Woodland Wildlife


Out topic for the Spring terms is Woodland Wildlife.  It is a science based topic that investigates animals and their habitats.  We will learn the basic requirements an animal needs to survive and think about how animals adapt to their surroundings.  We are really looking forward to visiting Horniman Museum in South London to take part in an educational workshop in March.


This term we will also be celebrating Chinese New Year, thinking about the traditions and meanings of this event.  Additionally, on 5th February 2019 we will join children from all over the country to take part in Safer Internet Day.  This year the focus is 'Understanding consent in a digital world'.  Every child will make a pledge to ensure they stay safe when online.



We were really excited to find frogspawn in our classroom on Tuesday 5th March.  We are watching them every day and writing diaries about what we have observed.  Keep checking back to see how they are changing.

Infant Agility Festival - February 2019

Infant Agility Festival - February 2019 1
Ten children from Year 2 were extremely proud to represent the school at the Dartford School Infant Agility Festival on 12th February 2018.  The five girls and five boys competed against sixteen other schools in a range of events that tested their ability to throw, kick, pass, sprint and jump.  Overall we finished in 4th place with 194 points but in 1st place out of all 17 schools for the 'Bowler' activity.  Congratulations Year 2 on an amzing performance.  Every one of you did your best and had fun doing so.

Riotous Royalty


Our topic in the first part of the Autumn term is Riotous Royalty. We are learning about the Kings and Queens of England and all the things they got up to! We have visited Leeds Castle and learned more about Henry VIII and his six wives.
