Pirate Adventures

This week in English the children having been writing a pirate adventure, using the pirate quest from the previous week for ideas.


In maths they have been using the greater and less than signs  (> < ) to compare numbers. They have learnt that the crocodile eats the biggest number.


They plotted a possible route Christopher Columbus could have taken on map and used some directional language.


In Science they have been learning about plants. They are  closely observing the seeds and bulbs growing in the classroom.

Welcome to Year 2

It was good to see a number of parents on Monday evening for the curriculum talk. We hope you found it useful.


PE is on Monday and Thursday for Scarlet class and Thursday and Friday for Crimson class. Please can the children come prepared on Monday (Scarlet class) and Friday (Crimson class) for outside PE. They will need trainers and dark coloured jogging bottoms. Children with earrings need to either, take them out or come with them taped over and long hair needs to be tied back.


This week in literacy the children have been on a pirate adventure and they have made puppets to help them tell their own pirate story.



In maths they have been identifying the value of digits and counting on and back in tens.


They have been planning a design for a vehicle that they are going to be making next week. Please can they bring in small cardboard boxes and any other bits and bobs that they might want to use in a named bag. We will be providing wheels and axles.

Ready, Steady, Go!

In Maths we explored the properties of 3d shapes. In Literacy we have been writing a narrative for an imagination clip. We looked at different homes from around the World. On Tuesday we had great fun participating in Sports activities.


Who’s Been Sitting in My Chair?

In Literacy we have been retelling the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. In Maths we have been using different methods to solve addition and subtraction number sentences. We used Google Earth to explore homes from around the World. We discussed what we are good at and what we have achieved.



We had such a fun day at the Zoo. We saw lots of animals, learnt about their habitats and explored the World of Dinosaurs. We were so impressed with the children’s behaviour.

This week we have been writing facts that we gathered from our trip and we have been writing letters. In Maths we found ½ and ¼ of an amount.

I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff…

We had a visit from The Big Bad Wolf but our school was too strong to blow down! We have been reading ‘The True Story of The Three Little Pigs’; we became the wolf to write diary entries. We have been investigating scaling using repeated addition and multiplication. . We did observational drawings from the window.

In Maths we have been solving problems using multiplication and scaling. We have been ordering and retelling the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. In Science we identified different types of electrical items. We thought about what type of electricity we use the most and why.
