Summer I Term 2017

What a busy half term we have had!

The children have worked very hard in their end of KS1 assessment tests. Our writing is really improving too with many of us now joining our letters in preparation for KS2 next year.

We also really enjoyed or bikeability sessions and most of us are now competent on bikes without stabilisers.


Spring II Term 2017

The children have worked very hard on their Victorians topic this half term and I have been very pleased with all of their progress, especially with their writing. They really enjoyed Lotherton Hall and finding out about Florence Nightingale. They even wrote letters to her, pretending to be Queen Victoria and inviting her to a tea party. The cakes and sandwiches that we prepared in our D.T. lesson went down very well!

They also really enjoyed the additional sessions from the Rugby coach Michael and showed great enthusiasm and excellent teamwork.

Thank you for your support at the Palm Sunday Assembly. Of course it is lovely to be back in school just before Easter so I hope the children are looking forward to coming back during Holy Week to make all their Easter cards and baskets.



Spring I Term 2017

What a long way from the start of Year 2 it now feels and how much the children have achieved and progressed! We have learned a lot about plants and how they grow.

The children were especially proud of their bulbs and seeds which they planted and observed grow over the half term. We hope that the onion bulbs will continue to grow outdoors now that we have planted them out there.

Our regular Maths Mornings have been a great success and will continue this half term until Easter.

The next half term is already flying by and as the days lengthen the time before the end of the school year comes closer! As you may be aware the next couple of months will be very busy in Year 2 as we prepare for National Tests in May. Please do all that you can to help your children by coming to school everyday on time and completing homework tasks.

Autumn II Term 2016

A big thank you to all our parents for their support in the second half of the Autumn Term. It was such a busy and enjoyable time for all of us. The Wildlife Park visit was a great success and the children learned so much about the animals that live in Africa and their diet and habitat.

We also really enjoyed our Africa Topic activities, especially the mask making and tie dye work. It was super to have so many parents join in with our activities and research.

The term ended with some really special Advent and Christmas celebrations. Our parents were so generous with their time, making sure the children had costumes and attending our assembly and our Liturgy in Church. We were overwhelmed with all the generous contributions of food for our party. It is so lovely for the children to share their favourite foods from home with their friends in this way.

Of course all too soon the festivities and the holidays are over and we look forward to another half term of learning and enjoyment. We will have some road safety activities in the Spring 1 half term. We do not have an assembly until March but we will be starting our Maths mornings on Tuesday 9th January to which all parents are welcome.


Autumn I Term 2016

Dear parents and carers,
Thank you for your support during the children’s first half term in Year 2, especially your attendance at parents evening. The children have really enjoyed their work about The Great Fire of London. Look at our fabulous Fire Fighter puppets! Sadly, we were not able to arrange a visit by the Fire Engine as our Fire Fighters have had a busy few weeks recently. Our bread making was a great success and fortunately unlike the baker in 1666 we didn’t start a fire!
