In English next week, each child will be writing a non-fiction report about an animal of their choice.

If you have any time over the weekend, discuss which animal your child might like to focus on and see if you can do some research together.

They can bring in any research they have done (could be a print out from a website or just some notes that they wrote from your research together) but no worries if this is not possible, we are going to have some time to do research together as a class.

 

Many thanks,

Team Year 2

We apologise for the mistakes with the division questions, just leave any of the incorrect questions as they cannot be answered.

 

This is how it should have been!

D.T. Day in diamond. We had a wonderful day working in groups to build castles and then to decorate them. Didn't we do well.

On Monday 9th December Year 2 visited Windsor Castle.  We had an amazing time, learnt lots of interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth II in our workshop and saw some amazing rooms within the castle.  We were also lucky enough to visit while the Queen was at home so we got to see the Royal Standard (a red and yellow flag) flying when we arrived.  We also saw the flag going down and being replaced by the Union Jack when she left to head back to Buckingham Palace later in the day.  Here are some pictures from our wonderful day out.

PE

Now that the weather is turning colder and some of our PE sessions are outside please ensure your child has an outdoor PE kit as per the school policy (joggers, sweatshirt, hat and gloves and trainers).  This should be in school every day please as sometimes our timetable does change.  If you're child has outgrown any joggers and sweatshirts we would really appreciate them as spare PE kit.  Thank you.
