Music in Y2
The children have been working with Mr. O from Music Hands to compose digital music. You can hear some of their music by clicking here.
The children have been learning about the Chinese New Year. This year is the Year of the Monkey. We found some Monkey Muffins in the Baking Book and Mrs Stephenson and Miss Relf kindly helped the children who have birthdays in January, February and March to make some for their classmates.
They read the recipe and followed each step carefully. They used scales to measure the amounts of ingredients needed. They used different techniques such as ‘rubbing in’ and ‘stirring’. You’ll see from the photos that they had a great time.
Everyone enjoyed eating the muffins!
Year 2 Class Assembly
The children entertained the school and their parents and grandparents when they performed Little Red Riding Hood.
They narrated perfectly, sang beautifully and the actors were all stars!
After the performance, Mrs Smith asked them for some adjectives to describe how they thought it had gone.
Here they are:
Excellent! Super! Fabulous! Awesome! Spectacular! Happy!
Outstanding! Scary! Perfect! Superb! Marvellous! Great! Fantastic!
And she couldn’t disagree with any of them!
The class had a super day at the OpenZone!
They used Lego Wedo to construct a crocodile and then program it to snap its jaws shut!
They also used iPads to program Bluebots. They learned a new word - debug - ask them what it means!
The children have been reading a book called ‘The Patchwork Quilt’ by Penny Ives. The Granny in the story had been reusing old material to make a patchwork quilt.
Then something exciting happened – we got a letter from Granny asking for our help. She wanted a special quilt for her granddaughter’s 12th birthday. Her letter explained exactly what she wanted.
Four children did really well and Granny sent them a box of Maltesers each!
The children in Year 2 who have birthdays in November and December worked with Mrs Stephenson and Miss Relf to make some Spooky Cookies!
As you’ll see in the photographs, they all had great fun!
Year 2 have been learning to write instructions.
They know that to do well you need:
They made a chocolate spread sandwich and, with the help of Mrs Reed, a cheese and tomato pizza!
They wrote instructions for both of these.
You can see from the photos that they had a fantastic time!
World Maths Day
On World Maths Day, Year 4/5 and Year 2 worked together with the Maths Puzzle Challenge Games.
The leadership qualities in the children from Year 4/5 were a pleasure to see.
There was kindness, caring, sharing, explaining, laughing and chatting!
We hope you enjoy the photos!
Babies and Toddlers
Reuben (who is Amelia’s baby brother) and Evie (who is the baby sister of Owen in Y6), came to visit Year 2 during their science lesson. The children in Year 2 confidently asked lots of questions!
They learned a lot about babies and toddlers:
We hope you like the photographs!
The children in Year 2 having been reading ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson.
As a special treat, the children who have birthdays in September and October followed a recipe to make Gruffalo Crumble for all of their classmates.
All of the class enjoyed the Gruffalo Crumble with ice cream!
They have been learning about adjectives and they were quick to think of some to describe their treat!
Crunchy! Lush! Sweet! Really nice!
Someone even said, ‘It was better than Mince and Dumplings!’
Enjoy the photographs!

Squashy Boxes to practise their number bonds for 10!
