Friday 11th June 2021

Welcome back! It has been lovely to see everyone again, Miss Hodgson and I have loved hearing the stories of your week off. We cannot believe we have only 5 weeks left with you 🙁

We have ended this week with our movie day. This morning, we took some material into the Secret Garden and built our own dens. We enjoyed ice lollies and lots of treats throughout the day and finished off with watching a film with food and sweets.

In maths, we have focused on 3d shapes. We have looked at the properties and have used stickers to show the edges, vertices and faces.

In English, we have moved onto our new topic ‘Seaside Sensation,’ and we are loving our new text ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s catastrophe.’ It has some tricky words in, so we used the computers to search inline dictionaries to find their meaning. Our computing lessons of researching using the internet came in really handy! We also enjoyed some role play of the story outdoors.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

See you on Monday!

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Half term is upon us and what an exciting 7 weeks we have had in year 2. Just 6 more weeks left in the infants!

This week we have had so much fun. On Thursday, we celebrated our whole school history day by dressing up in different eras – we were the Ancient Egyptians. Everyone looked amazing!

We enjoyed learning about the Egyptians, mummifying an apple and some Egyptian dancing.

On Friday, it was our wellbeing day. We made a card for Julie and gave gifts as she retires from Plains Farm, she will be sadly missed!

On Monday, we brought together our lunchbox designs from DT to make our own lunch boxes.

We hope you have a fantastic week off and stay safe.

See you all in June!

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Friday 21st May 2021

Just one more week to go until half term! Once again, year 2 have been absolutely fab and have worked so hard!

In English, we worked in pairs to create mind maps to plan out our non-chronological report. We then used these to write our reports all about pirates. We then worked in small groups to edit and improve out writing by correcting spellings/ adding in missing words and getting partners to read our work to check it makes sense.

In maths, we have finished our 4th week focusing on addition and subtraction. We have continued to focus on ‘exchanging’ and have practiced subtracting just tens, then just ones.

We are still loving our music lessons with our tutor Rebecca. We are getting so good at playing the glockenspiel – this week we practiced a rock ballad and performed it.

For D & T, we are designing a packed lunch for Pirate Paddy. So far, we have evaluated baskets, evaluated lunchboxes and have looked at materials we would use and designed our own. Next week, we will be making them!

In computing, continuing with our unit of using the internet, we were learning to take photos that we could add to our blog. We discussed photos that were/ were not appropriate for the blog so decided to showcase our best pieces of work for you all.  Next week, we will be having a go at adding them with a caption so make sure you check back here next week!

Please remember, homework is set on showbie on a Friday and is due the following Wednesday.  Spellings are given out every Friday and are tested the following Friday – they are specific to your child’s phonics.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Friday 14th May 2021

We have had a brilliant week in year 2 with lots of hard work. Today sees the return of the ‘Plainsy Platinum Pass’, our winner this week was Layla for showing amazing resilience in all lessons. We have also kick started our focus on attendance and punctuality – remember you’ve got to be in it to win it!

This week in English, we have been focusing on some SPaG skills such as: conjunctions and past tense. Homework this week is linked to capital letters, something which the children need to ensure they are secure with before leaving year 2.

In maths, we have continued to focus on addition and subtraction. We have continued to learn about crossing the ten and have used resources to support us with this. We have been learning the word ‘exchange’ to support us with crossing over the boundary.

In science, we have finished off our ‘animals including humans’ topic with a focus on personal hygiene. We looked at ways we stay clean and the importance of good hygiene. We conducted the glitter experiment to test out the importance of hand washing correctly with soap and warm water.

Homework is set on Showbie every Friday and is to be completed by the following Wednesday.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Friday 7th May 2021

Well we have had an absolutely amazing day celebrating ‘Number Day’ to raise money for the NSPCC – thank you for your donations!

We have enjoyed a range of games, such as ‘helping the bees’ which involved using our multiples of 2, 5 and 10. As well as the ‘Numicon Garden,’ which was a competition to ‘fill the gardens’ using the same numicon – leaving no gaps!

