Year 2 enjoyed our trip to the Herbert Art Gallery on 21st February. Look at us in pictures!                                                                                   





                      We had a visit from the WASPS player Tom Young.

 In geography, we used aerial images on Google to locate our local area. Some of us located our addresses and other familiar places. It was so exciting!   


In Science, we looked at a range of everyday objects and discussed the materials they were made of. We then grouped the  objects according to their properties and materials. Look at us!



Our current Literacy target is: The correct use of punctuations, correct formation of letters and neat presentation. We are reading the book 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. We will use it as a model to write descriptive and creative pieces. 

Our current Numeracy topic is: Place Value.

Our current Science topic is: Growing Up.

Our Current Creative Curriculum Topic is: Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

We had a visit from Santa before the Christmas holidays. 



Our first trip in year 2 was to the Albany Theatre to watch the Snow Queen on Thursday 12th December 2019. Look at some of our pictures.


 Have a look at our book corner.

We dressed up as detectives to launch our new creative curriculum 'Street Detectives'. Don't we look the part? A local historian (who worked at the zoo) came in to tell us about the former Whitley Zoo. It was so exciting and we asked lots of questions. We learned so much about how our local area has changed. 


We dressed in non-uniform to mark an​ti-bullying week and children in need. 


We made divas out of clay to mark the festival of Diwali.


In the KS2 Diwali assemby, two of our class members joined some KS2 children to perform a special Diwali dance. Here they are looking absolutely fabulous!            



Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to support us in our first showcase.We hope you had a wonderful time. The children were stars. Look!

In maths, we have been using counting on forwards and backwards. To make it easier and more fun, we played Snakes and Ladders on a maths morning. Look at some of us!


Golden time in Aspen.



Look at us locating famous towers on a world map! 


In literacy, we identified the features of an explanation text on castles. Look at us!


In ICT, we coded a programme on castles. How cool!
