Take a look at the fun things we have been doing in Year 2 this year.


School trip to Smithills Farm - July 2023

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Smithills Farm on Tuesday. It was a fun-packed day! The children experienced feeding lots of animals and were then allowed to hold chicks and baby rabbits. They loved seeing the emus, Eagle owl and meerkats! An exciting tractor ride took them to feed some beautiful donkeys. Finally, they watched some cows being milked and had a ride on a donkey. All the children had a fantastic day despite the showery weather. Tifuh said, “It was quite wonderful because there were so many exciting activities”.
