Foxes (Year 2 W)


Home Learning 17th May 2019 - Reading - Mammals

A Mammals reading home learning sheet will be coming home today (Friday) as home learning and is attached below as a file. 

As it is chunkier than usual home learning, I am happy for this to replace any reading of home readers over the weekend.

Home Learning 3rd May 2019 - Maths Reasoning

A Maths Reasoning practice paper will be coming home today as home learning and is attached below as a file. This is really good practice for all Foxes so I would urge them to have a go. 

As it is chunkier than usual home learning, I am happy for this to come back into school completed by Thursday 9th May.

Mr R.



Welcome back, Foxes!

I hope you all had an amazing Easter break and are rested and ready to learn for the Summer! This half-term our topic is Toys. We will be researching toys throughout history and exploring the changes that have occurred over time. In ICT, we will be coding and making our own computer games as well as writing instructions to accompany them. Our project will be to design and produce our own toy puppet to play with and help story-tell, which links to our exciting new text for English: Traction Man! Our writing will have lots of variation, with fictional stories of toys going on adventures alongside our game instructions and recounts. In Maths, our focus will be on learning time and revising our problem solving skills. In RE we will explore the question: ‘Can stories change you?’.

On this page you will find:

   - The home learning grid for Summer 1 half-term

   - New spellings ready for the first week

   - Topic grid for ‘Toys’

Berkshire Oracy Project - Foxes Class

Year 2 Foxes Class are lucky to have been invited to take part in a new, exciting pan-Berkshire Oracy project with the aim of developing Speaking & Listening skills in our learning. Over the past half-term, we have been busy applying this to our Minibeast learning in Science. We researched Amphibians, finding out about their habitats, diets and lifecycles whilst also practicing our speaking and listening skills. This resulted in us writing a Podcast script about Frogs and recording these in pairs using the iPads, demonstrating our new knowledge of what makes a good Podcast. These have been published on Seesaw for the whole community to listen and enjoy.

To access your child's Podcast on Seesaw, follow these steps:

Thank you for your support in sharing in our children’s success.
