Update - Friday 19th April 2024


Year 2 has had a busy first week back!


They were introduced to some brand-new topic words for our History driver topic - Magnificent Monarchs. They had to work in teams to sort out words to their definitions. They saw words such as monarch, reign, hierarchy, AD, century and timeline.




For English, we are writing character descriptions for a theatre programme. We are focussing on Matilda! To start, we enjoyed watching 'Matilda: The Musical.' We then worked on understanding each character and what makes them special. We thought about their personality, appearance, likes, and dislikes. To expand our vocabulary, we looked at verbs and adverbs to use within our descriptive sentences.  




Update - Thursday 28th March 2024


This week, we came to the end of our text ‘The Man on the Moon’. We wrote a diary entry, pretending to be an alien the day we met Bob the astronaut. We were challenged to include prepositions, suffixes and subordinating conjunctions to impress Bob with how well aliens know English. 


In maths, we have now completed our unit on mass, capacity and temperature. We have used our knowledge of skip counting to help us read scales on ruler, weighing scales and thermometers.


As we have come to the end of our ‘Plant Survival’ learning in science, we have learnt so much about how plants grow and what they need to be healthy. We looked back at all of our previous learning to answer some quiz questions.

Update - Friday 22nd March 2024


In DT, we finished our innovative project of building our beach huts! We used a range of materials and colours to make our huts attractive. We had to ensure that our beach huts met the design criteria, especially that they were strong. In the end, we evaluated our work and considered what went well and what we would try to do differently if we were to do it again.


We considered a healthy diet in PSHE by reviewing our previous learning about food groups. We were challenged to design healthy snacks and explain how we know they are healthy. We thought carefully about why eating healthy snacks is important and what it does for our bodies, especially when growing.



Update - Friday 15th March 2024


This week, we have continued to watch our different plants grow, including our grass samples, which we keep in different conditions. Our bean and pea seeds have finally started germinating. This has shown us that different seeds take different lengths to start growing.


In DT, we are coming to the end of our spring unit, ‘Beach Huts’. We have successfully sawed all of the required pieces out of wood and used our knowledge of joining and strengthening techniques to build the 3D structure. We cannot wait to show you what they look like when finished!


In geography, we were challenged to create our coastal towns by designing a map and key to describe and locate what there would be. We had to think carefully about including an RNLI station so people would be safe and various tourist attractions so people would come to visit.

Update - Friday 8th March 2024


In health and wellbeing, the children have been thinking about what it means to be healthy. We have thought about what we can do to stay healthy, like exercise, brush our teeth, and drink water. We also discussed why medicine is important and the different types we might need. We reminded ourselves about taking medicine with an adult and only when we are poorly.


In art, we have now come to the end of our ‘Flower Heads’ unit and have completed our innovative challenge to make our own flower-inspired piece out of clay. This was carried out over several weeks, and after leaving to dry, the children were able to paint their final pieces with bright colours while considering patterns.



In science, we continue to watch our cress plants grow while looking at different types of seeds. Each class has planted its own bean and pea plants to observe how long these take to grow and whether different conditions are needed for the plants to grow healthy. We have also taken grass samples and are investigating what happens when there is not enough sunlight or water over time.




Update - Friday 1st March 2024


Year 2 has been so busy getting stuck into their new learning units.


This week we have continued, in English, looking at our text ‘The Beast Feast’ and we have written letters to Beast persuading him not to cook Dinner for his friends. We have looked at how apostrophes can be used to contract words and show possession.

Celebrating Science Week has been so much fun. We did a variety of investigations and had a go at applying our science knowledge to predict what might happen. Each class has also planted their seeds, which we will watch grow over the next few weeks, thinking carefully about what a plant needs to grow healthy.

In art, we had a go at creating own on flower art from clay, being inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s naturalist style. So far, we have shaped our clay by rolling, pinching and squashing. Once cry we will paint them to make it bright and create patterns.

Update - Friday 23rd February 2024


Welcome back to Spring 2!

The children have settled back into routine and have loved beginning our new text in English ‘The Beast Feast”. This week, we have started reading the story and uncovered letters from Beast’s friends. We have thought about how the characters feel and what they might think at different story points. On Wednesday, we created our beasts to trick the others to save Dinner from being eaten.



