Our Lighthouse Projects

We all created a lighthouse project for homework and then we had an exhibition in our classrooms for all of our parents to come and look at how amazing they all were.

Science Show  

We loved watching and helping out with lots of different experiments and investigations at The Science Show.  The Mentos and fizzy pop experiment was definitely our favourite! 

Our amazing, fun-filled trip to Manchester Runway Visitors Centre

 What an amazing day we all had:

Spring Term

R.E. - Our Mosque Visit

We enjoyed a very informative and fun visit to the Islamic Centre in Accrington where we learnt lots of new information about the religion of Islam.


Science - Heart Rate Experiment

As part of our 'Animals including Humans' unit, we have been learning about how exercise helps to keep us healthy by raising our heart rate.  We measured our resting heart rate first, then we ran quickly for 3 minutes and measured it again to see what effect it had on our bodies.

PSHE - Teamwork

We worked together in teams to complete different tasks in the classroom.  We talked about how everyone has an important part to play in a team and how working together well gets the job done quicker!

Design Technology - Pizzas

We all really enjoyed designing and making our pizzas.  

Our Amazing Production - Tuishi Pamoja

Autumn Term

Fire Safety Talk

This term, in Year 2, we have enjoyed many different and exciting activities and opportunities at school.  In October, we had a visit from some Firefighters from Hyndburn Fire Service.  They told us all about how to stay safe and what to do if there was ever a fire at home.  Some of us also got to dress up and act out some fire safety scenarios.     


Forest School


Both classes enjoyed half a term each of outdoor learning through Forest School sessions.



As part of our Science unit this term, we carried out an experiment to see which would grow best in our classroom; Seeds or Bulbs.  We all helped to plant some bulbs and seeds in each group and we looked after them carefully for the next few weeks.  We were very careful to make sure that the test was fair and that we treated all the plants in the same way.  In both classes, the bulbs grew better and were stronger and healthier than the seeds.



We enjoyed so many different festive fun activities over the Christmas period, which included: Christmas Jumper Day, A Santa Dash, Christmas Dinner, Making calendars, cards and decorations, A visit to the Winter Wonderland and, of course, our wonderful Christmas Party.  It was a very busy but amazing time for all of us:
