    Funny Bones

    Our new topic is 'The Human Body'.  We are learning about the body itself and also how we can keep our bodies healthy.  In Art today we have looked at the human skeleton.  We listened to 'Dem Bones' on a video and then made our own pictures using cotton buds.  Here we are making our skeletons!





    Thank you to all parents and carers who have sent in medical forms and paid for the Y2 camp.  If you haven't yet done so please send them to school ASAP.  It is Infant Sports Day next Thursday.  Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school for this event.  We hope to see many of you there and are hoping for a dry, sunny afternoon!

    Many thanks for your continued support,
    the Year 2 Team

    We are looking forward to our Y2 camp very much.  Please return all permission/medical forms ASAP so that we can get ourselves organised for this exciting event!

    We have had a busy first week back. We have been paleontologists digging for dinosaur remains.  We had to be very gentle with the fossils and piece them together carefully to make skeletons, just like Mary Anning did!









     Here we are in the woods, trying to find trees with the same details as our hands!  We got a little wet but it was worth it!

    We are so proud of the mature attitude the children have shown this week whilst carrying out their Reading SATs. Every single child has given their very best and they should feel extremely proud of themselves!

    Next week, we will be carrying out the last of the SATs tests with the focus being on MATHS. There will be an arithmetic paper, which will ask children questions about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and also questions on fractions. The children could be asked about halves, quarters, two quarters, three quarters and thirds - e.g 3/4 of 24 or 1/3 of 18. There will also be a reasoning paper which could contain words problems, measures, shape, fractions, time etc.

    In Science, the children have been making grass caterpillars using pop socks and soil. The children will water these daily and watch the new grass grow!

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Just a short message to let you know the details for the Year 2 SATs.  We've told the children that they will be doing some special work in groups over the next two weeks but that it is nothing to worry about. We intend to keep it very low key to prevent any anxiety.

    Next week, all the children will have two reading comprehension papers ( on different days) which will be administered in small groups with the class teacher. The following week, we will do the same for maths (arithmetic and reasoning papers).

    You do not need to do anything differently over the next two weeks - but some early nights would help!
    We have sent home a reading comprehension - 'Staying Healthy' which is this week's homework.

    There will be no spellings now until after the holidays but please feel free to revisit the Y2 common exception words or any previous spelling rules.

    To celebrate the end of an era in the Infants, the Year 2 staff are currently trying to organise the Year 2 camp with the support of the Bradway Scouts - more information to follow!

    Have a lovely weekend!
