Year 2's MyMaths homework will be set each Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
This gives you a week to access the task, practise as necessary and as frequently as you would like, and then complete the questions for the homework section. We will be able to see when you have completed the task and how well you have got on which will help us to know if you might need a little bit more help. You can complete the questions more than once if you would like to try to improve your score. If you have any questions - please ask.
Friday 8th June 2018
The children have settled back into school really well and have impressed us with their hard-working attitudes. We have started a new book in English called 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' and the children have spent time this week planning alternative endings and writing their own version of the story.
We have been doing time work in maths which the chidlren have really impressed us with. This week we have focused on reading the time on a clock and next week we will focus on showing the time on a clock by drawing our own hands.
We are continue to monitor the growth of our plants in Science and the transformation over our week is school was incredible.
Today we have a visit from Carl who did a gym workshop with us. You can see pictures and videos below.
What an exciting term ahead!

17.1.18 - Dragon eggs!
Today, the eggs arrived at school. They arrived with a letter that was written in dragonese. We had to decode the letter and try and work out what it was telling us. It was a letter from a mummy dragon who asked us to look after her baby dragons until she was safe. She will be coming back to collect them soon.
16.1.18 - An egg delivery
Today, eggs arrived at Miss Grimsey's house for us to look after. We're not sure what is inside yet but we have made some great predictions and have written all about what happened.

This week we have been writing poetry all about Bonfire night. At the beginning of the week we explore the features of a kenning poem and work in pairs to write our own.

We have had such an amazing week in Key Stage One. The chidlren have been busy learning about Neil Armstrong, researching different planets and using modroc to create their own planets. We have had lots of fun and the chidlren put so much effort into their dressing up. They looked great! Thank you to those of you who attended the space gallery on Friday. The children loved sharing their work and were very proud of all of their achievements.
Fire service visit!
