Welcome to Year Two!
Welcome to the Year Two class page! My name is Miss Greer and I am the lucky Year Two class teacher, children will be assisted in their learning by Miss Duffy. Please take the time to explore our class page and see just how fantastic Year Two are. Don't forget to also check out our 'curriculum' page to find out more about what we are learning this year.
This term PE will be taught on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. Children will take part in Rugby Tots lessons on a Tuesday and Games sessions on a Friday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school each week as it is vital for health and safety reasons that children are wearing the correct PE uniform and pumps. PE kits can be purchased from the office.
Children will I’ll take home buster books every Friday for homework. Children are expected to complete 2 pages in each book and return it to school by the following Thursday for it to be marked. Children will also take home spellings each week to practise at home.
A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged. Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased at the main office. Children's reading books will be changed once a week.
This term we are reading the book Voices in the Park. This week we have been reading The Third Voice. We acted out parts of the story using freeze frames.

Can we change the shape of some materials?
This week in Science we made our very own SLIME. We wanted to find out if we could change the shape of materials. We discovered that using hot water made a difference compared to using cold water. When we used hot water the material was solid to touch but also changed into a liquid when it was left alone.
How to Trap a Dragon
This week we were very excited to see the Jack and the Beanstalk panto. It was really fun, we loved it especially all the super songs!
Chester Zoo Rangers
Which tights are the stretchiest?
This term in our English lessons we have been reading the story Dogger. We found the pictures of Dogger’s school fair to look really exciting so we decided to create our very own fair for Reception and Year One. To begin we decided on the games we would have, we then created instuctions for the games so the younger children would know how to play. We also created some posters so the other children knew when and where our fair was happening. It was a huge success and we had lots of fun!!
National Poetry Day
To celebrate National Poetry Day we took part in a BBC live lesson on poetry. We learnt about similes, metaphors and alliteration. We created some amazing similes and alliteration of our own.
Since we have started back this term we have been using lots of practical equipment in class exploring the place value of two digit numbers. We have been finding it quite the challenge using equipment such as numicon, place value counters and deans rods to represent different numbers and solve many reasoning problems. We have been thoroughly enjoying this challenge!!
