Otters - Yr 2


               Welcome to Otter Class!       

We have 27 outstanding otters in our class, alongside Oscar, our class Mascot.  

 Otter class is taught by Mrs W. and supported by Mrs Parker. 



This term's topic is:


Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!

Do you?

That's good, because you're about to become an expert beachcomber.

Head to your nearest beach to look for unusual and interesting objects, using your senses to spot, sniff and seek them out.

Wriggle and Crawl


Grab you coat and pooter- we're going out and about on a mini-beast hunt!

Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs and see who's home.

On your belly, legs at the ready, it's time to wriggle and crawl!



Muck, Mess and Mixtures!

Let's get messy!

Muck and mess is good!

In fact, it's mega-marvellous!



Look at some of the exciting things Otter Class have been getting up to this term!


Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.

See the castle ahead?

Get ready to invade its mighty walls!

Shoot a projectile with an archer's aim!

Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower...

End of Topic Afternoon

To bid farewell to a fantastic topic, we held a castle themed afternoon.  We made crowns, shields and held a medieval banquet in the classroom.  We had Kings and Queens sitting at the top table.  Everyone else became Lords and Ladies and Mrs W. became the servant, serving everyone their food.

Year 2's Invasion of Lincoln Castle!

Friday 13th January


Wow, what an amazing day was had by all!


Year 2 children braved the cold and wind and commenced their invasion of Lincoln castle.  The moment they saw the castle walls they were so excited. We had a day they will never forget, we walked the battlements, crowned children- King, Queen, Lord and Lady, banqueted, became minstrels, jesters, knights and held replica armour.  The children wowed Lincoln Castle's Education Team with their knowledge of castles and the vocabulary they used.  We were so proud of them all.




Beat Band Boogie!


Step in time to the beat 1,2,3!

There are sounds all around: in the classroom and outside, just waiting to be discovered and played.

Can you make a loud or quiet sound, can you change it's pitch?

Come along, have some fun, step in time to the Year 2 beat!





Otter Class Band

The children had a fabulous time, playing their homemade instruments, in our class band.  We then joined forces with Fox Class and had a Year 2 band, conducted by Mrs Carlisle.

Remembrance Day 2016

We had a whole school assembly to remember those that had fallen in the line of duty.  Year 5 delivered a thought provoking assembly to remind us about the human sacrifice of war.  We then observed the one minute silence at 11am.

In the afternoon we made poppies as an act of remembrance.  We then talked about members of our own families who fought for their country. 

We rounded the afternoon off by listening to a range of military bands. 



Sunita came into school to talk about the Hindu festival of Diwali.  We learned about the story of Rama and Sita and how good triumphed over evil.  The class especially enjoyed learning the dance moves she taught us.





Ahoy there mi' hearties! 

Beware, beware, pirates are everywhere!  

We will be taking a learning journey through the exciting world of pirates.  

The children have already visited Jaffa Cake Island, braved treacherous pirates, found treasure and sailed away on Long John Silver's ship!

In literacy we have been reading The Night Pirates.  The children played the role of Captain Patch and the grown up pirates, and acted out the scene where Tom and the brave girl pirates steal their treasure.  The grown up pirates are terrified and hide and Captain Patch yells: "I'll tell my Mum!"

Pirate Day

Pirates descended across Year 2 on Thursday 20th October.  The children were pirates, even the staff became pirates!

The children participated in lots of exciting pirate themed activities and had a fabulous learning experience. 

Thank you to parents and carers for supporting the day by sending children in with fantastic costumes and outfits.
