Amazing engagement in y4. This is the impact of partner talk discussion ensuring everyone is confident to answer and share their learning. Well done everyone.


What a great start to the year! So many children were incredibly resilient despite having missed the usual transition. They were happy and pleased to be back. So proud!

Rocco looking understatedly chuffed: he should be - he has 4A* and a place to study PPE at Oxford - I look forward to following his career (Rocco for PM in a few years?)

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2.

Welcome to Year 2 for Autumn 2 term everyone!

 Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to the second half of the Autumn term of this year. I hope that you have all had an enjoyable and restful break and that the children are refreshed and ready for our exciting new topic this half term. Our topic this term is ‘Awe and Wonder’ where the children will be exploring the language features, performances and meanings of poetry. This newsletter will provide you with all the information that you need regarding our expectations, trips and class topics. Please do come to us with any questions that you may have.


For the first 4 weeks of this half term we will be focusing our learning on the language features used in poetry. Our focus in English will be where the children will explore the poetic devices (e.g. rhyming), descriptive language and rich vocabulary used. The children will start off by developing their skills in using descriptive language such as adjectives, expanded noun phrases and similes through various Julia Donaldson texts including ‘Snail and the Whale’, ‘The Highway Rat’ and ‘Stick Man’. Reading with your child daily at home will heavily support the development of their vocabulary, descriptive language and reading fluency.


Last term our learning was based heavily on place value. This half term will we be focusing on addition and subtraction. We will start off with finding number bonds up to 20 (learning all of the different ways to make numbers up to 20). This is a foundation to adding and subtracting which will then be used and applied to adding larger numbers together.

We will then move onto word problems based on addition and subtraction which relate to real-life contexts. This will also incorporate SATs style questions.

 It is essential that children are practicing their fluency of numbers bonds and time tables regularly. Please take the time to help your child by practicing at home. If you are unsure of what type of games to use to make this learning time more engaging, come and speak to us, so we can best support you and your child.


Our PE days are Monday and Friday. It is essential that children arrive with a complete PE kit. Make sure all their clothes are labelled with their name clearly.

 Learning theme – Awe and Wonder

In the last four weeks of this term, we will be looking at the Christmas Story. This is a key part of the children’s R.E. (religious education) learning, so please ensure your child is able to participate.

We will learn about why it is an important story to know through imaginative lessons and a performance of a ‘Christmas Nativity Play’. The play is to be confirmed, however tickets will be available for the performance at the beginning of December. Please look out for year 2’s performance date in the newsletter. We hope you will all come along to support the children’s learning.
