RE day in Year 2

Today we learnt how Christians celebrate Christmas in India. The children learnt that in India people give to the poor instead of exchanging presents. A lot of families would eat a traditional curry on christmas instead of the turkey roast that we would eat. Some parts of India decorate a mango tree with an angel, star and other decorations. As a class we made and decorated our own mango tree.



We made fire pictures using tissue paper and created houses using black paper to represent how the Great Fire of London would have looked in 1666


Odd Sock Day

Highlighting anti-bullying

Our theme was a farmers field. The children used rolls in the warm up and then we used our bodies to make the shapes of hills in the farmer’s field. We finished the lesson learning how to  do a log roll, stretching our bodies.

In PE today we worked on our hand and eye co-ordination, agility and fitness at each fitness station.
In Maths we were regrouping pennies to make 10p.

In topic we have been learning about life in Kenya. We have been looking at the lifestyle of the Maasai Tribe and the children found out that the women in the tribe like to wear necklaces and the more beads they have on their necklace, the richer they are. As a class we made our own Maasai necklaces.
The children enjoyed meeting and learning about new animals in the workshop.  We have been looking at habitats in science, so it was great for the children to meet some animals, hear what kind of habitat they live in and why their habitat is suited to them.

In PE this week we worked on our relay practice and chest pass skills for athletics

The Daily Mile



Using resources to find equivalents


We sorted pictures into dead and alive. We followed a prompt sheet to work this out, using questions like does it grow, breathe and eat. 


We started the session with a dance warm up and followed this with a team game. we worked on speed and agility. We had to jump through the hoops and used rock, paper and scissors to compete against each other. 


What a fantastic day we had at the beach! The children thoroughly enjoyed digging in the sand, collecting shells and dipping their toes in the water. The competitive side came out as we competed in groups to build the best sand castle. Mrs Howath team won, using a wall to keep the waves away for aslong as possible. With the weather on our side we were able to enjoy lunch together on the beach, followed by an ice lolly to finish off a beautiful day. What a lovely way to finish off the year!

Art- Sketching local buildings using our pencil to shade and add texture to our drawings


Todays with the weather being on our side PE was able to take place outside. The focus for today was team work. The children worked in their house teams and participated in a group relay. This was followed by a foot golf course that they completed in pairs. It was great to see all the children encouraging their peers in each activity.

Year 2 Cake Sale

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to Year 2's cake sale and to everyone who supported us and purchased a cake from our stall. They children in Year 2 all had a great afternoon making cupcakes for their stall, to help raise money to reduce the cost of our summer trip. We are very proud to have raised a total of £75.


In year 2 we have really started to develop our tennis skills. This week we had a go with a partner, at using our learnt skills in a Rally.

World Market Day Art


We did a class experiment to test which materials are waterproof. We then decided as a class which materials would be suitable for certain jobs and why.

PE- Tennis Skills


In Science we have been looking at how we stop germs from spreading. We used glitter to show the children how germs can spread through touch, if we do not wash our hands.
