Year 2

Well we have had another wonderful week in year 2.  In English we have been planning our stories, making sure we have all the elements we want to include, ready for the big write next week.  Maths has been looking at temperature and we certainly finished the week off with a hot one! In Art we have added all the facial features to our heads, ready for painting next week. 


We finished the week with a fabulous trip to Woburn Safari Park.  It has been an incredibly hot day and the children had a wonderful time seeing the many different animals in the drive through safari.  We learnt lots of new facts; ask the children what the collective names for a group a giraffes, rhinos and zebra are!  We have a wonderful talk all about poo!  Who knew poo could be so interesting. We hope you all had a wonderful time and sleep well tonight! 


Next week we will be gathering in their reading practice books after each read.  If you have any reading for pleasure books these need to be returned by Friday.  All library books to be returned as soon as possible too.  We can't quite believe we have only one full week left for this year.  Lets make it a fun one! We then had a very hot walk around the enclosures before returning to the coach. 


Abacus is up and running.  Please log into your account using the password and code on your bookmarks.  If you have any trouble logging in, please just let us know.  If your child finds the timing stressful on Abacus, or if you don't have access to a phone, tablet or computer, please let us know and we can give you a paper copy of the homework.  Please ensure these paper copies are returned to school as soon as you have completed them. 



It is scheduled to be VERY hot next week so please ensure your child had a named hat in school. Please also put sun cream on at home.  Do not bring into school.

Week commencing 28th March 2022

DT Day 11th February 2022

We had a full fat fun filled day on Friday. First we designed our Tudor Houses, remembering to label carefully. We then had great fun creating a piece of Wattle and Daub. Sadly no poo was allowed, but the children used hay and salt dough. They found it quite tricky to weave in and out and provided them with an insight into how tricky it would have been to build houses in Tudor times. The children then used the boxes to create their houses. Lots of careful measuring was needed to create their windows and beams. Some children put thatch on their buildings. They all had a great time and boy were the classrooms messy at the end of the day. Sign of a good lesson. Sadly we cannot included everyone in our videos, but see if you can spot yourself or a friend.

Safer Internet Day February 8th 2022

On Tuesday we held our Safer Internet Day. The children spent the morning discussing how to stay safe when using an internet device at home. The afternoon was spent using their coding skills to create short videos. The children were very knowledgeable on how to stay safe when using their computer games, knowing when to "Block" and "Report"; knowing that they can always talk to an adult about anything that is happening on their games that they feel uncomfortable with.
You can find more about online safety on our Year Group page by clicking on the Safer Internet Day icon.

We have been learning the number bonds using actions in Maths. Why not have a go at home!
