World Book Day

For World Book Day, the Year 2 children completed work based around their guided reading book 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl. They made chocolate cake in their maths lesson after reading the chapter about Bruce Bogtrotter being made to eat a WHOLE chocolate cake! 

Whinlatter Forest - Learning about habitats

In science, we have been learning about habitats. The Year 2 children visited Whinlatter Forest to research a local habitat. We also looked at microhabitats. 

The Salvation Army - Other Faith Visit

The children in Year 2 visited the Salvation Army. They found out that it is not only a church but also a charity.

STEM Workshop

The children in Year 2 had a great time at Whitehaven Academy learning about all the jobs that link to STEM and taking part in a range of workshops. 

Mystery Jobs!

We have been lucky enough to have different people come and speak to us about their jobs. Wilma told us all about being a nurse and we compared it to Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. 


Gemma told us about working in a nuclear plant. We got to wear some of the protective clothing. It was very interesting. 

Pet Encounter

We were very lucky to find out about some amazing animals such as snakes and meerkats! 

Halloween Bingo

We worked with the Year 5 on our numbers in a game of Halloween Bingo. It was lots of fun. 

Mystery Reader

We have been very lucky this half term to have lots of 'Mystery Readers'. We have really enjoyed all of the stories. 

Geography Local Area Walk

In geography, the Year 2 children went on a local area walk to find physical and human features. They also used their compasses to look at direction and found a compass on the harbour. We could even see Scotland and the Isle of Man. 

Carols at the Library

The Year 2 children sang carols at the library. They even got to meet a special visitor! 

Wheelchair Basketball

The children tried their hand at wheelchair basketball. Nat explained to them how he had ended up in a wheelchair and how it had changed his life.
