Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


The Year 2 classes are called Poppies and Lilacs.


In Poppies, our teacher is Mrs Moran and our teaching assistants are Miss Veli and Miss Dawkins.


In Lilacs, our teachers are Mrs Smith and Mr Bradshaw and our teaching assistant is Mrs Archbold.


This is the Year 2 timetable for the Autumn term.


Class Codes

In Year 2 we try really hard to use the school RICHER values in all that we do.


Our school values are:

  • Resilience
  • Independence
  • Caring
  • Helpful
  • Equality
  • Respect. 


In our classes we have designed our own class charter with rules which we think are important.


We always use our RICHER values:







Children who demonstrate good RICHER values are rewarded with dojos, special RICHER value stickers, and can even be chosen to be a RICHER value champion! 


The children have been learning about the characters who are based on the RICHER values.

* Can you match the leaves to the trees? 

* What does a plant need to grow?

* Will a plant grow without soil?

Remembrance Day

In order to acknowledge Remembrance Day, we created medals for a soldier, we wrote thank you letters, made a wreath using our handprints and completed a colour by numbers activity.

A Christmas Carol


On the run up to Christmas, it is a busy, fun and magical time of year. It's all gone a bit Christmassy here at River View! Here you will find out about everything we are learning linked to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. This year we will be following Mr Scrooge’s journey as he is visited by the three ghosts of Christmas. We cannot wait to share our learning with you. 

We received a parcel containing the book and acted out some of the scenes.

A Puppet Christmas Carol

We had a great day going back in time to a Victorian classroom. We sang the National Anthem, recited a poem, played with some traditional Victorian toys, chanting some numbers, wrote on a slate, made a thumb pot out of clay and wrote our names using a feather quill and ink.

Virtual Christmas Carol Workshop

We had a fantastic workshop learning about characters in the story of 'A Christmas Carol.'

It was really useful to know what Ebenezer Scrooge was like when we wrote a character description of him in our English lesson.
