Year 2 Blog Friday 29th April

Date: 29th Apr 2022 @ 4:49pm

Year 2 have had a great week of learning. We have enjoyed the lovely weather and getting outside for some of our learning.

In English the children have continued the novel Journey and written a brilliant story about their own adventure using paragraphs and great adjectives. In Maths we have learnt about multiplication and division. In Science this week the children have had a great lesson about plants and growing. They used their ‘Working Scientifically Skills’ to carry out an investigation into how well seeds grow in different light conditions. The children have planted some lettuce and radishes and are keeping a close eye to see how they are getting on in our polytunnel. The beans on their table are showing slight differences from last week. We will keep you updated on these! In French the children have continued learning the actions to match the French phonic sounds and also practised the weather phrases through games, songs and a story. The children acted out the story of the Resurrection of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit in RE this week. They loved acting out the story on our outdoor stage.

Online Safety Update – This week’s Online Safety Update is all about age-appropriate content online. Children can chance upon inappropriate content in various ways, from pop up ads to TikTok or YouTube Videos. In this guide you will find tips on a number of potential risks such as social media, gaming and adverts.


In Year 2, children should read for at least 15 minutes every night and discuss the book with an adult or older sibling. This will help with understanding the text and learning new words. VIPERS are available on the school wesite to help with questioning. 

Reading books are changed every Monday and sent home on Tuesday. Please remind your child to put their book bag in the box on Monday morning. However, if you need to change a book another time, we will change it as needed.



There will be a spelling quiz on Friday 6th May.  












You will have a Sumdog challenge with next week’s spellings to complete by next Friday.


At home, count in 2s from a number other than O. These become more tricky when you get higher up and then try going backwards for an extra challenge.

You will have a multiplication challenge and times table challenge on Sumdog to complete by next Friday.
