‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term B

Week 7

After 2 weeks of self isolating, the children returned raring to go. We have had a really busy week! We have partied, visited Santa, enjoyed hot chocolate, squirty cream and marshmallows and completed sooo many crafts, while learning about the true meaning of Christmas!

Have a very merry Christmas, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all again in January. 

The Christmas Party

There were some serious dance moves on display! 

Trip to see Santa in the treehouse

Santa chatted to the children from his treehouse. He assured them that they are all on the nice list! He sent their presents down his slide. 

Delicious Christmas Lunch

Week 4 

This week the children have been on a materials hunt in the school yard, they have learnt how to use column addition and have written their own sensory description. 


Week 3

This week the children have continued investigating The Great Fire of London, they have written fantastic recounts and have explored the many different causes of the fire. In maths they have been using a hundred square to add and subtract ten. 


Week 2

Another busy week in Year 2. The children are enjoying being detectives. We have begun to investigate what happened in the Great Fire of London. In maths, we have been revising our number bonds to 10 and applying these to help us with our number bonds to 20 and 100. In English, we have been writing a recount with all the features. 


Week 1

The children have had a great week back. 
We have been recognising the features of a recount in English and writing poems with onomatopoeias for Bonfire night. The children had some great ideas.

In maths the children have been using the part, part whole model to find the relationship between addition and subtraction. The children did some great learning and enjoyed the sweeties that helped them too!
In art, they enjoyed using pastels to create a firework night sky.
