Well Done to all the children in Owls

Your Autumn hat designs were all fantastic.  We all enjoyed the hat parade around the classroom.






























Party Day was so much fun – we had a great time. We made a birthday badge, birthday cards, party bags and all liked having our photo taken in our birthday photo frame.


Isambard Kingdom Brunel
During our Marvelous Mistakes week we have been learning all about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and what a fantastic engineer he was. Here is the video we watched in class for you to enjoy at home.


Our Classroom

Hi Owls
Here is a picture of our lovely year two classroom. Hope you enjoyed your first week back in school. Our next topic is Marvellous Mistakes.
Miss Muchmore



Listen to a message from your class teacher.

Welcome to all the Owls and your families

I hope you have had a wonderful summer break and you are looking forward to returning to school for some fun and learning.  I’m sure you will all be excited to see your friends again.
School may seem a bit different to start but you will soon settle in and get used to the new ways of working. The classroom is set out a bit differently to usual and your name card is on a table to show you where to sit.
Our first topic will be learning all about Owls. Owls are considered to be wise birds, Can you find out what ‘wise’ means and see if you can find out some facts about owls to share with the class.
I hope you enjoy the last few days of the summer break and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
Take care
Miss Muchmore

Phonics play – https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/

This is a site dedicated to phonics. A lot of parents already know what phonics phase their child is on, however if you do not you can select each phase and read them through with your children. You will be able to easily identify where they are working at and try and push them onto the next stage. Please make sure you consolidate their learning first before moving onto the next phase.

Phonics is just one of the many components to help children with their reading and writing. Keep on reading as much as you can with the children as this makes a huge difference.

Children can use the site at home without their parents needing to subscribe. To access the resources all you need to do is log on using the following details.
