Friday 21st July
What an amazing last week we’ve had in year 2! On Monday, the children spent the morning with their new teacher, Miss Latimer. They were very pleased that they’ll be spending year 3 with her!
We had our special certificate assembly on Tuesday where every child in year 2 received a special certificate, unique to them. They were thrilled and have worked so hard throughout the year.
We had our final assembly today and Harry R won a special £20 voucher for the Bridges for his full attendance since the Easter holidays. Well done Harry!
Lily received a special £20 voucher for the cinema for her fantastic effort all year, supporting her friends and being an all round superstar!
All that’s left for myself and Mr Thompson to say is have an amazing summer break, stay safe and remember – you’re all super stars!
Reminder: School returns on Wednesday 6th September.
Friday 14th July
It’s been a busy week this week in year two – we’re almost ready for our holidays!
This week, we’ve had a musical week – The school choir performed Musical Madness on Monday, we performed Samba outdoors on Wednesday morning and we listened to Chris Little’s Rock band – The Academics – on Wednesday afternoon!
On Tuesday, we completed our road safety training. As you can see by our photographs, we know people who we should look out for and we now know what to wear to be seen!
We’ve ended this week with our end of year trip to Adventure Valley. We’ve had a great day making pizza and using the soft and outdoor play equipment. We really are ready for a rest now!
This week’s treasure box winner is Kai T for a super attitude to learning throughout year 2.
Our hand writer of the week this week is Finley – well done on your improved presentation- Keep it up!
Attendance: 96.4% – this is a fantastic achievement and we’ve exceeded our target of 96% – well done year 2!
Minutes late: 137 minutes (2hours 17 minutes). Although slightly lower than last week, this is still a concern. Please remember that our doors close at 8.50 prompt, so anybody who arrives after this time must go to the office. We begin learning every day at 8.50 so being even five minutes late has an effect on children’s learning.
It’s our final week in year 2 next week!
On Monday, we’ll be spending the morning with our new class teacher.
Tuesday 18th July is our school carnival. It starts at 1.30 and children should be collected from their classes. Remember to bring lots of money to buy our homemade gifts, have a go on the tombola and buy some sweet treats!
Friday 21st July is our last day. You can collect children from 1pm from their normal exit point. After 1.30pm children can be collected from the main hall doors.
Remember, school returns on Wednesday 6th September 2017!
Friday 7th July
We’ve had a fantastic week in year 2 learning more about our topic Carnival! The children have been busy designing a class flag and homemade gifts to sell at our school Summer Carnival on Tuesday 18th July.
In music lessons, Miss Lowe has been sharing more about ‘Samba’ and we’ve been using a range of percussion instruments to help create a carnival feel. We’ll be learning some special dance moves next week too!
Our treasure box star this week is Lily. She always shows great enthusiasm for learning new things and she’s a great friend to many of the year 2 children.
Our hand writer of the week is James for his improved presentation throughout the year.
Attendance: 93.2% which is well below our target. Lets work together to hit our target of 96% attendance.
Minutes late 165 minutes (2 hours 45 minutes) Please remember that our doors close at 8.50 prompt, so anybody who arrives after this time must go to the office. We begin learning every day at 8.50 so being even five minutes late has an effect on children’s learning.
Next week is story telling week in school. Parents are invited in to school on Thursday 13th July from 1.30 to come and enjoy some story telling activities with their child. Please enter through the hall doors.
The school choir will be performing ‘Musical Madness’ on Tuesday 11th July. Tickets are available in school at a cost of £1 per ticket.
Our class visit to Adventure Valley is Next Friday (7th July) so please make sure all trip letters are in by Monday 10th July at the latest.
Raffle tickets are on sale for our Summer Carnival. These are £1 a strip and they’re available from Miss Hodgson during morning break.
Lastly, a reminder that our school Summer Carnival is on Tuesday 18th July. There’ll be a range of stalls selling handmade goodies from each class.
Friday 30th June 2017
This week we’ve enjoyed learning more about our summer topic – Carnival! In music we started looking at different percussion instruments used and next week we’ll be using these along with some Samba moves outside (if the weather improves!).
We enjoyed our movie afternoon on Tuesday. We got to watch Moana in the hall and enjoyed hotdogs, crisps, drinks and sweet treats. It was the perfect way to send a rainy Tuesday afternoon!
This weeks treasure chest winner is Sophie for showing maturity and helping others in class with their work.
Our hand writer of the week is Charlie for his effort to improve his presentation.
Attendance: 94.5 %

Friday 23rd June 2017
We’ve had a busy week in Year 2 this week. Our sports day on Monday was fantastic. The sunshine really helped us get into the sporting spirit – although we had to drink lots of water to keep us cool.
Thursday saw our end of year assembly. We’d been practising this all week with Mr Stewart and Mr Thompson. Thank you to all of our parents and families for coming – we loved sharing our journey through year 2 with you.
Finally, we had a sporting afternoon at Farringdon on Friday. We had a fantastic time and completed lots of sporting activities like skipping and jumping over hurdles. The rain stayed away, but we though we might have got soaked at one point when the clouds came over!
Handwritier of the week this week is Kai – well done Kai, your presentation is super!
Our treasure box winner this week was Charlie for his fantastic, clear speaking in the class assembly.
Minutes late: 45 minutes
