Year 2


Welcome to Dove

Dove is one of our two year 2 classes taught by Mr Pool. Did you know Mr Pool has run a marathon? He also supports Cambridge United and is a keen fantasy football manager.

things to celebrate

  • We settled into Year 2 life well
  • We achieved a 10-minute run around the playground without stopping.
  • The class are now part of ‘The Dragon Squad’, after receiving a lovely letter from Andy Shepherd, the author of ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons’.
  • We completed three successful experiments in science. 

Our learning

  • We learnt about the planets in our solar system, the moon landing and the children wrote a biography about Neil Armstrong.
  • Our books were ‘The Dark’ and ‘The Tunnel’, the children wrote some fantastic narratives on these books. We also looked at ‘The King who banned the Dark’, and they wrote a persuasive letter.
  • In science we learnt about everyday materials and diet and health. We linked this to our Space theme by looking at astronauts and how they live in space.
  • In maths we have been learning about place value, and addition and subtraction.
