Welcome to Year 2
Our teacher is Ms Forbes.
We are helped by Mrs Ashwin and Mrs Savage.
Mrs Ashwin, Mrs Savage and I would like to say HUGE thank you for your amazingly thoughtful gifts. We are extremely grateful and touched! We have loved teaching your children this year and will miss them a lot.
Thank you for all of your support and kindness throughout this unusual and challenging year.
We hope you all have a lovely summer and a well deserved break!
Miss Forbes, Mrs Ashwin and Mrs Savage
Well done Year 2 on completing an amazing 425 laps in total of our school running track (that’s more than 50 miles). You ran, jogged, skipped, walked tremendously well and should be very proud of yourselves!!
After reading the book ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner, Year 2 wrote some fantastic persuasive adverts for an underwater camera. I wonder which one you would buy?
Our science work took us out into the beautiful sunshine this afternoon, as we headed up to the nature area to look at trees. We looked carefully at the different parts of a tree and took rubbings of the bark. We then collected leaves and brought them back to the classroom so that we could observe them more closely under a magnifying glass.
Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Easter and a well deserved rest!
Our theme for this term is 'At the Seaside', where we will be comparing seaside holidays now and in the past in history, and using geography skills to locate and identify features of seaside locations across the UK. Our science work will be focusing on plants and animals and in English we will be writing our own fantasy stories using the book 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner, as well as writing leaflets about seaside resorts.
We are back to having two PE sessions a week, so the children will need to come in their PE kits on Tuesday and Wednesday.
We had a super time hunting for Easter eggs this afternoon - the Easter bunny had been very busy! I hope you all have a lovely break. See you in a few weeks.
It has been so wonderful to welcome all of the children back into school this week. They have settled back into the school routine brilliantly and are very pleased to be back with their friends.
Over the first few weeks we will be focusing on recapping skills. In maths we will consolidating our home learning work on addition and subtraction and looking at position, direction and time. Our English work will be based on George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl, which is in keeping with our current theme 'Doctors and Nurses'. In history, we will be studying the lives of famous nurses, such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and developing an understanding of how things have changed over time. In science, we will be thinking about the human body and ways that we can keep ourselves healthy.

Thank you School Council for organising such fun activities to raise money for Children in Need. We enjoyed dressing up in yellow, just like Pudsey, and found lots of Pudsey pictures on our Pudsey letter hunt, which spelt out the phrase ‘Children in Need’. We also enjoyed some delicious Pudsey biscuits, made by Mrs Cranston, while we watched Britain’s Got Talent’s winner Jon Courtenay and Pudsey doing some funny things on the big screen.
