Welcome to the Year 2 topic page!

Below you can see what exciting curriculum activities we have been have been taking part in in Autumn 2017 - click a picture to enlarge it.


We use recycled materials to build our own Wacky Races car!

Very carefully we measured and cut our own axles to fit on our cars.

In Maths we worked with a partner to measure different parts of our cars in centimetres.

In art we used different types of materials to add detail to our paintings.

Year 2 International Week, Welcome to the UK and Wacky Races


We painted cityscapes in the style of Lowry as part of our UK project

In ICT we used Beebots to find our way around a map of the UK.

We had to programme the Beebot and write an algorithm to get to a city in the UK.

If the algorithm was incorrect we had to debug it and make the algorithm right!

On World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite book characters.

We used drama to act out the Titanic disaster.

In ICT we used Clicker 6 to write about the Titanic.

It snowed so we went outside to play in it.

Year 2 Spring 2018


We conducted a cress experiment in Science.

We explored smells from the Titanic. Some were very smelly indeed!

During Sports Relief we challenged ourselves to get fit.

At Seacity Museum we dressed up as people who were on the Titanic.
