World Book Day


Today we came to school dressed as our favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day. We also had a special assembly to find out which classes were part of the winning whole school story. We wrote the resolution for the story called "The Unexpected Adventure". Our story was chosen as the winner by Mrs Johns our Chair of governors. 


Hit The Button


Here is a link to an online program to help children practise their times tables to complete the maths star challenges. Also there are sections for practising number bonds and doubles and halves. It works on all operating systems (PC, Apple and Android). There is even a link to download the APP version.

Christmas Jumper Day


Today we wore Christmas jumpers to raise money for Cancer Research UK in memory of one of our teaching assistants who lost his short battle with cancer earlier in the year. We also shared Christmas stories as he was passionate about reading and Christmas.


Christmas Party - Tuesday 12th December 


On Tuesday 12th December we will be having our class party. We will not need any food sent in from home as the kitchen are preparing us party food as an alternative to your child's usual lunch. This will be eaten at the end of our party. On this day, please send your child in party clothes.


Many Thanks,


The Year 2 Team

Year 2 fire visit


On Tuesday, year 2 were visited by Mr Leary; a fire officer from Plympton Fire Station to talk to the children about being safe with matches and fire, checking smoke alarms and how to perform the “Stop, Drop and Roll” technique if a piece of clothing caught on fire. They also watched a cartoon about a firefly who foolishly played with matches. It was pleasing to see how many children knew what number to dial in an emergency and who to ask for if there was a fire. Mr Leary explained the importance of knowing their postcode and getting parents to check that they have smoke alarms and that they work.


Weather Forecasts

Still image for this video
This term we have been looking at weather. We designed our own symbols and used the internet to find out about weather in different places. We also looked at the countries of the UK and used a compass to describe a location as either North, South, East or West. We also learned that we live in south west England. To Finish our topic we drew our own weather maps and wrote a commentary for our own weather forecasts. Here is one for you to watch.
