Elk - Year 2

Welcome to the Elk Page!


Mr Allsopp and Mrs Harrison warmly welcome you to the Elk class. We will keep you updated here with all the exciting things we learn each term.


This term we are really excited to be learning about life in the 1960s to find out if the children’s grandparents had lots of fun when they were young. We will also be learning about environmental issues and what we can do to make Belmont school and the surrounding area safer and cleaner for us. Please click on the document below to find out more.


We hope that you find our homework challenges exciting and motivating. All of the challenges for the term will be found inside the homework books. We ask that one challenge is completed every two weeks. In addition to these challenges please continue to read to your child as often as possible and record this in their reading record.


Keeping fit and healthy is super important so we need to make sure that we remember to bring our PE kits to school for PE lessons on Tuesday and Thursday.


Please don’t hesitate to pop in if you have any questions.


Mr Allsopp

Kenning Poems

We had great fun creating our Kenning poems. Can you guess the answer to the riddles?

Our Class Display

One of our first tasks this term has been to create a display to represent our class name, Elk. The children used pencils and pastels to create some fabulous drawings and we are very proud of our display in the hall.

The Seaside

The use of similes in the stories about a trip to the seaside has been impressive - 'I felt the sand absorbing into my feet like the blood soaking into a plaster' is just one brilliant example. The children are also showing great pride in their work and it is beautifully presented. You can see a super example from Laury-Leigh below.

Persuasive Writing

This term we have been learning about Australia. I was really impressed with the Sydney travel guides that the children have made. The persuasive language they used was excellent.


Well done everybody!

We have enjoyed learning the story of George and the Dragon and the children have produced some beautifully presented narrative writing and imaginative storytelling as you can see and hear..

World Book Day

All of the pencils went on strike in Year 2 this morning! We decided to write letter pleading for their return and were very grateful when they did!

Talk For Writing - The Manchester Ridgeback

We have been using the text 'The Manchester Ridgeback' to produce our own information texts about The Flash Dragon. An impressive piece of writing from Y2!  Listen to a superb example below.

DigiDog and DigiPup

We are so excited that DigiDog and DigiPup have joined Year 2 to help us with our e-safety learning this year. In class we will talking about the things we should teach DigiPup before we let him go online, and every weekend one of the children from the class will be able to take DigiPup home. We would like the children to talk with their family about how they can have fun online and what's okay and what's not okay to do on the internet. They can also write a DigiPup diary or story to tell us what happened when they took him home and how they made sure he stayed happy and safe.


You can read two super diary entries below.
