Reading week in year 2

We have had a superb week in year 2. We have been learning about the classic story Fantastic Mr Fox.

The children have enjoyed hearing the story and learning about the brilliant characters. The children have completed lots of activists based on the story. They described the characters of Mr Fox and farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean using the descriptions from the story. Have a look at one below.


The children created wanted posters for The Fantatsic Mr Fox and we also had a great time at our reading cafe. We made a new tail for Mr Fox after the horrible farmers shot it off! Have a look at our hard work on display below.


Have a lovely weekend.

The Papaya that spoke

We have been having lots of fun in year 2 this week learning our new innovated stories.


The children have changed the characters in the story and the fruit that spoke. We have had fab stories like ‘The pineapple that spoke’ and ‘The apple that spoke’.


Ask your child about their story!


Have a great weekend.

Apple and Raspberry Crumble

This morning we made an apple crumble and it was pink as we put raspberries in it. We read some instructions and  put some flour, butter and sugar in a bowl to make the crumble. We peeled and chopped the apples, we made a bridge with our fingers so we didn’t cut ourselves. We think it will taste juicy and yummy.

Southwold trip

Year 2 had such a fantastic visit to Southwold today. Their behaviour was amazing and they were a credit to the school. We visited Southwold lighthouse and we climbed all the way to the top. We used our binoculars to look out to sea and we could see another group on the pier. We learnt all about light house keepers including more about Mr Grinling and Mr William Darling who we are learning about. We also visited the pier and got to see some of the old arcade games and we had lots of fun looking at ourselves in the funny mirrors. Finally we visited the Alfred Corry museum to find out all about life boats. We got to role play and see how the life boat used to be launched and we learned lots about the history of the Alfred Corry. We had so much fun and we can’t wait to tell everybody about our fantastic day of learning!

The first week in year 2!

Wow! What a first week we have had in year 2, the children have worked very hard and have settled into the classes brilliantly.

We have learnt a new poem using a text map called ‘Chocolate Cake’ by Michael Rosen. Have a look at the poet below reading his poem.


We even got to try some chocolate cake to get our creative juices flowing.

Have a superb weekend!
