Term 2 -  The Crow's Tale


This term we will be reading ‘The Crow’s Tale’ by Naomi Howarth. We will be writing our own version of the story and will be making it really exciting by using lots of adjectives, extended noun phrases and some similes to describe the characters and settings. We will also be improving our punctuation by using commas, question marks, exclamation marks and even apostrophes!


In Maths, we will be learning to identify coins and notes and solve simple money problems, as well as learning how to give change. We will also be increasing our skills in counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and then learning strategies to help us with Multiplication.





Milne class PE days: Tuesday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoors).

Bond class PE days: Wednesday (Outdoor) and Thursday (indoor). 


Children should wear P.E. kit (white t-shirt and black tracksuit or leggings), green jumper if it is cold) on PE days.


Children should also bring a water bottle to school so that they do not have to leave a lesson when they get thirsty

New - Year 2 Red Bus Book Challenge


Below is the Year 2 book Red Bus challenge. We'd love to see the children each read as many of these as they can during the year- this is a challenge and there will be prizes for those who read the most! Many of them are quite quick reads and are full of colourful pictures, so are ideal if your child finds reading a struggle. There are also some longer books for faster readers. The books have been carefully chosen because we love them, and we are sure the children will too!

All books are available in school but due to having limited numbers of some we do ask that any which are borrowed are returned quickly. We also encourage all home books to be returned on a daily basis so that we can keep a record of how much your child is reading at home. Any reading you can do with them really does help them so much.
