Year 2 - Emerald City

Welcome to Emerald City!

Our Year 2 teacher is Mrs Lawson and our teaching assistants are Miss Horsfield and Miss Power.

Emerald City Class Information:

Our doors open at 8.35, entering through the KS1 cloakroom, and ready to start work at 8.45. We finish at 3.05 leaving from the office entrance door next to the hall double doors.

Please be prompt for pick up and drop off slots.

All children need a water bottle and a book bag in school every day (please no back packs).

P.E kits need to be in school at all times (P.E should consist of a red t-shirt, blue shorts and suitable plimsoles or trainers for outdoor P.E).

It is very important that all jumpers, book bags and P.E kits are clearly named so they can be easily returned if lost.

If you have any concerns or questions please phone school or speak to a member of staff and we will answer your question as soon as we can.


Thank you.

This is guidance for parents to how we set out some Maths problems in school. We use a scheme called White Rose Maths. This may come in handy for homework! Click on the documents underneath the pictures!

Remote/blended Learning

If children are not in school due to having to self isolate, we are using Google Classrooms for the children to access the learning that is taking place in school . The children are familiar with the layout as we access some of the lessons in school. Everyone has an email login and password to access their home learning activities. 

When the children complete an activity they need to mark it as done and upload a picture of the completed work.

Further details about Google Classrooms and how to access the remote/blended learning can be found on the remote/blended learning page. (Link below)

Knowledge Organisers

What are knowledge organisers?

A knowledge organiser is a set of key facts or information that pupils need to know and be able to recall in order to master a unit or topic. Typically, an organiser fits onto one page of A4, which helps children to visualise the layout of the page, which in turn helps them to memorise the information better.

How will a knowledge organiser help my child?

Knowledge organisers will be made available at the start of each unit to help them remember what they are learning and to help them to see the bigger learning journey in their subjects. Instead of forgetting previous learning, children will continually revisit and retrieve prior learning from their memories.

How will a knowledge organiser help me to help my child?

Many parents/carers ask us how they can help to support their children at home. 

The knowledge organisers have all the key information and subject vocabulary you will need to will help you do this easily.

Below are  the knowledge organisers for each term.

If you have any questions about the content of the knowledge organisers we will be happy to help.

Art-making letters using our bodies

D&T-Making strong bridges in teams

Painting plates and blowing ink in the style of Clarice Cliff

The Great Fire of London!

We have been learning about The Great Fire of London! Here are some questions to ask if your child to see if they remember what we have learned:

- When did the fire start?

-Where did it start?

-How long did it last for?

-What are some of the reasons it spread so quickly?

-Which reason do you think is the most important reason of why the fire spread so quickly? Why?

-Why did it take so long to put out?

-Who was Samuel Pepys? Why was he important?

-What did he bury when the fire was burning?

-Who was the King at the time of the Great Fire?

-Why do we not know exactly how the fire started?


In Science, we investigated the process food goes through to get to our plates. We stored raspberries in different places/conditions (fridge, freezer, window, cupboard and table) over a week, to see what would happen to them.

Look at our fantastic Christmas cards that we made in D&T (Design and Technology)! These are not just any Christmas cards, they have a slider mechanism which means they have a character that can move!

In our Geography we have been learning about continents and oceans! We worked in partners to match the jigsaw pieces of the world and label the continents and oceans.!

Look at our amazing castles that the children made as part of their topic research homework

PE and Science lesson! We looked at how exercise affects our heart rate and pulse and how this keeps us healthy.
