Our Learning

This week we have been having a go at estimating answers to addition problems by rounding numbers up or down to the nearest 10. Once the children got the hang of this new skill, they began to really enjoy it!

In RE the children retold the story of Pentecost by acting it out in small groups.

The children have finally published their letters in English to the headteachers in the local area informing them how to stay safe in the sun. Once again the children have produced beautiful writing.

Hope you all have a wonderful half term break.

Fun with spelling.

This week the children have enjoyed lots of sensory learning within their spelling lessons. They have practised writing words in glitter and in shaving foam.

We have been looking at our new topic Crowns and Corgie’s!

The children have learnt so far all about the Royal Family tree as well as this they have made a welcome card for the new Royal baby.

Please encourage your children to practise their 2’s, 5’s and 10 times tables.

Have a lovely weekend.

A lovely sunny week of learning!

The children have enjoyed writing their facts for their sun safety unit in English and giving reasons why we must keep ourselves safe.

We have also worked hard in maths with problem solving involving addition and subtraction.

In RE we had our lesson outsideĀ  thinking about how we are followers of Jesus and what we do in our lives to show this to others.

Just a reminder- please could we have reply slips for our trip which is happening on Thursday 28th June 2018. Parent helpers are desperately needed for our trip to go ahead so we would be very grateful to anyone who can offer their help. Thank you!

Please encourage your children to log into Sum dog as there is a maths challenge for them to take part in.

Have a lovely weekend.

What a busy week in year 2!

The children have had another lovely week working hard. They have been working in partners to solve problems in maths, creating Paschal candles in RE and enjoying practising lots of new strategies to learning new spellings.


Just a reminder on Monday 11th June 2018 2A have their music concert at 11.15am.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
