Year 2

Summer 1- Equality: Are we there yet?

In this project will be exploring some courageous and influential people such as Martin Luther King Jnr, Malala, Michelle Obama, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst and many more individuals who have fought and continue to fight for equal rights. 

Week 4-commencing 10th May 

We have been recapping multiplication this week. We have been using the 'x' symbol and familiarising ourselves with the five times tables. We have also been exploring odds and evens this week as well! 


Fun fact we found out: did you know that when you times an odd number by 5, the answer is always odd and when you times an even number by five, the answer is always even!

This week we have learnt about Malala and how she stood up for girls to go to school. We have completed some research on finding places around the world where inequality is still happening. 

Week 2- Commencing 26th April

This week in RE we have been exploring forgiveness and why it is important to always forgive. We also explained ways we can show forgiveness. 

Year 2's Video to a Care Home.

Still image for this video
As it was Mental Health Awareness Week last week the children in Year 2 wanted to record a video to make others happy.
We are going to send the video to a local care home to cheer up the residents and we wanted to share it with all of you too!
We hope you enjoy our singing and dancing 😊

Our Autumn 2 Project is...

We are Engineers!


Thursday 10th November- Year 2 became Engineers! We had the wonderful Peter from Wonderstruck visit us and tell all about how Rockets fly into space. We saw many different experiments including Mrs Baldock getting a sledgehammer and hitting Peter whilst he lay on a bed of nails with piles of concrete on top of him!! We learnt about combustion and the Science of burning. We then made out rockets in pairs and watched them fly 50metres into the sky. Charlie and Teddie in 2.1 were the winners with their rocket flying the furthest. 

Friday 4th December-Year 2 have started their sketches for Surreal Art and they have also started their times tables learning this week!
