Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Mrs. N. Gifford (Y2 teacher)

Mrs. T. Baker (TA) 

Year Two is the final year in Key Stage One;  we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other.  Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child.  We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.

Term One: Wonderful Water!


We had an amazing time caving last Tuesday! It was really interesting and exciting as we explored beneath the ground in the Mendips.  Thank you to Ali who made our experience even better by telling us all about the caves and letting us 'see' what it is really like under the ground with no light!

What a lot of wonderful rock stars we saw on Wednesday! Year Two really got into the swing of things and enjoyed creating their avatars on TT Rockstars as well as having a go at the 2 and 10 times tables.  Click on the link above to visit and explore the site.

Year Two created some amazing collages during our Wow day! We looked at how important water is in our lives and the lives of every human and animal. We found out that in Africa water is not as easily available as it is here in England. We focused on Kenya where Lila from our class story lives and looked at the physical and human geography there compared to Weston-super-Mare. Our collages show the similarities and differences of these two places in the world.  We also used the internet to research what life was like in Kenya for children in the countryside and children in the town. In the afternoon, we had some fun and challenging water activities to complete! Working as a team we had to solve the problem of transporting water using three lengths of guttering, trying not to lose or waste any of the water; we also held large water carriers on our heads to carry water over a distance with our teams - it was quite tricky! See the photo gallery at the bottom of this page for even more photos.





Welcome back to school and to Year Two!  We will begin by having an induction week with a whole school focus of 'Take One Picture'.  The children will have one picture from which all of our learning will stem.  We will then get together with the rest of the school at the end of the week to share all of our amazing learning.  After a lovely, relaxing summer, we will be ready to launch ourselves into a fresh new year with lots of exciting learning opportunities!  Following the induction, we will begin our learning project, 'Wonderful Water'.  There is a link to the planned learning opportunities above.
