Hello everyone! We hope you are well…

This week has been an exciting one in Year 2! We kicked off our new text driver (ssssh, it’s a secret!) by going on a scavenger hunt around the field. Can you guess from the clues which book we’re working from in English?


In Maths this week we have built on our knowledge of place value and how many tens and ones a number has, by adding 10 (or multiples of ten) to any number. Be sure to look at your Home Learning sticker in your diary for your home task and to log in to SumDog for practise opportunities.

We’ve also begun a year-long ‘Longitudinal Study’ in Science to look at how we can increase the number of pollinators at St Peter’s, which the children seem very excited about! “I’m worrried the insects will become extinct and the birds and frogs won’t have any food,” said one Giraffe.

Remember next week that there in an Inset day on Friday (2nd October) and that PE kits are to be worn on Tuesdays AND Wednesdays each week.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Team 2.

In English, we’ve been continuing our troll descriptions, based on the troll who lives under a bridge in the text, ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’.

In Maths, we’ve been working on representing two digit numbers using a range of different concrete resources such as Dienes, Numicon, beadstrings and numberlines. Here is an example…

Please see your child’s homework diary for this week’s home learning. Have a great weekend!
