Larchfield Primary and Nursery School

Our children are central to all that we do.

Year 2


We have had a great few weeks. The children in English wrote shape poems about what they might find in a sewer, for example, rotten food, empty cartons, flies and had fun smelling lots of different items (pretty stinky stuff). In Maths they have been learning about different ways to represent numbers, greater than, less than and equals. In Science we have continued our work on life cycles and the children thoroughly enjoyed explaining the life cycle of a frog in their class assembly. They painted their own versions of Vincent Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' which were very beautiful. We have currently been drawing his 'Starry Night' with small stokes using wax crayons. Later on next term these will be going home for you to keep. We have had International week, where we looked at Italy, their currency, flag, landmarks and tasted olives, chorizo, salami, parmesan and bread sticks. Many tried things they hadn't eaten before. It is also Black History Month and we have studied Lewis Hamilton, watching a short video of him racing in his Formula 1 car, learning about his childhood, achievements and his recent win in Japan.

Please look at the class pictures page for photos.


Y2 have had a great start to the term. They have been learning about Vincent Van Gogh and have just started their own paintings on 'The Sunflowers'. We have been practicing our 1 and 2 times tables and number bonds to 20. In English we have been creating magic potions where the children went out into the garden area to collect ingredients to make their own. Please see pictures under class pictures. I am look forward to reading all about them on Monday. Well done Y2 keep up the hard work smiley

Welcome to Year 2

Classroom Teacher: Mrs Johnson

Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Horsborough



Welcome back to a new academic year. We hope you have had a restful but fun packed holiday and the children are ready to start the term. We have lots of interesting learning planned, more information to come in the curriculum newsletter, so watch out for this. Please can children bring their P.E. Kits to school on the first day. 

On a separate note, we would be very grateful for any donations of unwanted knitting wool to use in school. Please could you hand them  directly to me please. Thank you in advance. And any Science resources that you are able to donate, (letter sent out at end of summer term detailing items) there will be a box in the main Reception area. Again thank you for those.

Lastly, we are looking forward to seeing the children bright and chirpy on Wednesday 5th September.
