Year 2 Gallery

Term 6 – Castles

We are absolutely loving our Castle topic! We recently had a ‘Castle Day’ where we spent all morning making our own models. On June 19th we really enjoyed visiting Caldicot Castle and meeting a real knight called Sir Thomas!

Term 5 – Habitats

We’ve been super busy learning about habitats and our local environment. At the beginning of term we had a trip to Portishead Marina so we could see the sculpture trail.

Term 4 – Florence Nightingale

This term we are learning all about how to stay fit and healthy. We have looked back to 1854 and how Florence Nightingale changed hospitals for the better. Take a look at the ‘before’ and ‘after’ hospital we made using shoe boxes!

Term 3 – India

We are really enjoying learning about India and all of the Indian traditions. We’ve been sewing mango patterns, cooking naan bread and we’ve learnt lots about Asian elephants! We were also very lucky to watch a puppet show about the story of Rama and Sita.

Term 2 – The Great Fire of London

We’ve been learning all about The Great Fire of London and discussing how lucky we are to have our emergency services now. On Monday 13th November we had a very special visit from some local firefighters!

Term 1 – Dinosaur

Our trip to Bristol Museum 19/10/17

We were lucky enough to go and visit Dorris the Pliosaur at Bristol Museum. We explored the exhibition and really enjoyed our fossil workshop.


We used our cutting and joining skills in D&T to create a dinosaur model.


We found a mysterious egg on the field! We wrote a report about our findings and created our own newspaper.


We loved studying the different shapes, sizes and features of the dinosaurs and we used our new knowledge to help make our clay models.
