    Apologies to parents in class Y2S!  Homework and newsletters were not given out - sorry!

    Dear Friends and Families, 

    Here's a quick round up of what we've been up to recently...

    In Maths we've been learning division by sharing equally. We've also linked our knowledge of multiplication to really help us work out tricky questions. 

    In Literacy we've been scrubbing up on our reading skills, as well as adding to our knowledge of our wonderful language's grammar system. Keep up the good work Y2s! It will benefit all our writing and reading. 

    In Topic we continue to discover amazing famous people who changed the world. See if your child can tell you a bit about Grace Darling, Thomas Barnado or Alexander Graham Bell.

    We had a cracking time at the infant Spelling Bee, well done you super spellers! 

    have a great weekend, 

    Year Two Team

    It's been a busy couple of weeks here in Year 2, with lots of hard work and determination from our fantastic classes. 

    Here's a summary of what we've been up to; 
    • In Maths we have been exploring multiplication. It's really important for our pupils to learn their 2, 5, and 10 times tables, so any practise at home is valuable and appreciated.
    • In Literacy we have been honing our skills in description by learning how to use a thesaurus to find synonyms. We've also been learning to write in character in the 1st person.
    • Topic has been all about famous people from history. So far we have had some great discussions about how Harriet Tubman and Thomas Barnardo helped so many people in their lives. After half term we will study Florence Nightingale in some depth, with a whole day of immersion into her life and legacy. A letter has gone out with more information, please return the slip to school as soon as possible.
    Just a gentle reminder to drop off your children on the infant playground and to let them walk around and enter school independently. This will really help prepare them for their school day and life in the juniors. 

    Have a safe and fun weekend, 

    the Year Two Team.

    Hello and a very Happy New Year to all our friends and families! We hope you all had a restful and joyful break.

    This week we jumped straight in at the deep in with 2D and 3D shapes in maths. See if your children can name any shapes you spot whilst out and about at the weekend.

    In literacy we have been very busy. We wrote a recount of our holidays, studied poems and then wrote our own acrostic poems all about winter.

    In topic we began our new theme; 'Famous for more than 5 minutes' by studying the life of Harriet Tubman, who bravely helped hundreds of people escape from slavery in America.

    In ICT our classes have been programming bee-bots using algorithms. Techie stuff!

    Have a safe and lovely weekend.

    The Year Two team.
