Year 2 – Winter blog

Year 1 have had an exciting first half of the Spring Term. We have been looking at and enjoying traditional tales. Throughout the topic of Traditional Tales, we have orally retold, with actions, a few of our favourites, including: The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Elves and the Shoemaker and our current story Little Red Riding Hood.

This has linked to our science and design where we have been to the woods to design and make houses for woodland animals, including ‘The Big Bad Wolf’. During one of our walks we looked out for wolf prints, and to our surprise we found a wolf peeking out from behind the trees, just like in the story of Little Red Riding Hood, luckily for us it was only Mrs Brown. Since the beginning of the year we have focused on the seasons of the year, and during our woods visits, we have observed the seasonal changes from Autumn to Winter.

In geography we have also learned about the countries that make up the United Kingdom. Next term we will find out about their capital cities.

Also in the spring half term we will find out all about pets and plants.

Year 2 – Summer term 2 blog

Well done to all the children in Year 2 who completed their SAT’s this term. They have worked extremely hard and tried their best.


This term we have been learning about seasides. We have compared seasides from the past to seasides now. We have discussed similarities and differences. We have also found out what people used to wear and what activities took place on the beach.

Our trip this term was to South Shields beach. We had a fantastic day and the sun was shining all day. Children were able to see the physical and humans features at the seaside. We talked about what we could see, what we could hear and how we felt as we were sitting on the beach. This was then used in Literacy to support our writing.

We have looked at plants this term in Science. We have walked around the school and the local area to locate different plants and flowers. Children can name and identify some plants and flowers.
