Year 2

Easter activity challenge sheet

Weekly remote learning task w/c 30th March

We would like to invite the children to watch Harold’s diary twice this week (see below). 

After watching, we would like to ask them to write their own diary entry. Remember the features of a diary: start with the date and ‘Dear diary’. Write interesting sentences and use good adjectives when you describe what you’ve been up to. When we look at your work afterwards we’ll also look for punctuation. If you want to challenge yourself, watch Harold’s Daily Diary every day and write your own diary entry every day! It’s a good way to write about your feelings as well as exciting things you’ve been up to. 20 years from now children will learn about this time in History. Your diary entry could be something they’ll look at to find out what it was like to be a child during the Corona Virus Pandemic!

Please email your diary entries to


Harold's Daily Diary and resources for parents and teachers.
Harold – our happy, healthy giraffe mascot and a favourite with children – will be posting a daily blog: Harold’s Daily Diary – this started last Monday, 23rd March at 9am! Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in activities which will be family-friendly, varied and tailored to all ages.

Follow Harold on @CoramLifeEd (Twitter) or @CoramLifeEducation (Facebook) each day to see what Harold is up to!

Feel free to share the link with friends and family– it’s already live and Harold has put a little message on it!




Year 2 Topics 2019/2020

Welcome to Year 2.  We are going to share our exciting work and experiences with you this year on our webpage.  We hope you will see how much fun school is and the wonderful learning topics that we get to experience.

Towers Tunnels and Turrets

Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!

This term, we will visit a real castle to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two!

We had an amazing trip to Colchester Castle to explore towers, tunnels and turrets

We are learning all about towers, tunnels and turrets. Here is some of our writing..... We are in the process of making our own castles too.

Beat Band Boogie

Boom, boom, boom! Here comes the marching band. This sound is loud! This one is quiet..... sssshh, listen up!  What can you hear?  What's making each one? We will explore these and other questions in our music topic this term.

We have made guitars, watched a band play at another school, listened to an Opera singer in our classroom and a dad came to play the flute for us! What an exciting topic

our new topic is 'Street Detectives'

We are going to be Street Detectives.  We are going to explore our local environment. We have invited some important people to come with us.  We are going to explore our streets and find out how they have changed over the years.
