Welcome to Year Two

Welcome back to school and Year Two! This is a big year for our class and one we are all excited for.

This week we have been very lucky to have three new children start; Abigail, Yasseen and Akshaj – taking our class to a grand total of twenty-one! Can Mr. Sparks survive with that many when he is so used to having eighteen?


We have dived right into our new topic of the 1960s, learning about music of the time, creating some of our own artwork and researching The Beatles. The class created some groovy, psychedelic patterns using florescent powder paint. It was messy, but fun!

We have been practicing counting forwards and backwards in 2s and 10s in Maths. We have almost got our 2, 5 and 10 times tables going forwards and backwards perfect.

We have been trying to find information from a picture and predict what we think is going to happen in a story. We have also wrote our own story about going on a mysterious journey.

The class have settled back into school really well. Everyone has been given a classroom job. We have begun using Class Dojo to keep a record of our house points and the class have really enjoyed seeing their good work rewarded on the big screen.

Next week we will start our class book ‘A River’, keep practicing our addition and subtraction skills and will start P.E. lessons.

Monday – Swimming

Tuesday – P.E.

Wednesday – Forest School
