Well done to year 2 for all passing their training to become super agents. 😎

They all completed 4 tasks both enthusiastically and with resilience. We are very proud of you all!

SATs graduation

Super Agent Training (SATs)


Year 2 came back after the Easter holidays to a letter from Super Agent Headquarters!


They will be given 4 challenges to complete as Super Agents. They will complete 2 maths and 2 reading quizzes. Each child has their own Super Agent badge to wear. 


2C have also been reading Detective Dog which is about a thief who steals books from a school and the class dog saves the day!

All creatures great and small

Our new topic is all about Africa and animals. We will be reading lots of fiction books about animals. Find out more about our learning by looking at our learning leaflet.

World book day activities

Well done 2C for completing the NSPCC track challenge!

We danced, skipped, jumped, hopped, sprinted, jogged, tiptoed, walked, side stepped, and we even ran with a partner.


Phew - what a busy day!


Thank you for all your donations

Who's that guy?

This half term started with a bang with bonfire night which has started our topic well. We are learning all about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot.  

The children have told us all about the fireworks  that they saw and have described them well using adjectives and similes.

In PE we have been learning a dance to the Monster Mash song.


The Monster Machine

In year 2 we had a special delivery with some strange things inside. We tried to guess what it could be...


There were pipes, tubes, photo frames, jars, wire, screws and springs. Do you know what it could be?

We found out that it was an inventor that had sent it to us and he builds Monster Machines.

Important information about 2C

Home learning

All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read and complete some homework and it is recorded in their log.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold


Last year our class were fantastic and they all received a certificate EVERY TERM! We are aiming for this again in Year 2. Please support us in doing this.


Children are also rewarded within the classroom for reading 50 times.


50 merits = Purple




The children will receive new spellings each week and will be tested the following Monday. 

 Practising their spellings can be written in their home learning diary to gain even more merits. If your child has lost their spellings, please don't hesitate to ask for a spare copy.



We have Indoor PE on a Thursday afternoon and Outdoor PE on a Friday afternoon.

Please ensure that your child has correct PE kit on those days and that it is named.
