Into The Forest

User Rating:  / 0

For the last two weeks Year 2 have been reading the book Into The Forest by Anthony Browne during our Big Read sessions. We have thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the pictures for different clues, using our inference and deduction skills, as each page references a traditional tale. 

Can you find any clues in the pictures?

Celebrating Lewis Latimer

User Rating:  / 0

As part of Black History Month Year 2 have been looking at the life and works of Lewis Latimer. The pictures below are just just two of the many pieces of information the children found out about Lewis - he had a very interesting life.

The children then had to create their own fact file on him, see our Excellence Board post to see a great example of this work.

Painting like Van Gogh!

User Rating:  / 0

Today we spent the whole day doing Art.

One of our key skills was using a paint brush correctly; holding it like  a pencil and doing strokes of paint rather than 'colouring in' with paint. Our other skill was creating different tints (adding white) and shades (adding black) of colour.

We might not be famous artists but we are all proud of the work we produced today.

Counting on!

User Rating:  / 0

We have had a great week in Maths looking at place value; we went outside and created our very own place value grid. Next week we are going to start counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10. Click the image below to listen to the song we will be singing in our Maths lessons next week.




We have been talking with the children this week about the importance of good presentation and ensuring our writing is clear to the reader. Finger spaces, size of writing and letter formation are all aspects of presentation that we need to focus on in all our writing, whether its on homework sheets, English books or on whiteboards it is all still important.

To start Year 2 off we have been reading (and watching) The Snail and The Whale. We have looked at the different locations that they visited on their journey and the things we would need to take with us if we went there. We are finishing the week off by writing our very own postcards from our favourite location in the book.

If you could go on ANY journey where would you go?


2JE P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday

2AG P.E days are Monday and Wednesday

Please make sure the children have a book in school every day as we are unable to borrow books from our school library/class library.

Time for a maths challenge!

Hi Year 2,

Hope you are all keeping well and are managing to keep up with your school work at home. I thought you might enjoy having the chance to challenge yourself to 'beat your best score' at Big Maths Beat That.

Attached are the files that you can print out at home. THe last test we did was Test 5.

I have also attached the soundfile so you can make sure you only get the 90 seconds you're allowed!

Good luck
