NSPCC Assembly - January 2023
This morning the children attended a “speak out stay safe” assembly. This is run by the NSPCC and teaches children how they all have the right to speak out and stay safe. We made lists of our trusted adults who we can speak to if we feel upset and discussed things that aren’t ok such as hitting, bullying etc.

Family trees! - November 2022
We took some time talking about the term “tree” and how families branch off into cousins, siblings, parents etc. Thank you SO much to the children who brought some examples of their own family trees in as this was an excellent teaching tool! It was wonderful discuss.
The children then built up The Royal Family tree and explored the term “line of succession”. We talked about who the current monarch is and who would take over from him, then who next and who next etc.

Year 2 each received a positive affirmation card as they arrived in class. They also completed a 'Hello Yellow' treasure hunt-searching for all things yellow. They were also reminded by the wellbeing ambassadors of their 3 challenges.
1. to say something kind to a teacher
2. to wave or smile at a friend
3. tell a joke during a special World Mental Health Day assembly.
Maths - Flexible Partitioning! - October 2022
One of the biggest concepts we learn in year 2 is how to partition a number. We’ve been working like champions all week long on splitting numbers into tens and ones and we’ve smashed that target!
The next (and trickiest) step is to then understand that we can flexibly partition a two digit number.
So 48 can be 40 + 8, but it can also be 30 + 18, 20 + 28 and so on.
The way we’ve tackled this today is by becoming the tens and ones ourselves!
The children loved it and really understood that by physically moving as a ten themselves, they could flexibly partition any number in lots of different ways!

Maths: 3D Shapes - September 2022
Today we revisited our 3D shapes. I hid the shape in a bag and I needed helpers to describe what they could feel to the group. We talked about the names and properties of a sphere, cube, cylinder and cone. Afterwards, we played 4 corners with the shapes and had so much fun!
