We would like to say a huge thank you to you, the wonderful parents of our year two pupils. We were overwhelmed by your incredibly kind and generous gifts. It really is very kind of you and it is greatly appreciated. Teaching your wonderful children has been our pleasure, we will miss them all very much and wish them all the very best for year three.

Have a wonderful summer everyone and we look forward to seeing you in September.

Happy New Year.

We hope you all had a relaxing Christmas holiday and are all safe and well. We have been busy in school getting ready for your return but now sadly it doesn't look like we will be seeing you. Until further notice please access this week's learning by following the 'Home learning' icon. You will find a daily reading task and daily Maths activity. There are two writing tasks, two theme activities, one spag and one science. 

We will be in touch shortly.

Christingle - it was fun, sticky and yummy!

We designed our own dragons and described them using similes and exciting adjectives

Science materials topic - which material would be the most suitable for an Astronappy?

Safety Seymour virtual visit to our class

Science - this week we were investigating the best material to make blackout curtains for a bear's cave.


During our recent parent telephone calls, some parents asked about ideas to support their child with maths at home, aswell as completing their maths homework pages.

We would recommend quick fire questions asked in a fun way that focus on speedy recall of pairs to 10, then pairs to 20, mental maths addition and subtraction within 20 (eg 7 + 12=, 18 - 5 =) and multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Below are links to websites that you may wish to look at for further games and ideas.

If you have any questions please ask.


Dragon Sighting!

Year two have discovered a mysterious egg in the school forest. There have since been sightings of a baby dragon so we advise that if you see an unusual flying animal, please do not approach it!

Evidence from the forest and our descriptions and reports of it!

Remembrance day - poppy painting and poetry.

Great Fire of London display and character descriptions of Samuel Pepys.

Hope - year 2's class collective worship

The children have worked hard to create a class assembly video introducing our new whole school value 'Hope'. If you would like to watch the video, please follow this internal link to the video resource centre where you will find it in the 'Class Collective Worship' folder. 


This week the children have been learning about 'Protective behaviours'. Please click on the links below for further information. There are a few photos to show the activities the children have taken part in to learn about keeping ourselves safe.

Protective Behaviours

Black History Month - We have learned about the live of Mary Seacole and Mary Prince

It has been great to welcome Year 2 back to school and we've already had a brilliant week and a half together. Please keep an eye on this class web page as it is where we will share information about how best to support learners in Year 2, plus we'll be sure to keep you up to date with what we've been up to at school.

What a wonderful world

After reading 'Here we are, notes for living on planet Earth', we started thinking about all of the amazing things we love about our wonderful world. The children had lots of great ideas. Then we wrote, illustrated and performed our own new and improved version of the song 'What wonderful world'. We hope you enjoy it!
