On this page you will be able to find out what we have been learning in school. This term our driver for learning is “Monarchy”. We will be learning about:

  • Castles as a home and how they have changed over time.
  • Where Castles were built and how that helped to protect the kingdom.
  • The lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
  • Comparing the lives and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria
  • King Charles III and the changes we will see as a result of his accession to the throne.


Our P.E. day is Wednesday and Forest School is on a Thursday  afternoon. Please remember to bring in named clothing and footwear for these activities. We will be visiting the library on a Friday.

This Friday, we enjoyed celebrating our very own ‘Coronation day’. We spent the day taking part in a range of royal activities, creating bunting for our royal party lunch and we even witnessed our very own coronation!

We enjoyed wearing our pyjamas and raising money for Children in Need this Friday!

What a brilliant Arts Week we have had! The theme of this years Arts Week was Diwali and we have loved learning about the festival through art, dance and music.

In literacy this week we have been helping poet Shirley Hughes write some new poems for her latest poetry book! We then recited and performed them to the class!

This week we have been preparing to write non chronological reports about Portchester Castle. We worked together to collate our research.

We had the best day exploring Portchester Castle on our school trip this week. We loved finding out about the castle and exploring the local area.

This week we walked to Basing Woods and looked for signs of seasonal change!

It’s been great getting back to our Forest School sessions this week!

This week we were shocked to discover an abandoned party in our classroom! It turns out it was Billy and the dragon! We have enjoyed beginning to explore the text this week.

As part of our Belonging Week, we created our class charter that is displayed in our classroom.

What a brilliant start to Year 2 we have had this week. We have loved getting to know our new class mates and explore our new classroom too!
