Dahl Class (Yr 2)

Welcome to Dahl Class!

Class Teacher - Mrs Strong

Class Teaching Assistant - Mrs Bourne


As part of our Green Fingers topic, on Tuesday 21st March we will be taking part in an educational visit to Whinlatter Forest. We will be forest explorers for the day, discovering which plants and wildlife dwell in the forest. Please make sure you return your permission slips as soon as possible :)

Please remember that our PE days are Monday and Wednesday, we need appropriate footwear and a change of clothes. We are currently learning a variety of team based games.


It is encouraged that children read every night at home with another person. This could be with an adult, a friend or a sibling. Dojo points are awarded to children that read 5 times a week and record this in their reading records.

Freeze it!

Changing and separating materials

The Big Idea

We are going to investigate the science of freezing to make our own ice lollies and ice desserts. By doing this, we will learn all about solids and liquids and how a liquid can be cooled to make a solid and how a solid can be heated to make a liquid!

A Day in the Life

Things people do

The Big Idea

It can be fun to imagine what we want to do when we grow up. The world is full of lots of different and exciting jobs. But we should remember to celebrate the things we can do now – the hobbies and interests that we enjoy, and the learning we do at school to help us achieve our goals.


The art of learning

The Big Idea

Our brain is special because it does lots of amazing things. Once we understand how our brain works and what we can do to make it work even better, then we can improve the way that we learn.

Green Fingers

The Big Idea

We have been exploring plant life, why plants are important and what we can do to look after them. In maths so far we have been observing some plant progress by measuring accurately. In English we have been learning all about 'bossy verbs' and applying our new knowledge to writing instructions for other people to be successful growing their own plants. In topic we enjoyed our Muddy Monday and completely overhauled our class plant tub. It took many hands but we managed to make it look amazing! With lots of TLC we hope our plants will flourish!
