If your child does not complete or return their homework they will miss their Golden Time reward on a Friday afternoon.

Days of the week

To help us remember the days of the week we used the Adams Family tune.  We then recorded each day in order into our books.  

Double this and double that

Owls have been looking at doubling 1 digit numbers.  They had a fantastic time painting doubling spots onto butterflies.

Are YOU brave enough?

Lots of children and parents supported the Halloween disco on Tuesday night. The evening kicked off with dancing, costumes and treats. There was a costume competition with prizes. Then everyone tucked into a tasty hot dog washed down with juice. There were some spooky...

Crimson, spiky, crunchy…

...just a few of the many adjectives Year 2 have been using to describe Autumn. We have been creating lots of different kinds of poems. These are some of our favourites!

2D Shape Hunt

Being detectives looking for 2D shapes and their names.  Can you name them?

5-a-day detective hunt

Owls went on a detective hunt looking for posters of different foods of what they can have each day to help with their 5-a-day balanced diet. What 5-a-day have you had today?

Position That!

Maths was taken outside to find positional numbers.  Children ran races and ordered their positions.  Ready, set go!  

Awesome Autumn Maths

Owls went for a walk around the school collecting different autumn leaves.  They then used their leaves to estimate, measure and to find the area of their leaf.  They had great fun!
