We have welcomed Mrs Squires this week to our team. She will be our class TA for the rest of the year.
We have had a very busy week practising our play ready for the performances next week. We hope you have your tickets! The children have been perfecting their dance moves and remembering their lines. The children have written about the Christmas story this week in English to match their RE topic. In maths, we have continued adding and subtracting but now we are looking at two-two digit numbers. We have also been learning how to do some tests this week. With the Devon Wildlife Trust, we learnt all about deciduous trees and identified some of the leaves we found. It was snowing during this session so thank you so much for all the warm clothing!
The highlight of next week will be performing our play. We will also be visiting the church for Christingle on Thursday afternoon. We look forward to seeing you at our play next week!
Have a great weekend.

Hi Every one
We hope that you are all well.
The children have made a fantastic start on practising the school play. They are beginning to know when the say their lines and the singing is sounding great. Please can they continue to practise next week as the better they know their lines the more confident they will feel. We have finished writing our Goldilocks sequel story in English. We have edited it. At the beginning of next week, they will be learning and writing the Christmas story. In maths, we have been looking at adding one-digit numbers to two-digit number including bridging ten. We will continue this next week. We are also continuing learning the number facts really fluently. The children have made some beautiful Christmas tree decorations to sell at the fair in art.
We hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the Christmas Fair!
All best Year 2 Team
The children have coped with some change this week with a new teacher but they have done very well. They should have Mrs Murch on Monday to Wednesday and me on Thursday and Friday. Any concerns, please do let me know.
It is a Thursday blog this week. The children have been working really hard at re-telling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears from Goldilocks' perspective. We have seen some amazing acting this week to help the children with their writing. Next week, they are going to write a sequel to Goldilocks and the Three Bears. In maths, we have continued to work on addition and subtraction. We have learnt how to add and subtract ones and now we are looking at adding and subtracting tens. We have continued our science lessons outside with the Devon Wildlife Trust. We have learnt all about food chains. This afternoon, we started our science space unit by learning what is space. In PE, we will be continuing our gym lesson. We have also been practising the play in preparation for the performance. It looks like it will be a cracking performance!
Thank you so much for all your support, as ever,
Misss Keen and the Year 2 Team
This week, we have continued with adding and subtracting in maths. We have been learning how to use different equipment to help with adding and subtracting. We have focused on number lines. In English, we have been writing wanted posters and letters of apology from Goldilocks to the bears. We completed our science lesson outside with the Devon Wildlife Trust. The children were very enthusiastic about finding woodlice and learning about their habitats. The children are enjoying gym in the hall on Friday during their Saints Southwest slot. We have also started running through our play ready for the Christmas performance. We will continue with this learning next week.
We hope you have a great weekend.

It feels like a very eventful week back with the interruption of the storm. We hope the rest of the half term will run smoothly!
The children have continued to look at efficient ways to add up using number bonds. They have been looking at making ten to help support them. For example, if you have 8 + 3, then you can think of it as 8 + 2 = 10 and then 10 + 1. They can then using this to help them add other numbers e.g. 78 + 3. We are also learning all the number bonds to 20 off by heart to support them with more complicated calculations later in school. In English, we have started reading the story of Goldilocks. We are going to look at two versions of Goldilocks to compare them and discuss how they are different or the same. We will have our Saints lesson as usual on Friday afternoon and we will start looking at being safe in PSHE.
Next week, we should be starting our Devon Wildlife science sessions. Just a reminder that the children will need suitable outdoor clothing.
Hope you have a great and less stormy weekend!
