We have been using Rapid Router to develop our coding skills. We’ve used computing vocabulary such as debug and algorithm.
We used marbles and ramps to investigate how we can make the marble change direction and stop.
We became dragonologists and researched and wrote non-chronological reports about dragons.
Year 2 were so excited – they followed clues around the school, which led them to three incredible dragon’s eggs.
To celebrate all the learning we have done about castles, Year 2 enjoyed dressing up for the day as queens, kings, knights, dragons and princesses.
We baked gingerbread men and enjoyed Elizabethan drama, dance and art.
Year 2 loved their trip to Warwick Castle. They watched the falcon show, had a guided tour, got lost in the maze and climbed the tower!
Year 2 are investigating strong structures in science.
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.
A named water bottle containing water only.
A blue sweater for when we go out on trips.
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.
