In class this week we are practicing our place value skills through addition and subtraction.

We are continuing our studies surrounding Fearsome Fires, writing stories about "The Dragon Machine".  Over the next few weeks we will be exploring the Great Fire of London, studying history and we would be delighted to hear any facts you learn or already know!

At this time of year children are bringing in new clothes to keep cosy, ensure you label everything to aid your child recovering their belongings. Thank you!

This week we have been looking at 3D shapes, exploring their names, what they look like, their properties and what 2D shapes they contain! We also looked into the nets of 3D shapes, how we make cubes and square based pyramids. In EPIC we are continuing with our wonderful new Topic, Fearsome fires, reading "The Dragon Machine" and thinking about what our own dragon would look like, to do this we've used descriptive language: adjectives and similes are our favourite methods of describing!

We would like to encourage questioning to establish comprehension when reading at home, we have had some lovely conversations in school about our new book and wonder what subjects you talk about at home!

This week we had an amazing visit from Moneysense on Monday, a team from Natwest that came in to talk to students about how we spend our money. They suggested that students might want to try some of the fun games on their site to help them think more about money this week through this link: https://mymoneysense.com/students/students-5-8/

We have been following this by learning about money and how we pay for things with coins in Maths.

Epic this term started with dragons for our new "Fearsome Fires" Topic! We have written a story about the New Year Dragon and drawn our own versions of the fiery beast! 

Thank you for your wonderful holiday stories and coming back calmly this term.

Last week we looked at Fractions and Time in Mathematics- learning about "half" and "quarter" helped us to understand "half past" and "quarter past/to"! We continued our Penguins Topic through writing and creating fun Christmas and Wintry things, writing letters and posting them in our class post boxes and learning through quizzes and colouring!

Thank you for coming to our Christmas Concert and supporting Year 2 with their hard work throughout 2018. We look forward to welcoming you to the new term in 2019!

In EPIC this week we have read a book called Lost and Found to continue thinking about Penguins and friendship. Children have done research and created creative writing thinking about different environments. In Mathematics we have tried different methods of division, using grouping and number lines to answer number sentences. 

We have been practicing songs and sign-language based actions for our Christmas Concert which everyone seems excited about!

Year 2


Our Year 2's have had an excellent start to the year, exploring Fairy Tales in Epic (English and Topic combined!) with stories like Hansel and Gretel that led them on an adventure through the woods, and Billy Goats Gruff which saw them build their own bridges.

Last half-term our Topic, "P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin" really took off, helping us explore Antarctica and think like a penguin. We've drawn and written our own stories, making our own clay igloos and penguin friends.

This half-term we start our "Fearsome Fires" Topic starting with dangerous dragon stories and moving through to facts about English history. We have also looked at how 3D shapes are made during our journey!

Our Values shine brightly in every classroom and our walls reflect the hard work we have done so far!
