2020-21 Year 2 Foxes

Welcome to Foxes class


Here you will find all of the termly homework and newsletters for Foxes class, as well as information about some of the exciting activities that we have been doing in school. Children will be given spelling and Maths homework on a weekly basis that’s will be uploaded into SeeSaw. We also ask parents to hear their children read  at least 4 times a week, as we see the best progress in those children who read regularly at home with an adult.


Many thanks for your support in helping your child improve.

Georgia’s wonderful learning  - October 2020


This week we have been learning about Rosa Parks and the day she decided to not to give up her seat on the bus. We have had lots of discussion about how Rosa would have felt and why she was expected to give up her seat. We have all created some great writing this week but Georgia stood out. Here is a picture of Georgia’s fabulous learning! Take a read! 😁😁😁😁😁

What’s the weather like today? - October 2020


This term we’ve been learning about seasonal changes and looking at how the weather changes from season to season. This week we created our own weather reports. First we role played them and then we wrote them in our Science books.

We ❤️ Editing Friday! - October 2020


Every Friday we look back over our learning for the week and try to improve our learning by using our purple polishing pens to make it a little bit better. 


We we also have a special tool that we use to help us spot the mistakes... it’s our editing glasses. They really help us to spot the mistakes. 😎🤓

R.E  - October 2020


In R.E this term we have been learning about how different religions celebrate different events. We have learnt about many different religions and events including how Jewish people celebrate Shabbat and how Christians celebrate a christening. Here are some pictures of us re-enacting a Christening. 

Adding using dienes - October 2020


We’ve been practicing using our dienes and a Place Value chart to help us add numbers. We made both numbers and put them together  on the place value chart. 😁 Then we worked out how much we had in total. 

Forest schools - September 2020


Here are a few pictures of us enjoying our time in forest school today. 

Ordering in Maths - September 2020


Today in Maths we’ve been learning how to order and compare numbers. First we looked at the first digit (the tens), and then if they were the same as another number we must use the second digit (the ones) to help. 


When we were secure at the skill of ordering our numbers we moved onto using the skill by playing a game of ‘Top Trumps’. It was so much fun. 😁😁😁😁😁

What are maps used for? - September 2020


To begin our learning in Geography we looked at a range of different maps. We were looking at the things each of them had the same and the things that were different about them all. All of them had a key to help us know where things were. We enjoyed our lesson and we are eager to find out what we’re learning next. 😁😁😁😁

Marking faces - September 2020


In the first week of term, we have been doing lots of fun activities to get to know each other. Here are some pictures of the nature faces we made. Do they look like us? 😁
