Year 2

Dear Year 2,

And so another half-term comes to an end! Well done on all your hard work in all subjects. Next term we will start our topic in History on Explorers, so watch this space for exciting things to come!


For half-term, it will be really great if you can keep up the reading on a daily basis and make sure you are learning your 2, 5 and 10 times tables, ready for our new maths topic on fractions!


Have a happy half term!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year Two,


Thank you for all your hard work in English this week, where our look at the story of the boy and the rocket really 'launched' a lot of fabulous writing!

We will finish our topic on division this week and next week will look at 2D shapes! They are all around us!

Your homework is a sort of revision sheet in maths, looking at topics we have covered and some that you may recall from Year 1. Could it please be returned by the 13th February?


Spellings as ever will be sent out on Friday.


Happy weekend

Mrs Shedlon

Dear Year two,


Another busy week, especially in our topic on division. Ask a grown up if they need any help with sharing or grouping things! Maybe sharing a pizza cut into 6 pieces and three people to share it? What is the division question? (Hint : How many pieces do you have to begin with? How many groups does it need to be divided into?)


Spellings will be coming home on Friday, along with a piece of writing for you do, inspired by a picture. I would like at least four full sentences, with capital letters, full stops, describing words, maybe even an adverb! (a ly word eg quietly).


Have a good weekend

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year two,


Another busy week of work, looking at multiplication and arrays!

Your Homework this week is to have a go at the array sheet. ( I've popped an explanation in for the grown ups in case the don't understand!).

You will also have more spellings to learn for next Friday 31 January 2020.


Next week we start our topic on division.


Your plates of food from Malawi look really great well done!

Happy weekend

Mrs Sheldon

Dear year 2,

I hope your spelling test went ok! Did you feel you'd learned them properly? If not, make sure you really have a good go at your new ones this week! It was our first one, so we'll get into the swing!


This week you have spellings and learning your 5 times table too!


Happy weekend

Mrs Shedlon

Dear Year 2

Sorry I didn't post at the end of last week. My aim is always to update this page for you and your parents, so we all know what we have been up to!


Last week, we started our topic on multiplication. We need to think of it as repeated addition. EG 3 + 3 = 2 X 3 (2 lots of three). Please also note you have your two times table to revise this week. We really need you to know this for work in class.


You also got your first set of spellings and a Homework book. You will have a test on your spellings every Friday, so please practise as much as you can in your Homework book or on any scrap paper at home.


We continue our English work on The Minpins by Roald Dahl. What could be the secret of The Forest of Sins?


Here's to another busy ( that's a Red word, meaning it has an odd sound in it that may confuse us in its spelling!) Week.

Mrs Sheldon and Mrs Kerinssmiley



Dear Year 2,


We've nearly got all our friends back! I hope all of you who are still poorly are able to join us for the end of term fun!

Next week we will be looking at our 2, 5 and 10 times tables to get ready for our maths topic on multiplication in the Spring term. What other words can you find for multiply?


We will also be looking at the Christmas story as the term draws to a close, thinking about different characters may have felt.

Oh and then there's the panto!


Happy weekend

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 2!!!


WOW!!! I was so impressed with your performances at the play! What a lot of little stars we have! I am so sorry for those of you who missed it. We really missed you!

Let's hope we can all be better as we head for Christmas!

Happy weekend

Mrs Sheldonsmiley

Dear year 2,

The play is next week! Who would believe it was upon us already!


Keep learning those lines and please can all costumes be in for Monday 2nd December, because we will be doing a run through in them! That includes plimsolls as well!

Have a restful weekend and maybe pop to see our part of the Stowe Advent calendar in the Grotto up at Stowe Gardens.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear year 2,


So we had a great rehearsal on Thursday and so many of you know your words so well! Keep on practicing though, remembering to speak up and to face your audience!


We have nearly conquered the ski slope in Maths! We'll carry on with adding two 2 digit numbers, using partitioning to help us. Show someone at home if you can remember!


Please remember to look through your spelling books also. We are looking at the suffix 'ly', making adverbs from adjectives.


Have a great weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 2,

Tis the season! You now have your nativity words on a sheet to learn at home. Please do this as often as possible, so we can rehearse without words at school! I know you can do it! Remember Harvest!


Also, don't forget to keep an eye out for the things you see on the way to school. What animals do you see? What plants? What are the roads like? What is the weather like?


You will be continuing with addition next week, but starting to use a column method. Mums and Dads, if you are unsure, look at the school's calculation policy on the website or just ask!


Thank you and enjoy the Christmas Fayre!

Mrs Sheldon


Dear Year Two


Welcome back after half term. I hope you all had a restful, fun time! (I think I just wrote a noun phrase there!!)


We continue to look at addition, focusing on number bonds to ten and partitioning numbers so we really understand the value of our two digit numbers. Test mum and dad or brothers and sisters!


In English we are looking at planning and re telling a known story! The Bear and the Piano remains our best book!


Have a happy weekend!

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year two,


Well what fantastic dragon's eyes you made today! We really used our doughdisco fingers to create some stunning designs. Next week we will paint them to make them even more effective.


Could you please remember to show your parents your spelling log, which shows which sound we are working on this week. Perhaps you can even tell someone what the spelling rule is?


Next week we start a new book called The Bear and the Piano. It's a lovely story upon which to base our English.


We will continue our work on addition in Maths.


Happy weekend


Mrs Sheldon

Dear year 2,


Well done on the fantastic Harvest Assembly! It was our first big performance and I was so proud of you all.

This week you took home a green book with our spelling sound. I have invited your parents to look for this sound in your reading and make sure you are really confident with the spelling. This week it was the 'or' sound where we spell it 'a' before l or ll. For example, tall, walk. This is a tricky spelling! You can also write the words in your book to practice handwriting.


We will be looking at one more/less next week in Maths, so brush up on your counting skills!

Happy weekend.

Mrs Sheldon

Dear Year 2,


Well we are well in to the term now and all getting to know each other! Hope you are having the fun we promised too!


Our Harvest Festival looms, so if you have some words to learn, please try them on someone at home! The words should also be in every day please!


Keep on reading every night and if you have a spare moment, practice counting in three's!

Thank you

Mrs Sheldon
