Year 2 – Miss Chamberlain

Welcome to 2C!


Your teacher is Miss Chamberlain.  I have so many exciting things planned for this year!


Please remember to bring your book bag, reading book and reading record every day. 


Please could you bring a white t shirt, pumps and black shorts to school for P.E.  Please leave it in school and take it home each half term to be washed. This ensures children always have their kit.

Miss Chamberlain's Recount. 


First we lined up in the corridor still wearing our coats from playtime. Miss Chamberlain told us the rules and we agreed they were good rules, because we want to stay safe like Safe Spike.


Next we walked outside. When we saw the school gate, we turned right.


Then we were on a long, concrete grey road. We walked along it and we could hear rushing, racing cars. 


When we reached the park gates we turned right. I could see tall, lime green trees and two cheeky magpies hopping around. I wonder what they were looking for?


When we reached the end of the park we turned right at a wooden totem with terrifying wooden faces! After that we saw the play area, where we played for 5 minutes. I went on the roundabout and the swings. It was exhilarating and exciting!


Then when we left the play area we turned right when suddenly we saw a beautiful, golden labrador dog. We turned left at the end of the park and started walking back.


When we got to the end of the park we turned left, and we could see the milk man delivering milk to our school. When we got back to school we turned left and we were glad to get inside out of the freezing cold!

How to use a number line to find the difference. Can you practise this at home?

Our walk around the school area; we're going to write a recount!

Weekend Challenge!


We have been writing poems all week.


Can you write me a poem at home? It could be about anything at all! 


Try to use great adjectives and a repeated refrain.


Here are some ideas for poem titles;

- Mummy time

- Daddy time

- School time

- Play time

- Bed time

- Swimming time

- Birthday time



Our Golden Rules!


We have been discussing what our school Golden Rules mean. We have learned them with some actions. Can you practise them at home?


Here they are!


Be gentle, don’t hurt others.

Be kind and helpful, don’t hurt others’ feelings.

Be honest, don’t cover up the truth.

Work hard, don’t waste time.

Look after property, don’t damage things.

Listen to others, don’t interrupt.

Snow... Inside and out! Ready for winter poetry writing!

Bring me in some doubling, halving, subtracting and adding questions. If you're feeling REALLY clever... Bring me some multiplying and dividing questions!

We are really enjoying our ukulele lessons every Thursday. Don't forget to bring your ukulele in from home each week.

We have learnt about the Italian artist Arcimboldo. In groups we made pictures in his style using fruit and vegetables.
