On Friday, year 2 had an exciting visit from some owls to help us learn about the different super powers that owls have and learn why nocturnal animals such as owls come out during the night. We were also very lucky that we got to hold some owls. Here are some photos of the owls we got to meet!
Welcome back Year 2D
We are really looking forward to continuing your learning journey in year 2 and seeing what you can achieve this week, this term and this year!
Hopefully you have had a great summer and are coming back fresh, relaxed, excited and mostly ready to show high learning zones and can use ‘Calm’ to help you reach high well being too!
Looking forward to connecting with you this week and finding out all about your holidays!
WOW! What a fantastic week in year 2 for year 2! We have had a great week getting to know each other and connecting. Check out our learning zones as we have kept on learning today. Our learning zones were so high that we took notice of year 2 expectations so we have kept moving by taking part in some special PE with Mr Morrison. We now must give to others this weekend and celebrate the story of successfully becoming year 2s. Well done year 2!
We are so proud
We all had an amazing trip to Hazard Alley, where we learnt how to stay safe in different situations. Following our Hazard Alley trip, the Safety Centre has sent out the following press release:
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of the amazing children and their families in Year 2D for all of your hard work this year and the amazing support you have given this year. You have all worked hard to achieve lots of amazing things this year and I shall definitely miss you all. However this doesn’t mean I will not see you around school and feel free to come and connect and say hello if you see me! Now off to the next step in your journey!
Remember your ‘Calm’ in year 3 as you add ‘Balance’ to your life skills and know that with Open, Grow, Believe you can achieve anything. Friendship is definitely the key and I want to thank you all for your friendship this year!
Look forward to seeing your ‘gotcha smiles’ on Monday with your new teams!
From Mr Morrison
At last 2D have managed to win the attendance trophy after trying hard for the whole year to get our hands on the elusive attendance trophy! Well done for coming in every day. Lets keep it up and see if we can get 100% for the whole term!
Thank you to those who attended the meetings this week. It was a great chance to discuss your thoughts and questions in preparation for the assessments. Please find attached the information shared on each evening. If you have any further questions please speak to your class teacher.
This week year 2 have been taking the time to hunt facts and write about the 6 steps of chocolate production from the bean to the bar.
When you are doing maths homework at home, including Mathletics, it may be useful to refer to the attachment below. It has the main approaches we use for each of the calculations and fractions. Your child may not be familiar with all the methods and they will probably have a method they prefer, which is absolutely fine. If you do have any concerns or questions, come and ask their class teacher and we would be happy to discuss the methods with you.
Following conversations at parents evening, we have uploaded some useful question starters to use when reading with your child at home.
