Year 2




We would like to take this opportunity to say hello and extend a warm welcome to the children and parents joining us in Year 2 this year. We have lots of exciting things planned and hope your children will share these experiences with you on a regular basis. They will experience new opportunities and challenges throughout the year, both inside and outside of the classroom. These will help them to develop and evolve both as learners and as a community of  St. John Fisher Primary.

What Are Year 2 Learning?

Maths: Children worked collaboratively in a practical lesson , using number bond equipment to consolidate their knowledge - they had great fun! They were able to share their knowledge of number bonds with each other using their speaking skills - a great way to build their confidence in communicating with each other.

Pupils really enjoyed making special cards for those who care for them on 'Mothering Sunday'. This lesson linked into our St. John Fisher's school values of showing kindness to others - they wrote personalised messages and used their design skills to decorate the cards - there were lots of sparkles and glitter!

RE: As part of our RE Topic this term the students took part in an interactive lesson, walking through the Stations of the Cross lead by our Year 6 Students. They listened to the meanings of each 'station' and were able to ask and answer questions on the topic. 

  As part of Science week Year 2 did some analysing of finger prints. Students enjoyed printing their individual finger prints and analysing them using magnifying glass, then comparing the results with their friends.


Students had fun carrying out a practical experiment called the 'Egg Drop' to as part of their Science Topic Everyday Materials. The test entailed dropping an egg from different heights onto various hard and soft materials - they had a smashing time!



PE will be on Tuesday and Thursdays  for Year 2E.

This term we will be learning hockey and orienteering.

 Reminder: School PE Kit should to be worn for all PE lessons; this includes black plimsolls/black or white trainers, black or navy shorts and a white t-shirt.
