Easter Bonnet Winners - April 2018

Congratulations to Minnie and Olivia for winning Year 2's Bonnet parade. Hope you enjoyed the lovely chocolate eggs!!

This term in Literacy, children in year 2 will be reading The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch which is linked to their Design and Technology topic.

Our learning will consist of:

- sentences which use commands identified in the writing of instructions.

- the use of commas when writing lists within a sentence.

- using apostrophes to contract words such as (do not ) to ( don't )

- using adjectives to describe settings and characters in a story


In maths, children will be learning about fractions finding 1/2 ,1/4, 1/3 and 3/4 of given amounts and shapes.

They will also be working with coins up to the value of £2 finding the correct coins to meet the price of certain items and recognise when there should be change given and how much


They will continue to have 'quick maths' tests to build their speed when adding and subtracting numbers up to 20 by mental recall.


In Design and Technology Children are to design a lunchbox suitable for carrying the lighthouse keepers lunch.

They will consider the materials required and explain their choices.
