Red Nose Day!

This week in maths we have been looking at a fraction wall, exploring equivalent fractions. In English we have been performing one of Roald Dahl’s revolting rhymes. Children have thoroughly enjoyed listening and performing their jokes to support red nose day. Year 2 were lucky enough to plant a variety of plants in two of the planters in the playground.

Finding the difference

This week in maths we have been finding the difference between numbers while looking at data.

PTDC2625 PTDC2627 PTDC2628

In English we have written another story ending trying to including adverbs, conjunctions, words that use suffixes and different sentence starters. With so much to think about both Mrs Freer and myself were pleased with everyone’s writing. In computing children have been looking at moving an object by swiping the screen and then stopping it with a tap.


Next Friday will be Red Nose Day, children will have an opportunity to show case their talent with a one minute stand up routine i.e. jokes, funny stories, singing. This is optional.

Who did it?

Wow, what a lot of clues we had to think about! All children thoroughly enjoyed piecing information together to try and work out the mystery of the missing Royal diamond. We are glad it has been found. In maths we have been investigating how to work out the missing numbers in division and multiplication calculations.

Story endings!

This week in Maths we have been looking at dividing using a number line and applying it to word problems. In English we wrote our own ending to the story ‘The Tunnel’ by Anthony Browne. In D&T we have started practising our folds ready to make a pop up card.


Well done Scarlet Class for a brilliant sharing assembly, you have been working on projecting your voice.

Welcome back!

This week in English the children have enjoyed writing their own rainforest animal riddles. In maths we have been multiplying using a number line or numicon. In PE we have started to think about the skills needed when playing Hockey.

Count in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s

Write some multiplication and division number sentences and show your working out. Here are some examples:

2 x 5 =        3×3=         4×10=          5×5=          8×2=

12 ÷ 3 =      15 ÷ 5 =      50 ÷ 10 =     24 ÷ 2=     10÷2=

You could show your working by drawing arrays or a number line.



Write a number of different types of sentences:

A command – Put your coat on. (The verb is found at the beginning of the sentence.)

A statement – An elephant has a trunk and tusks. (Facts and information)

A question – What does a Macaw eat? (Starts with a question word)

An exclamation – What big eyes you’ve got! (starts with what or how, includes a verb and exclamation mark)

e.g. quick – quickly  still – stillness  home – homeless      content – contentment       care – careful

  • Practise adding and taking away 2 digit numbers e.g. 24 + 17 =       28 – 15=


Please bring the homework books back during the week beginning 20th March 2017 to be marked.
