Year 2 have been classifying different things into 3 groups for their Science learning in ‘Living Things and their Habitats.’ We used hula hoops to create 3 different groups.



Never Alive

We put the post it notes with our ideas into the correct group

My Volcano

First I got some paper and screwed it up so I put pieces to pile up the glue on it. We needed a hair dryer to let the glue dry. When it was dry I painted it grey and brown and I painted lava bits coming down. Next I put sand on it and I went outside to collect some mini trees and a toy tree and put some playdough on it. I hope you like it.

World Book Day

Year 2 have been celebrating World Book Day today and have been inspired by our class author, Julia Donaldson. How many characters can you spot in our picture? We have completed lots of activities, including making a talking book, changing the expression and volume in our voices.



Year 2 have been working on structures in DT based on their shape work in Maths. They have been building their own versions of old St Paul’s which burned down during the Great Fire of London. The bonus is we get to eat the marshmallows after!


This week in Maths we have been learning how to divide. We used lots of different apparatus to help us with this. We looked at number families and the relationship they have with each other, this helps us when problem solving.


Science and halloween

On Friday 27th October, Year 2 got to come to school dressed in our Halloween costumes, we all looked very scary. We also got to decorate a biscuit, then we ate them and they were delicious!

In the afternoon we did Science experiments. We mixed different powders with water to see what happened, we used salt, flour and soda powder to see what reactions we had. We predicted what we thought would happen with each one first, then did the experiment and wrote down our results.

We had lots of fun and learnt lots!

Horton Mill Visit

On Thursday 19th October we had a visit from the Year 2 Horton Mill class and we loved it. It gave us all the chance to do some fun activities and make some new friends.

In the morning we had a sports coach come in and we did some fun ball activities. We had to work in teams to complete lots of different challenges. In the afternoon we paired up with someone from Horton Mill so we could find out all about each other and fill in our ‘All About Us’ work sheets.

We really enjoyed it and cannot wait to see our new friends again!


On Monday 9th October Year 2 went on the Gruffalo Trail at Chadderton Park.

We had three tasks we had to do throughout the day. Our first task was to make a picture of the Gruffalo using things we could find in the park, like leaves, twigs and flowers.

Next we had to make a den like the log pile house the snake lives in, we used string and plastic sheets to make our dens.

For the last activity we were blindfolded and had to make our way round a track with the help of our friend. Once all the tasks were completed we managed to find the Gruffalo and we all had a picture with him. We had a really great day!