In art, we have continued our unit on ‘Flower Heads’ and, this week, have studied the artist Yayoi Kusama. We have discovered her inspirations for her artwork and how she enjoys using colours and patterns to bring her natural pieces to life. We thought back to using our different skills to create shapes, textures and patterns and how Yayoi Kusama uses these in her work.



In geography, we took a trip into the past to look at the coastal town of Whitby and how it has changed over time. We looked closely at the buildings and shorelines and noticed that these have changed due to people and natural causes like erosion. The jobs of the people in Whitby were also different over 100 years ago, including shipbuilders and factory workers.

Update - Friday 9th February 2024


In English, I wrote a fact file about the Chinese New Year based on everything we have been learning about during the past three weeks.



In art, we used felt tips to explore colour and pattern. We coloured and sprayed our flowers with water to watch our patterns blend and grow.


Update - Friday 2nd February 2024


In geography this week, the children have spotted dangers at the beach.  They worked with a partner to identify all the potential dangers they could see.



In art this week, the children have been exploring texture.  They first covered the card in glue, then layered strips and small pieces of tissue paper over the glue.  After that, they used a paintbrush to create soft folds and wrinkles in the tissue, then continued to add more layers and left it to dry.



On Friday, the children enjoyed number day.  In the morning, they worked with a partner to complete several maths activities.


Update - Friday 19th January 2024


In geography this week, the children looked at erosion and how it can affect coastal areas. We experimented in our classrooms by creating two coastal boxes.  We filled the first box with sand and pimpled it high to represent the land.  We placed an object by the edge of the land to represent a home.  We then poured water into our coastal boxes and created waves to show how the water can erode.  We then repeated the experiment in our second box and used stones at the base of the sand.  We discussed why the coastal box with stones took longer to cause erosion. 




In DT this week, we started to use junior hacksaws to cut wood.  As a group, we cut out four pieces of wood. We then joined the corners together to make a rectangle.




In English, we looked at the difference between good and bad instructions.  We discussed how our instructions need to be clear and concise so that they can be followed more easily.  The teachers read out some wrong instructions, which resulted in everyone coming up with something different.  We then looked at a clearer set of instructions and found those easier to follow.

Update- Friday 12th January 2024


In DT this week, the children have been exploring strengthening a structure.  They learned how to enhance cards, fold cards and join cards together.  In small groups, they used this knowledge to make a beach.



In English, we have continued to learn about instructional language.  We looked at what noun phrases, verbs, adverbs and adjectives are to help us think about the instructions we can give.  On Friday, we role-played different verbs, and next week, we will try to guess what action is being done in the photographs.



During maths, we have continued to look at the use of money and solve various problems.

Update - Friday 6th January 2024


In maths, the children have been learning all coin and note denominations. They have then used this knowledge to answer problem-solving questions.

In English, we started our new unit based on the story of ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’. The children have used this text to explore instructional writing. The unit started with the children giving their teachers instructions on how to make a jam sandwich. The children realised if they did not give clear instructions, mistakes could be made.




For art, our unit started by looking at flower heads and exploring their different colours and shapes. The children then sketched and coloured different parts of a flower.




This week, we started our DT unit on beach houses. In the first lesson, the children explored different types of beach houses and labelled different parts of them.

Update - Friday 8th December 2023


Another very busy week in Year 2.  We had our first Dress rehearsal for our Nativity performance.  All went well and the children are really looking forward to performing in front of their parents and other family members.  Also, during the week, we finished our History, learning all about significant activists.  We especially focussed on the story of Malala Yousafzai and how she fought for the right of all girls in Pakistan to be educated.  In Art, the children completed our final Still Life artwork using watercolours and all our skills to mix the different hues to create the colours we wanted.  

Update - Friday 1st December 2023


It has been a rather busy week in Year 2.  We are fully immersed in our nativity rehearsals for "It a Baby".  All the children have been practising the songs and dances.  Soon, we will begin to start rehearsing in the hall.   In maths, we started a new topic on Shapes.  So far, we looked at recognising 2D and 3D shapes.  We have learnt how many sides and vertices each 2D shape should have.  This week, we focused on significant 'Activists' throughout history.  They were Rosa Parks,  William Wilberforce, Emmeline Pankhurst, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Malala Yousafzai.

