Y2 Slides

Welcome to Year 2

With many of our children now working from home, we will be using our blog to keep in touch, share learning opportunities and send out positivity. Also, keep updated with what the children in school are doing as we post photos.

Use the home learning grids to explore our exciting home learning ideas. You can access them by clicking the link in the 'Year 2 Curriculum Letters' section, lower down to the right of this page ->>

Keep an eye out for new grids with updated learning ideas.

Have fun, stay safe and enjoy new learning opportunities.

The Year 2 team

As well as using the grids, don't forget to keep up-to-date with the school on Twitter - @BoothVillePri - where Miss Payne is setting out events for the day, Miss Garner is reading a story and Mrs Gates is setting Maths challenges.

Hello everyone!

It has been a busy week here at school and in Year 2 because we have been having our class picnics!

We had great fun seeing everyone and talking about what we have been up to since we were last at school together. We played some games and did a lot of dancing to some music! We ate our lunch together and we got to meet our new Year 3 teachers. We had the chance to ask our Year 3 teachers about Year 3 and we talked about what we are worried about too. 

In the week, key worker children have been busy doing lots of small activities about sandcastles and we have also been talking about moving into Year 3. We did some writing about waves and we have made a HUGE sandcastle out of recycling - it looks amazing! 

There is a whole school TTRS battle at the moment, and Year 2 are not winning... log-in and have a play as every point counts! 

Don't forget you can still email us at school with what you have been up to at home too. We look forward to it!

Take care,

Miss Garner, Mrs Astill, Mrs Farbon and Mrs Morgan x x

This week has been very busy here at school. We have been having a go at many activities on the Learning Grid.

On Monday, we had lots of fun recreating the Hokusai wave. We only had a few colours to choose from, which meant we had to be very careful when we were mixing them together! On Tuesday, we enjoyed a trip to Forest School, where we explored different plants and looked for creatures in their natural habitat. Also, we explore patterns and made sand jars, as well as recreating the sandcastle from the story, ‘The Sandcastle’. 

On Wednesday, we had a competition to see who could be the most creative with shapes, to make a printed sandcastle. Mrs Crabb and Miss Garner chose Iulia as the winner. Well done, Iulia! On Thursday, we had a very busy day and we worked very hard, because we were treated to some slushes at the end of the day, even though the weather was rubbish! We did some writing about what we would change if we were king or queen for a day and we did lots of adding and subtracting using number squares to help us. We also learned about parts of a castle!

On Friday, we did some more Maths work, practising our adding and subtracting skills on a number line! We explored rhyme and came up with lots of words that would rhyme with seaside words, such as fish, sand and shell. Also, we did an experiment to see what happens when we put skittles in water… it was amazing!

We have enjoyed hearing about what you are all busy doing at home too, so please keep emailing us! It is also great to see everyone logging in to Times Tables Rock Stars to practise their times tables – well done everyone!

Take care,
Miss Garner, Mrs Astill, Mrs Farbon and Mrs Morgan x x
