Finding fractions of amounts!

This week in Maths the children have been busy finding fractions of amounts. This included 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4. They have been really committed to working hard to solve lots of problems. Here is an example of how the children have been showing their workings out in case they would like to practice more at home.


In English the children have continued to enjoy the story of Queen Victoria’s Knickers. They have been writing excellent exclamatory sentences and questions which they will be including in an advert for the Queen’s Knickers at the end of our unit of work.

2A have their music concert on Monday 3rd April at 11am in Elephant class. All families welcome to come and watch their children perform the songs they have been learning over this half term.

Here is the RE weekly newsletter that you can share with your children over this week coming.


We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Year 2 Learning.

The children have had yet another busy week of learning. They have enjoyed creating their own tally charts and pictograms by counting the amount of skittles in a packet and grouping them by colours in maths.

The children have also had lots of fun reading about Queen Victoria’s Knickers in English and learning about how we can use suffixes to describe which knickers Queen Victoria would like the most! It bought lots of fun and laughter to our writing.

Please continue to practice spellings with your children and encourage them to read a small amount everyday.

Here is the weekly RE newsletter which you can share with your children.


Just a reminder 2A have their music concert on Monday 3rd April at 11am in Elephant class. All families are welcome to come and watch the children perform the songs they have been learning over this half term in music.

Have a lovely weekend.

CAFOD Fundraising

This afternoon we have had lots of fun fundraising for CAFOD. We have estimated how many fish in a jar which has made a link to our maths learning in year 2.


The children also enjoyed being creative by decorating a fish in aid of CAFOD’S theme this year for Lent where we are raising money to buy fish for children in countries less fortunate than us.




We want to say a huge thank you to all the families who donated money to CAFOD, it is greatly appreciated.

Please remember our Liturgy is on Tuesday 14th March 2017 at 10.15 in the hall. We welcome you all to come and join us for this.

World Book Day and King and Queen’s Day!

What a busy week year 2 have had this week.

We have had lots of fun dressing up for World Book Day and exploring books. The children talked about what they liked and disliked about stories and the reasons why they thought this. They also compared the similarities and differences between fairy tales. These are excellent skills to develop in year 2 which helps with their reading.

Our topic day was also lots of fun with all the children engaged in lots of History activities. They have learnt lots of facts about the Queen’s of Britain which they can apply to their home learning which has been sent out to all the children.
