Welcome Orca Class - what a busy start to Year 2 we have had. 


This term we discovered that we are going back in time and learning all about Castles. We have been amazed to learn that the very first castles were wooden and did not look like anything we recognise as a castle. We will be finding out all about the different features of castles and working out how they changed over time. 


Our reading books have been going home based on our recent phonics assessments. Please read and return these daily. Home/school contact books are being kept in school for the moment but we are recording your books in these.   

We will be having our weekly spelling tests on a Friday.  


We will also be having our maths challenges on a Friday - we will be starting with our number bonds before moving onto our times tables. We need to be able to answer these quickly - just 3 minutes to answer! 


Our PE is on a Thursday, this term we will be focusing on multi-skills and learning how to move with control and co-ordination in a range of ways. 


We have been very busy completing some great learning so far, our favourite has been reading books to find out about the castles. Did you know that the moats are very smelly because the people in the castles used to put their toilet waste in them!
