3 weeks in and 4 to go! The last term of Year 2 is really flying by! Well done to all the children on all their hard work this week.


This week we have been planning and writing our own stories, which had to include an ethical moral to the story. The children had to decode on characters, settings and scenarios and decide on how problems in the story were going to be resolved. In our toolkit for our writing, we had high quality noun phrases, a range of conjunctions and suffixes. Next week the children will be having fun creating a ‘Pick Your Own Pathway’ story outside!


We have been revising and consolidating how to give change this week. The children have worked with blank number lines to find the difference between the cost of an item and the amount paid.

Science Week

Next week is Outdoor Learning/Science Week. We will be spending a lot of time conducting lessons outdoors next week and the weather is forecast to be hot! Therefore, can you please ensure that you send your child to school with sun cream on and a suitable hat? We cannot apply sun cream in school ourselves.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
