Year 2




Welcome to Year 2

Meet the team

Both classes in Year 2 have PE every Thursday. Reading and Spelling books are needed in school everyday. 

What have we done this term to make us feel Proud?


Year 2 have had a great spring term packed full of trips, in-school experiences and lots of fun.


The children have created their own bird feeders and have written a set of instructions to teach  others how to  create their own bird feeders.


Year 2 have created pieces of art linked to their learning of the Great fire of London. They used collage and different paint techniques to build up their art to recreate the flames.



What we have been learning about this term?

Spring term has been another fun filled term for Year 2. From a visit from Neil Armstrong to making their very own bird feeders and their fortnightly forest school sessions, the children have really got stuck into their learning. 

The term was kick started with their mini-adventure: The Great Fire of London. The children became great historians to discover the truth behind where, when and how the great fire began. They then retold the significant events in a diary entry, just like the famous Samual Pepys. 

Their forest school sessions linked to this as children had the opportunity to put their fire skills to the test. They worked extremely hard in small groups to build fire structures and even used the flint to make their own sparks. 

Following on from this, the children were engaged and enthusiastic to learn about animal and human life cycles. They applied all their amazing knowledge on the Life cycle of a butterfly to help them create their very own explanation texts. 


Our weekly timetable

Black County Museum 


Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Black Country Museum. The children got to explore the different houses, shops and even got to ride on the red, old bus!


It is also safe to say that the children were very grateful that they no longer have to go outside to use the toilet in the houses we live in today! 


The focus of our trip was to investigate how housing has changed through time. Year 2 began by looking at the modern houses we see today including: flats, bungalows, detached houses, semi-detached houses and terraced house. We then used our learning from the Black Country Museum to see if there were any similarities and difference with housing throughout the 20th century.  To end, the children then studied housing as far back as 1066. They looked at the features of a Motte and Bailey castle and a Stone Keep Castle. 


The lovely people from the Black Country Museum even visited us in school. They helped us to create our own buildings using a variety of different materials. The children were very creative and used their problem solving skills to help make sure their buildings were fit for purpose. 

Sutton Park 


During our first week in Year 2, the children went to Sutton Park as part of their habitats topic. Whilst here, they carried out observations in a range of habitats including short grass, long grass and woodlands. They were great scientist as they recorded, presented and analysed their results to help them understand which animals could be found in each habitat. 


Inspired by their work, the children then helped Mr Bamber to create their very own bug hotel to try and help encourage more wildlife into our school grounds. They showed great team work and enthusiasm with this project.
