Your teachers are Mrs McKay and Mrs Hardstaff
God chose lots of special people to help Him, including you !
We will be thinking about why God chose us and how we are special and unique. What special gifts has God given you?
We will also learn about other special people God Chose to do important jobs . Two of these people are Abraham and Moses. You won't believe what happened to Moses when he was a baby !
In Year 2 we will be learning lots of new mathematical skills. We will learn to count in multiples of 2 , 3 , 5 and 10 and put numbers in order on a number line.
You could practise counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's at home.
We will also be learning how to solve problems using addition and subtraction.

Look at some work we have done to help us learn about counting in multiples .
We will learn about shapes and their properties.
Do you know the correct mathematical name for these shapes ?
What about these 3d shapes ?
We have been looking at different materials as part of our Science work and talking about what different things are made of. Look at our clever sorting .
We went on an observational walk around school to see what different materials we could find.
We presented out findings in block graph or bar charts. Paige Archie and Georgia even made theirs out of multilink cubes.
Have a look :
The material we found most frequently in school was Plastic.
Lasdt week we visited Weaver Hall Museum in Northwich. We were keen to find out more about Samuel Pepys and The Great Fire of London. What made the fire last so long and do so much damage?
We had a wonderful visit and enjoyed learning with Jane and Jeremiah. Have a look at some of the photos.
Can you see a 'besum' (this is an old word for a broom).
Poor Poppy and Ryan were thrown in the stocks !! Eden and Laurence worked hard with the fire beaters to put out the fire and we discovered that the houses were made of 'wattle and daub.' This catches fire easily and that is one reason why the fire spread.
We learnt about Fire fighting a long time ago. There were no fire appliances like we have today and it was hard work putting a fire out with just buckets of water.
We invited The White Watch Fire Fighting Team from Ellesmere Port to come to our school and teach us some more about fire fighting today and what materials they use to help keep people safe and put out fires.
We were all VERY excited when the blue lights came flashing onto the playground !!
Fire Fighter Gary showed us some of the cutting equipment they use to help get people out of buildings and cars.
Watch out everyone, Gary was wanting to cut our toe nails!!
Fire Fighter Leah showed us the special clothes fire fighters have to wear to help protect them.
We loved trying on the helmet !
Guess Who ?
It's Sania !!!
and this is Urszula !
Can you see Dylan ?
We even helped to squirt water over the fence using the enormous and powerful hose.
What a fantastic morning. Thank you White Watch Team.
Everybody wanted to draw pictures of the visit. Here are just a few of them.
Scarlett read the writing on the side of the appliance.
'Safety At Home '
Look at the drivers seat and blue light in Travis's picture.
Poppy has tried to capture the noise the fire engine made and Reece ( below) has drawn all the hoses.
William noticed lots of ladders on the top of the fire appliance.
Amazing detail Layla. You remembered a lot !
What a beautiful picture of Fire Fighter Leah by Ryan.
It was European Day of Languages on Wednesday 26th September . Yr 2 enjoyed some Spanish food, learnt some songs in Spanish and worked on some Spanish style art.
Paella es delicioso !
Me gusta la carne .
Naranja por favour !
