Welcome To 2D

Welcome back  for your child's final term in Year 2 and being in the infants.

We all had a great sports day at the end of last half term and we were very pleased and proud of all the children and how they tried their hardest when taking part in all of the events.


We had a great trip to Clitheroe Castle. in our first week back. The children had lots of fun and we are very grateful to all of the volunteers who helped out on the trip.

On Friday 14th June we have booked Northern Archery to come and work with the children in small groups so that everyone gets to experience this sport.


We are going to be starting our new topic the week commencing 17th June. More details to follow shortly. The children will be taking part in the Year 2 production this half term. Times and dates will follow in the topic letter.


Thank you

Mrs Dowker and Mrs Davies smiley

Today we enjoyed a visit from Debbie Green. Debbie told us all about Pentecost🔥

Can you guess our celebrations? We discussed celebrations in RE🌲💐💥

We have made a model of a castle out of cardboard. We measured and cut the four walls and assembled them together. We made a moving drawing bridge and decorated the base and castle. There was lots of carefully measuring and we had a great time!

Year 2 have visited Clitheroe Castle. We learned about motte and bailey castles, knights and dragons. We had a great time and learned lots.

We worked as a team to create a piece of Rangoli art work; took part in some Indian dancing and had henna on our hands. We learned lots and had lots of fun.

We have been learning about the Hindu festival of Holi. This is a spring festival and known as the festival of colour. We learned about the Hindu stories that people remember during this festival and how they celebrate it. One way they celebrate is people throwing coloured water and powder paint at each other as part of their celebrations. We drew a self portrait and add hair by blowing paint and flicking paint across it like the celebrations of Holi.

We have made a festival elephant using a plastic milk bottle. We have learned how elephants are decorated for special occasions and some festivals.

During recycling week, one of Lancashire County Council recycling crew visited Year 2. We found out how the truck worked and the importance of reducing, recycling and reusing.

In Year 2, we have had an end of topic project. We used our knowledge of habitats and the animals that live in that habitat to plan and build a model of an enclosure. We used our building learning powers to work in teams, listening to each other and contributing ideas; we made a plan and rose to the challenge whilst reflecting and adapting things as the project progressed. On Friday 1st March parents and carers came into school to see our fabulous enclousres.
