What made the London fire great?

Year 2 Gingerbread House Challenge

As a gift to the children at Christmas, the year 2 staff purchased Gingerbread Houses and set the children a challenge of who could build the best Gingerbread house. The children each decorated their own part of the house and then tried to construct the house together. This was a great team building exercise and lots of sticky fun was had by all smiley

Welcome back to school for Term 3. 


This term our Essential Question is:- 

"Where can your imagination take you?"


We will spend time over the next eleven weeks looking at different places, both real and imaginary! Our English work will focus on the stories: Little Red Riding Hood, The Tin Forest and Jack and the Beanstalk. We will predict what happens, infer what characters are thinking and feeling, write character and setting descriptions, diaries from the characters and retell our own versions of the story. We may have a future author in our class! 

In Project work we will be focussing on Africa as a contrasting locality. The children will be studying maps and locate different continents, countries and oceans. They will be learning all about Africa through Dance, Music and Artwork. 


Plant, Animals and Habitats will be the focus in Science over the term. They children will identify many different habitats and the animals that live there. They will even build habitats of their own for animals to find and explore!



In Maths, Multiplication and Division, Statistics and Fractions will be our focus over the term. We will continually revisiting Place Value, Addition/Subtraction and Shapes though by linking all the different mathematical operations.   

Reading Awards!


Well done to all of our children who are reading at home everyday. Just a few pages or sharing pages with an adult each day makes a huge impact on your reading progress and understanding of stories. 


In addition to the whole school bronze, silver and gold awards, we are giving a small treat each time a child reads 5 times at home. Keep up the good work!

The Mayor's Visit

We had a visit from the lovely Mayor of Lincoln, yesterday. We really did enjoy seeing him and hearing about what it is like to be Mayor.

Wednesday 13th March

During Multi-faith week we visited Lincoln Mosque. The children were intrigued to see the Mihrab and Minbar and to hear about the Five Pillars of Islam. Thank you to the Imam, who showed us around and taught us more about the Islamic faith.
