Super Schools!

Year 2 had a fantastic time today meeting Grant Fielder, completing some exercises and watching an amazing demonstration from Grant.

2w created a movie trailer to show how much they enjoyed the day. See if you can spot Mrs Luxon’s daredevil experience!

The children had a go at writing Kenning style poems about different animals. Some were brave enough to read them to the class. Can you guess which animals they are describing?

“Night howler, meat muncher, prey pouncer, greedy guzzler”

“Tree leaper, pond lover, spotty looker, green colour, beautiful bouncer”

“Electric shooter, water gulper, green gobbler, ugly starer, long monster, smooth feeler, tooth pointer, sea crawler”

We started looking at poetry that focussed on African animals and wrote our own in the style of Grace Nicolson’s ‘Alligator’. We then read them to the class.


This half term the children have learned about Africa. The children have retold Tinga Tinga tales, created Ting Tinga art and started to plan their own Tinga Tinga tales such as ‘Why Leopard has spots’.

2W visit the pond!

Today (14/3/17)  2W visited the pond to look at the habitat and see which creatures we might find. We had an amazing time and found a newt, tadpole and huge toad!

We would like to welcome everyone back and wish you all a very Happy New Year. So far we have been looking into the Lighthouse Keeper’s stories such as ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We have tried planning and writing our own stories, evaluating lunchboxes and had a go at acting different parts of the stories.

The video below is a collection of our freeze frame pictures from our drama.

We have also started looking at exercise and healthy living in Science. Take a look at the dramatic trailer for our science lesson on Exercise…

2w have really enjoyed the first 3 weeks of our new P.E. Scheme, Real P.E.

Autumn Term 2016

Christmas Performances

All of the staff in Year 2 would like to congratulate the children on their fantastic Christmas Performances this week. They produced some fantastic singing and acting. We would all like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

English Autumn 2

The children have done a lot of acting this half term. They have acted out alternative versions of some very well know Traditional Tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.


2W visited 3WT and 3G to show them their sock monsters. We were then lucky enough to be shown the presentations they have created in relation to Roald Dahls ‘The Twits’. 2W enjoyed seeing their work and looking forward to having a go themselves….they also look forward to another visit to Year 3!

Today we made sock monsters! We had to plan our monsters, make them (with some help!) and then evaluate our creations. In 2W we learnt how important it is to follow our plans to ensure our finish products look how we want them to. Take a look at some pictures of what we did and some creations.

We have completed a few science investigations. We investigated what happens when we put an egg in vinegar, how to make an egg float and which materials dissolve in water.

 “Sand doesn’t dissolve because it soaks up the water. Salt does. Dissolving means it becomes part of the water”.

“When we drop an egg from a small height (20cm) it cracks. After the egg was in vinegar for a little while (24hours) and then dropped it bounces!”

“When you put an egg in water it sinks. When we put salt in the egg floats”

Tuesday 27th September

Today we investigated what would happen if we put skittles around the edge of a white plate and added a small amount of warm water……see what happens!
