Nurturing Foundations, Flourishing With God


Year 2

2020 -2021

Year 2 Yellow Class have so enjoyed designing and making their fortresses. We have investigated castle features and used this to answer our design brief on creating a strong house for the 3 Little Pigs to stay safe from the Big Bad Wolf!
We have been enjoying our learning in buddy groups and workshops. We have been sharing our skills and helping each other. It really does make learning fun and enjoyable.
Year 2 have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been investigating properties and sorting shapes into groups as well as making repeating patterns.
Year 2 have really enjoyed being back in their pods at school again and seeing all of their friends. We have had a busy week with lots of fun active learning.    

'Well done to the children in Year 2 for dressing up and looking so fabulous.'


We got our bodies really working this afternoon doing a lot of heart raising activities, each lasting 30 seconds.

Our partners counted how many we did each time. We then had some fun pushing a squashy ball away from us and trying to get as far down the measuring line as we could.


For Friendship Week we are learning more about making the right choices and to recognise the difference between right and wrong. Here we are doing an activity about this but also learning to be a good friend. We are really listening to our partner and when we talk to each other, we show our respect by looking at them and nodding and smiling.
Thank you so much for dressing your children up as pirates today. We had such fun in class and the children loved their learning, as you can see from the photos.
Please could you write, Yellow Class enjoyed showing off their odd socks in class today. We have been thinking a lot about friendship and celebrating difference.
On Friday, Blue class spent their PSHE lesson thinking about having kind hearts. In order to show our kind hearts we wrote about each other, explaining why we like our friends and what we admire about them. Here is some of our reactions to what our friends wrote. Some of the children even wrote about Miss Theoff!
Yellow Class really enjoyed their Science this week investigating melting materials and observing the changes. We all thought it was either the ice cream or butter that would be the first to melt. We really liked watching the chocolate melt too!
Here we are in Yellow Class learning how to count in 3's in Maths. We have found a pattern and can predict what comes next going up to 36 and beyond!
The children in Yellow Class had so much fun exploring the messy mixtures today. We thought of some great vocabulary to describe the properties of all the different gooey mess and muck!
