One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News w/b Monday 19th September for Team Royal and Indigo

Well done Year 2 for another wonderful week :)


This week we have been looking at partitioning numbers into tens and ones or hundred, tens and ones but also in a variety of ways. We have used Base 10 to support us with this. Later in the week we used this learning to solve problems.


This week in SPaG, we have focused our learning on the months of the year. We learnt the order and worked hard on being able to spell the months correctly too. 

Read at 3

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and adults that were able to attend last week's Read at 3 with the children. It was lovely to see you all and hear everyone read. We welcome you all to come to hear your child Read at 3 if you can every Wednesday. Please note this is for the full 15 minutes and children will be unable to leave any earlier. The children will be ready for you to come and hear their wonderful reading at 3.


In Topic this week we finished off our Great Fire of London learning by making fact files. We then moved on to learning all about Queen Elizabeth I. We had so much fun with this! We learnt facts about her father King Henry VIII, how she treated people and even facts about her hair! We created crowns and role-played Queen Elizabeth I. This involved a lot of shoe throwing!

Love to Learn

Sent home Friday 23rd September to be returned by Wednesday 28th September

This week for your Love to Learn task, we would love for you to tell us all about your favourite book you like to read at home. You could create artwork, a comic, create a book review or even retell the story! 

Harvest Festival

We have been learning two songs this week in anticipation for our Harvest Festival. We would love for you to practice the songs at home. Please find below links to the videos.

Other News

Monday is our Sports Project day. Please can children still wear their full school uniform with trainers.

Tuesday is our P.E day. Please can the children come to school in their P.E kit. Just a reminder this should be blue or black shorts/trousers and a plain white top.

Doors will continue to open in the morning at 8:30am. Registration will be at the slightly earlier time of 8:45am (doors close at this time).

As the weather is beginning to get colder please can children bring in a coat which is clearly named.

We are also fortunate enough to have a woodland area at school where we can learn and explore and a playground that can accumulate many puddles. Please if you can, could your child bring in wellies that are named in a bag. We have facilities where they can be kept at school.

Key dates to remember:

Friday 14th October – We would like to invite the children to come into school dressed as someone from the past. These costumes can be completely homemade and there is no pressure to but a costume at all. We will be dressed in homemade outfits ourselves.

Additionally, on Friday 14th October we would like to invite you to our assembly where we can show you all what we have been up to. More details to follow shortly.
