19.03.20 – Today is Mrs Adamson’s first day not in school.  She is finding it all very strange and finds herself wondering what everyone is up to.

An improvement in her spelling and speed.

17.01.20 – What a fantastic start to the new term! We have hit the ground running in all areas of the curriculum.  In English we have been reading about Bob the Man on the Moon and have started writing our own stories for his friends Billy and Sam.  In maths we have been learning all about multiplication. We love using TT Rockstars to help us learn our times tables. The first week back we had our Explorer’s Day! We learnt about some famous explorers from Rose and Zoe as well as taking part in a range of explorer activities.  Check out some of our work below!


Autumn Term

04.10.19 – We are starting to change the story of the Three Little Pigs in English.  We have had to think of our own characters and the different materials they might use to build their houses.  We also created a timeline of houses in History – looking at what the very first house looked like.  We noticed the change in materials used in the houses.  In the forest we enjoyed playing in the mud and attempting to make our own mud round house.

27.09.19 – This week we have been picking up the pace with our maths.  We have learnt how to partition two digit numbers in different ways.  We have used part part whole models and the base ten equipment to help us.  On Thursday was our first time in the ICT suite, we had to learn to log on using our own username and password.  Once on we used Google Maps to locate our houses in Baildon.

20.09.19 – What a week! We’ve done so much learning this week.  We’ve been trying really hard to use different conjunctions in our writing, as well as working our way through the story of the Three Little Pigs.  In Topic we looked more closely at different types of houses, we looked around our local area to see if we could spot the different houses.

13.09.19 – This week we have been focusing on our writing.  We’ve been writing the story of the Three Little Pigs.  In the forest we made houses out of different materials.  Some of us used the sticks, some of us used the rocks and some of us used anything we could find.  We made little fairy size houses and houses big enough for us to hide in.  Mrs Adamson pretended to be the BIG BAD Wolf and tried to blow the houses down.

Welcome back! What a great first day we’ve had! We’ve picked out our new drawers, found our seats at the tables and even managed to cram in some learning amongst all the catching up!  In English we had to act out the story of The Three Little Pigs.  We did lots of place value work in maths and read lots of different books in guided reading!

Fantastic first day back Year 2! Let’s keep up the good work!
