Year 2 Blog Friday 6th May

Date: 6th May 2022 @ 1:10pm

Year 2 have had a fantastic week of learning. The children are working hard to use their manners throughout the day and follow our Golden Rules.

In English the children have continued the novel Journey and looked at expanded noun phrases to make their writing exciting to read. The children have also read the Visitor and started The Night Gardener where they have written descriptions for Topiary. In Maths we have continued learning about multiplication and division including using arrays to share and group. In Geography the children have completed their fact files about Australian animals. In Art we are focussing on the Queens Jubilee and the children have been learning toning skills ready for the Queen portraits next week.  

Online Safety UpdateThis week’s Online Safety Update is all about a rise in children accessing Roblox gaming platform. This includes children in our infant classes. This week’s guide dives into what to expect your children to find when they use Roblox including any potential risks they may meet. These risks include in-app purchases and chatting to strangers online.


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.

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 13th May.












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


At home, count in 3s from a number other than O. These become trickier when you get higher up and then try going backwards for an extra challenge.

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