For our final activity, we had to fish the ducks out of the ‘water.’ We worked in teams to compete by answering the maths question and fishing out the correct duck – well done Chase’s team who stormed ahead with 6 points.

In English, we have begun reading our new class text ‘Pirates’ which is a non-chronological report. We have enjoyed identifying the features as well as delving deeper into the vocabulary within it.

In maths, we are continuing to focus on addition and subtraction. We are using resources to help us ‘cross the boundary’ to the next 10. We are learning even more so how important number bonds to 10 are as we continue to practice “Get to 10” to help us with this.

In R.E we are loving learning about Buddhism. This week, we have been looking at ‘Wesak’ which is the most important Buddhist celebration, which celebrates the life of Buddha. In Thailand and Indonesia, they make their own lanterns to celebrate – so we had a go at making our own too!

Please remember, homework is set on showbie on a Friday and is due the following Wednesday.  Spellings are given out every Friday and are tested the following Friday – they are specific to your child’s phonics.

Have a lovely weekend.

Friday 23rd April 2021

We have had a brilliant start to the summer term this past fortnight. We have began our new topic of ‘Shiver Me Timbers’ and have loved getting into the pirate spirit! We had a blast with Miss Hodgson and Mrs Quill making pirate hats, eye patches and doing lots of role play in the character of a pirate!

In English, we are focusing on the text ‘Jake’s First Day’. We have focused on conjunctions, punctuation and different sentence types. We have also enjoyed some peer assessment and checking our partner’s work.

In maths, we are recapping some key skills from year 1 linked to number and place value and this week have taken lots of time to get used to using number lines!

In science, we are focusing on animals, including humans. We have enjoyed looking at animal babies and matching them to their adult. We have also looked at the timeline of growth for humans starting at birth.

Every Tuesday, we are lucky to have Rebecca come into school. She is a specialised music teacher and is teaching us how to play the glockenspiel. We are having so much fun, this week we focused on the note ‘E’.

In R.E, we are focusing on Buddhism. So far, we have looked at the story of Buddha and some Buddhist symbols.

Homework is set on Showbie every Friday and is to be completed by the following Wednesday.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Friday 26th March 2021

Well we have made it! Spring term has passed us by and what a term it has been! The children have settled back into school life so well and Miss Hodgson and I are so proud of them. Thank you for the support we have received and thank you so much for those of you that have bought raffle tickets and sweet bags to raise money for our outdoor area – we raised a whopping £590!!!! We hope you have a relaxing break and enjoy the Easter holidays.

On Monday, we had a very strange day as an egg appeared on our school field. We were sent a video of a dragon at one of the other schools in our trust. The council asked for a full description of the dragon so that they could keep an eye on it, so that’s exactly what we did. First, we worked in groups to gather ideas for describing the dragon. Then, we wrote our own character descriptions of him.

In R.E, we looked at Easter and how flowers symbolise new life. We created our own flowers using recycled materials to represent this. On Friday, we tasted hot cross buns, as we had also been learning about foods Christians eat to celebrate Easter. There were mixed opinions from the children on these!

In geography, we compared life in the UK to life in Kenya, we located both countries on the map, looked at their flags then wrote about our daily routine here in the UK. We then watched a clip from Omisalle, a young girl from Kenya, and looked at how different her life is.

The children have been given their numbots login details, please try and access this online at least 3 times per week please.

School reopens on Monday 12th April – see you all then.

Stay safe and have a lovely break! Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xx

Friday 5th February 2021

I am missing you all an awful lot! I am so pleased I am able to contact you all on showbie and I have received some lovely photos and videos. I post regularly but I wanted to share some of your amazing work with the whole school.

Last week, our showbie superstars were Frankie and Luke, you two have completed every piece of learning set and your photos and videos have made me smile everyday! Well done.

This week, our showbie superstars are: Finley and Maja, once again 2 well deserved winners. You two have tried hard with every bit of work set, I’m so impressed!

Look at some of these amazing ice catchers the boys and girls created for wellbeing Friday!

