With only three days of learning left before the holidays, the children are remaining as focused as ever in order to achieve those half term goals. Maths lessons have been filled with sequences and counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children have been busy solving problems by finding missing numbers and have been giving some great explanations and reasons as to why they have given certain answers - the use of mathematical vocabulary has been great.
Another week has flown by with Year 2 working as hard as ever to grow those brains and achieve those ever changing targets they are setting themselves. We began reading our first focus story ‘Meerkat Mail’ this week, with the children focusing on the main character Sunny. As a class, we learned all about adjectives and the adjectives we could use to describe our new favourite Meerkat. In the coming weeks, we will develop these adjectives to create our own postcards from Sunny’s travels and hopefully, some incredibly entertaining meerkat poems - watch this space!
My goodness! We have reached yet the end of another busy week here in Year 2 and it has gone so quickly, I don’t think some of the children can quite believe it’s the weekend … AGAIN! Each lesson has been brimmed with new and exciting learning for the children to throw themselves into and I’m still amazed by just how much enthusiasm the children show each day.

To continue the leadership theme that Year 6 have started, on Friday, they celebrated mass with other Year 6 children from our deanery schools. This was a very special time when all the children were asked to consider the responsibility of being a disciple of Christ. Fr Peter reminded them that just as Christ is the light of the world, they too are called to be lights for others.
