    Another brilliant week for our pupils in Y2! They are putting in so much effort and hard work this year already.

    This week we have continued to investigate the crime in the woods by writing detailed descriptions of the suspect. The children have been writing WANTED posters in the hope of catching this criminal mastermind.




    In numeracy we have continued to build our knowledge of place value; see if your child can estimate a number of objects! We've also been tackling some tricky word problems that really increase our reasoning skills. Keep growing those learning muscles Y2s!

    The Year 2s have had a fab week!

    At the start of the week, we discovered that a crime had been committed in the school woods! Crime scene police tape cordoned off the area and lots of clues were left behind.
    We tried our best to piece together all the evidence. We found three bowls of porridge, a lock of golden hair, a photo of a family of bears and plenty more.
    Here we are in action...

















    Towards the end of this week, we had a visit from some very special people.
    We are lucky in year 2 to have parents who are fire fighters and they arranged for a fire engine to visit school. The children all climbed aboard and used the water hoses - some of us even got blown away by a powerful fan. Finally, we set fire to our paper houses to re-enact the events of The Great Fire of London. Both classes had such a blast! A HUGE thank you to the fire fighters for giving up their time and resources.




    Have a lovely weekend!

    Well, I think we're all ready for the weekend!

    Your children have worked so hard this week and have really earned a rest!!

    In Literacy, we have been putting into practice all of our new learning, We have written our own plans so that on Monday, we will be ready to write a setting description all about Pudding Lane. The children have used their five senses to give a more detailed description. We have encouraged them to use adjectives and prepositions to help them begin their sentences in different ways. See if your child can explain to you what a preposition is! 

    In maths, we have been continuing our work on place value. Please encourage them to practise counting in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s.

    If you were unable to attend the Welcome to Year 2 meeting, please pop in to say hi and we can let you have a list of spellings and answer any questions you may have.

    Here's a brief look at what we've been up to.





    Have a lovely weekend!

    Wow! What a week!

    Both of our fantastic classes have done really well at settling into new routines. 

    In numeracy this week, we have been looking at place value and showing our understand of number. If you could practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s with your child, this would be very much appreciated.

    In literacy, we have been learning all about adjectives and nouns - why not see if your child knows what an 'expanded noun phrase' is? Our focus for this unit of work is all based upon the events of The Great Fire of London.

    Take a look at what we've been up to this week.

    Have a fab weekend!!!

    Welcome back, everyone!

    We hope you've had a lovely summer and are ready and raring to go!

    Your child should have brought home a Year 2 welcome pack which provides more information about the year ahead. In this pack, you will find the date for the welcome meeting for Y2 parents which will be held on Wednesday 20th September in Y2WS classroom. We hope to see you all there. Also included are details of P.E sessions - please make sure your child has both indoor and outdoor kits in school.


    The children have settled well into Year 2 life and have produced some promising work. We can't wait to start our new topic on 'The Great Fire of London' next week.
    Don't hesitate to pop in and see us, ask questions etc anytime.

    Have a lovely weekend!
