Thank you SO much for all your wonderful messages, cake and gifts. You are incredibly kind.


We are really proud of your children who have been consistently brilliant all year. We will miss each and every one of them. Thank you too for your continued support.


Have a wonderful summer break.



Well done to all the children for reading at home 4490 times since starting Year 2 in September 2022.


As a class, you have earned 9 amazing treats for every block of 500 points. Super work Year 2

Nineth 500 Reading points


On Monday 17th July, we achieved our final Year 2 set of 500 points for reading at home. (We actually achieved 490, but the teachers thought that we DID deserve our special treat)


Well done everyone!

Keep up your enthusiasm for reading!




We are marvellous mathematicians!


Planning a fraction party

We used our knowledge of halves, quarters and thirds to make our food choices eg. Half a cup of juice or three quarters of a cup? We then decorated our own paper plate.

Preparing and making......

Having made our choices, we then set about preparing our food..... pouring, cutting, spreading and of course lots of maths skills like counting, measuring and checking!!

Eating and enjoying......

This was our reward after lunch! We really enjoyed consuming our fraction food while watching a video called 'The Birthday Party'



This week in PSHE, we have been learning about girls' and boys' bodies. First, we started by naming the outside or 'public' parts like head, ears, knees etc. We then labelled two bodies and learned the technical terms for 'private' parts. Finally, we dressed the bodies to demonstrate how these areas of the body are kept private, also discussing functions of clothes- to keep warm, look nice, to keep private parts private 


We have done a science investigation about germs, how they spread and the best way to get rid of them! We had three children with glitter 'germs'. One child cleaned their hands with a paper towel, one with water and one with soap and water.



Learning about healthy eating and making the right choices,

we engaged in lots of discussion and sorted the cards into the appropriate columns, justifying our opinions.

Eighth 500 Reading points


On Monday 19th June, we achieved another target of 500 points for reading at home.


Here are some photos of our teddy day reward.


Well done everyone!

Keep up your enthusiasm for reading!

Tiddalick came to visit!

We had a visit from Tiddalick the frog. We were able to ask him questions about why he drank all the water in the lakes, creeks and billabongs so we could learn a little bit more about his reasons. We then wrote him some wonderful persuasive letters to encourage him to give back all the water. Miss Pike was very sad to have missed Tiddalick's visit as she was out of class.

What's the weather?

We have been learning about the weather in Australia and how it compares to the weather in The UK. We became weather reporters for the day! We hope you enjoy our videos!
