Hello and welcome to 2M’s blog! We hope it gives you an insight into the children’s learning this year. We look forward to working with you to make sure your child has a happy and productive year and achieves their full potential!
Please take a look at our newsletters and Learning Logs to find out what’s going on each term.
Reading – Children are encouraged to read at home every night in order to become fluent, confident readers. As well as listening to your child read, ask lots of questions to ensure they understand the text.Thank you for your continued support with this.
Spellings – given out every Monday to practise at home each night. The children also have a copy in school which they practise each morning! The weekly spelling test is on Friday.
Maths – There are lots of things to practise at home which will help your child in school:
– Chant and recall 2, 5 and 10 times tables
– counting forwards and backwards to 100
– telling time
– using money
We used all of our learning characteristics today in our ICT lesson. We worked in groups to create mazes for our robots to move around so we had to use excellent communication skills. We labelled the right angles and measured the length of each section. We were very creative introducing different obstacles too! We were very independent and resilient in controlling our robots around the mazes. We had so much fun!
As our new topic is ‘City or Countryside?’ we were curious to find out about some fruits that could grow in the countryside. Once we’d done our research we used some of the fruits to make a delicious fruit crumble!
This week in Year 2 we are learning to write instructions. We pretended that some aliens had visited from out of space and had no idea how to make a jam sandwich! We made our own and then wrote some clear instructions for the aliens. We used time openers, imperative verbs and adverbs!

We were very excited today as it was our turn to look after the ducklings!
Our class story was George’s Marvellous Medicine. We had so much fun deciding on ingredients for our own medicine. Our favourite part of the day was using onomatopoeia to describe the sounds of the potion bubbling away.

We are turning into quite the chefs! Have a look at our photographs to see us making some delicious Cornish pasties this morning!
We had so much fun on our recent trip to Gilmoss Recycling Centre. We found out what happens to all our recycling and learnt lots of new information about which things we can and can’t recycle!
We had a fun day pretending we flew all the way to Australia to visit the different types of places. We visited the busy city of Sydney, the beautiful Surfer’s Paradise and the hot, dry outback. We came up with lots of adjectives and sentences to describe each place. Then we wrote postcards telling our friends all about it!
We’ve been very busy in maths the last couple of weeks! We have been multiplying and dividing. Take a look at our pictures…
