Holly and Maple

Please click the files above to see our Medium Term Plan (MTP) and our Long Term Plan (LTP)

Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of Year 2! We have two classes called Holly and Maple. On a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning Mrs Sugden teaches Maple class and on a Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday we have Mrs Sharif to teach us. Mr Saunderson is the teacher for Holly and our teaching assistants are Mrs Battye and Mrs Begum; they will work with both Year 2 classes throughout the year – as well as Mrs Dinn and Mrs Shaikh. Year 2 are all extremely excited to be working together so that we can help each other during our SATs year. We are going to be extremely busy this year. We have so many different learning opportunities planned and we can’t wait to share them with you on our web page! Keep your eyes peeled!


We are really looking forward to this year and seeing what everyone can do. We encourage extra work at home and love seeing any projects the children produce.

See you all in class!

Autumn 1 - Skipton Castle

Skipton Castle

Year 2 visited Skipton Castle as part of our topic work.  We had a fantastic time exploring the castle and even got to see the dungeon and learn all about how people were punished hundreds of years ago. The children were a credit to our school with their lovely manners and good behaviour.

Autumn 2

Year 2 had a wonderful half term which started with a bang. We managed to produce some wonderful poems to go with bonfire night before looking into the dark world of Guy Fawkes and the gun powder plot. We followed this up by looking at the Great Fire of London and even wrote a diary entry from the perspective of someone who was there. The language choices were incredible and had you feeling like you were there with them! We also managed to make our own houses from the Great Fire of London using various materials.

In Maths we started to tackle the topic of multiplication to go with our addition and subtraction knowledge. Though difficult at first we managed to excel and even managed to pick apart word problems.

Spring 1

This half term we have been looking at Explanation Texts about our magical school. We started by using our science skills to determine what materials make up our school and why we would use them. We then managed to produce some lovely pieces that we put together as a class book.

We then moved onto stories and learnt about a super girl by the name of Matilda. We wrote some excellent character descriptions before turning our eyes on our very own story. Some of these were incredibly inventive with some very high level punctuation coming out from a lot of the children.

In Maths we looked at multiplication, division and money. We learnt how to use bar modelling to solve sharing and how we can use the inverse of these to find an original number. We managed to solve lots of function puzzles using all of the mathematical language we now know. After, in money, we looked at the value of coins and solved investigations on how to make certain values.

Spring 2

This half term we have been looking at into the forest and traditional tales. We started by looking around our local area and having a trip into our wildlife garden to give us all some ideas for our senses. We then managed to put how these senses were inspired in our writing.

We then moved onto creating an leaflet and explanation text for Harlow Carr. We used ideas from our trip earlier in the year to Skipton castle to show what features we needed before putting together our very own.

In Maths we looked at fractions and how we can use bar modelling to help aid us in this. We started to discuss the link between fractions and division and how we can use these to help solve word problems. We also managed to look at shapes including the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

We tried our best at the end of half term for Sport relief managing 175 laps of the school track altogether. We used this experience to solve an investigation on length and distance.
