‘Creating Opportunities’

Autumn 1

Welcome Year 2!


Hello and welcome to the new Silver, Purple and Gold classes! We look forward to meeting you all very soon. To learn more about your class teachers please have a look in the 'Meet the Team' section on the website.

Fit for Life


Our first topic is Fit for Life. We started off by learning all about the Olympics and how they started. We then split in to 3 teams to compete as a country. We made flags and learnt all about those countries.


Can you guess the countries from the colours and flags below?


At the end of the day we had a special assembly called a 'closing ceremony' where we got presented with awards. What did your country win?

Aim and Value


Our aim and value this half term is to 'Be Kind'. We have been doing lots of work in class about how we can be kind to one another. In our classrooms we have a 'Be Kind' display.


Some ways we could be kind are:

  • playing with our friends
  • listening
  • making good choices
  • helping others
  • give hugs
  • cheering people up

Black History Week


To celebrate Black History week we had a drumming workshop. We learnt how to hit the drum correctly using the heel of your hand and the palm to create different sounds. Year 2 learnt the story of Anansi.



Spooky Snacks

We had a fantastic time designing our spooky snacks. Our design criteria was that they had to be spooky and they had to be healthy. Did we meet the criteria?
