Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to year 2! We are so happy to welcome the children back to school. We have missed everyone so much and cannot wait for our learning journey to begin together. We have a fantastic year planned for our lovely year 2 children and are so excited to work with you to ensure that your child is enjoying school life. As you know, the class 5 teacher is Ms McGuinness and the class 6 teacher is Miss Bartlam. Mrs Bucknall and Miss Creber will also work with the year 2 children regularly. Our door is always open and if you have any questions, worries or concerns, please do let us know. Together we are going to make this year a wonderful experience for the children. Our year together is going to be fun and exciting as we continue to... 'Be Kind, Be Brave, Be Happy!'

Amazing Artists

Week Beginning  20.9.21


What a wonderful week we have had in year 2. We are having more fun than ever and are loving the sunshine. This week the year 2 children have shown what 'amazing artists' they are by working on their rainforest pictures. They chose an interesting rainforest animal, drew the outline slowly, and carefully filled the page with detail. After that, they made their pictures so colourful by adding lots of vibrant oil pastels. We are so proud of their resilience! Well done year 2!

Sunshine and Smiles

Week Beginning 13.9.21


What an amazing week we have had in year 2. It has been so much fun and Ms M in particular is SUPER happy to be back at school with everyone. It has been a busy week in year 2. We have written stories based on 'How Big Is The World?', worked on telling the time, drawn some rainforest animals, learnt a song about the continents and oceans and discussed animal habitats. Phew! We have also had time to enjoy the sunshine and have shown so much reciprocity when playing with our wonderful friends. Some children are new friends and some children are old friends but they are each and everyone of them... LOVELY! Here are some of us playing in the sun. Just look at those sunshine smiles!

Welcome back year 2!

Week beginning 6.9.21


As we approach the end of our first week back we wanted to say a great big well done to all of our super year 2 children. They have continued to show amazing resilience as they adapt to life in year 2 and have really made their teachers smile with their kindness and respect. We can tell it is going to be an amazing year! For those of you who aren't already aware, we have brand new class names and we would love to share these with you. You will now find the Pouncing Polar Bears in Class 5 and the Dashing Dolphins in Class 6. On Wednesday, we put our artist hats on and spent some time creating our own class animal and rock, we are looking forward to you getting a chance to see these on display very soon.


As always we wanted to say thank you for all of your support at home. With your help our lovely year 2s have settled back really well and we can't wait to get to know you and them better as the year unfolds. 

Love Ms M and Miss Bartlam
