took part in lots of fun activities including a scavenger hunt to find ingredients for a potion, Secret Squirrel (hiding in the forest) and the creation of bug hotels. They were encouraged to use the skills of team work, communication and problem solving. 

Paper Helicopters 


2C have been making paper helicopters to practise reading and writing instructions. Lucky for us we had a sunny and windy day for our test flights!



2H carefully drew patterns with black pen and used colour pencils to produce beautiful hot air balloons to display on our classroom wall. We also used our sketch books to practice using watercolor paints. We had a lot of creative fun!