I’ve been so impressed with the maths work completed… don’t forget about those English tasks though, writing is also a key part of your learning.

I look forward to see your work again next week.

Love Miss Davison xx

Thursday 17th December 2020

Well, we have made it! Christmas is upon us and this is our last blog post for 2020! I wanted to thank you on behalf of myself and Miss Hodgson for the lovely cards and gifts we have received. But most importantly, we would like to say a HUGE well done to the children of year 2! They have come to school with smiles on their faces and positive mindsets all round. We hope you and your families have a happy and safe Christmas. We will see you in the New Year!

This week, we have had a fulfilled time with lots of fun and laughter. Have a look at our Christmas shenanigans!

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to have a session with Sukhi, a ‘Relax Kids’ specialist. She was teaching us about staying calm, positive mindsets and what to do if we feel a bit anxious or worried.

On Wednesday, we had a fab time at our Christmas party, the children had some fab dance moves! We even had a visit from Santa and his elf.

On Thursday, we had one last dance around the Christmas tree.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson xxxx

Friday 11th December 2020

Happy Christmas Jumper Day! The children have had a fab day and loved their Christmas dinner.

We have just 4 more ‘getty ups’ and Christmas is quite literally just around the corner! According to our elf Buddy, only 14 more sleeps!

Miss Hodgson and I just want to say a huge well done to all of the children, they impress us more and more each day and they really are an amazing class. We have worked super hard on our ‘Plainsy Express’ window and the children are so thrilled it is finished!

This week, we have been getting Christmassy with advent calendars and Christmas cards, we hope you like them!

In R.E, our focus is Christianity. We are looking at the importance and meaning of light at Christmas. On Monday, we made wreaths and found out the different meanings of the candles. On Tuesday, we made our own Christingles, it really was a challenge getting those candles in!

In English this week, we worked our little socks off to squeeze as much learning in as possible so that we could complete our final pieces for our diary entries so we don’t have to do them next week! Once we had written the final outcomes, we worked on changing our writing from a diary entry to a 3rd person recount on the Great Fire of London.

In maths, we have enjoyed looking at fractions again – ask your children about what we know about ½ and 2/4! We were also introduced to thirds this week.

We continued with our art and practicing some of the drawing skills needed for our final piece. First, we looked at different lines: vertical, horizontal, diagonal, zigzag and curved. After that, we experimented with some different materials.

Reminders:

  • P.E is on a Wednesday ONLY.
  • Reading books are to be brought in on a Thursday and a new one will be given to children on a Friday – our new reading incentive encourages children to read at least 4 times to earn an extra playtime.
  • Spellings linked to the children’s phonics are given out on a Friday – please learn these throughout the week, ready for your child’s spelling test on a Friday.
  • Homework will be set again on showbie, as previously mentioned, if you are unable to complete the work online, complete it on paper and take a photo to upload to showbie.

Friday 4th December 2020

Well, we have finally made it to December! On Tuesday, we came into school to find the return of a very cheeky elf… we have named him Buddy. So far this week, he has filled our advent calendar and dangled it from the roof, wrapped our whiteboard, stole Miss Davison’s lunch box and got stuck inside and today he had a cuddle with Fred Frog. Hopefully he behaves himself over the weekend…

In English, we have moved onto our non-fiction genre of recounts. We will be writing a diary entry linking in with our topic of ‘The Great Fire of London.’ We began the week by working in pairs to look at different diary entries to find similarities and differences, as well as searching for key features.

In maths, we have worked super hard with our measurement focus on length and height. We recapped using a ruler, then moved onto using <>= to compare and order lengths. We finished off the week by using the four operations to compare lengths – this really got our brains working.

We began our art topic this week, and started off by exploring artwork by famous artists from 1666 who painted The Great Fire of London. We discussed likes, dislikes, what we could see and what colours the artists had used.

In P.E, we continued to practice our agility and coordination skills by playing different games with our ‘Great Fire Flames.’ The aim was to not let anyone ‘put out/ steal’ your flames. We absolutely loved it!

