Welcome to Year 2

Mrs Clews is the Year 2 class teacher and Mrs Popps and Mrs Jones are the teaching assistants. 

On this page you will find our Long Term Plan and Newsletters. We will add pictures and details about exciting things we have been learning about throughout the year.



Year 2 had a wonderful morning on our pilgrimage walk. We thanked God for his gift of water and visited two water sources in our local area. These included Blackmoorfoot reservoir and an old well which would have been an important source of water for the local houses nearby long ago! During our pilgrimage, we had to overcome some challenging hills and footpaths. We said a prayer to thank God for his gift of water and we also thought about those who may not have enough clean water in different parts of the world.  


Please have a look at the link below for a comprehensive list of recommended books for Year 2. There are some fantastic classic stories and new titles to help your child with their reading journey! 

Year 2 Recommended Reads


 This week we have been remembering all the people who fought and lost their lives in war. We designed our own poppies and also created our own artwork based on the images of the poppy fields. We wrote our own Remembrance poems and thought of some super descriptive words. 


Year 2 had a wonderful outdoor learning day in the sunshine! We spent the morning looking for signs of Autumn in our playground and then making a checklist of things we found. We also used natural objects to represent different numbers as our own base 10 equipment to link with our maths learning this week! Some children even made our own magic number squares using natural objects and tried to make each row and column total 15 for an extra challenge! 

During the afternoon, we explored our wild area and made our own self-portraits using natural materials. We then created our own interpretations using inspiration from Andy Goldsworthy and made our own beautiful artwork and patterns.
