 Miss Wilson


Today we had a visit from a barn owl, a burrowing owl, a kestrel and a peregrine falcon. We learnt lots of facts and saw some of the birds fly around. We learnt that the peregrine falcon is the fastest animal on earth! Our hall was too small for him to fly around.

The Dogs Trust Visit


Andrew visited from The Dogs Trust to tell us how we can act responsibly around dogs.


Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities    throughout the week to read a variety of texts. The children also choose a book from our reading corner.

PPA Time

Miss Wilson is out of class on a Monday afternoon.

During this time the children have Religious Education with Mrs.Adams and PE with Mr Caldecott. 


In Year 2, children are expected to complete one to two pieces of homework a week.

Your child has been provided with both CGP English and maths books to complete their homework. Each week we will set an activity. In addition, we will send homework in their purple books.



Weekly spellings will be every Friday. You should practise these throughout the week, ready to be tested on these on the following Friday Morning. 


PE will take place every Monday  and

Thursday. PE kits are to remain in school.


It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit or vegetables and milk.  We also encourage your child to bring water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch. 

The pupils can bring their own bottle of water each day.

As Mathematicians

We will be continuing to develop our understanding of place value. Using these skills to add and subtract. Looking at length and different units of measure. We will deepen our understanding of time and consolidate our Autumn 2 learning.


As Authors

We will write our own Non-Chronological Report of on Owls & Birds of Prey. We will focus on compound sentences, noun phrases and a range of subordinating conjunctions. We will then write our own innovated versions of The Owl Who Is Afraid Of The Dark.
