St Paul Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


My name is Mr. McCarthy and I will be the class teacher of Year 2 this year alongside Ms. Duncan. We are delighted to welcome back all the children to school to continue making learning a fun and enjoyable experience that can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. We look forward to a productive and rewarding school term.


During Black History Month, Year 2 are learning about the life of Rosa Parks. The children worked in groups to act out moments from her life. They were incredibly interested in and respectful of her story throughout.

Well done to our new Dojo champion of the week! Keep up the hard work!

In our Art lesson, Year 2 were learning about Frottage. They were using leaf rubbings to create their own piece of art work.

In Science, Year 2 have been learning about micro habitats. They identified micro habitats around the school as well as the creatures that live in them!

This week in Art, Year 2 were learning how to create rubbings using crayons and a variety of materials including lego blocks, leaves and fossils!

During our Art lesson, Year 2 were exploring how to make different patterns by using different materials. They were very proud of their work!

During our Literacy lesson, Year 2 completed a wordsearch including high frequency words. They were incredibly focused throughout and enjoyed the challenge.

In Maths, we have had fun revising how to solve addition problems. The children solved addition problems to complete a colour by numbers activity. As you can see, they certainly had fun learning!
