Summer 2 topic is Through The Decades

Time Capsule arrived

What a start to our 'Through the Decades topic' at the beginning of the week lots of old artefacts arrived in our school hall. We had lots of fun look at them and find out what they were. Take a look at the photos to see what we discovered.

Dancing through the Decades

In PE we are going to be learning dances from different decades. This week we learnt the Hand Jive from the 1950s

Superhero Day 

A fantastic day to end our Superhero topic. Thank you to both parents and children for making a a brilliant effort with the costume. The children and staff had a great day.

Pumpkin Soup

We read the story 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper in class. We used this for our PSHE lesson's to discuss friendship and about getting along and falling out and how to resolve problems. We then retold the story in our own words. We have some fantastic writers in Year 2. We then followed instructions to make a paper pumpkin and pumpkin soup. Some children loved the soup, others not so much. We designed our own scary pumpkin faces too.

Black History Month

In school we are celebrating Black History Month. Year 2 are learning about the famous African-American expressionist artist called Alma Thomas. We recreated her work using water colour paint as well as using paint tools on Purple Mash.


We all had a fantastic day celebrating club colours in Year 2. We had a fun filled football day. We wrote football poems in English, focused on greater and less than football shirts in Maths. In computing we used an art program on Purple Mash to design a football kit. Then in Art we designed our own football shirt in the style of pointillism. During our mile run we even had a visit from Top Cat. Can we just say a massive thank you to everyone who raised sponsor money too.

In Geography we have been learning about mapping and out local area. We started off by creating a map of our classroom and then our school grounds. We then went on a walk outside of the school area. We looked at the different houses and linked it to our materials  topic. When we got back to school we used Google Maps to identify where some of the children live.

Amazing Maths

morleya on: YEAR 2 NEWS

Over the last few weeks the children have been working really hard on place value in Maths. We are very impressed on how well they have remember some of the work they learnt in Year One. Last week they learnt about partitioning a two digit numbers using the part-whole model.
