As part of our healthy eating project Year 2 made pizzas based on the eat well plate. Despite having much less cheese on them and been covered in fruit and vegetables everyone who visited our pizza cafe said how tasty they were. Even the teachers stole a slice or 2!

Year 2’s next writing challenge!

After a week of poetry, fighting knights, drinking potions and dining with kings Year 2 are about to  face their next writing challenge this week – writing adventure stories for the year 1 children based on Julia Donaldson’s book the stick man.

The children planned their stories today with writing beginning tomorrow!


A journey back in time!

Year 2 spent last week travelling back in time to find out about why many people light bonfires on the 5th November. As part of our famous people topic the children learnt about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot! Writing recounts, newspaper articles and descriptions we were all glad to land back in the twentieth century and escape the Tower of London!


The children spent the afternoon on Thursday investigating how different forces can change the shape of different materials! Pushing, squashing, stretching, bending we tried them all!

What a find!

The children were amazed when Grace brought in a huge wasps nests that she had found in her Grandad’s garden. The hexagon pattern made in nature amazed us all!

Material madness!

Year 2 have been going mad on materials, making, designing, sorting, testing and using them all! They ended the madness using Venn diagrams to put the classroom and its things in some kind of order!

The lost hat stories.

Year 2 have spent this week looking at different stories about lost hats. Using a story map they have created their own lost hat stories.

Getting to grips with grammar!

Year 2 spent some time this week searching for nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs in their writing. We collected them on post it notes and shared them, helping each other to make our writing more interesting!


Holiday hat disaster for Hamilton!

Year 2 had to come to Hamilton’s rescue on Thursday when he tore his umbrella hat. Paper, plastic or fabric which material would be most suitable for the job of patching up the tear? The children enjoyed finding out even if they did get a little bit wet!

KS1 trip to Eureka!