Just 2 small weeks to go everyone… Have a lovely weekend, love Miss Davison and Miss Hodgson x

Friday 20th November 2020

Yet again, this week has been fab and the children have been amazing. Miss Quill and I are so impressed with your hard work and determination to learn – well done!

In English this week, we used all of the skills we have been learning the past week, and put them together to write our final pieces of Goldilocks and The Queen’s Palace. We then transformed our pieces by using contrasting adjectives and expanded noun phrases. Emily remembered our DT unit of moving pictures to create her own moving picture for the story – amazing work Emily!

In maths, we have followed on from multiplication by moving onto division. We have used resources to support our understanding as well as arrays. Some of us even noticed you could count in multiples to find the answer too!

In history this week, we have been introduced to The Great Fire of London. We began by comparing life in London from the past to life in London in the present day. We then looked at some of the jobs people had back then. We also looked at some scenarios people may have face back then and now and compared how they could be solved back in 1666.  

In P.E, we practiced some agility and coordination skills combined with maths! We drew some good old hopscotches, ladders and lines for ‘tight rope walking.’ We had so much fun!  We used the hopscotch to practice our counting in ones, multiples, forwards and backwards. These are fab if you have any chalk at home – we would definitely recommend.

This week, the children have received letters regarding our new app ‘Showbie,’ we will be using this for homework alongside education city and purple mash, but it allows the children to access their own groups and discuss work with other children and myself.

Reminders:

  • P.E is on a Wednesday ONLY.
  • Reading books are to be brought in on a Thursday and a new one will be given to children on a Friday.
  • Spellings linked to the children’s phonics are given out on a Friday – please learn these throughout the week, ready for your child’s spelling test on a Friday.

Friday 13th November 2020

Today we have celebrated ‘Children in Need’ Day at school. We came into school  in non-uniform – some of us even dressed as Pudsey! We discussed what a charity is and how charities can help children less fortunate than us.

This week, a maths wizard left us a note… He gave us the number 81 and said that was his answer, but what was his question? The children absolutely loved investigating the number 81, we explored place value, addition and subtraction, missing number problems and word problems – all created by the children! Miss Quill and I are super impressed with the questions created – we have definitely succeeded the maths magician’s challenge!

In maths, we began looking at multiplication. We began by identifying equal groups, then moved into repeated addition, then arrays.

In English this week, we have looked at some of the SPaG needed to write our stories of Goldilocks and the Queen’s Palace. We recapped conjunctions, adjectives and a range of punctuation.

We have been spending most afternoons submerged in our history topic. We have continued with the Gunpowder Plot. This week, we each became a character from the Plot, made our masks, then used role play to act out what part we had in the plot.

The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. The After School Sport Club will then run for five weeks until December 18 and children and young people can take part live by visiting our YouTube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/YouthSportTrust

Have a great weekend everyone!

Friday 6th November 2020

Welcome back! It has been lovely to see all of the children again after half term. What better way to start the new half term than celebrating Christmas early! We have had a fab day dressing in our Christmas PJs and decorating our classrooms. We wrote letters to Santa and have left them next to our class tree for them to be collected!

During our wellbeing session this month, we looked at safety outdoors and how we can keep ourselves safe.

Also this week, we were introduced to our new topic! There was a box left in our class filled with images and objects which we had to use as clue to guess our new topic. We guessed it correct – LONDON! This half term, we will be learning all about London, past and present and delving deeper into the history of The Great Fire of London. This week, the children also have a small home learning activity, please take the time to talk to your children/ watch some videos/ phone some relatives to help your children learn some interesting facts about the Gunpowder Plot.

During maths this week, we have been focussing on shapes. We recapped 2d and 3d shapes with their properties. We then looked at symmetry and using the mirrors to find lines of symmetry of shapes.

In English, we began our new genre – narrative. For the first 3 weeks, we are focusing on the traditional tale- with a slight twist – ‘Goldilocks and the Queens Palace.’ This week, we have loved creating Talk4Writing maps, role play and looking at the features of traditional tales.

