Mount Pleasant Primary School

Our Learning Journey


Welcome to Year 2 2021-22

 Autumn 2

We all had a fabulous time watching the pantomime at The Empire Theatre in Blackburn.  (Oh no, we didnt!) 


We had a visit from the local fire service.  They taught us all about how to keep safe at home and the importance of having working smoke detectors and an escape plan, in case of a fire.  Now we know that we need to use the back of our hands to check the door handle and to crawl out of the room to stay below the smoke because smoke rises upwards. 


Autumn Term

This half term we have had both Miss Brown and Coach Corey teaching us PE. With Miss Brown we have been learning all about dance and with Coach Corey we have enjoying gymnastics looking at balancing, jumping and rolling.

In English we have been reading Jim and the Beanstalk by Ramond Briggs. We have read the book and we have acted out different scenes as well as freeze framing different parts of the story. Here we are with out different freeze frames, beware some are particularly scary!

In Design Technology, we have been looking at Food Technology. We have found out how to use a knife safely and we have used it to cut different pieces of fruit up using the claw grip. We had designed what we wanted our fruit salads to look like. After we had chopped the fruit, we selected what fruit we wanted and created our own fruit salad. Finally, we ate it!
