Class 2


In English, Class 2 have been planning their own invent for their independent write. They have chosen four locations for their river to travel and have gathered a range of prepositions, adjectives and verbs to create an imaginary journey.

In maths, we have been developing our reasoning skill by using column addition to solve worded problems.

In science, we have been exploring the different poles of a magnet. The children predicted whether they would repel or attract and conducted experiments in pairs to investigate their hypothesis. The children also created their own compasses using water, plastic lids and a bar magnet.


In English, we are continuing to practice our shared write. Class 2 have generated wonderful expanded noun phrases and similes to describe the movement and journey of a river. The have also used rich language to describe locations along the rivers journey.

In maths, we have been consolidating our mental arithmetic skills when adding two numbers crossing 10. The children are applying this skill to adding 3-digit numbers mentally.

In science, we explored the strengths of different magnets and recorded the amount of paper clips each magnet could hold.


In English, we have started our new core text ‘A river’ by Marc Martin. This is a beautiful book with amazing illustrations and rich language. The children have enjoyed exploring the imaginary journey of the river. Class 2 are excited to generate ideas for their own imagery journey.

In maths, we are developing our additive reasoning through column addition. Year 3 have been adding 3-digit numbers and year 4 have been adding 4-digit numbers.

In science, we explored how different materials cause different amounts of friction. In groups, children tested toy cars over different materials and measured the amount of friction using spring balance force metres.


In English, the children have moved to the invent sequence of their writing. This means they are independently writing their own animal stories and been working hard to included a range of conjunctions, similes and speech.

In maths, we have been consolidating our understanding of place value. Class 2 have been rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We have also been estimating calculations and applying this understanding to solve a range of worded problems.
