Welcome to Year 2
Here you will find an overview of all the exciting learning experiences in Year 2. In Year 2 we inspire and nurture our children through fun and engaging opportunities. We make the most of our outdoor environment by enjoying hands-on experiences to help the children to reach their full potential. In this unique setting we provide challenges to increase independence and resilience for their future. Aiming to help our children flourish and develop a healthy growth mind-set, we have many Eureka moments!
We hope you enjoy finding out about our fantastic learning!
Mrs Ridley and Miss O’Dowd are our teachers. Mrs Cook and Mrs Reed-Morris are our teaching assistants.

Year 2 started the week building towers with spaghetti and marshmallows! This was linked to our story ‘What We’ll Build’, by Oliver Jeffers. This week we have also been thinking about building things in different ways such as friendships and bonds between families and different people. The children have had lots of fun catching up with their friends and have produced some lovely learning. Well done Year 2 we are very proud you all.
Year 2 had a lovely afternoon on Friday doing Christmas crafts. We listened to Christmas music whilst decorating baubles, Christmas trees and Santas. Lots of glittery fun was had by all!
Year 2 have enjoyed lots of activities for Children in Need! We have joined in with Joe Wicks every morning this week giving us lots of energy to start the day. This morning we did a scavenger hunt outside to find Acts of Kindness cards which we then displayed on a giant Pudsey we had coloured in. We then made our own Acts of Kindness cards to take home. After lunch we decorated biscuits and made Children in Need bookmarks.
For Children in Need today Year 2 were taking notice of our surroundings. We enjoyed a lovely Autumn walk in the school grounds. We used our senses by listening, touching, smelling and hearing different things along the way and recorded what we discovered on sheets. We did some lovely writing about our walk and also made a leaf animal!
We had a lovely afternoon learning about Remembrance Day and made our own poppies.
For Halloween we made peg puppets, spooky split pin models and we decorated biscuits. We also watched Room on the Broom and listened to the story Christopher Pumpkin.
