Year 2 have been writing Wanted posters for these sneaky, suspicious and mischievous pirates! 

We are really proud of our writing!

Have you seen them anywhere?

Pirate Instructions

Our non- fiction unit for this term has been instructions. We have been doing lots of different pirate crafts in Topic and then writing instructions for how to make them in English. We have made an eye patch, a pirate hook and some pirate’s gold!

What was it like to be a pirate?

Key Stage 1’s topic for the Summer term is; What was it like to be a pirate? Our pod has been transformed into a pirate’s deserted island.

To celebrate the launch of our topic we held a ‘Wow’ day were we became pirates for the day!

It was lots of fun being a pirate!


Crown Jewels Exhibition

To end our topic, ‘What makes someone Royal?’, Key Stage 1 hosted their own version of The Tower of London. We displayed our crowns that we had made and held a Crown Jewels Exhibition. Our parents came after school to have a look and they were very impressed. We also sold jeweled biscuits that we had made to raise money for our next immersive learning project.

The day before our exhibition we had a very exciting delivery! It was a letter from the Queen’s Lady in Waiting. We also put this on display for our parents and they were very impressed!


Maths is Fun

On Thursday afternoon we invited parents and carers in to Key Stage 1 for a ‘Maths is Fun’ session. In year 2 we worked with our parents and carers on division challenges. We used objects for the green challenges, drew our answers for the amber challenges and used  mental methods for the red questions.

When we had finished, we worked on our reasoning skills with some challenge questions. We had a brilliant afternoon!

2D Shapes

In Miss Stathers’  Maths class this week we have been learning about 2D shapes. We have counted the sides and vertices on shapes and learned how to draw them. Then we looked at vertical lines of symmetry.

We had great fun making a line of symmetry by folding shapes.


Then we drew lines of symmetry on shapes.

Next week we are looking at 3D shapes.

Royal Portraits

This term in key stage 1 we have been looking at a the topic of ‘What makes someone Royal?’ As part of our topic we have been looking at the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Being The Queen, Elizabeth II has had lots of portraits painted in her image, so we thought we would give this a go.

In art, we explored a range of different media to create portraits of The Queen, including: painting, sketching, pastels, collage and computers.

Here is what we created.


You could create a portrait of The Queen at home.

How many different ways can you do it?

Crayons? Hama beads? Pasta? Chalk?

The possibilities are endless!

Royal Portraits

Key Stage 1 have been painting portraits of a member of The Royal Family. Can you guess who they have painted?




We have displayed them in our castle for everyone to be able to see!

Safer Internet Day

For Safer Internet Day  this year, Key Stage 1 looked at a story featuring Buddy the Dog. He helped us to learn how to stay safe on the internet. We wrote our own internet safety messages for Buddy.
