Year 2 have been learning about Roald Dahl. They have been reading The Enormous Crocodile and the Twits.
They are going to write their own stories based on Roald Dahl. A character from one of his stories is going to visit them!
Year 2 have been busy learning about dragons. They have been hatching a dragon egg! Daisy in Year 2 wrote instructions on how to make a sleeping potion:
Having trouble catching a roaring or sly dragon?
Well worry no more – this potion will get the dragon right to sleep. With its wonderful smell, but it only smells to a dragon. What a delightful potion!
Reading record and colour-banded reading book in their book bag.
A PE kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each half term.

Monday – Fortnightly Home Learning Project in for the following Thursday.
Friday – The children have a spelling test every Friday. They must have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week. We recommend children use the look, say, cover, spell, check method to practise these.
Reading – Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week with a parent or carer.
We ask you to support your child by hearing them read their individual levelled reading books at home. We would appreciate it if parents could sign and make a comment in the reading diaries at least three times a week. Helpers may also hear your child read their individual reading book in school, so it is important that this book is brought to school every day. Books are changed in school every week.