Reminders:

•P.E is on Monday and Wednesday – come to school in your P.E kit.

Friday 16th October 2020

Well, one week left before we break up for half term and what a brilliant half term it has been. I have loved getting to know the children and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has to offer! We have been super lucky this week to have had Miss Quill teaching us for maths and English.

In English, we have been practicing some of the SPaG needed for our non-chronological reports. We have started some year 2 objectives this week, which we have found a little tricky, so homework this week is linked to conjunctions to support us with this.

In maths, we have been getting familiar with the concrete resources to help us with place value. We have used: base 10, place value counters and tens frames to support us in understanding how many 10s and 1s a number has. At the end of the week, we used <>= to compare numbers, then had a go on Friday at ordering them.

In P.E, we had so much fun playing some team games, linked to coordination.

We have been busy, busy, busy with our DT topic this week. So far, we have made sliders, levers and wheels! We have been testing out different mechanisms this week, ready to design and make our own moving story next week!

Reminders:

•P.E is on Monday and Wednesday – come to school in your P.E kit.

•Homework is set on education city every Friday and must be completed by the following Wednesday – homework will become unavailable to children after the Wednesday, so please inform me if your child is unable to complete it in time.

Friday 9th October 2020

Another fab week in year 2 and another week closer to our half term holidays. Today, the children came into school dressed in their bright clothes to celebrate World Mental Health Day. We discussed some things we could do to our friends to make them happy or make them smile.

In English, we began our non-fiction topic of non-chronological reports – our focus is castles. We have enjoyed learning about the key features. On Wednesday, we had our very first lesson using a dictionary to find the meaning of tricky words. And on Thursday, we worked in groups to create our own mind maps full of information about castles.

In maths, we have loved learning all about fractions. We have looked at halves and quarters of shape, amounts of objects and quantities.

In science, we conducted our own experiments to find out how different materials change. We tried bending, squashing, stretching and twisting – we didn’t enjoy the smelly socks!

In P.E we had a fabulous – but windy lesson outdoors. This week, we looked at jumping. We learnt it in 5 easy steps:  1) keep your head up looking straight ahead, 2) bend your knees, 3) swing your arms forwards, 4) jump up, 5) land.

In R.E this week, we were learning about Venerable Bede. We enjoyed learning about his life and how important he was to the Christian religion.

We began our DT topic today, which has a focus on moving pictures. We started off our unit today by exploring and evaluating existing moving stories. The Jolly Christmas Postman was a class favourite!

Reminders:

  • P.E is on Monday and Wednesday – come to school in your P.E kit.

Friday 2nd October 2020

Well done to our lovely year 2 class this week who have worked super hard. All of your hard work is paying off as the improvements in all of your work is amazing.

This week in our English lessons, we pulled all of our learning together to write our final pieces for George and the dragon. On Tuesday we had a go at editing an improving. After learning some new skills to transform our story, we changed it to Georgina and the dragon and had a go at some role play. Then on Friday, we transformed our work to include comparative adjectives (words with the –er, est suffix on). The improvements from Monday on the children’s work was outstanding!

In maths, we have looked at shapes this week. We began with 2d shapes them moved onto 3d shapes towards the end of the week. We have enjoyed used the actual shapes in our lessons which has supported us to find the properties accurately.

On Monday, in P.E, we had a go at practicing different jumps. We began to build on this on our lesson on Wednesday but unfortunately the weather was not on our side!

In R.E, the children enjoyed learning about the 10 commandments and understanding why these rules are important to Christians and Jews.

Reminders:

  • P.E is on Monday and Wednesday – come to school in your P.E kit.
  • Homework is set on education city every Friday and must be completed by the following Wednesday – homework will become unavailable to children after the Wednesday, so please inform me if your child is unable to complete it in time.

Friday 25th September 2020

We have had a fabulous week in year 2. I must say, Mrs Quill and I are absolutely loving being your teachers!

Today, we have enjoyed spending the afternoon having cakes, biscuits and juice for MacMillan coffee afternoon. Thank you all for the donations.

