Welcome to our page!
Hello and welcome to Year 2 Foxes!
It seems like only yesterday we were starting our first day of the academic year as Year 2 Foxes, and yet we are now in our final term already!
This term is a busy but exciting one, with lots of learning, some special jobs to complete, a school trip, Sports Days and a chance to meet our new teacher ahead of Year 3.
The weeks are going to whizz by!
If you have any questions or something is worrying you, please come to see our teacher, Mrs Fowler.
Scroll down for information about the week ahead plus some photos of our work and adventures in Year 2.
~~ Summer Term ~~
What is coming up for Team Foxes this week?
Week commencing Monday 30th April, 2018...
No school on Friday 4th May! - School will be closed to children for an Inset Day.
Next Monday is also a bank holiday so enjoy your 4 day weekend, Foxes! We will see you on Tuesday 8th May.
In Maths we are going to be consolidating our learning on arrays and using these to help us with multiplication. Ask us some of our 2, 5 and 10 times tables at home and watch how we work them out! We might need some paper and a pencil or some beads to help us.
In Literacy we are continuing with our 'Mermaids' text! We will be creating posters, illustrating the text, planning our own piece of writing and even making some mermaid magic! Take a look at our story map below and see how well we can recite the text at home.
We will also be continuing with our new Topic all about the seaside! This week we are learning about a very famous lady called Grace Darling. Click the link below to watch a video of her story.
In P.E we are playing team games and continuing to develop our coordination, agility and core physical skills.
We will also be doing daily handwriting practice, guided reading, assemblies and reading our new class book 'The World's Worst Children' by David Walliams!
~~ Spring Term ~~
Take a look at the sports relief website for videos of some of the children across the world that Sports Relief helps:
We learnt a new dance from the Jump with Jill rock'n'roll nutrition show. Take a look and watch how good we are at singing and dancing along!
As part of our dinosaur topic we have been learning about a very famous fossil hunter called Mary Anning.

World Book Day 2018
Look how fantastic we all looked in our costumes! We had everything from Harry Potter to Cinderella to a Ghostbuster!
We have had more phenomenal homework this term!
Look at these two videos from our Foxes, Evie and Isabelle!
Make sure you have your sound turned on...
~~ Autumn Term ~~
During 'Good to be Me' Week in the Autumn Term, we talked about self-esteem and what we are proud of.
This is us standing in our 'Proud Poses'! Some of our poses are funny, some are strong and some are silly, but they are all happy and proud! We love being 'us'.
Look at the photos of our Extreme Reading Challenge that was held in the Autumn Term!
A winner was picked from each house (Chambers, De Soisson and Howard) and one of them was our very own fox, Summer!
The photo of her reading at the dentist really impressed the judges - talk about dedication to her reading!!
Look at this AMAZING homework by our fantastic Fox, Isabelle, from the Autumn Term.
It is all about her favourite animal from Africa.
Make sure your sound is turned on!
That's not the only piece of wonderful Africa homework we had in Year 2 Foxes throughout the Autumn Term.
We had tall giraffes, collaged flags, papier mache leopards, a modelling clay elephant and even a rhino made from an old bottle!
Plus some wonderful drawings, paintings and fact files.
Look at the photos below to take a peek at some of our creations.
