Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Page

Hello and welcome to the Year 2 page.


The Year 2 teachers are Miss Morrow (Class 2M) and Mrs Davison (Class 2D).

We are both very excited about this year as there are lots of great projects, fun learning and

experiences to be had.

Each term we will add to the website details of the projects we are covering so you can keep up to date with what the children are learning. We will also update the page with learning experiences as they happen so you see what we have been up to. A Curriculum newsletter is sent out at the start of each term which has these details too.


Important Information and Dates.

Spelling Test day is Monday.

Times Table Test day is Friday.

We will send a message home about the spellings and the x table test on a Tuesday.

Homework Book Day is every third Wednesday.

PE days are Tuesday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor).

Please send in questions or comments using the email addresses that have been sent out at the start of the year. A member of the Year 2 team will be available on the gate at the start and the end of the day for you to pass on any last minute messages.

Celebration of Learning - Animals, Art and Africa

Hello Parents and Carers

Here you will find our Gallery for the Celebration of Learning for our latest project, Animals, Art and Africa. We have worked hard on a range of art, design and craft pieces of work and we are very proud of what we have achieved. Please look through the slides with your child as they will be able to tell you what they did, the inspiration they had and the materials that they used.

Thank you,

The Year 2 Team

Grimsby Town FC Fun Football Session

This week, we have learnt how to tie dye, and have made our own t-shirts. They look amazing, and we love them!

You will find our summer term RSE learning here.

We have used software to compose music this afternoon.

We have been using our maths learning about position and direction to produce algorithms today. Our algorithms needed to make our 'robots' move around the playground.

We have practised plaiting to make a bracelet, similar to the weaving that is used to make jewellery in parts of Africa.

Today, we learnt about Sukkahs and worked together to build our own in our wildlife garden.

We have been learning about food chains this week.

This week we have been learning about habitats and minibeasts. We went on a minibeast hunt and found lots of different types of minibeast in the many different micro-habitats we have on our school grounds. It was lots of fun!

We searched the school grounds to find clues about our new project today. We can't wait to learn more about Animals, Art and Africa!

We have had a lovely time using different painting techniques to celebrate spring.

We have been working hard to design and make lunar buggies that Neil Armstrong could have used when he went to the moon. We also wrote very detailed explanation texts about them.

We had a great time completing Mr Men and Little Miss activities to celebrate their 50th anniversary on World Book Day.

Our home learning.

We were so excited to be in the snow today! We went on a welly walk and it snowed while we were outside! It was very cold when it landed on our noses.

Today we've been finding out how exercise affects our body. We tried running, star jumps and press ups. They made our hearts beat very fast!

At school, we have been performing some winter poems too.

Happy Holidays

We have been very busy getting ready for Christmas, by making a Christmas card with a moving part.

We have made dreamcatchers. We had to practise threading wool, tying knots, threading beads and curling paper.

Year 2 have been acting as scientists to find out which would be the best material for a bag to be made out of. They had to carefully test to see which was the most waterproof, and they were very careful to make sure they carried out a fair test.

Year 2 have been decorating the space with poppies for our learning about Remembrance Day.

This week we have enjoyed learning about Harvest Festivals. We thought carefully about what we were thankful for, before making apples to hang on our new tree.

What a busy day we've had planting our bulbs for the Edina Trust!

It's taken a lot of practice, but look how good we've become at balancing! Now we know that to balance we need to be still and hold our body tight and stiff. We made some really interesting shapes with our bodies too.

We have been busy looking after our seeds. We needed to give them soil, air, light and water (but not too much!) so that they would grow to be healthy plants. We did such a great job that we now have lots of really tall bean plants.

We have been learning about where we are in the world. We looked at world maps, maps of the UK, maps of England, a map of Lincolnshire and a map of Louth. We were even able to find our school!

In maths, we are developing our understanding of number and learning how to add larger numbers.

Year 2 have been busy trying out some dreamtime art to decorate a meerkat, like the meerkat Sunny in our story Meekat Mail.

We have been enjoying learning about plants. We had a nature walk and learnt about trees through our observational drawings. We have also set up an investigation which has involved us planting seeds to find out under which conditions they grow the best. We can't wait to collect our results!

Today we collected our luggage, passports and boarding passes ready to board a flight from Kidgate International Airport. From here we experienced a flight take off and landing, and we are now ready to begin our learning adventure.
