Year 2


This term in Year 2 we have been learning about ‘Water’ and ‘China’. During our ‘Water’ topic we studied rivers and the water cycle. We did some interesting science experiments to see what happens when we mix things, such as oil, with water. We learned about the five oceans of the world and explored the oceans, seas and rock pools as habitats. We looked at the work of some famous artists, like Matisse, who used the sea as their inspiration. During our ‘China’ topic we are learning all about this huge, and diverse, country and its culture. We have learned about Giant Pandas and their endangered status and we have listened to the story of the Chinese Zodiac. We also found out about the history of the Great Wall of China and will learn about the famous terracotta warriors. We are looking forward to visiting Tullie House, later this half term, to find out even more about China. We are also enjoying the opportunity to work with Miss Foster and Nick Rigg who are coaching us in gymnastic and football skills.


We hope everyone has stayed safe during the recent bad weather and hopefully some of you have managed to get out and enjoy the snow. If you would like to share your snow day pictures with us please send them to We would love to see what you have been up to.
