Welcome to Willow!


Miss Bermingham is our teacher with Miss Driscoll as our teaching assistant.
There are currently 24 children in Year 2.


Our final topic is all based around our school production ‘Mermaids vs. Pirates’.

  • Our class text is ‘The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch’ by Ronda & David Armitage, in which the children will produce a diary entry in the role of a main character. From here, the class have the opportunity to recreate the fisherman’s lunchbox through recipe instructions.
  • We will also dig deeper in poetry and recreate ‘10 things in a pirate’s pocket’.
  • Towards the end of term, the children will take part in a water safety week and explore all about the RNLI.
  • In Maths, it’s all about measuring; mass, capacity, temperature and time.
  • During humanities; we hope to use photographs to find clues as to what seaside holidays were like in the past. Alongside identifying features of a seaside holiday. By the end of topic the children will be about to discuss and label all the countries and their oceans.
  • In RE, Willow will be exploring what is the good news Jesus brings?
  • Finally in science, our focus is all about our bodies. Here, we will explore how humans grow as they get older along with how to eat a healthy, balanced diet and the importance of exercise.
  • Our SPaG focus explores adverbs with suffixes and indentifying tenses.
