Friday 22nd September
Well, what a fantastic week we have had. On Monday, we had a special delivery letter off Miss Cassidy. She told us how proud she was of our safety work and set us a challenge to buy, create and make resources for our year 1 and 2 outdoor space. After having a look at the space we decided to write back to Miss Cassidy to persuade her to give us some money to make the improvements.
On Monday afternoon we discussed ways we could raise the money to create an exciting outdoor learning environment. After lots of discussion the children have decided to hold an assembly (dragon’s den theme) for all parents and local businesses in the hope that they can help us achieve our goal to improve our outdoor space. Miss Cassidy came down to our class again and kindly gave us a contribution to start us off.
The rest of the week in English we have been learning skills to help us write persuasive letters to local businesses and all our parents to persuade them to come to our assembly. In design technology we started to think about what resources we would like, materials we would use and how we could create or buy them.
Yesterday (Thursday 21st) we came in to a trashed classroom! Somebody had been in our classroom over night. We decided to ask Mr Byers for the camera footage and found out that it was the Maths wizard.
The wizard STOLE our cheeky monkey prize box!!
Luckily he had sent us an email apologising and set us some challenges to retrieve our prize box. The children worked really hard to measure in cms different wands and successfully completed the challenge! Well done year 2!
Maisie received an achievement award today for reading her home reader every night. Keep it up Maisie.

Welcome to year 2! It has been lovely meeting all the children properly this week and getting to know them. We are looking forward to the year ahead and helping them learn and grow.
We have had a busy week. This week our topic has been ‘Safety’.
On Monday, in the poor weather we went on a trip to Silksworth Park. On the way there we discussed potential safety issues we could see. The children were really good at identifying potential risks and could explain how to avoid them.
In school we made a list of potential dangers at the park and we also explained to an alien ‘how to cross a road’ safely. Yesterday we designed safety posters to put up in school to show other children how to keep safe.
Our handwriter of the week this week is Amelia.
Kyle’s name was added to the golden book for always trying hard in maths and Amelia’s name was added for being the first person to read 5 books.
Our celebration certificate this week went to Kayleigh for putting 100% effort in to every lesson.
Year 2 will have PE every Tuesday and Wednesday. PE kits should be brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday. The children can use the MUGA on a Friday. Children must have a spare pair of shoes to wear on the MUGA.
