Class Two

Welcome to Class Two's page. In this class we have 24 Year 2 and 3 children. We are taught by Mr Attkins and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Flaherty. Our topic for this half term is called 'The Iron Man',  this topic is based on the story of the same name by ted Hughes.


Please take a look at what we have been up to so far this year:

Science  - Forces Hook Lesson

Today children were posed the question 'What do robots eat for breakfast?' Most children thought that robots would eat metal for their breakfast. They were then told that they ate small bits of metal (iron) every day. They proved this by crushing up Rice Krispies into a fine powder and then they ran a rare earth magnet over the powder. Some of the cereal started to stick to the magnet, this is because there was tiny bits of iron in the cereal.

Science - Testing Rocks properties

Today in Science we tested our rocks in different ways. We looked to see if they; fizzed when vinegar was added, floated in water, could be scratched by a pin and were permeable by adding water to them. These tests allowed us to work out whether a rock was igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic.

Science - Chocolate Rocks

Children consolidated their learning about the 3 different types of rocks (sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous) by creating their own 'chocolate rocks'. Firstly, to make their sedimentary rocks children took some grated milk and white chocolate and pressed it together to mimic the compaction and cementation that happens under water. They then broke it in half and looked at the different layers in their rock. Children then used heat and pressure (rolling the chocolate rock in their hands) to make a metamorphic rock. Finally, children put their last piece of sedimentary rock into some boiling water to make an igneous rock. The children had lots of fun making, and eating, these rocks!

Topic - Stone Age Cave Paintings

In our topic lesson we have been about cave paintings that were done in the Stone Age. We decided to replicate our own ones by using charcoal. We made it a little bit more difficult by doing it under out desks so it was more like a cave.

Science - What is Beneath Our Feet

Today we started our new topic in Science. To start the topic off we thought about what is underneath our feet and then we learned about the different layers of the earth. Once we had done this we created 'dirt puddings' to help us to remember what these layers were. 


The layers consisted of:

  • Under the earth's crust: A squirt of red ice cream sauce to represent the mantle, inner and outer core.
  • The earth's crust: A Digestive biscuit on top to represent the earth’s crust.
  • Bedrock: Some wafer thin chocolates to represent the bedrock.
  • Subsoil: Some instant chocolate dessert to represent the subsoil (it is lighter in colour as it contains fewer nutrients than the top soil and is densely packed and clay like).
  • Topsoil: Some crushed Oreos to make the nutrient rich top soil.
  • Organic Matter/Leaf Litter: Some jelly worms to represent the organisms living in the decaying organic matter/leaf litter.

Year 2 Hope Journey 

The year 2 children were invited to Upholland Methodist Church to learn all about the Christmas story from the characters who starred in it! They learned lots of information and had lots of fun whilst they were there. Have a look at some of the pictures from their time there underneath.

Florence Nightingale

In topic we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. We learned all about her life and how she improved the role of a nurse. We made a lamp like hers and got in to the role of her to see what it was like back in the 1800's

KS1 Sports Hall Athletics

On 17th November 6 Year 2 children went to Upholland High School to compete in the West Lancs Sports Partnership Sports Hall Athletics competition. They all had a great time and represented the school perfectly. The children did lots of different running, jumping and throwing events.

Times Tables Rock Stars Day

Today we launched Times Tables Rock Stars in school. Have a look at some of our photos from class below.

Science - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Today we have been looking at ways in which we can reduce, reuse and recycle our waste. We have learned about what happens to our rubbish if we do not recycle it as well and how when rubbish is incinerated it puts more greenhouse gases into our atmosphere.

Football Club

Years 3-6 started their football club on Thursday after school, they thoroughly enjoyed playing. Keep checking back for photos from this.


Years 1 and 2 started their football club on Friday, they enjoyed playing in the sun on the field. Below are some photos of them having fun.

Science - Climate Change

Today in Science we were looking at climate change. We completed an experiment that showed that the build up of greenhouse gases is making earth warmer. Children observed that the ice in trays with cling film over them (that act the same as the extra amount of greenhouse gases) melted faster than the trays with no cling film over them.

Maths September 22


Recently in Maths we have learning about hundreds, tens and ones in numbers. We are confident to work out how many there are in any given number. We have started to learn how to partition (split up) numbers in different ways.
