We’ve arrived at the end of another fun week!

What a busy week we have had! In English, the children have thoroughly enjoyed finishing our class novel, ‘The Twits’. We have started to learn the features of a recipe and have compared a variety of different recipes in class. The children are excited to make their own sandwiches next week in DT.

In Maths, we have been measuring worms for Mrs Twit for her worm spaghetti. The children have applied their knowledge of number bonds to 10, 20 and 50 and have represented these calculations in lots of different ways.

Giraffe class are very excited for their Music Concert on Monday 21st October at 11:15am.

We have also been busy practising for our Year 2 Liturgy which is on Tuesday 22nd October at 10:30am. This will be held in the Unity Building and we are very much looking forward to seeing you all there!


Finally, for our home learning task this week, please could all children bring in some food packaging from around the world for our DT day next Friday 25th October. Please ensure no packaging is brought in which has nuts or seeds in, or food which contains either of these.

Have a lovely weekend,

From the Year 2 Team.

This week in Year 2

We have enjoyed our week in Year 2!

In English, we have published our stories and we enjoyed making sure our presentation was the very best it could be. We have been exploring Mr Twit in our Guided Reading sessions, and the children been sorting vocabulary based on relevance. The children then explained why they thought some words were more relevant than others.

In Maths, we have been taking away tens from any number and have started to subtract two 2-digit numbers.

We loved using the dienes to help us!

At home, please could you practise counting on in tens from any number e.g. 34, 44, 54 at home.

As part of our Design and Technology topic ‘Food Glorious Food’, your child will have the opportunity to taste a range of sandwich fillings and breads on Tuesday 15th October. Your child will be coming home with a letter with more information regarding this event. Please could you ensure your child returns their slip by Monday 14th October. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

The Year 2 Team.


Another Friday has arrived!

In English, we have planned and written our own stories about our own food going on a very mucky journey! We have been working hard to edit and improve our work and have used some fantastic expanded noun phrases independently! We are very much looking forward to reading our stories to Year 1.


In Maths, we have been learning about money this week. We have enjoyed making different amounts in lots of different ways and enjoyed finding as many combinations as we could. We have started adding tens on a number line and have used dienes to help us with this.


Today we have all dressed in bright colours to raise money for CAFOD. We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have taken part.

Finally, for your home learning task this week, please log in to SUMDOG to complete some maths activities.

Have a lovely weekend!
