Mount Pleasant Primary School

Our Learning Journey


Welcome to Year 2 2020-21

Spring Term

Since coming back from lockdown, we have had weekly practical Maths and English lessons. One particular lesson that we've done, is where we went outside and we had to give instructions to our partner. We focused on using the correct vocabulary such as forwards and backwards as well as using left and right turns. However, we certainly got confused with our left and right!

In Geography, we have been exploring different ways that we can look at the world and Clayton Le Moors. We looked at globes, atlases, Google Earth and Digimaps for schools.

In Computing, we have looked at what emails are and why we would use them. We then had to email Baby Bear with a drawing of Barnaby Bear on an adventure. We looked at attaching files to our email too and looking at how we can stay safe using emails.

Autumn Term

Throughout the Autumn term, we have enjoyed lots of Practical Maths lessons, where we are able to practice our Maths skills using different mathematical equipment in the classroom.

We love Science in Year 2 and particularly enjoyed carrying out an investigation into which material would be best to make waterproof coats and wellies for teddy bears from.  We discovered that rubber would be the most suitable material.  

For Christmas this year, we created a Winter Wonderland at the end of the Wildlife Path and Santa paid us a visit.  We also had an amazing party with games and dancing where we had loads of fun.  We really enjoyed making our fabulous calendars, cards and decorations too.
