Year 2 Latest News


Different shapes and sounds.

Wow! Look at all the shapes Year 2 found on their shape walk around school. The boys and girls were brilliant shape detectives. The children also went on a sound walk and used their listening skills to hear all the different sounds around our school. Well done everyone!

Day Five

The children are learning about time and they had great fun working out how many star jumps they could do in a minute. They also raced against the clock to see how many times they could write their names in a minute.

Day Four

Year 2 have been learning to add and they used dominoes to work out how many spots there were in total on each domino.

Day Three

The children had to look at different fruit and vegetables and work out how many different ways to sort them e.g. for colour or peel/not peel.

Day Two

There is a brand new fruit and vegetable shop opened in Year 2. The children have been learning how to use money to pay for their shopping and they were very good at working out how much it cost if they bought more than one item.


Day One - Maths Week

We needed two matching towers for our castle and we worked with a partner to give instructions to build our towers so that they matched. The children had great fun “hiding” their towers behind the screen and listening to their partner’s instructions to see if the two towers ended up the same. There was great excitement when the screen was pulled back and the towers were revealed! Did the colours match? Were the towers the same height?

Musical Instruments.

Year 2 had great fun playing some musical instruments and singing. We all played a listening game using the instruments so that the boys and girls could use their listening skills to guess the name of the instrument that was being played.

Art time in Year 2.

Year 2 had great fun learning a new skill called wet felting. The children made some wonderful creations and they even made a Santa to decorate a Christmas card for Holy Trinity Primary School. Well done boys and girls!

Debbie Doolittle's Visit.

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Debbie Doolittle. The boys and girls got to meet and touch a ferret, a rabbit, a hedgehog, Spirit the owl and Linney the fox.  Debbie told us about how she cares for the injured animals and shared lots of interesting facts! She even told us that Linney the fox sleeps at the bottom of her bed!!

Snack time in P2.

Year 2 children really enjoy their healthy snacks each day and they enjoy treat day on a Friday. The boys and girls are brilliant at pouring out their drinks and they love helping out with the washing up too! Please remember to send snack money in each Monday in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name. Snacks are £2.00 per week.
