Over the past two weeks, Year 2 have been exploring the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ as part of their new term topic. Watch the video below to see what all we have been getting up to. 

We have been learning all about toys in term 1B. We even shared our favourite toy with our friends. Have a look at some of our amazing toys and how they work. 

On Friday 10th December 2020, Ballymoney CIPS raised money for Save the Children by joining in with their Christmas Jumper Day. Have a look at some of the fabulous Christmas jumpers our year 2 pupils wore. 

We have really enjoying Term 1B in Year 2, learning all about toys. We explored how toys move, old and new toys and even how toys are made.

We are certainly getting into the Christmas spirit in Year 2. Doesn’t our class Christmas tree look amazing? 

In Term 1A we went on an Autumn walk and observed all of the seasonal changes. Take a look at our amazing collage, showcasing what we saw on our walk.

Have a look at the video below of our first term in Year 2. We cannot wait for lots more fun in Term 1B.


Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning. Here, at Ballymoney Model CIPS, our Primary 2 children engage in practical but meaningful activities to allow them to explore mathematical concepts. Here is what we have been learning throughout term 1A.


Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. During term 1A Primary 2 have been engaging in a variety of literacy tasks. We loved writing instructions about how to make a paper dog, Supertato and a rainbow plate.

Outdoor Play

Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world, but themselves. In Primary 2 we have been learning all about our 5 senses through outdoor play. We drew self-portraits, went on listening walks, made our own music and much more! Have a look at the video to see what we’ve been up to!

Play Based Learning 

Playtime in P2 is precious. Play builds brain pathways for thinking, creativity, flexibility, empathy and many other lifelong skills. We have been exploring our 5 senses during PBL. Have a look at some of the things we got up to.