Update - Friday 24th November 2023


Another busy week in Year 2.  In English, the children worked very hard to finish their version of a story following the format of The Bear and the Piano.  We had many stories ranging from The Dog and the Drum, The Fox and the Guitar, The Panda and the Harp.  The children used lots of adverbs to help with their descriptive writing.  In art this week all of Year 2 took part in a carousel of activities across all classrooms. They had 30 minutes in each classroom to draw, paint or use clay to sculpt still-life items displayed on the tables. We were all very impressed with their effort and designs. 

Update - Friday 17th November 2023


It was a busy week in Year 2, celebrating Children in Need by wearing odd socks and Interfaith Week.  In their RE lesson, the children discussed some of the main faiths from around the world and that everyone, no matter what faith, belongs on this earth.

Update - Friday 10th November 2023


This week in Year 2, we have been concentrating on our addition skills in maths.  We have been using Base Ten to help us understand what happens when we need to exchange 10 ones into a ten.  In History this week, we learnt all about Neil Armstrong.  We chose 6 key facts about his life. Here are some of our favourites:

  • His footsteps are still on the surface of the moon

  • When he first stepped on the moon he said “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!)

  • He was only 16 when he got his pilot license.

  • He spent 21 hours and 36 minutes on the moon.

Update - Friday 3rd November 2023


In year 2, we have started our new English topic.  It is based on the story of “The Bear and the Piano” by David Litchfield.  We have done our best to learn the story by heart. 


This week, we have learned all about Christopher Columbus and how he was the first European to discover the Americas.  He originally thought he was travelling to India but instead discovered the Americas.  In geography, we have looked closely at the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Update - Friday 20th October 2023


In year 2, this week, we finished off Black History Month by completing our final piece of writing on Mary Seacole.  We learnt how she bravely cared for wounded soldiers during the Crimea War and even went onto the Battlefield to look after them.  We finished our ‘Black History’ month by listening to the autobiography “Coming To England” by Floella Benjamin.   Check out “Read with me” to hear the story at home.

Update - Friday 13th October 2023


This week in geography, we have been learning all about the equator.  We now know where the equator is and what it is like to live near it.  We know that countries that sit above the equator are in the Northern Hemisphere.  And the countries below the equator are in the Southern Hemisphere.  

Update - Friday 6th October 2023


This week, the children in Y2 have started their new English unit.  The children will learn about Mary Seacole, ready for Black History Month.  We have been reading her biography and learning about her life in some of our lessons, putting events in her life into order.


Update - Friday 29th September 2023


In year 2, this week, we participated in a Science experience investigating the best way to clean the bacteria off our hands. We used cooking oil to represent the bacteria.  Test 1 used oil and water. Test 2 used oil, soap and cold water. Test 3 used oil, soap and warm water.  We discovered that soap and warm water were the best way to remove bacteria (oil).


In DT this week, we learned that cooking root vegetables and pulses changes their texture by making them softer.

Update - Monday 25th September 2023


Year 2 has had an exciting week this week.  On Thursday, a representative from Hampshire Fire Service came to speak to the children about fire safety.  The children learned some important messages about staying safe and what to do if a fire occurs.  




In DT this week, the children have also looked at Kitchen tools and how to use them.  We learned how to safely peel with a peeler, what knife to use to spread butter, what knife to use to slice food items into small pieces, and how to grate cheese with a grater safely.  The children did well.

Update- Friday 15th September 2023



In History this week, we learnt all about a local significant person. Jane Austin.  We learned about her life and why she was a significant person in history.  We looked at pictures of her and learnt that there is a statue of her in Basingstoke town centre.  We found out that she lived in a village near Basingstoke called Chawton.







In science, we have been learning about what a healthy, balanced diet consists of.  We learnt all about the main food groups and the eat well plate.  

Update - Thursday 14th September 2023


The children are all settling into their new classes and routines.  We have begun the first week by getting straight into our curriculum.   In English this term we have started to learn of by heart an alternative story to Little Red Riding Hood.  The children have been using drama and actions to learn the story ready for when they complete their own story.

Update 19th July 

Our last update of the academic year! We would like to say a huge well done to all our children in year 2 and thank you to all their grown-ups for the support they have shown. All the staff have immensely  enjoyed teaching this cohort and will be very sad to see them go. They have grown so much in confidence, not just as learners but as young people and we feel extremely proud of them. 

