Online Safety and much more!

Hello everyone,

Its been a very busy week in Year 2.  As well as having tests, we have had a trip to Hall ‘i’th’ Wood and learned all about Safer Internet Day.

Did you enjoy the trip?  What was your favourite part?

Don’t forget about the Online Safety Competition!  I’m really looking forward to seeing as many children taking part as possible!

We watched some special cartoons on Safer Internet Day.  If you’d like to watch Hector’s World, please click here.

Please continue to enjoy the internet and stay safe online!

Here is my rap below if you’d like to watch it.  I’m sure you can do much better!

Over the next few weeks in English, we will be learning about Instructional texts in Year 2.

This week, we had looked at examples of imperative verbs (bossy verbs) and know that commands are used in instructions.

Can you think of some imperative verbs (bossy verbs)? Post a comment below!

Poetry Competition

Hello everyone!

We are currently learning about Poetry in our English lessons. Part of our Year 2 objectives mean that we need to learn and perform some poetry.

To make this more fun, we are going to have a poetry competition next week!  I have attached the poem that you need to practice reciting. You will also be given a paper copy at the end of the week.  The poem is Please Mrs Butler by Allan Ahlberg.

Have a go at performing the poem ready for school next week!

Think about:

  • Having a loud, clear voice
  • Using expression
  • Including actions
  • Being confident in front of your class

We hope you enjoy the poem! Good luck!

Mr D and Mrs M

Please Mrs Butler

Year Two Trip to Haigh Hall

Year Two had a fantastic day out at Haigh Hall recently. We enjoyed super sunshine and had a great time exploring the woods and identifying  lots of different types of trees and seeds. After lunch we all enjoyed playing in the fantastic playground.

What was your favourite part of the day?

Would you recommend a visit to Haigh Hall?

Peace Day

Year One loved celebrating Peace Day. We would like to thank parents for helping their children dress up in white and for supporting the day. Children learnt about peace through music, art, drama, english and all other areas across the curriculum.

Thank You

Traditional Tales Day

Year One had a fantastic time coming dressed up as their favourite traditional tale characters. They could tell their friends clues to help them guess what character they came dressed up as. Thank you to all parents once again for your continued support.


Next week’s learning

Next week in Year One we will be continuing with labels, lists and captions. We will be looking at a new book ‘Billy’s Bucket’. What do you think this book might be about?


In Maths children will be learning to recognise different denominations of coins and notes. They will also be learning to use different combinations of coins that equal the same amount.

Not a stick



This week in English Year One have been looking at the book ‘Not a Stick’. They have been using their imagination to write labels and captions to tell the rest of the class how they would use their stick. They really enjoyed reading the book and writing their own version of ‘Not a Stick’.




Can you use your imagination and write how you would use  a hat?

For example, it is a black, stripy magician’s hat
