Welcome back to a new term, we hope you had a wonderful holiday!
It’s been a busy week with the launch of our new topic: Terrific Time Travellers.
A huge thank you to Bluebell and Casper’s Grandfather who visited us on Wednesday to tell us all about his life as a young boy and how it was very different to today. A huge thank you also to everyone who sent a video in, the children were engrossed and fascinated by life I the past; how shocked they were to find out there was once no Netflix!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have started the New Year with Measurement in Maths; measuring in both CM and M accurately. The children has great fun using the metre sticks to measure the classroom.
In Literacy, we have started to learn all about recounts and their features. We have read a lot of texts and immersed ourselves in this text type.
In Topic we have been ordering chronologically dates from the past, starting with the years the teachers were born which made for quite a fun start as the children guessed who was the oldest and youngest.
Thank You for your continued support.
24.1.19- 2KP Class Assembly
Plub and Thee showed great respect this week by tidying up the EY2 garden without being prompted. We are all trying to respect the areas we work and play in, as well as each other.
We have had a very busy week in Year 2 preparing for Superhero Day. The children have learned about healthy eating and have looked at adverts which persuade someone to buy a product. They learnt the features of persuasion texts and used them to create their own posters advertising smoothies. Finally they used all their new knowledge to write letters persuading their parents to try a delicious smoothie!
We look forward to welcoming you to your child’s classroom at 1:30pm on Monday 10th December. Children are invited to wear a Superhero costume to school for the day, we can’t wait to see their incredible costumes!
On Thursday 13th December the children can bring in party clothes to change into. Please bring in the party food in the morning and teachers will store it in the classroom.
We are looking forward to a busy final week of term and visiting City Campus for their Christmas Show. If you haven’t returned the consent form, please do so as soon as possible.
A little reminder that school will finish at 12:50pm on Friday 14th December for the Christmas Holidays.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.

2KP looked incredible in their Superhero costumes today!
They worked so hard at each challenge station and had great fun with their friends.
Well done 2KP.
Weekly Review Friday 23rd November 2018
What a busy week we have had in Year 2.
This week the children have continued to look at a text called ‘This is Traction Man’. The children looked at the features including which tense the story was written in. We also learnt about onomatopoeia words. The children had fun generating them with their friends.
In Maths, we have continued to learn about addition and subtraction. The children have been involved in a wide range of activities to enhance their understanding of adding and taking away.
We have continued to move forward with our Superheroes topic and the children have produced some great pieces of work.
The junior school looked very colourful on Thursday as all the children came to school dressed up for Loy Krathong. We made Krathongs in classrooms using traditional materials to create them.
