New EYFS Starters 2020/21

Year 2 Homepage



Welcome to Year 2! 

Proud Peacocks- Miss Birt, Miss Kirkham and Mrs Richards teach this class.

Wonderful Woodpeckers- Mrs Hurst and Mrs Simpson teach this class.

This page will give you information about what the children are learning at school.

Our topic this half term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures.


We have really enjoyed reading George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. Our teacher's have taught us how to do funny voices for the characters to make the story come to life! We particularly love creating voices for George's beastly Grandma! In our Guided Reading lessons we have carried out some shared reading in groups and have developed our understanding of the text by answering inference and deduction questions. We have made potions, followed instructions and written instructions for our own medicines. 


Having a messy topic means we have been having fun with paint and creating lovely artwork. We have been learning about primary and secondary colours using a colour wheel. We discovered how to make the secondary colours by mixing primary colours together and have also explored changing colour tones. We made different shades of blue by adding black and white to a primary blue. Look at out beautiful paintings below!


We have also carried out lots of exciting investigations in Science! We made careful predictions and observed changes over time. Now we are able to write up our science investigations with predictions, methods and conclusions. 


In Maths, we have been working so hard to learn different methods for addition and subtraction! We have worked practically with resources and have developed our ability to solve questions mentally. We know that we can choose our own methods when solving arithmetic questions because we need to work efficiently and confidently. We have practised drawing tens and ones, using number lines, using the column method and finding the difference. We are super confident Mathematicians now!
