Welcome to Year 2/3

Learning is fun!

What a fantastic week!

This week we have been dong lots of RE. In RE we have been writing about one of Jesus’ miracles. We have written about Jairus and his daughter and also written a prayer thanking God for our homes and families. Also we have read lots of the BFG book where we pretended to be Sophie and how she felt seeing the BFG for the first time.

Mrs Coles has worked hard to give us a new book corner and we have also designed our new prayer corner.

National Poetry Day

Each week a chosen couple of children will be working with their Y5/6 buddy to write the blog for you. We hope you enjoy reading it!


This week was National Poetry Day where we had a great day working with the Y5/6 class. We each had a buddy and they worked with us to write different types of poems, which included a cinquain and a 5W poem all about the seasonal change of Autumn.

We did a big write at the end of the week about the BFG including a water colour picture about Sophie’s room. Mrs Coles was very impressed with our work!

Welcome to Year 2/3

We are very sorry for the lateness of writing the Blog – there have been a few technical issues!

We would like to welcome you all to Year 2/3 and we are looking forward to a fantastic year. If you have any questions or concerns we are always here to help and support in anyway we can.

If any parents or grandparents are available to read with our children, please come and see one of us as we would be very grateful.

Mrs Coles and Miss Mycroft

Y2 park trip

Here are the photos from our lovely trip to the park on Tuesday.

We had great weather and had a fun afternoon together to celebrate the hard work we had all done.

Thank you so much to the children for their impeccable behaviour and to all of the adults who volunteered to help. It was a fabulous afternoon of fun.

The photos speak for themselves so no comments from me…..

Thank you to all of year 2 – a few people in the park commented on the wonderful behaviour of the children. You made us very proud.

Dear Parents,

We are sending home the children’s reports this evening. We have only included one copy in the envelope this time and the other is being kept in school. Could you please sign the parent comment sheet and add comments if you wish and return that to school.

Many thanks

Art Exhibition

Dear Parents,

The whole school art exhibition is on Friday after school in the individual classes. We hope as many of you will be able to join us to celebrate our fantastic work from this term. The children have worked really hard and have been inspired by their visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and our big question ‘Should art reflect the world around us?’

It’s prompted lots of discussion about what art is and where we see it – some very deep answers to this!

We are looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

Dear Parents,

We need your cardboard boxes (some large if you have them) and tin foil containers/trays etc for our ‘Big Build’ as part of the art work this half term.

Please let us now what you have or send to school next week.

Many thanks

Science – good vibrations!

We have begun our topic on Sound and it began with a lot of investigation and exploration.

We needed to understand how sound was made and what the differences were with the vibrations and the types of sound.

So much to investigate with rulers, elastic bands, drums and rice, chime bars as well as tuning forks and water! The children were able to talk about their observations and draw conclusions from their exploring.

Sandwich instructions

Part of our literacy this half term has been to write instructions. We made sandwiches as part of this process to develop our understanding of the exact language needed and also encourage a variety of imperative verbs.

Lunch anyone?
