Nunnery Wood Primary School

Year 2 Apple and Aspen

Welcome to Year 2! 

The Year 2 team this year consists of: 

Apple Class- Mr Hill and Mrs Rotaru. Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday.

Aspen Class- Mrs Rowley and Mrs Parsons. Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday. 


Autumn Term:

We are so impressed with how the children have settled into Year 2. They have come back to school excited and ready to learn. We have started the year with our theme, 'We Are All Superheroes!'. The children enjoyed our stunning start, when they received a video from Superhero HQ asking for their help to complete various missions! To complete these missions, we first had to initiate our superhero training... 



We also made some super awesome superhero cuffs.



The children are enjoying our fortnightly Forest School sessions.




Dips and Dunkers:

The children really enjoyed preparing and making dips. This unit of work enabled pupils to start to apply their understanding about healthy eating (in accordance with The eatwell guide), as well as to explore where their food comes from, how to plan a dish with consideration for the dietary needs of others and prepare a dish safely and hygienically.


  • Pupils will develop knowledge about healthy eating and where food comes from.
  • Pupils will be aware that others may have different dietary needs so dishes may need to be modified.
  • Pupils will get ready to cook and prepare ingredients safety and hygienically.
  • Pupils will make and evaluate their dish.

Dips we made:

  • Quick Guacamole Dip
  • Savoury cottage cheese dip
  • Tzatziki Dip
  • Creamy cheese and chive dip



Autumn Term 2:

This term our topic is 'Sparkle and Shine'.

Woodland (w/c 15.11.21)

This week Year 2 have enjoyed drinking hot chocolate around the campfire. They have been learning about fire safety and exploring the woodland area.



Spring term:


Church visit. Year 2 had an amazing trip to St Martin’s Church on the 31st March. They had a great time learning all about the altar, font, Lady Chapel and vestments. Father Peter and Mike were very enthusiastic and helpful. The children enjoyed exploring and being able to go on a visit out of school again.





Summer 1:

We have lots of exciting and engaging activities planned for this half term. Our theme is “Growing Tall”. Much of our work in English, Geography, Art and Science will be linked to this theme, exploring growing plants and keeping a bean diary, looking at a contrasting area of the world (we will be having a Special Day later in the Term – watch this space!) and looking at art in the natural environment.  Our English text is Jack and the Jellybean Stalk and the BFG, which will help us practise our reading and writing skills, including nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. We will also have a focus on different punctuation. We will be writing reports about Giants and a Giant story to apply these skills.


Stunning Start!!

When a giant came to visit! 



Science: 6.5.22

9.5.22 - Today we enjoyed learning about the life-cycle of a bean plant. We even planted our own beans!!
