Welcome to Year 2!

We've all had a fantastic start to the new school year and the children seemed to have settled really well.
Please tell your children that we are really proud of them!
In Topic, we are learning all about the Great fire of London and comparing present day London with that of the past.
In Literacy, as you may have heard, we discovered that a 'crime' had been committed in our school woods. We went outside as a year group to investigate and looked at the evidence that had been left behind. PC Blake, our local policeman, was unable to attend this crime scene so instead asked us to describe what we saw as accurately as we could. Plenty of adjectives in our writing!!
In Maths, we have been learning all about the value of digits in 2 digit numbers and have also practised counting in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s. We have also tried adding 10 to any number - we know that the it is only the tens digit that changes and that the ones digit stays the same!
A reminder that spellings will be sent home every Monday and children will be tested the following Monday. Please ensure spelling books are brought in each week.
Another reminder that there will be a drop in session straight after school on Wednesday 19th September in Y2S where we will tell you a little bit about life in Year 2.

Here's a little taster of what we've been up to . . .

Have a lovely weekend!