Today, it has also been wellbeing Friday. We enjoyed discussing feelings throughout lockdown and how we felt in preparation for coming back to school. We then had a go at signing instead of singing in music. I must say, there were some fantastic performances from the children. We ended the week with some yoga which focused on handwashing and keeping safe.

In English, we started off with retelling the story using Talk for Writing which involves acting out the story whilst saying it out loud. We then began some recaps of year 1 objectives such as full stops and capital letters, past tense words, using the conjunction ‘and’ to join sentences and using adjectives to describe and make our writing more interesting.

In maths, we have had a fun filled week of measuring: length and height and mass and weight. We started off the week visiting our secret garden to familiarise ourselves with the language of ‘shortest, longest and tallest’ to describe length and height. We then used cubes to measure length and height and mass and weight. Before moving onto the unit measurements of cm, m, g and kg.

We enjoyed science outside this week too. Still focusing on materials, we looked around school to find objects and discussed what their raw material is.

A huge well done to those children that completed their homework online. Remember, homework is given on a Friday and is checked on a Wednesday. If children do not complete it they can do so at break time.

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Davison and Mrs Quill x

Friday 18th September 2020

Well I am absolutely over the moon to be back in school and back with our lovely class. We have spent 2 days together this week and I have loved it!  

I have been having a look at how busy the children have been with the supply teacher Mrs Elliott and it looks like they have had lots of fun!

In English, we began our topic of ‘Once upon a castle’ and read our text ‘George and the Dragon.’ This week, we focussed on making predictions, sequencing the story and we enjoyed using role play to act out the story.

In maths, we continued to focus on position and direction, we were looking at half turns, full turns and three- quarter turns. I must say, I am super impressed with how the children are remembering their left and right!

We started our science this week. This half term we are focussing on materials. We looked at some raw materials and discussed how they could be used as everyday materials.

In R.E, we are looking at Venerable Bede but to begin, we have looked at what communities we belong to. This week, we had a go at creating our own family tree.

We enjoyed P.E outside again this week. We are enjoying learning about social distancing with some games. This week, we introduced some equipment to try and practice our ball skills.

Some good news! Mrs Owen has been working alongside the kitchen staff to bring you a brand new menu with some delicious foods to choose from. Have a look and see what takes your fancy!

Hello year 2! What a strange week we have had. I wanted to say I’m very proud of you for how well you have all dealt with this little hiccup in learning and I am so impressed with what I have been hearing from Mrs Elliott. She has been telling me how fab you have all been when coming into school every morning, how hard you have been working and how well you have been listening – so well done!

I know this week in maths, you have been practicing position and direction and learning your left and right – this is pretty tough so well done. Don’t forget the special “hand trick” to help you remember. In English, I hope you have been enjoying some tasks around Beauty and the Beast recapping some of the year 1 skills.

Please remember, on Monday and Wednesday we have P.E and you must come into school wearing your P.E kits. Those who do not wear their kits or forget them unfortunately will not be able to take part.

Keep working hard, keep smiling and I’ll see you all very soon!

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Please find attached a maths task and a reading task. The reading task is a little longer so you might want to work with an adult on this. Read the text, then have a go at answering the questions.

Stay safe and we’ll see you very soon.
Love Miss Davison and Mrs Quill x

Friday 4th September 2020

Hello everyone and welcome back to school! Mrs Quill and I are absolutely over the moon to be your teachers this year and we have loved getting to know you all. You are all so lovely we know you are going to be a fab year group!

This week, we have settled ourselves back into school life with some ‘getting to know you’ activities, as well as creating some posters to remind us of good hygiene and handwashing skills. We have also enjoyed spending the afternoons with our old teachers. A huge well done to the boys and girls who put themselves forward to be our school council and anti-bullying leaders!

Here are some photos from this week. Mrs Quill and I hope you have enjoyed your first few days back and that you enjoy your weekend!


Thank you to everyone for following our one way system when arriving and leaving school. To limit the number of people gathering together please ensure you arrive to collect your child at the correct time. Not too early or late and please be respectful of our neighbours at all times.
