IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, READ WITH YOUR CHILD EVERY NIGHT AS IT WILL GREATLY IMPROVE THEIR FLUENCY!!

Reading books are changed on different days each week, to link in with their RWI lessons, so please ensure your child brings their reading folder to school DAILY.  

Reading records should be signed each time your child reads at home; once a reading record is complete, your child can come to school the following day in non-uniform and will receive the next colour reading record on our reading rainbow!
P. E. is on a Monday and children should come to school dressed in their (weather appropriate) P.E. kit.

The children have enjoyed using these games to improve their recall of basic skills. The children can use these websites at home, alongside Mathletics and TT Rockstars (logins will be given out once children have settled in) to improve their maths skills.

Year 2 are very excited to be attending the launch of the Artemis 1 rocket  into Luna orbit! Here's our boarding pass. 

Year 2 have enjoyed putting their Science learning to the test by working scientifically. The children explored how germs passed from person to person using glitter germs. Then they washed their hands using only water, and then they added soap. Why not ask them what they discovered?

As part of a DT project, the children designed, stitched and added extra details to these snowman puppets. They learned all about cutting accurately, joining seams together using an overstitch, and using fabric glue to embellish their design. 

We love testing how things work in Year 2! As part of their Year 1 R&R, we designed, built and tested a strong house for straw house little pig. The house needed to be strong enough not to be blown down and also waterproof.  Which one do you think won?

In RE we have been learning that Christians believe that Jesus is the light of the world. We learned all about the Christian celebration of Christingle and what each part of the candle represents. 

The recent climate change conference, COP26, has made us think about what we can do to help our beautiful planet. We decided that we could help by composting food waste in school. We pledged to save our fruit leftovers to add to our compost pile for our school allotment.

Jess, our school therapy dog came into class to listen to our poetry about stars. We loved having Jess visit and she gave us 5 woofs out of 5 for our amazing poetry.

This term we enjoyed collecting leaves on a sunny autumn day to make mulch for our allotment garden.

Our Science topic this half term is Animals including Humans. We used different sources to find out about the life cycle of a butterfly, chicken, frog, and human.

We love History in Class 2 and this term we have learned all about the Great Fire of London. Here we are using our role play skills to recreate events.

We have been learning all about the artist L S Lowry and used 'Lowry colours' to create a city scape. So far we have painted the background and buildings, and practised drawing matchstick people and animals in our art books. Come back soon to see our finished artwork.

Year 2's class book this half-term is the Lonely Beast by Chris Judge. We have LOVED this story and have done lots of drama, art and writing around our book. Here is some of  our work...
