Year 2

Class Teacher: Mrs Johnson


There are two websites we use in class to help us learn and you can continue to use them out of school with the same log in details.  Mathletics and IDL  

You can even download the app for both of these on your tablet or iPad.


Curriculum Overview Y2

Autumn Newsletter
We have been learning about the Nepali festival of Dashain.  We have learnt that it is the festival of the Gods overcoming evil.  To help celebrate in Nepal they make Pings.  This is a giant swing made from bamboo.  We could not make giant pings that we could use so we made mini ones for our toy figure.  See what you think.

We have been learning how to say our name in Nepali.  It’s tricky to get the tone right. 

Working with our friends in Nepal.  To help children in Nepal learn English we have recorded ourselves saying phrases from the story “Baby Monkey”.  We have tried to say them as if we were in the story to show how to use tone when speaking.  


In Science we have been testing different materials for Fairis the Fair Trade frog to make his bag from.  So far we have tested strength and flexibility.  We will be testing absorbency soon. 

Year 2 have been doing Multi-skills with Paul from Little Kickers.  We have been playing games like feed the zoo animals, treasure hunt and stuck in the mud to develop our agility, balance and coordination. 

A  fun day at Castle Head taking part in a night walk, animal hunt, obstacle course and the low ropes.  

Poetry Workshop with Andy Tooze.  


Multiskills at Cartmel Priory School.   

A fab morning practicing our agility, balance and coordination with the schools in our cluster.
