Welcome to Y2

What an amazing first week back we have had in Year 2. The children have been fantastic and both Miss Mallinson and Miss Gibson have been amazed by the work.

We have also loved seeing your summer home learning coming back into school. Here are some pictures of the dream jars so far!


Mini Beast hunt

With Mrs Hawksworth, the children have enjoyed over the last 2 weeks looking around our school’s environment for mini beast. The children have used their graph skills to collect the information and record this. after this, they thought about the mini beast habitats and what they needs in them.


We have been learning all about position and direction in Y2 this week. Today we tried to put their directions skills to the test by trying to find the treasure without the sharks attacking us!

Y2 Parent Celebration

Year 2 had a very busy and fun day yesterday. We made sock puppets for our new story, ‘The Detective Dog’ which the children really enjoyed making.

We wanted to say thank you to all of the parents that came to the Y2 Celebration yesterday.




Chinese Visitors

We have been very lucky in Y2HM today as we have had some Chinese teachers come in to teach us how to write some Chinese characters.

The children were fabulous and enjoyed using the magic paper, special brushes and ink!

Green fingers! 

We have been embracing our learning about plants and using our green fingers – with different degrees of success! 

Here is a picture of the sunflowers in Y2HM. I hope you are looking after them at home and they continue to grow! 

Travel guide update!

The children have worked so hard in their writing over the last two weeks to complete their first two pages. 

After research, they have written their inviting information about different attractions and places to eat. Some of the children have take so much care with coping these up. 

Here are just a few examples 

Lowry Art

Over the last two afternoons, we have been looking at LS Lowry’s art work. The children noticed how he used dull colours and didn’t draw faces. 

The children then tried to recreate their own seascape pictures. Here is some of here first drafts.
