Autumn term

Week beginning - 26.9.22


This week in English we have been continuing with our Kings and Queens topic. As a class we read the story

Paddington at the Palace and then sequenced the images and wrote sentences to match each image. 

We also had a go at writing a retell of Paddington at the Palace in our own words. 

Towards the end of the week we thought about what we would do if we were King or Queen for the day and thought

very carefully about verbalising our sentences before recording them.

Finally, we looked at a Paddington comprehension based on the video of Paddington at

Buckingham Palace from the Queen's Platinum Jubilee earlier this year. 





In Maths we have been continuing to work on place value but have also started to recap on counting in 

2s, 5s and 10s. We have sequenced numbers, completed number tracks and solved word problems involving

2s, 5s and 10s. We also started to explore counting in 3s too. 


Religious Education

In RE this week we have continued to learn about Judaism and more specifically the Torah. 


Well done to everyone in Year 2 who is reading 4 times or more at home!


Week beginning - 19.9.22

After a sad start to the week following on from the Queen's funeral on Monday we were very excited to have

our first Sports Day/Morning! We took part in lots of different races including a sprint race, egg & spoon,

a sack race, a space hopper race and a bean bag balancing race. 

We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed watching the other children in Year 1 take part too. 

The adults at school were very proud of the children and noticed how many of them did not give up

and kept going right until the very end! 



In English we have been continuing to learn about Kings and Queens and this week we learnt specifically about

King Henry VIII and Queen Victoria. We also completed a class comprehension about the Royal Family and 

answered questions carefully about what we had read. 



This week in Maths we have been looking at numbers line and comparing objects. We had a go at estimating numbers 

on a number line and thought about counting in 2s, 5s and 10s on a number line and not just in 1s. 



In PSHE this week we learnt about our rights and responsibilities. We spoke about our own responsibilities in school 

e.g. looking after our belongings, being kind to others, following instructions etc..


Well done to everyone in Year 2 who is reading 4 times or more at home!


Week beginning - 12.9.22

We were very sad in Year 2 to hear about the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

We had some time on Friday to think about her and spoke about why some people may be sad or wearing black in

the coming 10 days of mourning. 



This week we have started our Kings and Queens topic, which was planned before the sad passing

of our Queen last Thursday. We have learnt about Queen Elizabeth II and have also written a letter

to King Charles III welcoming him to the new job and expressing our sadness that his Mummy has

passed away. Next week we will continue to learn about famous Kings and Queens from the past. 


In Maths this week we have been working on place value and thinking about 10s and 1s.

We have used base 10, a part/whole model and number lines to show numbers in different ways. 


As part of our Kings and Queens topic, we have also painted watercolour

side profiles of Queen Elizabeth II. We have displayed some of them in Rowan Class's

window as a sign of respect.




We have also coloured in candles to have in our classroom windows that are also

to show respect Queen Elizabeth II. 



Well done to everyone in Year 2 who is reading 4 times or more at home!


Week beginning - 5.9.22


Our first week back at school in Year 2 has been very busy! We have been settling into our new classes and mixing

with our new classmates and adults. 


We have been writing up the class rules that we agreed together and made sure we left clear finger spaces

between our words. We have also been learning about the past and present tense. We thought about what we had in our classroom in Year 1 compared with our new Year 2 classrooms

e.g. In Year 1 we had a role play area but in Year 2 we have a bigger reading corner. 


In Maths we have been recapping our place value work and have been looking at base 10 and part/whole models. 


Well done to everyone in Year 2 who is reading 4 times or more at home!
