Year 2

Twycross Zoo

As part of their topic on habitats, animals and plants, Year 2 visited Twycross Zoo. They took part in a classroom workshop as well as looking round the zoo at all the animals and the environments in which they live. The governors who accompanied the trip, congratulated the children on their exemplary behaviour and attitudes whilst on the trip.

Year 2 Maths

Have you ever been a human clock? How about a shape art creator?
In Year 2, learning Maths is fun! It is also very tasty.

Science lessons on Growth

As part of British Science Week, Year 2 were investigating growth. As you can see the children were very focused and very interested . We have some future budding scientists here at Stokes Wood.

Pumpkin Soup

In year 2 we made pumpkin soup from scratch …. We prepared all the fresh ingredients ourselves, cutting and chopping carefully and then simmering them all to make a delicious soup. Yummy!


In Science Y2 children have been estimating and comparing how tall plants can grow from a very small starting point as a seed.

Look how our plants have changed over time. Starting as small seeds and growing to a range of different heights.

Number squares

Using number squares , base ten and our magnificent thinking brains to develop our maths skills in Year 2.

Victorian Day at Beaumanor Hall

About 50 Victorian children and adults arrived at Stokes Wood one morning in September and travelled back in time to a Victorian school at Beaumanor Hall. As you can see in the pictures it was a fantastic learning experience, experiencing real life Victorian education as well as trying out all the Victorian household chores in the Victorian kitchen.
