It's the final half term!
Wow, where has the year gone? The children have worked so hard and hopefully along the way they've picked up some happy memories. I say it every year, but I don't want to let these guys go. Can I go up to Year 3 with them please?
This term will see us visit Scarborough as part of our Seaside and Pirates topic. We're reading a great story called 'Stanley's Stick'. Stanley too visits the seaside, but he never goes anywhere without his stick. He uses his imagination to turn his stick into absolutely anything. Here are some pictures of us with our sticks. Can you guess what we are pretending they are?
Happy New Year.
Welcome back, I hope that everyone has had a peaceful and fun Christmas break. This term we will be a busy one with visits to The Alhambra Theater and The Royal Armouries to support our learning with our topic of 'The Magical Kingdom - Vicious Villans. Plus we are holding an after school movie club where the children will be able to extend their understanding of that period of time as well as what makes a good 'baddy.'
New Year = A New Class + A New Start
Well we're into October and and the New Year 2s feel as if they've always been in Year 2. They've settled down quickly and are busy getting to grips with the routines and the curriculum. This half term we are looking at ourselves and where we live. Here is a little taster of what has been going on!
On the 20th of September we walked to Cartwright Hall in Manningham Parkl to take part in a Lowry art workshop! Here are just a few pictures from our day.

In maths we will be continuing with addition and subtraction and how this helps us with measures; so around the home look at how we measure drinks, food, fabric cleaning products. We will be visiting a mosque to help us understand the similarities and differences of places of worship.

Welcome aboard to year 2. This term we will be learning about pirates; real and made up ones! In class we will be reading and writing Pirate adventure stories, and once we know what trickery they got up to we will learn all about real life pirates! We have a pirate cove in the classroom where we can secretly plot our attacks and hid our hoards of treasure. At the end of the term we will celebrate life as a pirate by joining reception class for a treasure hunt!
Welcome Back to Half Term 2! I hope you've had a fantastic half term break, and that you're ready for our next half term of hard work.

During our maths we will becoming more efficient at the formal operations of add, take away, times and divide, and we will apply these to problems which will reinforce our shape and handling data skills.
Welcome back to our new school year. I hope you all had an amazing summer!

In class we will be paying closer attention to our presentation of our work both orally and in writing.
