Year 2 KR

Welcome to Y2KR

In Y2KR we try our best and we never give up :)


Do you know what happened on the 6th October 1854?

Ask our Y2 children! We have been researching about a local historical event which happened in Gateshead. It was called 'The Great Fire of Gateshead'. We have used Ipads, diary accounts and photographic evidence to ask and answer questions. This fire killed and injured more people than the famous 'Great Fire of London'. We visited Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside to see where the fire had started and used our geographical knowledge to locate landmarks.




In Maths, we have focused on securing our place value knowledge and investigating different methods to add and subtract 1 and 2 digit numbers. We have been using the CPA approach to embed the learning and develop our problem solving skills. Below is an video example to show one of the methods we used when adding and subtracting numbers, this method is adding/subtracting using a empty number line.  We are using a mastery approach in Maths to embed and create more depth to our learning. We have used what we have learnt towards reasoning and problem solving challenges.

We update our Twitter page regularly so remember to check Twitter so you can follow what your child gets up to during school.
