Our new topic is 'Africa'

We will be kicking off the topic with a safari experience in the first week back.

11.10.19 Thank you to all Parents and Carers who attended our 1st class assembly of the year. Also, a huge well done to the children who worked really hard to put on a good show.

In reading, our next book will be: The Queen's Hat by Steve Antony. This is another book set in London.



We will be able to compare similiarities and differences between this book and the other books we have read so far this half term.


Today in our maths lesson, we looked at the importance of applying number facts to numbers in the tens. For example, we know 4 + 4 = 8 and we can apply this to the calculation 40 + 40. We are just adding 4 tens and 4 tens instead of ones, which gives us 8 tens and therefore 80. This knowledge and understanding helps to improve efficiency when adding and subtracting numbers that are 2 digits.


Our current maths focus is finding 2 more and less. This is easy to begin with when we start from 0 ( 2, 4, 6, 8) but can be trickier when we start from other given numbers.  We have been using 100 squares and practical objects to help us. Can you complete the sequence by adding 2 more each time?


53 55 ? ? ?


We have also been looking at finding 10 more and less. Can you complete the sequence by adding 10 more each time? Look carefully at what is changing - is it the ones or tens column?


33 43 ? ? ?



Spelling Lists went out home with your child today. We are using our new spelling platform (Spelling Frame) as much as we can and hope it will really help children improve their spelling. Therefore, if you have any questions about the website or if you are having any problems, please speak to a member of the Year 2 Teaching team and we will be happy to help you.

Thank you smiley


Thank you parents and carers for helping your children settle into their new year group. Now we are all settled and so we can start our morning lessons on time, we ask that you say goodbye to your children at the door and do not come into the classroom unless there are any issues or you need to a member of staff.

Thank you smiley


Year 2 pupils will have PE every Wednesday - make sure PE kits are in school on this day.


We hope all of our new Year 2 pupils enjoyed their first 3 days in their new year group -  we are looking forward to a super year ahead.