The excitement hasn’t stopped in the last week: in English, we were mortified to discover that Imagination Land had quit! Of course we have been using our new persuasive writing skills to compose letters to urge our beloved play area to return. 

In maths we have had lots of fun investigating the properties of 3D shapes by making them out of spaghetti! This taught us some valuable team work and resilience skills as the spaghetti proved to be very fragile!

Finally, we have been practising our production and had our first dress rehearsal in front of year 1 and year 3. We were very impressed with how the children dealt with this; they rose to the occasion and their performances went up to a new level! Well done year 2.



Update 3rd July 

It was a short week for us this week due to the INSET day on Monday. It was lovely to hear what the children had been up to on their day off- it seems Legoland was a popular choice!


At the beginning of the week, we completed the board games we have been making in history as part of our Magnificent Monarchs topic. We also wrote a letter at the end of the week, advising Prince William, how to be a good king. We used all our knowledge of the significant monarchs we have been learning about to inform our advice. 

Wednesday was a highlight because something very strange happened! All our colouring pencils quit! This was of course linked to our new English unit: The Day the Crayons Quit. We hope this lovely book will inspire some brilliant persuasive writing as we write letters to lure our beloved colours back to the classrooms. 

On Thursday it was another exciting day as we had Move Up afternoon. The children really enjoyed meeting their new teachers and visiting their new classrooms. We will continue to do some extra transition to help make the children feel as comfortable as possible about moving to the juniors. 

It goes without saying that we have also been continuing to work hard practising for our production of Pirates Versus Mermaids. Not long to go now! 

Update -Friday 24th June 2023


This week year 2 has been busy bees! 


In science, we have been learning about mechanisms, and we were able to continue on from last week by making another. We focused on sliders last week, so we focused on levers this week. 
We also had an exciting history lesson because we could create our own board game! We had to reflect on the knowledge we had built up on different monarchs and use this in the board game. We could pick from positive impacts, negative actions, and royal residences. 

Finally, we have been recapping fractions during maths, and there's no better way to recap than making fractions with different shapes and objects! We reminded ourselves of the numerator and denominator, parts and whole and the different types of fractions. This week we focused on halves and quarters. 

Update - Monday 19th June 2023


In our art, we have finished our poses and portraits work. We did this using an app on the iPad to take a photo of our partners. Having done this, we then drew them a royal adding regal clothing and backgrounds. 


Through our maths, we have continued with our work on measures and time recapping on how to measure different quantities using a range of scales. 


In history, we have been making our own historical board games using positive and negative impacts from the majestic monarchs we have been looking at with the aim that these impacts will help aid movement around the board. 


Continuing our work from last week in art, we have planned how to make our name tags. As part of this, we have thought about the colour of the threads we will use and which stitch would be best. We also thought about the embellishments we could add to our tags.

Update - Friday 9th June 2023


In history this week, we have enjoyed learning about some different monarchs for our history. We've learnt more about Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth I. As part of this, we have looked at how significant and influential they were and the laws and traditions we still have today from their actions. 


Through maths, we have been looking at weights. We have been exploring grams into kilograms and millilitres into litres. As part of this, we measured different amounts of water and explored the difference in the amounts when we added some together or poured some away. 


We have been working hard to practise our running stitch in DT, and once we were confident, we used this stitch to add some embellishments and fabric shapes to our designs.


We have completed our English unit on Matilda by writing lovely character descriptions of Miss Honey and Ms Trunchbull.

Update - Friday 19th May 2023


English - We've been looking at what verbs and adverbs are and how we use them. We have been exploring new and exciting vocab to link to our Matilda topic.


History - We have been looking at King Alfred the Great and his most significant achievements. We investigated what he did for our country and what impact he had on the timeline of our country and his concessional line - in class 9, we used a new strategy for our class to work in talking triangles where the children collaborated together to achieve the learning outcome.


DT - Following on from our Cath Kidston topic, we made our very own name tag today using the sewing techniques we will be using in the up and coming lessons.


Computing - We are looking at Stop motion and making our own animation using the spaceship for the background and gradually moving the objects to make them appear that they move.

Update - Monday 15th May 2023


In our maths lessons this week, we have been exploring the four operations in preparation for our SATs.


We continued to look at 'magnificent monarchs' through our history work this week. In this, we have looked at the era they reigned in and looked further into the chronological order these magnificent monarchs reigned.


