Welcome to the Year 2 Page!
Welcome to Year 2,
I am really looking forward to an exciting term of fun learning and discovery.
In Year 2 we don’t expect everyone to get everything right first time – it is OK to make mistakes as long as we learn from them. We just expect children to try their best and never give up so they can be the best that they can be.
If you have any queries or need to speak to me, please don’t hesitate to do so.
Thank you for your support.

Talk For Writing - The Manchester Ridgeback
We have been using the text 'The Manchester Ridgeback' to produce our own information texts. You listen to a superb example below.
I have been so impressed by the poems written by the children. You can read and hear a great example below which contains some super similes and alliteration:
Whoosh! Fizz! Bang! Goes a rocket.
Hold your breath.
Oh jolly good, children screaming.
It is so deafening.
The rocket has streams of sparks everywhere in a trail.
The rocket is exploding like a volcano.
Children are excited to do their sparklers.
Waving them around like glistening gold.
Remember, remember the 5th of November.
Look at the amazing robots the Year 2s have made from recycled materials over the holiday.
Partake Theatre Company
We had a great time re-enacting the Great Fire of London! With one child dressed as Charles II and another as the baker, Thomas Farriner, the children had great fun re-enacting the momentous events. They dramatised rats in the plague, made a ribbon fire, pretended to ride horses with King Charles and row boats on the river Thames.
You can find more photos in the Gallery.
The Great Fire Of London
I was so impressed by the work Hector has done at home about the Great Fire of London, our topic this term. Well done Hector!
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.
