In year 2 we’ve been preparing for our Christmas fair. We have some fantastic product ideas and have been practising our sewing skill…….that’s all we can reveal until the Christmas fair
Odd or Even
We’ve been investigating into odd and even numbers and was able to say whether a number up to 100 was odd or even. We were also able to explain how we know

They you can come into class to look at the fabulous work we have completed this half term. Hope to see you there!
Star of the week
Well done for always challenging yourself in your learning
Well done to these superstars for getting all of their spellings correct today (some VERY tough words this week)
We have been practising our painting skills, starting with mixing the primary colours to make secondary colours. We made a colour wheel to show what we have learned. We will be creating watercolour illustrations next
Star of the week
Well done for your super attitude to learning. Some excellent writing produced this week
We’ve been practising and developing our drawing skills. We have been using a pencil to create different shades. We copied the artwork of Quentin Blake (the illustrator of James and the Giant Peach)
We love unscrambling our spellings on a Tuesday. Well done superstars!!
Every Friday we get to meet with our reading buddies in year 5. We get to read our books to them and they write a comment in our reading record (make sure that you bring it every day) Then they read a book to us. We’ve had great fun this afternoon!
More map work
We have been using an atlas again to label the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the World. We also read a note from James and plotted the journey of the giant peach across the world
Well done Keegan!
Keegan has been inspired by our topic in school and has made his own bug hotel in his garden at home. Well done Keegan! I hope the bugs will be cosy and safe.

Our Bug Hotel Posters
Today we used the I pads to make posters to display near our bug hotel. We wanted to make sure that everyone looks after it properly
Building our bug hotel
Well done to our star of the week. Super listening and concentration when completing a reading comprehension!
Maths this week
This week we are practising maths facts like: number bonds to 20 and then number bonds to 100. Have a practice at home and see if you can write the subtraction sums to match
We had a letter from James (and the giant peach) asking us to help him to understand where he lives and what our country is like. We named the countries of the UK, their capital cities and the seas around us.
We’ve been doing some tricky maths. We’ve had missing number lines and we have been placing where numbers would go. We have had to use our knowledge of tens and ones to know where to place our numbers.
