Here is a list of tasks that you can complete at home... KEEP LEARNING!



Use the picture ABOVE as a stimulus for writing:

  • A character description
  • A story

  • A setting description

You could write this straight into the book school has provided. Some of the Year 2 writing targets include the use of:

  • Conjunctions (connectives - and, but, so, because, or)
  • Punctuation e.g. capital letters, full stops, question marks, exclamation marks, apostrophes for contractions (don’t) and apostrophes for possession (Jack’s coat)
  • Expanded noun phrases (adjectives)

Please encourage your child to edit and improve their writing. They have been trained to do this!

Science Week- Dinosaurs

We came into class to find some footprints and leaves. Which dinosaur could they belong to? Class 6 investigated dinosaur poo to find out if they were a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. We used the Ipads to research information about diplodocus dinosaurs and we created diplodocus skeleton artwork using art straws! We used our knowledge of these dinosaurs to write information texts.   

Y2 Spring 2 Newsletter

Class 6 were visited by a nutritionist from LinkforLife today. The children talked about how harmful sugar is for our teeth. We also looked at the eatwell guide and discussed the foods in each group. 

Today Class 6 made their own dark, dark towns using junk modelling, chalk and sugar paper. They painted the buildings black and used sugar paper to add colour. Class 6 really enjoyed making their own Funnybones towns.

Next week Year 2 are going to attend mass at St. Joseph's Church on Friday 24th January. The children wanted to invite their parents to mass so we made mass invites!

In Class 6 we have been learning all about the story of Jonah and the big fish.



We have made our own whale using paper plates. The moral of the story was that we should always listen to God and follow in Jesus’ footsteps. We also learned that God will always forgive us.

Stay and Pray for Parents

Today, Class 6 prayed together with their families. The children’s parents were invited into school to take part in our Epiphany prayer and worship. The children planned and led this, choosing hymns, bidding prayers, fabric and psalms.

Today, Class 6 learned all about the Feast of the Epiphany. We discussed why it would have taken the kings so long to get to Bethlehem. The children made 3-crown shortbread biscuits each to remind them of this important event. They took these home with the following Bible scripture to share with their families.

On Monday 6th January, Class 6 found out what their new text would be for this half term! The children were given a problem to solve! They had to use the rhyme to help them put the big skeleton back together. 
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break! We have lots of exciting new things to learn this half term. Check out our newsletter to find out more!