In science, we have explored a range of food chains, thinking about which animal would go where and why. As part of this, we thought about the scientific terms: producer and consumer. We also discussed the habitats in which different animals live and how they are best suited to these habitats. 

Update - Friday 5th May 2023


In science, we have been planning, preparing and making their very own bug hotel. Each class have made one in the forest school area. We thought carefully about what materials we would use that best suited the animals that would be using it. We also thought about which materials would be best to use for the environment, thinking about discomposure etc 


In DT, we have been looking at Cath Kidston, further thinking about her links to London and how this inspires her designs with a more traditional style.


In preparation for the coronation, we have been planning for the coronation of our King - King Charles III. We have been making frogs to celebrate, as King Charles has a tree frog named after him, and making bunting. While making our bunting, we have been thinking about the designs which closely link to the king and the heritage of the United Kingdom.

Update  - Friday 28th April 2023


This week in art, we have begun to draw poses our partners are holding. We have learned to do this by drawing the basic bone structure first and then layering on the body shape and clothing.


In our science, we have been investigating the area around our school to find microhabitats and what animals we may find there. We looked at the conditions they provide, what animals are best suited to these microhabitats, and why.


In maths, we have been using our understanding of number to help us answer reasoning questions.

Update - Monday 24th April 2023


Through our art unit, Portraits and Poses, we have been analysing what features appear in the paintings and why they are so significant. For example, in a painting of Henry VIII, his facial expressions appear mean and cross. This is to elude the presence of his power and authority in his role as king and to warn off any invaders or those who choose to undermine him.


Linking to art, we are looking at magnificent monarchs throughout history. We are looking at King Charles III and his presence within the historical timeline of the past monarchs and their levels of powerful news.


In our DT, we are looking at the British designer Cath Kidston and her impact on our day-to-day fashion choices. We are looking at her use of dots, stripes and floral designs.


In our science, we are looking at microhabitats and the food chain, which we are revisiting from the previous term. We are planning to build a bug hotel at the end of the unit.

Update - Friday 23rd March 2023


This week in Year 2 we have been doing the following:


English -
In English, we have looked at how we write a diary and the key components needed to achieve this. We have written our apprentice piece. These have been in the form of a diary from the perspective of Bob - the man on the moon. We have used our past tense, conjunctions and possessive apostrophes. 


Maths -
We have been using the clocks to show time - paying close attention to the hour numbers and what they mean when we need to look at minutes and counting in 5's. We have linked this to previous fraction work of whole, halves and quarters. 


Science - 
Moving on from looking at the conditions plants need to grow, we are now comparing the conditions that grass needs to flourish. Are they the same or different, and why?


World Book Day - 
We have made bookmarks to keep in the new books we got from Waterstones today, drawing our own covers to our favourite books and a story scavenger hunt where we had to decipher the letters to form a well-known author at the end. 

Update - Friday 17th March 2023


We started a new book called The Man on the Moon. For our hook day, we had an invasion of welcomed quests who explored our year 2 classrooms. They left selfies and alien slimy snot over the classrooms! The children were very interested in finding out why they were there. What they wanted? Why have they come to our school and our year group? We will be writing a final piece as a diary entry from the aliens' perspective, so we have been exploring how to infer people's/aliens' emotions, thoughts and actions. 


We have been continually looking at the plants we planted last Friday and watching them grow. We are investigating the best conditions for them to grow by comparing some that are being watered and some that are not - then using this information to plot on our table of results. 

Update - Friday 10th March 2023


This week in year 2, we have been finishing our own masterpieces in art following on from the artist we learnt about last week.


We, first of all, painted them white to enhance the dramatic nature of the design. Then we painted them using our primary colours. Finally, once dry, we mirrored the artist's polka dot design and added different colour dots to the clay sculpture. 


In English, we were planning our final piece of letter writing to the Beast, thanking him for his invitation while using all the new skills we have learnt this term, such as apostrophe possession, er and est words, commas in lists and using 'but' or 'although' in our letter. 


In geography, again, we are coming to the end of our coastline topic. We had to recall all the key findings we have used over the past few weeks and implement them within our final innovation piece. 


In maths, we ended our fractions topic and are now exploring measure - how and why we use it, what we measure, and the accurate ways to measure. 

