Year Two


  Welcome to Year 2's Page!


We are Year 2, led by Miss Fletcher and Mrs Murphy.

This academic year we have done lots of exciting things. Take a look at some of these exciting things:


Muck Mess and Mixtures topic:

We learnt about different artists and how they created their work. We got our hands very messy to create a range of artwork. In English we learnt how to write short stories and instructions. In Maths we continued to develop our mental maths skills through a range of fun activities.


Great Fire of London:

We found out all about the Great Fire of London. We looked at how and where the fire started and why it had spread so quickly. In English we looked at writing letters, newspaper reports and diary entrances. In Maths we learnt how to use the bar model method for multiplication and division.


Castles and Turrets:

Last term our new topic was Castles and Turrets. We looked at the development of castles overtime and how castles would have defended themselves. In English we learnt about what a traditional tale is and how to write a traditional tale. In Maths we learnt all about money.



This term our new topic is Pirates. In this topic we will look at the lives of significant individuals (sea explorers) and how they have influenced today. In English we will look at non-chronological reports and learn skills needed to write a report. In Maths we will use the bar model method to work out fractions.



We have lots of fun learning in class. Take a look at our photos...
