Firstly, can I say what an amazing class Mrs Ogden and I have- they have worked hard, played brilliantly, adapted amazingly and we are honestly so, so, so proud of them.
This week we have squeezed so much work in in the four days at school. In maths we moved onto column addition and subtraction. We practised spelling our common exception words and have been re-capping our phonics. We have been spotting split digraphs in words and learning about vowels/consonants.
We were very busy learning our Harvest Song, which I hope you enjoyed. In R.E we continued to talk about the celebration of Harvest and wrote some of our own Harvest thoughts.
Homework for the Half-Term Holiday

Can you believe we have just finished week 7? What a great start to our year. The children have been working so hard and I am very proud of them. As we approach the end of term I would just like to say thank you for all your hard work at home. Lots of children have been reading, practising spellings and completing homework set on here.
This week we have completed book reviews on Traction Man/Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog. We have been looking at exclamation marks and writing our own sentences in response to the story Supertato. In maths we have been continuing to add and subtract one digit numbers and multiples of ten. In history we have been learning about Mary Seacole- what an amazing, inspiring person! Have a little look at this video if you want share her story with your child- they may be able to tell you lots about her!
We have also been working hard on making our superhero capes and referring back to our designs from earlier in the term. We are very excited to show you the finished results!
Don't forget it is Non-Uniform day on Tuesday and the theme is fancy dress- perhaps there may be a few little superheroes appearing.
Here are some pictures of work that has been completed this week.
Our homework for this week is phonics based. Please click on the link below and play the game Picnic on Pluto. You can select any sound/s and play it as many times as your child wants to.
Please write in your child's reading record to indicate that you have completed this.
Have a lovely weekend!
The children have been working really hard this week and I am so proud of them. There have been lots of stickers dished out, treats awarded and our first set of Superstar Writers selected.
The children have been busy in geography learning about the countries that make up the U.K, the seas that surround it and the continents of the world. We have loved listening to this song in class.
The children have been learning about 2d and 3d shapes with Mrs Ogden. They have been learning shape names and some of their properties – ways of describing them. For homework, we thought that you might like to try these activities on BBC Bitesize.
Perhaps you could have a shape hunt to see how many 2d and 3d shapes you can find around the house. Talk about what you find. Which shape did you find the most or least of? Were there any shapes that you couldn’t find?
Hi there everyone! We have had a really busy week at school. In English, we are continuing to work on our sentences but also focusing on handwriting, especially where we place letters on a line. Mrs Walkden is working with our class, practising spellings and handwriting- I have already seen amazing progress!
Our Maths this week has been all about addition and this is the homework for the week ahead. Please access
where I would like your child to have a go at their number bonds to 10/20 or even maybe 100!
In Science, we have been looking at things that are living, dead and were once alive. We have been sorting items into the categories and looking at some very interesting objects such as snakeskin and a dead scorpion! Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying the investigation.
Another great week in school! We are so impressed with how well the children are coping with the routines in 2D. We are reminding children to put their book in the basket to be changed each day. This can be done on any day of the week.
As well as dance lessons on Mondays, we will be starting a second PE lesson on Thursday (1st October) with our other sports coach Mr Shingler. Please now send your child in on MONDAYS and THURSDAYS wearing jogging bottoms/leggings with trainers/pumps and their usual school tops/white PE t-shirt and jumper.
Homework will begin next week. Please let us know if you do not have access to a tablet/smartphone/printer.
We thought it would be nice to show you some of the displays that we have been busy working on in 2D...
The children have been painting their self-portraits over the last few weeks. They have been carefully adding detail and considering colours needed for their skin, eyes and hair. I am so impressed with their art skills, there are definitely a lot of future artists in our class.
We have also been creating some wonderful acrostic poems too.
Our 'Superhero' topic is now in full swing. We have been basing our work around the book Traction Man and have been busy completing superhero missions. Our superhero capes have been designed, which we will be turning into real capes in the coming weeks - watch out for Pizza Boy or Lava Girl coming to a street in Stretford soon!
Another busy week in school, which saw us start P.E. We did this in our uniform this week, but from Monday children are to come into school wearing some joggers/leggings and trainers/pumps. We had a great time with our dance instructor, Eve, who we will be having for the rest of the half-term.
Your child may have told you that they had been picking apples and pears. After a lesson all about Harvest we had some of our very own harvesting to do!(see photos below)
Thank you for your patience with reading, we will continue to monitor reading levels carefully and do our best to keep you supplied with enough books to read at home.
Homework will be found on this page in the next couple of weeks. Some of the tasks may need printing off or they may be completed online as we strive to become paperless. If you need any support with this please contact me. Please inform Mrs Daniels if you require homework to be printed out.
Here are some photos of things we have been doing this week-
A full week at school has shown us how amazing our new class is! I am sure there will be some very tired children leaving the gates today! They have been working so hard and also adjusting to new routines in Year 2.
In maths we have been learning how to represent 2 digit numbers using base ten and ten frames this week. We have read the story Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers and written some amazing sentences about what wonderful things we can see/hear/touch on planet Earth.
If you would like to share this story with your child here is a link to it being read aloud.
Welcome back! It has been so lovely to see the children back in school this week and we are so proud of how they have settled back in so well. We have had a busy week which has focused on work based on the book - The Colour Monster. The children produced some great writing about what makes them feel different emotions- it was very clear that rain makes us sad but going to the park makes us feel happy!
We made some shape monsters using 2D shapes in maths and we have begun creating art inspired by Jackson Pollock. The children have enjoyed playing with their friends once again and exploring the provision in their new class.
Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday morning.
Mrs Dempsey and Mrs Ogden
