Our Local Area

Year 2’s new topic is our local area. The children were challenged to create model buildings of locations in our local area.

Miss Allison and Miss Cargill were so impressed by what the children had made! They all did a fantastic job and all the teachers have said how good they all look.


Take a look at what they have made and see if you recognise it from our local area….

Year 2 Homework 9/2/17

Hi everyone,

A big well done to all of the children for working so hard this half-term. They’ve all achieved so much and should be very proud of themselves.

Half-term homework is a project all about Our Local Area. The children need to choose an iconic building or landmark in our local area and create it. They could use shoe boxes, cereal boxes kitchen roll tubes or anything else available. They then need to write a fact file all about that landmark e.g. How long has it been there for? Has it always been used in the same way? Who visits it?

There is also a comprehension and writing challenge to complete.

Have a lovely half-term break,

Miss Allison and Miss Cargill

Nurturing Nurses

In Year 2 we have been learning all about Nurturing Nurses. We were so lucky to have a visit from a nurse working in Guys and St Thomas’ hospital. She told us all about her job as a nurse and taught us that it’s so important to wash our hands to stop germs spreading just like Florence did in the Crimean war. We also learnt the importance of introducing ourselves to patients to make them feel comfortable and more relaxed.

The children got the chance to dress up as a nurse and treat a patient using plasters and bandages.

A big thank you to Mrs O’Riordan for coming in and inspiring the children. We have lots of future nurse as well as very talented parents in our school!

Tasty ham sandwiches!

Year 2 have been learning all about how to write instructions. Last week we read the story ‘The Light House Keeper’s Lunch’ and we wrote instructions for how to make Mr Grinling’s delicious chicken sandwich. Today, the children followed instructions to make their own ham sandwich. Later this week, they will be writing up their instructions for someone else to follow. Perhaps they could show off their culinary skills at home and make lunch or dinner for their family?

Year 2 Homework 2/2/17


This week’s homework is attached below.

In Maths, the children have been learning all about ‘missing number’ sentences. We have been using different methods such as counting on if the numbers are close together, or using the inverse operation if they are far apart.

Reading homework this week is linked to our science topic of animals including humans. There is a comprehension all about the life-cycle of a chicken.

The Science homework for this week is to keep a diary each day of all the exercise that you do, remember, this isn’t just in PE lessons it includes all the walking, cycling or other after school clubs that you do!

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Cargill and Miss Allison
