History: Explorers

We love reading!In Year 2, we love to read! In a morning, the children will use a token to vote for the book that they would like the teacher to read to them at the end of the day. We have had fun voting in the morning and then the children will talk about their favourite part of the book. 

Amira - "I like it because you get choose it by yourself".

Rico- "I like that I get to pick the book so that we aren't we aren't reading the same book". 

Our reading time in the library.

Our first week in Year 2.

The children this week, have been looking at adding tens and ones. They have been partitioning tens and ones independently and then creating different addition sentences. 


To support with our addition here is a link to a number bonds game: 

Our Ambassadors have been writing to a school in Guernsey. The Children were very excited to receive a reply

A big thankyou to Mr Embley. He has donated some pallets which we have recycled and made into seating for our kitchen garden.

Year 2 have been growing strawberries and vegetables with Mrs Broadfield. They will soon be ready to eat. Our strawberries just need a little sunshine now.

Year 2 were very excited to look around our new class kitchen. We are looking forward to cooking some delicious food.

Year 2 have been working really hard with online learning. They have been looking at there times tables in maths and the story of Anansi and the tiger in english. 


It is great to see how hard they are working and to catch up with them on teams each day.

We are also currently practicing our song for PSHE 'This is me' as well as learning the sign for it. 

This term in DT we have been exploring materials, designing and making a coat for the Antarctic explorer Captain Scott. We have been cutting materials and we have also learnt a new skill, sewing. We have had lots of fun!
