My experience of learning through Corona Virus

'Tiger in a Tropical Storm' art - November 2020

As part of our Rainforest topic we were inspired by Henri Rousseau's painting, Tiger in a Tropical Storm. We then created our own interpretations using drawing, painting and collage skills.

Remembrance at Howe Dell 2020

In 2.2 we made poppy pictures to display in our window, and to share for a display in our library and local care home, Sanctuary House.

We also wore red and black, shared a moment of reflection and respectfully observed the 2 minute silence to remember those who have made sacrifices for the good of us all.

School grounds walk to inspire Writing - November 2020

After reading the story Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne in our English lessons, we went on a walk around our school grounds, stopping off at some of the different features that we encountered on our journey.

We then used this sequence of events to write recounts, using adverbials of time to order events in our writing. 

I'm a Year 2, Get Me Out of Here! October 2020

We had so much fun taking part in different 'bushtucker trials' to end our Rainforest topic for this half term. Some of the trials were much more enjoyable than others!

BMX Wonder Day September 2020

What a fantastic way to start the new term! The children were amazed and inspired by Mike and his BMX display. They learned important lessons about how we should never say "I can't" but should instead learn from our mistakes and keep going!

We hope that you are all well and keeping safe at home. We miss you all and look forward to being back at school together.

Here are some of our rainbows of hope that we painted. Have you made a rainbow? If so, please stick it in your window at home to spread some happiness to everyone who passes by.

From all of your teachers in Year 2 smiley


A newer version of the online learning resources document along with the online resources to help with Reading.

Mrs Miller will be teaching a song, about the current situation, to the Pods in school and it would be great if you could learn it at home too! Below are two You Tube links; the first is the song being performed by pupils and the second is the song with the words, so you can join in. As always, please supervise your child whilst on You Tube.

Many thanks

Multiplictation and division game


Lots of action today. Teachers arrived at school this morning and found two eggs had hatched. Looking back on the camera we found they hatched about 6:30am. Throughout the day we noticed some more cracks appearing and could even see beaks poking through holes in the shell. Eventually, we were super lucky to watch as an egg hatched right before our eyes straight after lunchtime. Year two have been very excited today. After school Miss Brind and Mrs Blow set up their new home and moved the fluffy chicks that were ready. Two had to stay behind in the incubator as they were not fluffy enough and they need to encourage the other eggs to hatch. Year two children now need to look after the chicks; making sure they have enough food and water. We have certainly enjoyed filling in our chick diaries today!
