Attenborough - Year 2

Welcome to Attenborough Class!

Curriculum Evening October 2022

Here, you can find out a little more about what we are learning and getting up to during our very busy days at school...

Summer Term in Action

We had an amazing time trying out new physical challenges on scooters.

We loved visiting the library to choose our new books. We then spent time reading for enjoyment.

We developed our imaginations by creating sculptures inspired by Giacometti.

Spring Term in Action

Aspirations Week

In maths, we investigated the number and type of faces on 3D shapes, comparing shapes to others.

World Book Day

We had an amazing day dressing up as our favourite characters, playing The Masked Reader and designing our own book characters.

D&T - Flood Resistant Houses

As part of our work on extreme weather, we researched, designed and built flood resistant houses. The houses also needed to be free standing and we used a range of joining techniques to connect different parts of our houses together.

NSPCC Number Day

We learnt about the important work carried out by the NSPCC and how maths is so vital in our lives whilst celebrating NSPCC Number Day.

Woodland Walk

Attenborough class enjoyed a walk through forest school as part of our English unit based upon Little Red Reading Hood. We used our senses to describe what we could observe, hear and touch. 

Crazy Hair Day - January 2023

Our School Council children planned a really exciting start to the new term: Crazy Hair Day! The children were so excited by this and made a fabulous effort to impress.

Sacrament of Baptism

To finish our RE topic on Baptism, we visited St Frances of Rome church and met with Fr Nick. He showed us the Baptismal font, the Easter Candle and the Oil of Chrism.

Anti-Bullying Week 2022

To celebrate Anti-bullying Week we have been thinking about the theme 'Reach Out' and have discussed how important it is to be a good friend and to have good friends. We discussed the attributes we think are important to be a good friend. We designed our own odd socks to understand the importance of being unique.

Black History Month


The children enjoyed taking part in drama workshops to learn more about Rosa Parks and her incredible work for civil rights.

We had an amazing day at the Black Country Living Museum finding out about daily life in the past - from doing the laundry, going shopping and experiencing Edwardian school lessons.

The children learnt more about the life of a teacher whilst celebrating World Teacher Day.

Developing a love of reading through a trip to the library.


The children used photographs as a source to discuss similarities and differences between school life now and that of their class teacher.


We used the music ‘Morning’, from the Peer Gynt suite, as a stimulus for our sunrise paintings. These help to remind us that God is with us at the start of every new day.

Using rekenreks to secure our knowledge of number bonds.

In Science, the children searched a variety of habitats to see what might be living there.

The children voted for the animal they wanted to adopt from the World Wildlife Fund.
