Apologies for the technical hitches with Mathletics - not sure what went on there! Anyhow, all back up and running now! Thanks for your patience.

Homework 18/10/19

admin on: Class 2

What a wonderful week we've had, finishing with The Big Draw today. The children have been so enthusiastic about Amy Johnson - so hopefully they will enjoy the homework I've set in homework books this week.

On Wednesday we had a bonus PE session with Georgina from the tennis club, she was talent spotting and we all had a great time. She chose Freya as someone with great potential - so well done Freya!

Mathletics homework is about place value and adding/subtracting, please help your child to complete this.

I look forward to seeing you all next week at parent's evening!

Homework 11/10/19

admin on: Class 2

We've had another fabulous week, despite the rain! This afternoon we've been getting 'stuck in' to some papermache:

Home for this week is on adding and subtracting for Mathletics and in homework books you'll find some words that we have been working on in class. Please help your child to create sentences using these words, concentrating on capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. 

Also - we are short of cereal boxes, we need another 7 by next Friday if possible. Thank you!!

Have a great weekend!

World Mental Health Day - Thursday 10th

admin on: Class 2

7th October 2019

It is World Mental Health Day this Thursday and we are going to be raising money for Young Minds, a charity which supports young people with their mental health. It is a key focusing point on the School Governments agenda to promote the health and well-being for children in school. The Minister of Health and Well-being, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Miss Hemingway will be selling yellow ribbon badges for 20p on Wednesday and Thursday break times. We ask the children to then wear them on Thursday to show their support.All proceeds will be donated to Young Minds. Here is a link to the Young Minds website: https://youngminds.org.uk/

Look out for staff wearing yellow on #HelloYellow Thursday! 

(Written by the Minister of Media, Katie-Belle)

Homework Friday 4th October

admin on: Class 2

Welcome to the blog! 

It feels very autumnal now and the children have finished some beautiful autumn pictures, which have gone on display. Shackleton's journey is coming to an end, but this week we wrote a diary entry in his words. I was so amazed at the beautiful sentences the children were using. We learned about the conjunctions 'and, 'but' and 'or', so the children were really trying to use those in their writing. In maths we've been weighing and measuring as well as looking at capacity - I'm pleased to report that we had no spillages! This week's mathletics is all about measuring again and homework books include an activity on nouns. Keep up the great work with regular reading - I love reading your comments in the reading diaries. 

Could I ask children to bring in a cereal box, this is for an art project coming up in the next few weeks. If you can bring in more than one, then that would be fantastic.

Thank you

Homework 27/9/19

admin on: Class 2

We've had another great week, here in Y2, despite a few sniffles here and there. In maths, it's been all about measuring and we've had great fun measuring each other. We even measured Shackleton's and Columbus's feet! This week I've set some Mathletics assignments based on measuring. These will be live until next Friday - please encourage your child to complete these as they really reinforce the learning that we do in the classroom - most children are doing this regularly, but some are not completing everything. If you have any problems logging on, then please do let me know.

In homework books, you'll find a few activities on 'common exception' words - these are words that the children need to be able to read and spell.

Have a great weekend!

Planting science experiment

admin on: Class 2

26th September 2019

Today, we started our science experiment where we are comparing how seeds and bulbs grow in four different conditions. These are sunlight and water, sunlight but no water, no sunlight and water, and no sunlight and no water. We have planted our bulbs and seeds and will see how they progress over the next four weeks.

Visit for International Day of Languages

admin on: Class 2

26th September 2019

Today, for International Day of Languages, a parent came and spoke to the children about her country of birth and taught the children some Hebrew. The children learnt the alphabet and certain words in Hebrew. This was very interesting and she even brought in some books that were from Israel including The Very Hungry Caterpillar. All the children enjoyed themselves and we would all like to thank her very much for taking the time to come and talk to them.

Homework 20/09/19

admin on: Class 2

What a great week! We've really enjoyed writing about Shackleton's ship 'The Endurance'. Thank you once again for your commitment to homework and reading records, I've loved reading all your comments.

I've set some new Mathletics assignments for the children and a comprehension in the homework books - you can do this a number of ways. Either totally independently, or reading the passage and your child answers the questions - which ever works for you.

Enjoy the sunshine and the weekend!

Mrs B!

Reading in Year 2

admin on: Class 2

We are settling into our new routine in Y2, which involves lots of opportunities to read. I thought it would be good to tell you all about them...

Children are encouraged to bring in their scheme book and reading record everyday. In our morning literacy carousel (Mon-Fri, 9-9:30am), one group of 6 children will change their books and read 1-to-1 with an adult. Another group of 6 children will read in a guided reading session with the teacher. This is a great opportunity to work on skills like prediction, sequencing, inference as well as expression, fluency and pace. This session is recorded in your child's reading on a specific guided reading slip which highlights everything we are looking for in a Year 2 reader. Obviously, these skills build up over time and we are unlikely to see all the targets in one session. In this same session, children have a chance to practise their handwriting; when they have finished they can have some quiet reading time and access the reading corner or my personal library. This book is proving very popular with the children...

We do an Everybody Reading In Class (ERIC) session on Monday afternoons and the library is accessed on a Wednesday. In the library, the children always chose their own books, so sometimes these maybe above their level of reading. Please read these to/with your child as you see fit. 

We grab every opportunity to read! Children can read from the board, read out their own work, read instructions/questions in other subject like maths and history. In Year 2, we love to read! 

Thank you for supporting your child with their reading journey, although we have all these opportunities to read in school, nothing beats cuddling up for a bedtime story at home!
