Week Beginning 5th March 2018

What a cold and snowy start to the new half term. Last week Mr. Martin Hall, an Associate Teacher from Liverpool Hope University, joined us. He will be working with us in Y2 until Easter. Mr. Hall is a former pupil of Bunbury School, having been taught by me when he was in Reception.

In English we are continuing with our text ‘Goldilocks and The One Bear.” This week we are writing diary accounts and continuing with descriptions of Bear’s experience in the city.

As Mathematicians we are focusing on division, dividing by 2, 5, and 10 using division and multiplication facts. At Y2 pupils are expected to

  • recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (.), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
  • show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental

Don’t forget this resource too to help with learning number facts/timetables etc.

As Scientists we will investigate how humans and other animals are born, grow and change, and what we need to survive and be health.

Our handwriting focus is on the r group of letters – r n m h b k p

In phonics/spelling the focus is on the use of the possessive apostrophe and the sound /ɒ/ spelt ‘a’ o after ‘w’ and ‘q’. We are also continuing to reinforce Long Vowel words, learning to use a GPC and spelling tricky words.


In RE our unit of work continues to be the Christian Concept: Forgiveness, prayer and sin. The key question is How does prayer help Christians start again?

Reading Books
The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have completed a book at home with you.

Miss Porter and I each half term will continue to assess all the children’s reading again using our benchmarking system. Please bear with us as it does take time but is a thorough assessment of the level the children are reading at.

Our PE days are Monday am (Ms Charlesworth) and Wednesday am (Sports’ Coaches)
