Welcome to 2H's Class page

Thank you to all the parents who have returned the reply slips to let us know if they can attend any of the meetings on Monday 13th February. Please let me know if you can't attend and would like any of the information from the meeting. Thankyou.
Famous People of the Past
The children have made a great start since returning in January and have made a fantastic start on our new IPC Topic Famous People of the Past. The children will be finding out about Rulers, Artists, Explorers, Inventors and people who have made a significant contribution to our past. The children are really excited and are already doing lots of work at home about the people on our timeline. We started the topic by asking the children what they thought the word famous meant and the children then chose someone from the past and found out facts about them.
A reminder that the children will be having a spelling test this half term on the third column of the common exception words that can be found further down the page. Please continue to support your child with this at home it's really appreciated ! At the end of this half term we will be sending a list of the words home they do not know so you can continue to help your child with these spellings. The children continue to make good progress on the Accelerated Reading. Please can you ensure they have their book in every day because we do read every day. Sweat shirts and cardigans are building up in lost property again so please try to ensure that these are named. Thank you for your continued support.
Children In Need Day
Due to the snow on Friday we didn't get to do all our activities on Children in Need day. The children did enjoy the spotty maths activities in the morning though. We have since finished our stick puppets of Pudsey Bear which the children have taken home. The assembly has now been arranged for Tuesday 29th November at 2:30 p.m
Maths Makes Sense
We are doing measuring in MMS at the moment. We are looking at capacity, weight and length. The children really enjoyed finding out about capacity.
Year 2 have made a great start after the half term break and are working very hard. We are well underway with our Super Human Topic and the children are enjoying learning about how their bodies work. We are also learning about what makes a healthy diet, our senses and the importance of exercise. Take a look at some of the things we got up to in our opening ceremony.
The Magic Toy maker
Tony the Toy maker needed our help! So we transformed our classroom into a magical workshop and designed many beautiful toys that all children will love to play with.
Come and see what we got up to :
Happy Birthday Home Farm!
To celebrate Home Farm Primary Schools ten year anniversary, we had lots of fun with the number ten all day! Have a look at what we got up to when we celebrated this joyous occasion!
Common Exception Words List:
Please find below a copy of the common exception words list for year 2 pupils. During the last week of each half term the children will have a spelling quiz of 20 random words taken from the list to see how many they can remember and spell. Can they be a Superstar Speller?
