All the children and parents did a fantastic job creating these magnificent collages during our Inspire afternoon in the Spring term. Lots of budding artists! 

Working Collaboratively

Year 6 came into Year 2 in the run up to Easter to ask them a series of questions in preparation for their DT project. The year 2 children were more than happy to support. 

Sneeze Zone

The children loved investigating how far sneezes travel and the importance of covering our mouths when we sneeze. They learnt that covering their mouths stops the spread of germs and learnt the importance of washing their hands. A great time to learn about the 2m distance on the 4th anniversary of the UK lockdown. 


The children have loved participating in their series of art lessons this term focusing on flowers and the work of Vincent Van Gogh. This week, the children created mono prints. I am sure you will agree they look amazing! 

Trip to the church

Year 2 went on a local walk to the church on Wednesday 13th March to apply their learning of christenings. It was lovely for the children to see where christenings take place and even look in St Andrew's book to see who was christened there. 

Happy Mother's Day

Thank you to all the mums of the children in Year 2. The children have worked hard this week to show you just how special you are to them. They all made a pot in which they planted a sunflower and all made beautiful home made cards. We hope you have a special day whatever you may be doing. 

Happy World Book Day 2024

What a great selection of characters in class today! It was lovely hearing all about the children's favourite characters and taking part in various reading activities. Thank you to all the parents for your support with costumes. 

Sketching Skills

Year 2 applied their understanding of shading to sketch some still life in the form of flowers. The classroom was left smelling beautiful! 

Alongside 'Get Ahead' Sports Partnership, the children had the opportunity to use Sphero balls which are controlled using a variety of instructions on an iPad. The coaches as well as myself were very impressed with how well they controlled the balls and followed coaches instructions. 

Snow is falling...

Over the past couple of weeks, the children in year 2 have been focusing on poetry and identifying different features including work on rhyming couplets. As the snow was falling outside, the class worked together to create a collaborative piece in preparation for their independent work. I am sure you will be just as proud as I was for their excellent team work. 


Snowflakes falling from the sky,

Covering everything as they fly.

Sparkling like diamonds in the light,

Turning the world completely white. 


Joyful children playing in the snow,

Leaving footprints as they go.

Sounds of laughter fill the air,

As the soft snow falls on my hair.

'The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration' - Claude Monet

With music from Paris softly drifting around the classroom, the children felt inspired to follow the work of Claude Monet and complete a piece of his artwork. The children used small brushstrokes often used and were mindful to use similar colours and techniques. 

We will rock you!

The children in Year 2 have really got into the swing of their music lessons this term. With a focus on rock music, the children have appraised the style of music as well as listened to a variety of songs including Queen. Children worked towards learning the lyrics to a song 'I wanna play in a band' and even played a musical instrument alongside. Well done Year 2!
