Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Year 2

Well done Year 2 ...and Parents!  I have really enjoyed reading your emails and seeing the photos of your super work and brilliant activities.  See a selection below. 

I'm loving all the rainbows and sun shines! I am sure they will be a heartwarming sight for people as they pass through the village.  They have certainly made me smile and I have saved them as screen savers on my lap top. 

Great to see you out in the sunshine as much as you can be, keeping busy and enjoying the fresh air.

Lots of you are joining in Joe Wickes exercise class online at 9am, but if you want to try something different search for Go Noodle, Jack Hartman, Cosmic Kids Yoga or Less  Mills.

Have Fun!





Have a look at our  Art Gallery and  Year 2 Class video below.




Above are photos which show some of our home learning projects including Maths, History,  Design and Technology, and Geography. 

Where in the world does your food come from?  Do you know?  How do you think it might be transported here?

Did you see the FANTASTIC model of a castle (above).   Can you name all the different parts of the building?

These lucky pets are enjoying having their Yr 2 owners at home to play with and make a fuss of them.  Are you looking after a pet at your house?  Share your photos with the class!

Below we have Lamborghini and Ferrari, Henry and Lainey. Also a warm welcome to Hopper the cat! Daisy Belle the puppy is looking full of beans. and raring to play!

Our latest addition isn't really a pet but a surprise visitor, found in a cellar!

More pets coming soon!

Take a look at these tadpoles.  Logan has been making observations and recording how they grow and change.  Do you know the life cycle of a frog?

Keep the photos coming Year 2!  Click on the photos in the gallery to see what your classmates have been learning, including more delicious meals!  Maybe you will be inspired or inspire one of your friends to try an activity.


Following Olivia sharing her image of a mouldy raspberry, Logan has been making observations of a variety of objects  through a microscope and carefully recording his findings.

If you are interested by these photos but don't have a microscope maybe you could have a look at photos of everyday objects magnified on line.

Or, if you have a magnifying glass go on a garden safari and see what creatures you can find!





Click on the pictures to take a closer look at our amazing animal paintings! 

Can you spot  the different animals hiding in their habitats? These include a gorilla, an orangutan, a lion, a sloth, a dog, a panda, a tiger a rabbit, some penguins and a human.
