Welcome back to a new year. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We have new topics and learning for this term which you can view below.
24.11.17 In October Y2 entered a writing competition 'Young Writers'. They hold regular competitions open to all schools. If pupils are successful then their work is published in a book which parents can then order to buy. Y2 had to write riddles which they had great fun doing. Apart from 2 children who were unfortunately away at the time, the rest of the class entered. WELL I have great pleasure in announcing that today we received a letter explaining that there were over 12,000 entries for this competition......and...........all of Y2's entries were successful. Very, very exciting news and a huge well done to Y2. Today the children will be coming home with a letter about the competition. As parents you need to give parental permission for your child's work to be published. So please fill in the forms and return to address given a.s.a.p please. I believe the book will be published on the 28th Feb 2018 when order forms will be sent home to you, so you can order copies.
After the success of this competition Y2 are about to enter a story writing competition with 'Young Writers'. So when we hear back (poss. Jan/Feb) I will of course update you all.
Have a great weekend
As promised here is our fabulous display with our super painters. Well done to Y2
This week Y2 finished their Vincent Van Gogh pictures of 'The Sunflowers' and 'A Starry Night'. As you can see they have done tremendously well. 'The Sunflowers' are up in class (as you can see below) and 'A Starry Night' will be displayed in the KS2 corridor next term, so more photos to follow. Next term we will look at the painter L.S.Lowry.
A huge well done to Y2, you should be proud of becoming such budding painters. Have a wonderful half term.
Y2 had fun practicing their 2 x tables this week. They had to beat the clock and the racing car. Lots of competitive children in class. This is a great app for all the tables, getting progressively harder in each level. It is free to download onto phones and tablets. So have a go at home. Good luck winning!!
We have had a great week of learning in Year 2, here are some photos to share of our place value lesson in class today. (13.10.17)
Have a good weekend Year 2 you have worked hard.
