Monday 8th January 

It has been a great start to the half term. On our first day we explored our new topic around the world in 54 days. We danced in Indian, tasted food in China and listened to the sounds of the Amazon rainforest. In maths we have been investigating measurment. We really enjoyed measuring out the lengths of different animals in the world and comparing them to our selves.






Monday 18th December

What an amazing week to finish the term with!! We've had lots of fun doing Christmas crafts. We really loved having year 5 in to help us make Christingles. Year 2 made me extremely proud in the school nativity and especially in the Christingle concert, where they learnt their lines in one day!! I can't wait to start the next year with the same energy and fun. Have a great Christmas and New Year!



Monday 11th December

We have been working hard practicing our Christmas production ready for next week. It is going to be an awesome show! The children have been very successful in Maths this week, where we've been solving division problems which can be very complicated! I am really proud of year 2 for remaining so focused and determined in their work even though Santa Clause is just round the corner!


Monday 4th December

This week year 2 have all been super-stars. They have tackled their assessments with a positive attitude and have tried their absolute best. In Literacy they have decided to create a magical potion as Mrs Rowse has got a horrible case of Knight Fever. The rehearsals for the KS1 production have been lots of fun and we are looking forward to showing everyone our amazing performance skills. Get ready for an astounding production!


Monday 27th November 

What a week we have had! Our egg has hatched and the baby dragon has been causing trouble all over the school. We have written letters to Sir George to ask him for his help. We have also been tackling multiplication and with hard work we are succeeding.



Monday 20th November

We have had a brilliant week in Year 2! We have learnt a rap about different weapons used to attack castles and we have even created our very own catapults that we can’t wait to test. In literacy we have created our own dragons.  










Monday 13th November

This week we have been dragon experts after a mysterious egg was left in our messy classroom. This has inspired us to find out about lots of different types of dragons. We are also becoming speed readers! Each we will get a passage of ninety words to read. The aim is to read as many words as we can in 1 minute. We are sending these home each week to practise!  










Monday 6th November 

This week Year 2 have been working hard on adding numbers to 100. We have loved the challenge of working with bigger tens and ones. We are loving our new reading book ‘The Tunnel’! It is very exciting and we can’t wait to see what happens to the brother and sister. We are looking forward to making our catapults in topic so we can test how strong our biscuit castle walls are. We don’t think they will be strong enough to stop the enemies attack!


Monday 30th November

It has been such a lovely start back after the holidays! Year 2 have been very busy over the half term and have built some of the most amazing castles we've ever seen. They have also written stories alongside their castles, which are fantastic! We've taken our learning about castles a little bit further by building castle walls... out of biscuits. We learnt about the structure of the walls and how they were built for strength... and then we discovered how tasty they could be!! In maths we have finally cracked adding two 2-digit numbers and this has made subtracting even easier. 


Monday 16th October

What a great end to the half term! We have worked extremely hard over the last 7 weeks and we have earned a well deserved break. We have finally finished Flat Stanley and we liked that he had a happy ending. Next half term we will get to start a new exciting class book. That is not the only thing year 2 two have to look forward to with Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas all just around the corner. A big well done to everyone who got star of the week this half term; lets see who will be the next eight winners! Have a great half term!


Monday 9th October 

We have loved writing about a haunted house even though it was scary! We had some great ideas and have started to use lots of interesting words. In PE we are enjoying playing tag rugby and are getting really good at dodging and weaving. Ella was super skillful! It has been lots of fun exploring how castle walls are built. We are getting ready to test how string they are. Let's see who's wins!!  

Monday 2nd October 

What a great week! It has been British Values Week, and we've been exploring what makes us British. We talked about democracy, and we have decided on our class Leader. In science we investigated the different materials we could use to build a castle... we decided we'd build ours out of brick.


Monday 25th September 

This week we have been improving our writing and exploring conjunctions. We have some brilliant ideas and our setting descriptions are getting more detailed. In maths lots of us are enjoying a new challenge and moving onto ATS and ATG using Numicon to help our understanding. There has been lots of brilliant problem solving especially by Delilah who has taken every difficult question with an excellent attitude. Everyone has been trying really hard to stay green and it was a tricky week to pick the star so well done everyone!


Monday 18th September

It's been another great week for the Dreamers! In our writing lessons we have been looking at setting descriptions and using different word types (adjectives, nouns and verbs). We've focused on sentence structure, making sure we're including our capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. As a class we compared a Haunted Castle and a Princess Castle... surprise, surprise... the Haunted Castle came out on top!! Finding out about the different roles that people have in a castle is very interesting! In maths we've taken our knowledge of place value and applied it to count in 2s, 5s and 10's, and to order numbers. Our class is full of great mathematicians!


Monday 11th September 2017 

The children are settling in nicely to their second week and new routine at school. We have really enjoyed our brain breaks where we’ve been running the golden mile. It has really brought out our competitive sides, and got our hearts racing! Our coats of arms are taking shape and we have thought carefully about the colours and animals we are using as they have different meanings. It seems we have lots of brave Lions in year 2! In science we’ve been looking at different materials and we are hoping to use our scientific knowledge to succeed in castle building.  


Monday 4th September 2017

What an amazing start to year 2! We have loved hearing about all the exciting things the children have been getting up to over the holidays; it sounds like they've had lots fun!  In Maths we have been learning all about place value and how to separate a number into tens and ones. The children have really embraced this learning, and even though it was a tough start they have shown admirable resilience which shows through their success. Writing has been really interesting! We watched a fascinating video all about dragons, then spent time discussing what we saw in the video and writing a character description. We got some wonderful pieces of writing!
