Year 2

Welcome to Year 2



We are currently learning about Florence Nightingale.  What facts can you remember about her?   

We have been making clay medals for Florence Nightingale.

We also made a lamp like the one she carried around the wards at night.


In class we have read the story 'Handa's Surprise' by Eileen Browne. Watch the story below.

After reading the story we used Talk for Writing to learn the story with actions.  Can you remember the actions to tell someone the story?     

We have all rewritten the story of Handa's Surprise. In our writing we have included adjectives, questions and commas.

Look at our amazing writing!!


Welcome to our class! During the first few days of school we painted our self portrait. Look at our fantastic results.
