First Week in Year Two!

User Rating:  / 1

Wow! Can you believe we've already finished our first week in Year Two!? It's been so fun. We've shared what we know in maths and continued with our transition work based around 'The Night Pirates'. We really enjoyed doing some observational drawings of shells and discussing equality, which is our year group value.

Time Week!

User Rating:  / 2

This week we have been celebrating time week! We've done lots of things to develop our confidence with telling the time. We've practised telling the time to the nearest five minute on anologue and digital clocks, as well as working out what time it will be in 30 minutes or an hour! We've also been learning a 'Months of the Year' poem in Guided Reading.

Book Award Challenge!

User Rating:  / 2

As you know at Whitehouse Common we are participating in ‘The Book Award’ challenge. We are doing this to encourage all children to read a range of books from different genres and authors for pleasure.

The list of different ‘challenges’ can be found under ‘curriculum’- ‘book awards’ - ‘year 2’ on the school website.

Once the children have completed all thirty challenges, they will be placed into a prize draw at the end of the year, where they will be in with a chance of winning a… Kindle Fire!

Kindle Fire

Mr. Vickers recommends reading ‘The Twits’, Mrs. Hollis recommends ‘A Very First Poetry Book’ and Mrs. Parkes recommends ‘The Hodge Heg’.

If you want to complete some challenges at home, please clearly write ‘Book Award’ as well as the title of the book and the challenge it achieves in your child’s planner.

Happy reading!

World Book Day

User Rating:  / 2

We've taken World Book Day a little further in year 2... We've been celebrating it all week! In English we have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We have used this to think of, and write different types of sentence, including; statements, commands, questions and exclamations! It has been great fun, we really enjoyed dressing up and reading with the year 6 children too.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time!
