Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day

Year 2 have had a wonderful trip to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

We saw lots of endangered animals, including our favourite - the four polar bears!

We also had a workshop where we found out lots of facts and even got to handle some of the animals.




Year 2

May News

As part of our Mantle of the Expert learning, we are becoming

Park Designers.  We are making a new park for the children as the Selfish Giant will not let us play in his garden any more.

We have been to Centre Vale Park to look at what kind of things we would like to have in our parks.







We have been very busy this term- please come to our class assembly on 31st March to see what we have been up to.

Look at the slideshow above to see some of the maths we have been doing since February half term.



The Great Fire of London

Year 2 made models, created powerpoints, wrote poems, drew pictures and collaged to make their own versions of the Great Fire of London.  What an amazing job!!

Our latest News

October has been a very busy month.  We have finished information gathering and are now in the process of stocking our farm shops with all our produce - the winning team will be announced after the half term holiday.  Look at the photographs of us creating our farms and making our produce.


Year 2 have settled into our new class really well.  

We have been really busy in September, we have been on a visit to Thornton Hall Farm - photos below.

We have also organised our charity day.


Year 2’s charity was Jeans for Genes.  On Friday 22nd September the school went denim crazy to raise funds.
Year 2 found out that your genes are like baking– “if you don’t have the right ingredients in the right amounts then your buns won’t be the same as everyone else’s, they won’t turn out right.”
A big THANK YOU to all the Mini Marys  and Pauls for baking buns and biscuits at home and selling them in our shop.  Year 2 are very pleased to let you know that we raised £198  - Well done!

Year 2 had a great day at the farm.  At the start of our topic we went to find out about A Day in the Life of A Farmer.  We spent the day with Lizzie finding out about how to care for animals and how useful they are for us.
