Lapwings – Year Two

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

Here are some photos of our topic launch. Our class had an amazing time when we came back to our classroom after assembly to find Miss Maddocks had turned our classroom into a beach! We talked about lovely seaside holidays that we have been on in the past and are looking forward to in the future. We explored different holiday destinations in the UK and why we call the coast, the coast! We also began to look at what seaside holidays looked like in the past.
Here are some photos of us having a great time! For more photos please view out gallery.



The Outwoods Great British Bakeoff

What a fantastic day Year Two had today!   Today was the final for the Outwoods Great British Bake off.

It began with the children using the design that they had made for their homework at the beginning of term.  They baked and decorated cupcakes with their designs on the top.

The children worked so hard and all of the finished cupcakes looked absolutely fantastic.

But there had to be a winner.

Max McKerlie was crowned the Moorhen’s Great British Bake off King for his fish and chips dinner design  and Logan Tunnicliffe was crowed the Lapwing’s Great British bake off Queen for her Union Jack flag.


The children invited their parents  or other family members, into school for the winner’s presentation and to enjoy one of the cupcakes with a nice British cup of tea.

A Celebratory Evacuee Tea Party  16.2.18

Our class enjoyed a wonderful evacuees tea party today, celebrating the end of a wonderful topic.  Our “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” topic has been just fantastic, the children have all really engaged with the book and really loved it.

The children loved dressing up and  looked fantastic in all their costumes.

During our party, there was also time for a little bit of dancing too.


The children experienced what it was like to have to live on rations today.  After being given their ration books, the children had to select carefully from a limited number of ration items to create their afternoon tea.  Tea, jam, cream ,scones, sandwiches with various fillings and tea cakes were all on offer and they had to make some difficult choices.

Design and Technology Open Afternoon

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and extended family, who came to support children in Year 2 on Friday afternoon.  The children once again, thoroughly enjoyed themselves working with their family members and there were some super models of gas masks and Anderson shelters made.



“Hey Ewe!”  – The Year Two Christmas Production.

Well done to all of the children who worked so hard to make our Christmas production a huge success this year.  The snow did not stop us……eventually performing our show and both performances were brilliant.
All of the children were in fine voice for our performances, remembered all of their lines and looked fabulous.We even made it into The Herald.

Please view gallery for more photos.




These are a selection of wonderful photos from our Great Fire of London topic showing our ‘family groups’. The children were put into family groups as different groups of people working in London in 1666.

Some children were black smiths and others green grocers but they really enjoyed dressing up and experiencing life in London in the 17th Century. The children produced things as part of their family trade to understand some of the things available to people living in this time period.




Here are some pictures of our very special visitor Mr Race painting some poppies as part of our Year 2 Remembrance art work.


The children gained so much from seeing an artist teach different techniques and styles first hand.

It was also a fantastic way to discuss and remember those who bravely gave their lives.  The children enjoyed learning about why the symbol for remembrance is a poppy, because of them  growing in the battle fields of Europe.



Here are some photos of our fantastic trip to RAF Cosford as part of our Up, Up and Away topic.

The children really enjoyed the visit and took a lot from seeing the planes and helicopters first hand!


We had a brilliant day comparing and identifying different planes and features of things that fly.
