Miss Reeve's Book Recommendation of the Week! 

The story of a boy who fell into a book . . . with a guest appearance from the Little Bad Wolf. From Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Now if you were going to fall into a book, a book of fairy tales would probably not be your first choice. Because in every story there is always a wicked this, an evil that or a hungry somebody. It could only happen to Herb, child star of that thrilling tale, Beware of the Storybook Wolves.

Autumn 2 - Gifts and Presents 
Year 2 have been learning about Hinduism and we have learnt that Diwali is a festival of lights which is celebrated by Hindus. In celebration of Diwali, we have made Rangoli Window Decorations! 
Entry Point Day 
As part of our topic of Gifts and Presents, for our entry point day we designed and made a Bag Tag for another member of the class. It was so lovely to see all of Y2 being so kind and considerate towards each other. Each pair had some time to find out the likes and dislikes of their partner, before designing and making their Bag Tag. 
Year 2 learnt that even though it was lovely to receive a gift, it was equally as lovely to give a gift!
ICT Suite
Y2 had a very exciting time in the ICT Suite! We were learning how to make a game in which they make bubbles disappear by clicking on them as they float up the screen. They learnt that objects can be programmed to perform actions at the start or when they are clicked on.

Also, Y2 learnt that start events and click events can be used together, and they used these events to create an animated ‘magic castle’ scene.
Autumn 1 - Cornish Myths and Legends! 
Welcome back Year 2!
I hope that you've had a lovely summer holiday! We've got a very exciting topic to start the year ... we are going to be learning all about Cornish Myths and Legends! 

Have you heard about the Giants of St Michael's Mount? Do you know the tale of the Mermaid of Zennor? Have you been told the legend of the Mousehole Cat? We are going to be learning about about these famous  Cornish legends plus much much more! 
In Year 2, we have been learning all about Harvest Festivals. We have learnt that different countries celebrate Harvest Festivals in different ways.  Watch the video below to see our beautiful apple artwork and to listen to us explain what we have learnt about Harvest Festivals. 
The Mousehole Cat 
In Art, we have created used tissue paper to create our own version of the Mousehole Cat! 
Literacy Focus
In literacy, we are going to be writing and reinventing traditional myths and legends of Cornwall as well as writing some exciting acrostic poetry about some of the famous characters in these stories! 
Maths Focus
In maths, we are going to learning to count, read and write numbers up to 100. We are going to learn to count in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s so remember to practise these at home! After our place value topic, we will be starting addition and subtraction where we will be focusing on number bonds and working towards adding/subtracting two digit numbers (crossing 10).
