Year 2

A huge welcome to Year 2 with Mrs Hodgson’s Maple class and Mr Smith’s Lime Tree Class.


Year 2 is an exciting year where we learn to write a range of texts in English, challenge ourselves in maths and discover more about our world through topics.


Our topics include all areas of the curriculum from ICT to geography, Science to History and so much more. We will find out about the weather in Australia, how plants grow, what can be recycled and how to make a pizza!


There are so many things to look forward to during the year with trips, visitors and theme days. We hope you have as much fun as we will!

The United Kingdom

Autumn 1

As part of our geography topic we learned all about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom, as well as their capital cities.

Here you can see that we made the UK out of sourdough!

Pizza Express

Autumn 1

As part of our PSHE topic ‘Healthy Diet’ we went on a trip to Pizza Express in Darlington. Here we weighed ingredients, learned about the food we eat and also learned all about health and safety in the kitchen at home.


Autumn 1

We made clay Diva lamps as part of our Hinduism topic to celebrate Diwali.

Remembrance Day - November 11th

Autumn 2

As part of our Remembrance Day celebrations, we learned all about veterans and year 2 got to see first-hand some medals and uniform from when Mrs A Graham was in the army.  Here is Amber (Private Britton) on parade.

The Great Fire of London

Autumn 2

As part of the Great Fire of London topic we had a visit from the firefighters.  The children learnt about their uniform, compared it to uniform in 1666, fire safety and then had a go at putting out a pretend fire.


Autumn 2

Year 2 made paper houses in computing and then as part of our History topic, ‘The Great Fire of London’, we burned them in a fire pit!


‘I was excited to see if the houses would burn’


‘I was scared in case the wind blew the fire, like it did in 1666’


‘I was sad, I didn’t want my house to burn’
