We hope you enjoy completing the ‘Pirate’ themed tasks this week. It would be great to see how you are getting on by commenting/adding pictures of your work to ourschoolSeesaw app!The activities can mostly be completed in your exercise book or on paper.
Keep up the brilliant work, we are very proud of you all!

Word of the Week!
We know how much you love to discover and use new words, so we have decided to carry on with our ‘Word of the Week’ online. Even though we aren’t using our dojo rewards at the minute, still try to find out the meaning of the words and use them in any writing you do, and when you are talking if you can. Perhaps you could upload an example to your class blog on See-Saw – we would love to see it!
Take care – we are missing you all very much!

Welcome to 2E – Here’s a bit about us
Reading and Homework
In Year Two, reading books are changed on a Monday and a Friday. We encourage reading to take place at home as often as possible. Spellings are given out each Monday and should be returned by Friday, where children will have a spelling test. Each half term, children will receive a topic overview which consists of a range of activities, covering different subjects and a Maths booklet. These should be returned by the end of each half term.
PE kits are brought into school at the beginning of each half term and will be returned home at the end of the half term.
Our class worship takes place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Our sessions consist of Bible stories, heart prayer, meditation, Picture News and calendar celebrations.
Take a look around our room…
Children enjoy visiting our Prayer Space. This is an area where children can reflect, express their feelings, write their own prayers and feel calm.
Maths and Reading Area
Our Maths area is where we practise our number of the week and our reading area is where we enjoy reading our books and challenge ourselves with adjective and noun hunts.
Silly Shape Hunt!
We looked all around school for the mischievous shapes and found them in some very strange places. We found circles and triangles, cylinders and cuboids!
Miss Eagle asked us the question, ‘How do polar bears keep warm?’ so we set to the task of finding out! Some of our answers were very impressive-skin, fur, blood and heart!
Firstly, we dipped our hands into icy water and realised it was just too cold for us. We wondered just how polar bears swim in such cold water! Miss Eagle then covered our hands in a special fat and we tried dipping our hands in the water once more-we couldn’t feel any cold! We then realised that polar bears must be covered in this special fat too. We learned that this special fat is called blubber. We all enjoyed this science experiment very much.
