Class 2HMC

This half term we have been so busy reading, writing and enjoying maths. We have really enjoyed learning about poetry and performing our own poems...

We did find time to relax and meditate...

We have enjoyed throwing under arm and over arm in team games...

World Book Day

We had a lovely afternoon, singing and moving to the beat...


We walked to church today and looked at the features outside and inside. We were lucky enough to spend time looking at the many different parts of the church, including the alter and the many beautiful stained glass windows which tell us many stories.

Towers, tunnels and turrets

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a lovely break and are ready to start the new term with lots of new learning opportunities!

Mrs McCann and Mrs Thompson

We have been looking at differences between fiction and non-fiction books. We then identified features of non-fiction books...

We looked at different New and Old Testament stories before designing a book cover for our favorite ones...

Another busy week, with visitors big and small. We had Clive the Tortoise come into class for the day so we could find out about his needs... He loves tomatoes and keeps warm under the heat lamps. He enjoyed his adventure in our classroom.

More visitors during Clive's stay in 2HMC...

Rain didn't stop play when we visited Acorn Farm to learn more about animals and humans...

Street Detectives!


On Monday afternoon, we became street detectives, looking at roads, shops and our church whilst using a map to find our way around our local area.

We finished our Land Ahoy topic with a perfect pirate day! We found a message in a bottle with a map and followed it to find treasure! We performed pirate sea shanties to Year 3 in our classroom! What an amazing day!

What an amazing pirate ship our ship mate made at home! We found a message in a bottle in it...

We have had another busy week, investigating shapes that float, playing 'Captain's Coming' in PE, writing and making 2-digit numbers. We also had a lovely surprise when we had an unexpected visitor...

Look who came to see us...

This week, we have investigated which shape floats best. After stretching, rolling, squeezing and twisting, some of the children managed to get their boat to float!

Love to investigate

This week, we went to New Brighton and had a swash buckling time on the pirate ship with Pirate Cutlass and her crew...

New Brighton and the pirate ship

We tested different materials to see which would be the best for a pirate ship. The cardboard and paper ships went soggy as they absorbed the water. The metal and plastic were the best materials.

Welcome to 2HMC. What a busy time we have had so far...

We have been counting in tens and showing numbers in different ways.

We are reading Oliver Jeffers books throughout the year and at the moment, we are reading, 'The Day the Crayons Came Home'.

Also, we are learning about oceans that explorers visited alongside our topic of 'Land Ahoy!'

Welcome to Year 2
