Autumn Term (1)

Week 1


Welcome back after the holiday’s. I hope everyone is refreshed and ready to go. We have started back really well this week and are busy learning all the changes that have taken place. English we are learning about ‘Grandad’s Island’. A story that we are learning and going to eventually change. Maths is all about inspirational maths and how making mistakes is something that we can learn from. We also started shared reading and the mini-big quiz. Next week you will find out who won. 

Week 2

This week has been very busy in Year 2 with lots of things going on.

In maths, as you can see from the photo, we have been a very busy class investigating place value using Numicon and Dienes blocks to help us understand. In English we have been learning our story in more depth and using actions to help us. Through the week, whilst learning the story, we have also tried writing the first couple of paragraphs. We have done a very good job, although we need to remember some of our writing skills like capital letters and full stops!


Our mini-big quiz winner is …. Dauntless. Well done keep up the good reading!


Week 3

This week has Toucan class have been working very hard in all maths, English, shared reading and topic. We have started to look at changing some things in our story that we learned last week. In maths we have continued to explore two digit numbers and how we can describe them and compare them with each other. We have learned about human and physical features in topic, just in time for our trip to Portsdown Hill. We are now ready to explore the Isle of Wight and compare the different places we know of. 

This half term we are reading

Well done to our Reader of the Week – POPPY!

Well done to our Star of the week Scarlett-Rose.


Week 4

We been working very hard this week in all our subjects. In reading we have now finished our first text, but unfortunately as we have been so busy with our reading lessons, maths, English and topic we ran out of time in our timetable to take part in this weeks mini big quiz. We will try and squeeze it in next week. We have now started to adapt, learn and now write our new version of Grand’s Island and there has been some fantastic work here. Keep it up Toucan Class.



Also we had a fantastic time on the Isle of Wight, looking at the physical and human features of both Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. We also had a brilliant contest over who could build the best sand castle using physical features around them.

Well done to all of you. It was far too hard to pick a winner.

Well done to our Star of the Week – Montgomery!
