Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to year 2. We are so excited about the coming year and have lots of fantastic activities planned. If you have any questions about your child or would like some additional information about our curriculum please pop in and have a chat. 

Christmas Fair

Week beginning 3.12.18


The Christmas fair was highly enjoyable and successful. We raised over £2,400! Thank you to all those who supported it by donating, running stalls, organising it or by spending :). 

Mrs Bright had a quick dash about to get photos of all the marvellous stalls before they were quickly sold out. If you couldn't make it this year, here's hoping the photos below will encourage you to join us in the future. 

The children did such a good job of making their Christmas crafts and the Friends of Woodthorpe group along with staff put so much enthusiasm into making the event the resounding success it was. 

Many thanks to all!

Enterprise Afternoon

Week beginning 26.11.18


On Monday afternoon the children had a great time making items to sell at our up and coming first Xmas fair. Class 5 made hot chocolate reindeers and Class 6 made rustic tree decorations. They did a brilliant job and we hope there will be a mad rush to purchase them. Also there will be a game on each stall. Class 6 are having a 'pin the nose on the reindeer' game and Class 5 will have the stocks with Miss M taking the hit for the team! 

We hope to see you all there helping to support the children's understanding of how making things can produce a profit. Also we want you to have lots of fun and join us in entering into the Christmas spirit.

See you there!

Children in Need and The Great Kapok Tree

Week beginning 19.11.18


Last Friday we dressed up in our  pyjamas and raised money for Children in Need. There were some crazy outfits and that was just the staff! 

We have been working on the text The Great Kapok Tree which is about preserving a rainforest. The children have produced some amazing writing with exclamations and speech marks. 

We continue with our rehearsals for The Landlord's Cat and you will truly be amazed by your children's talents.

The Landlord's Cat

Week beginning 12.11.18


Rehearsals are well under way for this year's KS1 Christmas performance. The children have been busy learning lines, acting and singing. Already, there are some little stars in the making. smiley

Thank you for your support in this. Tickets are available from Monday for the performances on Wednesday 12th  and Friday the 14th of December. You are in for a real treat!

We also celebrated Children in Need day and had lots of fun in our crazy pyjamas....even the staff!

Safety Week

Week beginning 5.11.18


We have had an exciting week learning about how to stay safe in many different ways including online, on the road, near and in the water and in the event of a fire. The children were thrilled to see the fire engine and crew from Arnold Fire Station and also enjoyed the talk about the RNLI from Geoff Pearson who visited on Thursday. Talk to your child about what they have learned and keep safe!

Performing Poets

Week beginning 22.10.18


What a busy week! This week we have worked very hard on writing our own poems about a magic carpet ride. We read them to our friends. Click here to hear a fantastic poet! What do you think?

Clever Computing

Week beginning 15.10.18


We have had a brilliant time this week creating our own digital images. We put two images together using a special photo app. The pictures show us on our magic carpets flying around the world. Aren't they fantastic?

Amazing Acting

Week beginning 8.10.18


We've had a lovely week in year 2. We read a poem called 'The Magic Carpet' by Brian Moses and made up actions to go with it. It was lots of fun! 


Week beginning 1.10.18


Once we had finally arrived we had an amazing time at Perlethorpe.  We sifted the river bed and found all sorts of interesting minibeasts such as blood worms. We all ended up with squelchy feet but it was definitely worth it. We hunted for minibeasts in the woodland too and pretended to be moles. What a fantastic day!
