Welcome to Year 2 2020/2021!


This year is going to be really exciting and we are glad to have the children back at school. Even though some things might be a little different, we will all work together to keep each other safe while learning and having fun. Hopefully things will return to normal soon. 


The Year 2 teacher is Miss Ashton-Scott and the teaching assistants are Mrs Knowles-Leak and Mrs Crawley. Mrs Guinness will teach the class every Wednesday.


We will have two non-contact PE lessons a week which will be on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. The children will wear their PE kits to school on those days.

Muck, Mess and Mixture


Our new topic for this term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures. It is all about getting messy and exploring different textures, different states and having fun while we do it! 


Here are some Pick 'n Mix ideas for the topic. Enjoy! 

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets


Our topic for term 4 is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We are going to be learning about the history of castles and tunnels, creating our own bridges and much more!


Here are some resources for this term's topic. 

After learning at home for a number of weeks, we returned to school and while it was great to see our friends again, it was an adjustment to be back at school! 


Something that we used in the first week back is a picture journal. This helped us write down how we were feeling every day. It was lovely for the teachers to see how each child was feeling, especially after a tricky few weeks of not being in school! After this working so well, we have decided to use it at the start of the next two terms. 


Below you can find this resource if you would like to use it at home, too. 

Wriggle and Crawl 


Term 5's topic is Wriggle and Crawl. We are going to be looking out for minibeasts in the garden, learning about food chains as well as how animals live and their habitats. We are going to have lots of fun! 


Here are some resources that you can use at home:
