Today we had our Year 1 and 2 Christmas party. We had lots of fun dancing and playing games in our glamorous party clothes, and got a great surprise from a very special visitor! It was a brilliant end to a fantastic first term in Year 2! Everyone is now looking forward to a well deserved Christmas break!

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Money! Money! Money!

In Maths we are currently learning about money. We are finding that the children are having difficulty with identifying coins and understanding the relationship between pounds and pence. We know that we are living in an increasingly cashless society, however it is important that the children have an awareness and have experienced using money in everyday situations. Perhaps Saturday's fair could be an ideal opportunity to put these skills into practise?!

Today we had a lovely visit from Rev Jess from St Mary's. Rev Jess talked to us about her role in the church and wider Christian community. She gave the children the opportunity to ask interesting questions. This talk was a brilliant way to conclude our R.E topic on Christian community which we have enjoyed.

Katie has retold the classic tale of The Three Little Pigs, remembering to use capital letters and full stops!

 

It has been a busy start to the new school year here in year 2. The children have been settling in and catching up with friends as well as working extremely hard and learning new routines. Having worked on storyboards last week, the children have completed extended writing on the story of the 'Three Little Pigs', complete with an alternative ending. In Science we have been continuing with our 'Health and Growth' topic and have been investigating how animals and humans change. In P.E. lessons we have been doing gymnastics. In R.E we have been looking at the Christian community. During our Maths lessons we have been recapping number bonds and tackling mental arithmetic.
