Whats been happeningYear 2

English – The Jolly Postman

Children loved exploring The Jolly Postman book as part of our English unit on diary entries. After reading the story as a whole class, they spent some time carefully taking the letters out of the envelopes inside the book to enjoy reading with a partner. It was lovely to see how engaged they were!

Topic – High Street Experience

We have enjoyed learning all about the High Street and to celebrate finishing our topic, we opened a 2.1 and 2.2 High Street. First, children got into small groups and decided what their shop would be and which items they would sell. After, they designed their items and decided how much they were going to cost. The best part was when the High Street opened and children got to visit each other’s shops. They loved playing the roles of shopper and shopkeeper!

Science – Fruit Dissection – Year 2

Year 2 loved dissecting different fruit to learn about seeds. We carefully used tweezers to remove the seeds and then used a magnifying class for a closer inspection. It was so much fun!

Science – Bean Plant Measuring – Year 2

We have been amazed to see how much our bean plants have grown over the past two weeks. We are using rulers to accurately measure the stem and making sure that we position our plants in the sunlight during the day. We also know it’s important to give our plants water as this helps them to grow too!

Science – Parts of a Tree – Year 2

This week, children learnt about the different parts of a tree (including trunk, branches, twigs, leaves and crown). We discussed the similarities and differences between plants and trees and then had a go at making a collage of a tree. We loved combining Science with Art!

Art – Still Life Drawing – Year 2

In Art, we have been learning how to draw plants in a realistic way and have done some observational drawings. So far, we have used sketching pencils and thought carefully about our pencil technique to ensure accurate lines and shapes. We are looking forward to using charcoal and watercolours in the coming weeks to add more life to our drawings.


Year 2

Shoe Boxes

We’ve been inspired by illustrator Lauren Child to make our own fairy tale boxes in a collage style. It’s been lots of fun creating our rooms!


Year 2


We have enjoyed our geography topic learning all about the UK. We used atlases to find countries, capitals and other cities and created our own maps too.


Year 2


As part of our Science learning, year 2 have grouped and sorted things they found on a plant hunt. We also grew our own beans, observing how they changed over time.
