Year 2 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 22nd April.


Pioneer’s Day

On Tuesday 13th June, a long way off we know, parents will be invited into school on the afternoon to attend the children’s Waxwork Museum.

Now, the children should begin to research a famous explorer or pioneer that they would like to be on the day.

Each child should dress up as their explorer/pioneer and should prepare 5 questions for the parents to ask them. The children must learn some facts about their explorer so that they can answer these questions.

Children’s jackets/jumpers

While it is hotting up outside, the children often feel a little colder inside under the AC units. It is not always possible to turn the AC off, when many of the children are still warm, so children should continue to bring their over wear in case they are cold in class.


Swimming lessons have now commenced for some classes.  Please remember that swimming is part of the curriculum and it is expected that all children will swim. A doctor’s note must be provided if your child is unable to join their session. They MUST wear a swim cap in the pool and must be able to dress and undress themselves quickly to be ready for their slot.


Clubs are now up and running, children are to be collected from the playground promptly


After a week of Pinman, we have realised that he is a gently giant, not the nasty character we assumed him to be. This week we will write the story of Pinman. We will write the story over 3 days ensuring that our beginning, middle and ending are filled with detail.

Which new vocabulary can you use in your story this week? Can you tell the story to someone at home? Say aloud each sentence then try to make it even better.


This week’s maths lessons will be completely based on problem solving. The children must know how to add, subtract, divide and multiply but more importantly they must know how to solve problems using these skills.

When the children read a word problem, they must look for clues to work out which of the 4 operations (+ – x ÷ ) to use. The method they use is the one they feel most confident with.

Note that after Y2 children are not supposed to rely on the number square in order to add/subtract tens and ones.


Our sewing journey continues for the next few weeks. The children have watched an animated version of the story ‘The Journey’ and discussed the adventures that the girl in the story drew. Each class has now created their own story setting; under the sea, the forest, space, the seaside etc and are beginning to create a sewing project related to this. Watch out for the finished product in a few weeks.

Why not practise at home using the following links to help:

Technique 1 – Blanket stitch or overstitch (simpler but not as pretty)

Technique 2 – Running stitch
