More Titanic fun!

The children have been absorbed in their writing in English this week with learning some excellent skills to help them to write their own story based on the Titanic. We have had some fantastic descriptive writing, rhetorical questions as well as exclamatory sentences. Lots of new stuff which the children have put all their effort in to learn.


In Maths we have been looking at division. The children have learnt to do this on a blank number line by counting up. If the children would like to continue practicing at home then please could they solve problems that are dividing by 2, 5 or 10. To challenge your children you can ask them what the multiplication sentence is that links with the division sentence that they have solved. For example

20 ÷ 2 = 10      10 x 2 = 20

Here is an example we did as a class:


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Another busy week in Year Two!

Year 2 have written some wonderful diaries imagining they were a passenger on the Titanic. They have used excellent vocabulary to really bring their diaries to life.

In maths the children have been working really hard on solving division problems. This will continue through until next week. Please see the Abacus and My Maths online learning for the children to carry on practicing at home to help secure their understanding.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Titanic fun!

Year 2 have enjoyed reading Samson’s Titanic Journey.

They have had fun using role play to show how Samson would have felt when he heard the Titanic hit the iceberg! This learning will lead the children onto writing their own diary, imagining how they would have felt if they were a passenger.

In maths the children have been working hard on finding fractions of amounts including 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4. It would be really useful to the children if they continue practicing this at home as it is a difficult skill that they have to master by the end of year 2.

Examples of problems they could solve are:

1/4 of 8.      2/4 of 8.      3/4 of 8.

1/4 of 12.     2/4 of 12.     3/4 of 12.

1/4 of 16.     2/4 of 16.     3/4 of 16.

1/4 of 20.    2/4 of 20.     3/4 of 20.

The children learnt to share the amount into 4 equal parts and then identified how much was in 1/4. They then added the amount in two of the quarters to find 2/4.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Welcome back!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break.

The children have had a great start to the Spring term especially when we visited the Sea City Museum. Many thanks to all the parents who helped make the trip possible by coming with us. This has been a brilliant hook for our new Titanic topic, the children have shown so much engagement with wanting to learn more.

Thank you for all the wonderful home learning we are seeing linked with the Titanic including models, menus, tickets and fact files. It is lovely to see so much effort being put in by all the children.

We have all had a fantastic Titanic topic day with amazing costumes worn by all the children. They have applied lots of the knowledge they learnt on the trip as well as learning so much more.
