Year 2 Welly Day!

We have had the best day on our Welly Day! After wrapping up to face the weather, we went on a scavenger hunt to find materials that could help us to build an ART SCULPTURE!

As you will see from our photos, we made all sorts!.From flowers, rockets and houses, to bridges and slides. 

Then we had a great time making clocks out of sticks and pebbles. We used chalk to draw the numbers on and put them in order- the same as a real clock. We then used sticks to make our clock hands- making sure one was shorter than the other!

Despite the cold, we had the best time. Please look at our photos to discover what we made!

Finally, we planted our "mystery seed" into small plant pots. We used the tools and soil to help us, now to wait and see what will grow...

Thank you kindly for your donations.

A huge WELL DONE to each and every child in Year Two for their fantastic performances. The children have all done incredibly well to learn their lines, the words to the songs and when to come on and off the stage in just over a week. They have also done it all with a smile on their face. Miss Leck and Miss Morris are exceptionally proud of all of them. 


We would also  like to say thank you for all the cards and gifts we have received this week. Have a wonderful Christmas break and we will see you all on Monday 8th January.




A visit from Rob the Fireman

This morning Otters and Moles enjoyed a visit from local fireman Rob. He was incredibly impressed with how well behaved the children were AND how much they knew about fire safety. Well done Year Two!

The Great Fire Of London

Our topic for this term is The Great Fire of London. The children have already shown great excitement and enthusiasm for this topic. 


So far we have discovered when the fire happened and how it is supposed to have started. We have discovered how the fire service was different in 1666 to now and how people had to try and put the fires out themselves. 


The children have discovered how to create timelines by making sure that they start with what happened first. 



There is a fantastic game here that the children may enjoy playing at home all about The Great Fire of London.



We have also spent the last 2 weeks focusing on adding. The children have learnt how to use the column method and have done exceptionally well. Well done Year Two!


 34           13          22          61        70

      12+         35+       46+      13+    21+    


If your child can show you how to work out these questions AND answer them correctly then please bring the questions in to show us and they may earn a Gold coin.




This term our topic is all about creepy crawlies! The children have enjoyed lots of creative art work, finding out facts, learning about habitats and seeing what minibeasts we can find in our school environment. 



The children are all very excited about our upcoming visit to Fyne Court where we can hopefully find some different minibeasts and explore some different habitats.
