I hope you had a good rest during the holiday and are now ready for a new and exciting term as we head towards Christmas.  This term we are answering the question – Why did Queen Victoria visit Salford?


In our topic work we will be focusing on looking at what life was like back in Victorian times, learning about the similarities and differences between now and back in the 19th century.

What was Cross Lane like and how has it changed along with Salford as the years have passed?

Why are libraries and museums important places?

We have started reading the fantastic book – ‘Once upon an ordinary school day’ by Colin McNaughton.


How has your day been today?

Year 2 like the rest of the school had a fab time on Friday singing and dancing with the Pop Project as they took us on an amazing journey through the different music of the United Kingdom.

What is your favourite song?

Welcome to Year 2

It is hard to believe the holidays are a distance memory and we are already steaming head into our new school year.

This term we are answering the question – Who am I?

What makes each of us special and unique? How have we changed as we have grown and what things can we do to keep ourselves healthy and strong as we continue to develop.

What makes you special?

Can you draw, play football or ride a bike?  Or do you have any other hidden talents you would like to tell Year 2 about?

We are going to try some record breaking challenges to match the great success of Team GB at the Olympics –

Who is the fastest runner?

Who is the star reader?

Can you think of a challenge  for Year 2?


Across the school the reading challenge is continuing, let’s see if we can have every Year Two child winning a new book this term by reading at least once a night and being the best class in the school!
