Circle Time

The year 2 enjoyed their circle time with Miss Motley. The children discussed alternative curriculum and what other lessons children desire to be taught. We had some great ideas such as cooking. Children responded in a positive manner.


LO- To add equal groups.

Children related equal groups to repeated addition. They were able to add three one digit numbers together and link this learning to groups.



LO- To be able to make equal groups.

The children learnt about making equal groups to demonstrate their understanding of the new language. The children enjoyed making groups and counting the amounts in each groups. They were able to identify which groups were equal and unequal and familiarised themselves with the word ‘equal’ and ‘unequal’.

We have been learning how to count forward and back in tens using this video to help us.

 Our Investors in Pupils display tells us what our individual targets are for this half term.

Please ask your child about their target and support them to achieve their goals.


The formation of letters is very important in English. We therefore practise how to form letters correctly using the cursive hand writing script. Please ensure your child practises their handwriting at home. 


Children in Year 2 are enjoying reading in their new Reading Area.  Please support your child to read at home. 

The more you read,

the more you will know.

The more that you learn,

the more places you'll go.
