Hedgehog Home Learning

Here's Lottie's hedgehog! Well-done Lottie!



As part of Black History month, year 2 learnt about Rosa Parks who made a difference in history in the fight for equality. We also read the book Look Up by author Nathan Bryon and did a guided drawing to create one of the characters from his story. 


Now, one of our Year 4 children has co-curated an exciting event with her favourite authors including Nathan Bryon and along with Hannah Lee and Peter Kalu. On Saturday 28th November at 2pm  these authors will be online via Zoom ready to read their books and talk with Manchester school children. It is an organised event recommended for children aged 4 - 8 and their grown ups. If you would like to find out more click on the link below:




Many Thanks!


Thank you to those parents who have kindly already emailed their child's Xmas photograph to the Year 2 email address. We look forward to receiving the rest of the year groups by Friday 27th November.


You will find your child's line for their xmas song in their reading record. Please take a photograph of your child that represents the line they have been given - you can be as creative as you like! We are going to collate the photographs into a Christmas movie that we would like to share with all our year 2 parents. Please remember if you do not wish your child to included in the movie do not email a photograph of your child.


Kind Regards,

Year 2 Team.



What's Coming up?


After parent's evenings this week, lots of parents have asked for an overview of some of the things we will be learning about in Year 2 maths this term. Please find below a list of the topics we are going to cover. Whilst we teach objectives in the same order as the White Rose scheme of work, we continue to use our own weekly plans for maths and supplement these with White Rose and Classroom secrets materials. We have now moved onto money, making different amounts in pounds and pence and recognising coin and note values.



Worry Dolls.

Sphero Challenge!

We were very lucky to have MGL in school teaching us all about algorithms, programming and debugging. The children learnt how to drive a Sphero and navigate it by inputting a program in a variety of challenges.

Christmas is on it's way!

We have had a great day in our Christmas jumpers! Thank you very much for bringing in the chocolate for our chocolate tombola!

In PSHCE we have been learning all about our emotional well-being and how to identify and manage our emotions. Today we have been learning about 'worries' and strategies to help us! We enjoyed reading the story 'Silly Billy by Anthony Browne' and each child was given a worry doll to take home. To develop coping strategies we practised a range of relaxation techniques including deep breathing, guided meditation and some cosmic yoga. Simply sharing our worries with a trusted adult or friend seemed to help many of our children.

Living and Non-Living


We have been learning about living and non-living things this week in science and the seven life processes. We finished our lesson by investigating living things in our school garden.

Thumbs up Year 2!

What a fantastic first three weeks we have had in year 2. We are so pleased with how all the children have settled back into school life. Everyone has been so eager to learn and have adapted extremely well to the changes made in school.

We have been busy already learning interesting facts in our new topic Our Town Sale and finding out all about materials in science.

We have also been challenging ourselves in maths and made a great start in our RWI groups.

We will be regularly adding photos of our learning and any relevant information here so please keep a look out.

Thank you everyone for your continued support!

In science we have been looking at characteristics of materials. We used a venn diagram to sort a variety of objects. We worked in small groups, chose our own ways of sorting and wrote our own titles.

Welcome Presentation

We have uploaded our Year 2 welcome presentation to Microsoft Teams. Your child should have brought home their reading record, which contains their username and password to access the Year 2 Teams page. Many of you have already accessed this and have said hello so thank you. Please note, we have now deactivated the use of comments on the wall. The Teams wall will now only be used by the Year 2 Team to post work should our bubble go into lockdown. Please use the email address to login (Teams user guides are saved below)


Many thanks.