Update - Friday 3rd March 2023


In our geography, we have travelled back in time to when Captain James cook was alive and sailing the seas. We imagined we were him and what it was like to travel the sea, mapping using the stars and our connections to Whitby. We used our investigating skills to ask fascinating questions.


In art, we made the start of our flowers sculptures based on a famous Artist  Yayoi kasama

And her love of polka dots. Next week we will be adding colours and pops of polka.


In English we have been looking at possessive apostrophes and when to use them. We have been looking

Update  - Friday 24th February 2023


Art: Using a range of techniques to see how we can transform primary colours into secondary colours using food dye and a coffee filter. We pressed in the primary colours first to watch them bleed together to form secondary colours.


DT: We put the finishing touches to our beach huts, we have spent the past few weeks working as a team to build them, looking at the strengths we would need to support them in all kinds of weather and what the necessities are for a beach hut. This has included the materials we would need to make them.


Science: We are beginning to look at plants and germination. We will be exploring this further in the coming weeks by making our own diagrams of this.


English: We are enjoying our new unit based on the Beast Feast book. We have made our own beasts this week and used adjectives and contracted forms to build descriptions and sentences surrounding what they like and do not like.



Updated - Friday 9th February 2023


This week in year 2, we have been listening to the difference in clear and specific instructions on how to draw an alien linking this to our final piece of how to wash our toys.


We have used different techniques in art to produce a flower and add texture to our pieces.


We have been building upon our multiplication skills in the 2, 5 and 10 times tables in maths.


In science, we have been looking at the effect of water on different materials so Miss Cryer can make her own shopping bag to help protect her belongings from the rain.

Update - Thursday 26th January 2023


This week, in year 2 we have been exploring different ways to produce a flower using a paper plate and clay. We used a spiral technique to produce our paper plates flowers and rolling tools to flatten out the clay and use the spiral technique again to make the clay flower.


In geography, we were drawing on the skills we have previously learned to investigate Whitby and where it's human and psyical features are on a map. We used  the symbols in the key to help us locate its features.


In English, we have started a new topic and our focus for this is instructions. On Monday, the children got to use intstructions on how to make a jam sandwich - the teachers got a bit messy in doing this! From this we spoke about  using clear and precise instructions to actually make the sandwich and how they needed to be in chronological order with imperative adverbials. This was linked nicely when the children had to do their apprentice piece on Thursday on how to make a ham sandwich.


Update - Thursday 19th January 2023


In D.T this week, we have been using the skills that we have learnt over the past few weeks to building a wooden frame. We have used our prior knowledge to think about what materials to use and how we can make our frames more stable. We used saws to make our framesas well as bench clamps to hold the wood still when we were cutting it. We also used our measuring skills to accurately measure and cut the correct lengths for the frame. 


In Geography today, we looked at erosion and what that means for our coastlines. We wanted to find out more about erosion and the effects of the sea on our cliffs, so we partook in an experiment using the water for sea and the sand for our cliffs. 

We worked with our partners and made the cliff edge with the sand and used straws the mimic the harsh sea crashing against the cliffs in extreme weather conditions.  


In science, we used our detective skills identify objects around the classrooms that are made from one material and those that are made from more such as the classroom doors.


In art, we were looking at a range of different artists and the elements they use in their work to show colour, texture, pattern, and size and scale. The tables were set up with different activities we focus upon these key areas and linked them to the appropriate photos.

Update - Friday 13th January 2023


In maths we used our investigating skills to fill in the missing Tetris symbol on a 100 square.

In art we used a range of different techniques to show the imprint of a flower using play dough, making our own design on a square and printing using paint and finally cutting a template of a flower onto coloured card to arrange a design in our art books.

In geography we had a beach day we used a carousal of activities including:

  • VR to emerge ourselves in the experience of being at the beach and coast.
  • Smelling table where we used bowls to smell and guess what was in them then draw and label using nouns and adjectives to describe what they can smell.
  • Touch a range of things we would see at the beach then linking to science what properties it has.
  • Moulding sand to make sculptures.
  • Laptop station to play an arcade game of Tetris which we find at the pier.

Update - Friday 6th January 2023


This week in year 2, we have been using our computing skills to log onto bug club and navigate our way around the new and exciting books. 


In geography, we have been looking at the different continents of the world and where they belong on the world map. 


In art, we were looking very closely at flowers, petals and stems using our new skills we have learnt over the last few weeks.
