WB 9th May 2022

This week in Year 2, we have continued to learn about animals and their habitats. We went on a bug hunt in the playground to see what we would find. We found lots of different microhabitats in the soil, on the flowers and under logs but pupils made sure to not disturb the habitats too much as they didn’t want to scare any of the minibeasts. We then represented our findings in a table and a bar chart.



As you can see, we were able to find a variety of ants, flies, bees and spiders. We even found a centipede, millipede and worm!

WB 3rd May 2022

Last week in RE, Year 2 learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and the evil demon Ravana. This week we have recapped this learning by retelling the story in our own words and learning about how it links to the festival of Diwali and how Diwali is celebrated.

WB 25th April 2022

In Year 2, in maths we have been developing our knowledge of multiplication and division and applying this in various contexts. We have looked worded problems and fractions, where we practiced finding a fraction of a shape and a fraction of a number.

WB 19th April 2022


In Year 2, in science, we have been looking at the different habitats of animals. We discussed what a habitat is and different habitats we would find around the world. We then looked at specific animals and where they live, focusing on how they are adapted to their specific habitat.


One of the animals we looked at was a camel. Can you think of how a camel is adapted to live in the desert?

WB 28th March

To end our science topic of Living Things, Year 2 have been looking at how to classify and identify different animals. The pupils have used their prior knowledge of animal groups, diets and food chains to create their own classification key which follows a series of questions to get to each different animal. We used yes or no questions to classify a group of animals into different categories so that each branch would eventually lead to one animal. Have a look and see if you can get to the correct animal by following our questions!

WB 21st March 2022

This week in our science lesson, we were looking at food chains for different animals. The pupils looked at the structure and language used within food chains, describing each of the features and the role of each animal. Then the pupils used their prior knowledge of carnivores, omnivores and herbivores to describe the diet of each animal and state if the animal was a predator or prey.

WB 14th March 2022

Recently in Year 2 we have been looking at our local area and our routes to and from school. This week we have recapped human features (things that are made or built by humans) and physical features (anything that is on the Earth naturally), using this to locate different places of interest on our route to school. We then compared what we see on our routes with our partners to see what was similar and what was different.

WB 7th March 2022

In English this week, Year 2 have been preparing to write a persuasive letter to the famous author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson! We are hoping to persuade her to write a new story about The Gruffalo titled The Gruffalo's Wife. In lessons, we have been imagining what she would look like and using descriptive language to show this. We have also been looking at persuasive language and how we can write in a way that convinces people.
