Year 2

We are Year 2. We have two classes; 2BP, whose teachers are Ms Butler & Mrs Page and 2P, whose teacher is Mrs Pugh. Read the Year 2 Curriculum and our latest newsletter.

Spring Term 2019:

This term our topic is: UP, UP AND AWAY TO CHINA!

This term we will be finding out about life in China based on the book Vikrang's diary (about a 7 year old girl living in Shanghai).  We will be comparing and contrasting life in a large city with children's lives in the country. We will investigate the physical geography of the country and compare it to that of the UK, visiting the big cities, walking along the Great Wall, seeing rice being grown in the paddy fields, peeping inside the temples and panda-watching in the mountains!    The children will learn Chinese New Year dances and some traditional Chinese games.  They will also design Chinese food for a Chinese New Year Banquet!

Please see the Curriculum Topic Web above for further information regarding the curriclum for Year 2 this term.

Willow Pattern Story

Year 2 children read the Willow Pattern story to the rest of the school in a Celebration assembly and then showed the Willow Pattern plates which they had designed and then made.


Autumn Term 2018 - Visit to Donnington Castle

‘Knights’ was our topic last term. We spent time reading and writing about the history of knights and castles from the Norman times.  In science we tested the most suitable materials for a knight's armour and for building castles. In ICT we designed our own 2D shape castles to create a 2D castle collage.  Later in the term we enjoyed reading about the legend of King Arthur and discovered more about dragons to help inspire some creative writing.
