We LOVED The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark so much that we invited SMJ Falconry into school. Rhiannon brought in different types of owls to show us.

We were lucky enough to have our very own Great Fire of London. Thanks to our friends in the Astronauts who made some fantastic replica houses and HUGE thanks to Mr Evans for setting fire to them all. This was a fantastic experience for our children and really helped them to understand what `empathy` means. It also fit in beautifully with our Literacy Key text as we had just read about Plop, the barn owl, enjoying his very first campfire. How lucky are we to have our very own forest school?

Our Learning Autumn 2 2019

We are reading FANTASTIC MR FOX  this half term. 

Scroll down and keep looking below for recent photographs of our learning.


Our class is taught by myself Monday-Thursday, and then Mr Evans on Fridays. Mrs Smith is our fabulous, full time teaching assistant and will always be ready to welcome your children in each morning when school starts at 8.50am. Mrs Smith is also our very own welfare assistant and takes good care of your children at lunchtime. We also have Mrs Simms working in our class as a 1:1 support. Life in Year 2 is very busy and exciting and we look forward to working together with you this year. If you ever have any problems or concerns, please catch one of our team - the end of the day is better. School finishes at 3.30pm and you may pick your child up from the Y2 classroom door. Please be patient as we get to know you as we like to hand your child over at the end of each day. Please let us know if someone other than you is picking your child up.   Keep checking back on our page for important updates, or to see what exciting things we have been doing in class and check book bags regularly for letters.


Starting just before October half term, we send spellings home on Friday afternoons, these will be tested the following Friday. It is important to go through these with your child regularly at home. We always encourage children to aim for GREEN on their tests and to use the spellings correctly in their writing. In addition to spellings and daily reading, your child will also bring home number facts to learn for a test the following Friday.



Learning to read fluently is one of the most important things your child will ever do,
and being a great reader will open so many doors to them as they grow into young
adults. We cannot emphasise how important it is to read with your child daily and
discuss the text. Please sign your child’s reading diary indicating the book has been
read and make a comment on their reading – we check these each week and hope to
create a really positive partnership between home and school where a love of reading is
fostered and encouraged.

Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school. Our PE lessons will be on Wednesday afternoons
and Thursday mornings this year, although these times are sometimes subject
to change at short notice. Children wearing earrings in school on these days must have them removed, or they will not be able to take part. Long hair must be tied up everyday, but especially on PE days. It is also worth checking each half term that pumps still fit  and remember that we are only purple t shirts are to be worn.

Other useful information:
Please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled as things can easily get
misplaced. Your child will need a warm, waterproof coat and sensible shoes. Please
ensure your child has a named water bottle as we encourage children to keep hydrated
throughout the day. Fresh fruit is provided for all KS1 children during morning and
afternoon break and milk can be ordered directly from Cool Milk at


We thank-you for your continued support and are looking forward to making sure this year is a happy, enjoyable and successful year for your child.
We are looking forward to working together this year,
Kind regards
Mrs Roberts, Mr Evans, Mrs Smith and Mrs Simms

Florence Nightingale Day. We invited Mrs Ashby to bring history to life. We enjoyed dressing up as characters from Florence Nightingale's lifetime.

Life Education Bus. We enjoyed learning more about our bodies and of course, seeing Harold the giraffe again.
