Sumdog Challenge Spellings –  Common Exception words



This week in Year 2


We  enjoyed a lovely yoga session on Tuesday with Katie from South Ribble.


This week we started our new novel 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Roald Dahl. We wrote descriptions about the main characters and used dictionaries to explore new vocabulary  will come across in the books. We also wrote a lovely piece of writing about the anniversary of the D-Day landings.


This week we started learning about 2D shapes and lines of symmetry.


This week we started our new branch of learning called 'Dialogue and Scripture'. We read scripture from Luke (10: 25-37) The The Parable of the Good Samaritan. We explored the statement ' Love your neighbour as you love yourself' and wrote a reflection about 'who is my neighbour' in my own life. 

Forest School

This week we went for a walk to spot all the growing that has been happening over the past few weeks. We remembered the story about the Boggarts and we looked out for them.
On our walk, we collected different flowers and grasses. We then used elastic bands or wool to make a weaving frame and made a piece of art. We really concentrated and encouraged each other.
We also had time for some child-initiated learning and a game.


In Geography this week we learnt about human and physical features in Africa. We learnt some of the countries names from Africa and the flags associated with them.


#30 Days Wild

Please could you send a plastic yoghurt/milk tub in with your child - we are going to make some recycled bird feeders for 30 days wild.
