Chers parents,

Year 2 children are learning about farm animals in French so here are a few links to help them practise at home

Madame Annis

We finally become authors!

This week in maths we have been drawing our own number line to add numbers. In English we have been writing our own stories based on the book ‘The Pig in the Pond’. In science we found out information about rainforest animals using safe search and non-fiction texts.

Marvellous Measuring!

In English this week the children have been planning their own version of ‘The Pig in the Pond’ and have been using hot seating as a way of exploring one of their characters in more detail.

The children have enjoyed using rulers and metre sticks to measure the length of objects.

During science we looked at the diet of rainforest animals and used specific vocabulary: carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.


Scarlet Class: This week I have sent home a copy of the common exception words identifying the words the class find difficult to spell. Please practise these at home.


Crimson Class: On Monday the children were sent home a highlighted list of words, in their homework books, that children struggle to spell correctly. Please practise these at home.

Spring term (1) Homework – Year 2

Homework will be posted on the blog every half term showing you the day it will be discussed with the children and the task. Each task will relate to an objective covered during the week.


This term we would like the children to work on their spellings of the common exception words. Lists have been given out but further copies can be obtained from the teachers.


Friday 13th January 2017: In Maths we are learning to measure in cm using a ruler. See if you can measure some of the objects in your house and record your findings. As a challenge see if you can accurately draw lines with a ruler and label them with their length.


Friday 20th January 2017: Our topic this term is Rainforests. Using the internet or a non-fiction book, find out about an animal that lives in the rainforest, including the type of food that they eat.


Friday 27th January 2017: In English we are looking at features of a non-fiction text. Choose a non-fiction book and write down the features you can find in the book. These may include: Contents page, Index, Glossary, headings, sub-headings, bold print, diagrams, pictures, labels and captions.


Friday 3rd February 2017: In Maths we are working on addition and subtraction. Write some number sentences and show your working out.


Please bring the homework books back week beginning 6th February 2017 to be marked.


Thank you

Happy New Year

Welcome back, we hope everyone has had a joyful break and ready for the new term.

In English we have begun the term looking at the story ‘The Pig in the Pond’ while in maths we have been using the symbols <  >  = to compare numbers and calculations.

Happy Christmas

This week the children have finished their ‘Take One Picture’ art projects, which you can see displayed in the classrooms.

Panto fun!

This week the children have taken part in a range of Christmas activities including our carol service, pantomime and Christmas Lunch. Well done to all those who did a reading in the church.

In English we have been looking at using commas in lists. The children enjoyed looking at Christmas objects gathering data on tally charts and pictograms in maths. As part of our ‘Take One Picture’ project the children made their mats/seat coverings using their symmetrical pattern designs.

Christmas begins

This week in English the children have been exploring noun phrases and expanded noun phrases. They used these to write a shape poem.


In maths the children have been telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Please encourage the children to practise telling the time at home.


The children enjoyed the Christmas theme in French which resulted in someone being decorated like a Christmas tree.



Grace Darling’s heroic adventure

In English the children have enjoyed being reporters using interesting vocabulary to write a newspaper article about Grace Darling.


In maths the children have been looking at fractions of a shape and then applied their knowledge to find fractions of numbers.


Following on from our lessons about giving and receiving gifts the children had a visit from Judith who talked about a Christians perspective of giving and receiving at this time of year.
