Year 2


Year 2 have been busy this term learning lots of new things. In maths, we have been working hard looking at place value, addition and subtraction. We have been using lots of different resources to help us. We like using cuisennaire rods, calculation mats and and place value counters to help us understand our maths.


In R.E we have been learning about festivals of light. We studied Diwali and after reading the story of Rama and Sita, we used clay to make our own diva lamps. We carefully used tools to create out own design on the diva lamps.

As part of our Geography topic ‘Our Wonderful World,’ we looked at the seven continents of the world. We researched Europe and were French food tasters for the afternoon. We tasted Brie, croissants, quiche and brioche. The brioche was a big hit but nobody enjoyed the brie!

In History we have been learning all about the gunpowder plot. We learnt all about the plotters, why they wanted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and how it all went wrong. We worked in groups to act out different stages of the plot.

This half term we have been really lucky because we have been learning how to play the keyboard. Every Monday we have our music lesson. For Christmas we are learning how to play ‘Jingle Bells.’


We had lots of fun at the pantomime. The whole school travelled to St. Helen’s Theatre Royal to watch Snow White. We enjoyed clapping, singing and dancing along to the music. We all loved the 3D special effects. After the pantomime had finished, we were lucky enough to meet the actress who played Snow White! We had a great day!
