Autumn Term 

Spring Term 

In Maple Class, we have a growth mindset, see how we have started to think about thinking...

Next week we are testing the children again on these words below.  Please support them by practising some at home from the list we gave you on parents evening.  Spelling really can make the difference between meeting the standard or not at the end of Year 2.

These are the spellings that children in Year 2 need to know before they reach KS2. Please practise reading and spelling them at home. Many thanks.

Tastes of Mexico!  We have been tasting different Mexican dips in preparation for our party.

Where are all the continents?

Can you name and locate the seven continents of the world?

Solving Problems.

We have been working really hard in maths, using talk partners, to improve our mathematical reasoning.  Here we are, deciding if these maths statements about multiplication and division are true or false.


Maple class are fabulous Firefighters!  A huge thank you to the staff at Morley Fire Station who gave us a full tour of their station.  We were able to look at the fire engine, control room and even the kitchen and gym!  They also found a new recruit...can you guess who it is?

The team at Morley Fire Station wanted us to remind you all to check your smoke detectors each week.  If yours are not working or you require some, please contact the station and they will give you some for free!

Fabulous news!  We have met our class target and are planning to celebrate with a 'Teddy Day' on Monday 22nd May.  This is for our class only and does not include siblings in other classes.  Please could you allow your child to bring a teddy to school on this day, which is clearly labelled.  



They're back!

We are hoping it will be third time lucky for Maple Class.

Miss Dolby found some tadpoles at her allotment and has brought them in for us to observe.  We have been feeding them with pond weed and fish food, and we are hoping that this time they will develop in to frogs...fingers crossed!Little visitors


Summer Term

It's hard to believe that we are over half way through this half term already! 

The weeks are flying by and the children are all working so hard. 

As you are aware, Year 2 are doing their SAT tests during May.  We have made arrangements for when these will be done but it is a flexible timetable as we do not have to do things on a set day.  For that reason, we do not send out timetables etc, but from now until the holidays we will be administering them.

Can you please make sure that children are at school on time, and have a water bottle to keep them refreshed.

Many thanks.


The Easter Bunny has Been!

ntseedhouse on: Maple News

Happy Easter everybody!

I can't believe how much learning has happened this half term.  Each and every child in class has worked their socks off and made such good progress.  The spelling tests this week show how much they have improved and the very tricky maths tests required a lot of mental muscles!  But they did really well.

Over the holidays, please have fun and relax, but the main focus is to encourage and promote reading.  Please see the homework reading challenge sheet for more details.

But most of all, enjoy the holidays and the chocolate!


Nature experts

Today, we had a visit from the RSPB.  Catherine told us all about animal habitats and took us on a microhabitat hunt to see how suitable our school grounds are for encouraging wildlife.  Although I think she was surprised to see us all in our funny clothes! 


Lending a Hand

We love getting out and about!  We were so excited about the new Memorial Garden at school, that we decided to help the gardeners sow the grass seeds!

Autumn Term Big Draw

We had a great time on our local walk this half term, it inspired our artwork for The Big Draw which will be exhibited in November.

Making Poppies

 We talked about Remembrance Sunday and linked this in with our work on instructions.  The children read instructions to make their own poppy.  The best thing was the way in which the children cooperated and helped each other.
