W/B: 14/09/2020 - Fun and games in week two!

We have had so much fun this week. We have had a great time writing about our feelings monsters and we have discussed lots of different types of stories that we enjoy. P.E. was amazing! We enjoyed the sunshine while learning how to run relay races.


W/B: 07/09/2020 - Our first week!

We have all had a lovely first week and all of the Year 2 grown-ups have been really impressed with how kind, caring and safe the children have been. We have been learning about responsibility and how to take care of our classroom and other areas of the school. 

We had a great time exploring our outdoor area again. The children really enjoyed playing with the resources they remembered from last year as well as having a look at some new additions.

Our first week's topic sessions explored what made Pablo Picasso unique and what sort of techniques he used in his artwork. We tried to emulate his style by using bright, contrasting colours and drawing our faces from lots of different angles. The concentration was wonderful but the results were even better!

Our First Challenge

The Year 2 team have set a challenge for the children who are going to be in this class. We want to see a picture of all of you doing something you really enjoy over the holidays. This could be going on a walk, riding your bike or jumping on the trampoline. Take a nice picture and send it in and we will post the responses below.

Challenge responses:

Theo has enjoyed being out and about this summer. He has also enjoyed spending time at home playing with his toys. This LEGO Batmobile looks like so much fun!


Anna had a great time doing lots of exciting things this summer. I'm sure these toasted marshmallows were delicious! Well done Anna.

Poppy has been busy at home making slime. It looks very squishy and sticky, I'd love to know how to make some as lovely and pink as that. Well done, Poppy.


Zion has been racing around on his motorbike whilst he's been at home. This looks like it takes a lot of skill and balance. Well done, Zion.
