Our final week in Year 2 has been busy and lots of fun. We've enjoyed time at the beach digging holes and building castles. We've all tried hard to improve our skipping skills before going up to Year 3 and so many of us have now mastered this skill. We've also completed our history topic about the seaside with some fantastic Punch and Judy shows.
May I take this opportunity to thank you all for our very generous gifts. I have enjoyed teaching your children this year and being part of their learning journey. I know they are ready for Year 3, to continue to use their inquisitive minds and further develop their love of learning new things.
Have a wonderful summer and see you all next year in Year 3.
We had a wonderful morning sharing our stories with Year 5 and Seahorses, they all enjoyed hearing our stories.

This week we got off to a flying start in out Maths and English lessons by being very active in them all. We shared a walk and talk with each other, discussing what we had done during the half term break. We then reminded ourselves about the alphabet and the order the letters come in, this helped set us up for the week and all our dictionary work we are doing. Then in Maths we looked at number patterns and how to spot the pattern. Mrs Crabb drew some big number patterns on the playground to help us understand the jumps between numbers.
We will be going to the beach on Tuesday 14th March, if anyone would like to help and has a DBS check then please let Mrs Crabb know.
