Term 1

W/C 25th September


This week saw Phoenix class looking at France for European Day of Languages.  We explored key features along with the geography of the country.  We then used LanguageNut to help us count to 10 and also learn some basic French greetings.  The class also tried some typical French foods.


I am very impressed with the commitment the class is showing towards their homework, in particular Doodle Maths and Doodle Spell.  We have come 2nd in Doodle Spell for the second week and I am sure we will get the trophy soon.


We have been having fun making and using funny props for our short skits within our Hollywood topic.



European Day of Languages

W/C 18th September 2023


The class this week have really enjoyed thinking about the props we could use as part of our comedy topic within Hollywood.  Thank you to those who have brought in their own funny props from home to help develop ideas and also to make us laugh!


The children have shown perseverance with our English as writing 3 sentences for some has been tricky but I am very proud of the effort and presentation of their learning.


In maths we have been looking at ordering 2 digit numbers look at the tens and then the ones columns and we will be continuing with this next week.


Thank you to those who have completed  their Doodle daily homework.  We came 2nd in Doodle Spell this week and I know the class are excited to try and win next week.  The weekly spellings are set as an assignment with the Fridays date.  These can only be accessed once the previous weeks test has been completed. Any questions please do ask.

The children have really settled in well to our Year 2 routine this week.  Thank you to the parents and carers who came to the meet the teacher meeting.  Please remember that I am available before and after school if needed and I can also be contacted on here via the contact form.


The children had ukulele for the first time this week with Mr Parkinson and they were all excited to experience this new instrument and begin to learn how to play.


We are having fun with our Hollywood topic and we thought about all the things that make up laugh, happy to say that I made some of the children's lists laugh

W/C: 4th September 2023 


Well done year 2 on an amazing first week back! Thank you to all those who competed their Doodle Maths and Doodle Spell homework.  It is an expectation that the children Doodle every school evening as it compliments the learning we do in class that day. Also our weekly spellings are on Doodle Spell and these need to be practised ready for Friday.


In topic we looked on google maps to locate Hollywood and found it in the state of California. We then compared this to our county of Wiltshire.


PE is on a Wednesday afternoon and the children will need daps/trainers in school every day for the mile run/HIIT.
