‘Creating Opportunities’

Autumn 23-24


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

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 into three 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?

Plant Artwork

Our theme was plants and living things so we looked at Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and Andy Warhol  and recreated some of their artwork. We learnt about them and their lives. 


We were truly inspired and very impressed with our skills to complete all the pieces. Our Year 2 display in the hall looks fantastic!

Around the World- Topic Launch

We launched our topic by exploring some different countries around the world. We needed passports to cross the borders of each country so we designed our own passports and carried them with us. We got a stamp from each place we travelled! We planned our trip and each had an itinerary to follow. Can you guess which countries we visited?

Gurdwara visits

We have been learning about Sikhism this term. We were very lucky to have the opportunity to visit a Gurdwara in Hounslow. The children were very excited to catch the bus and travel to Hounslow. All the children enjoyed their tour of the Gurdwara and were very respectful during the visit, we are very proud of how they demonstrated our Aim and Values on our first trip.
