On Tuesday, Year 2 had so much fun on the gymnastic equipment in the hall. Thank you to Year 6 and Brenda for setting this up for us – we really appreciated it. We explored different ways to climb, and tried to think of creative ways to jump and hold balances. Have a look at these photos to see how we got on!
Next week we will be continuing to learn about fractions: half, quarter and thirds!
I am so proud of every single member of Class 2 this week. You have all settled back into your learning so well and remembered all of the rules that we follow in the class to keep each other safe. You are super-duper Superstars! Also, a great big Cathedral welcome to Lacey – our newest member of Year 2! Thank you to everyone in Year 2 for making Lacey feel so welcome, and well done to Lacey for your kind nature towards other children in the class.
Cruz was our star photographer this week and managed to take some great action shots during our PE lesson this week on basketball! Thank you Cruz!
On Thursday we learnt all about how easy it is to spread germs. We used green paint to represent the germs – one person started off with ‘germ’ hands and before long the whole class had ‘germs’ on their hands! After this, we washed our hands thoroughly until the ‘germs’ disappeared!
Next week we are going to learn all about Fractions in our Maths lesson.
This week in Year 2 we have been decorating our classrooms for Christmas. We had a lot of fun making our room extra-festive. We especially enjoyed our reading time at the end of the day, listening to our story and watching the twinkling lights on our tree. Great job Year 2!
Don’t forget to bring your Christmas cards in next week and post them in our Christmas postbox!
Please practise singing along with this recording.

This week, Year 2 have been making our worry dolls. In PSHE we read the book ‘Silly Billy’ by Anthony Browne which gave us the idea.
In traditional and modern times, people would tell their doll about their sorrows, fears and worries, then hide it under their pillow during the night. Worry dolls are small, mostly hand-made dolls that originate from the highland indigenous people of Guatemala but are also found in Mexico.
Next week Year 2 will be starting to learn about subtraction.
