Year 2

Class Teacher - Mrs Oke -

Teaching Assistant -  Miss Eastwood

Welcome to the Summer term!   We have an exciting term ahead with many interesting things planned! Check out the curriculum map above.

 Remember to bring your P.E kit every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  

 Reading continues to be a focus in the class, so please read at home each day and record in your reading record book.

We began our Geography unit by making a weather station using moving parts (from our D.T).  We will go on to look at extreme weather over the next few weeks. 

Welcome to the Autumn Term in Year 2 and 3

I love being back to school, especially when I am welcoming new pupils to the class!  I hope that you will all be very happy and will make lots of great progress this year. 

We will be having lots of fun in our learning this term, starting with a class trip to launch our class topic of travel and transport.  We will be going to see the Shuttleworth Collection on Thursday 8th September!  How exciting!  (Photos to follow!) 

As for each term, we will be continuing to focus on improving our reading, and I hope that you will listen to your child read at home regularly, as this is so important to improving reading!

We will be having PE from Tuesday - Thursday, so please ensure that your child has a labelled PE kit in school on these days.  

Year 2 will have a fruit snack provided each day, and year 3's can bring a fruit snack or cereal bar for snack.

Look out for your termly curriculum booklet which will be going home on Friday 9th September, as it has lots more information in it about the term.

If you have any questions throughout the term, please feel free to email me, or arrange an appointment.  




We have worked hard to complete a list poem all about 'Fire!'.  All of the children have worked so hard to write and present their poem.  We have added two poems to our 'WOW Wall'.

In art we have been using chalks to create a city scene set during the time of the Great Fire of London.

Carrying on with our theme of the Great Fire of London, we have set up a 'Pudding Lane Bakery' in our role play area.

We have really enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London and have concluded our learning by recreating the Great Fire itself (with Mr Dalton's help!)  

We have enjoyed learning all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot.  We especially liked the gruesome parts!  We have made 'Wanted' posters, written warning letters to Lord Mounteagle and have made firework pictures. We also enjoyed toast and marshmallows around the fire.

Today, Friday 24th September, we have been thinking about recycling.  We have sorted everyday items into recycling bins, heard a story about 'Eco Joe', and have reused materials to make Rapunzel's tower.

We have used a 'Marble Day' to launch our new 'Castles' topic.  We will be writing stories based on a book about Knights and dragons, and learning all about the Normans and the castles they built.  We have had fun using blocks to make our own castle.
