Welcome to 2AM

Welcome to our class page!

Working in 2AM this year are Mrs Murphy and Mrs Austin-Peregrine!  We are really enjoying working with the children and are so excited about the year ahead!

This year the teaching will be shared. Monday morning and all day Tuesday and Wednesday Mrs Murphy will be teaching and on Monday afternoon and all day on Thursday and Friday Mrs Austin-Peregrine will be teaching.

PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and the children will all need their PE kit to be in school everyday please.


Please can you try and listen to your child read every night and record this in their reading record.  As like last year, the reading books will be changed once the children have read all of their book.  It would really help us if you could write down when the book is finished too so we know to change it.  Everyone in Key Stage 1 will take part in our 100 Reading Book Challenge!  Every time your child reads, they get a square coloured in, in their reading record and they can get a reward for reaching different amounts.  Last year some children even got onto to our 200 Reading Challenge!

If you would like to ask any questions or see any of us, then please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.


Thank you for your support,

Mrs Murphy and Mrs Austin-Peregrine.

Autumn 1

During this half term in Year 2 we have been doing a history topic and have been learning all about famous explorers past and present. The children have thoroughly enjoyed role playing as Robert Falcon Scott in the Antarctic, Learnt songs about Neil Armstrong and experimented with instruments to make the sounds of an astronauts day. One very wet Monday the children even did some exploring themselves of their local woodland listening for sounds, looking for Lancaster’s landmarks and discovering the types of tree that are growing in the woods. They then made their own ships like Christopher Columbus and Ellen McCarthy and tested the strength of the ships and had fun racing them.  To top off their learning the children have also made some fantastic vehicles at home to show how explorers travel on their journeys.
