Year 2 - Cherry & Larch


What a fantastic afternoon we spent down in West Bridgford at the Cricket World Cup taster session. We all had a wonderful time. Well done Larch class for your excellent behaviour and thanks to all the parents who helped.

As part of our RE learning, Imran has been teaching us about Ramadan and why Muslims celebrate this festival and what it involves. We had lots of questions about fasting and reasons for doing this. Thank you for teaching us, Imran!

Applying to be a Palaeontologist

A Palaeontologist's visit


Below are photos from our dinosaur topic making T-rex documentaries in the woods, measuring the length of a Diplodocus neck on the playground and the naughty dinosaurs that invaded our classroom!


Designing Tudor Houses

For DT, Year 2 have designed and made their own Tudor houses following a design brief.

Children First Curriculum Launch Day, 11.10.18

Baking bread

For Science, we baked bread like Thomas Farriner. We used the language stretch, twist, bend and squash.

Gymnastics Festival, 7.11.18

A fantastic morning for Larch class at Rushcliffe School. A massive thank you to Rushcliffe Sports Leaders for teaching us so well.

Fire - friend or foe?

Year 2 were lucky enough to have a campfire in the woods. We even got to toast marshmallows. We are hoping that these experiences will help us answer our big questions - Fire, friend or Foe? What do you think?

Fire station visit

We were lucky enough to have West Bridgford Fire Service to visit. They showed us their equipment, let us on the Fire engine, taught us about fire safety and excitingly, burnt our Tudor houses to show how the fire spread in 1666.


We redesigned London so that it would be safer after the Great Fire. Here are some of our ideas.


The mystery is solved! The theme is the Great Fire of London.

The mystery continues...

After Year 2 had received their mystery box and investigated it thoroughly, they wrote a report about what they had found, why it came to Edwalton and what it might all mean. Read some brilliant examples below...

A mystery parcel arrives...

Today a mysterious parcel arrived for Year 2. The children were so excited to find out what was inside! We found some old maps of London, a portrait of a man, a loaf of bread, a quill, some ash and even a bottle and some cheese! What does it all mean? Stay tuned to find out!
