Year 2 Apple and Aspen

Welcome to Year 2! 

The Year 2 team this year consists of: 

Apple Class- Mrs Wiginton, Mrs Brown and Mrs Collins. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

Aspen Class- Mrs Rowley, Mrs Parsons and Miss Thompson. Our P.E. days are Monday and Tuesday. 


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! The complete these missions, we first had to initiate our superhero training... 

The children are enjoying our fortnightly Forest School sessions. We have linked it with our Art and made self-portraits using leaves, twigs and other objects we could find. We even made frames! 

In Year 2 we have been learning about eating healthily and Aspen class have made some healthy 'dips and dunkers'. We practised our cooking skills, such as, mixing and cutting and grating vegetables. Of course, we tasted them too- yum! We evaluated which we liked best based on taste, appearance and texture.

Spring Term: 

This term we have focused our learning around The Great Fire of London. We have been getting creative with colour mixing and exploring how to create a firey texture as a backdrop to the silhouette of 1666 London. 


We have also made some fantastic Tudor houses in our D.T. and science lessons. We have chosen everyday materials, based on their properties, to make our houses rigid and strong. We looked at the features of Tudor houses and re-created these using a design and make process. Here are some of the finished products!
