At Henley Green, we read every day. Reading records should be signed by an adult and brought with the reading book into school every day.



Spellings and maths revision will be given out on a Friday and glued into reading records. These will be tested the following Friday and the results entered onto the slip in the reading record.



P.E. Wednesday afternoon 

A kit of white, green or black t-shirt and shorts, (no logos, pictures or writing please). A pair of pumps or trainers are required for outdoor P.E. All kit, including footwear, should be named and placed in a named bag to avoid losing items.

Fireworks by James Reeves

Year 2 have been learning to read the poem: Fireworks by James Reeves. We used expression in our voices and added lots of actions to make our performance exciting. The children performed their poems to the rest of the class!

We wrote our own poems, in Big Write, using lots of interesting adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs.

Features of a Letter.

We've been identifying features of a letter today! As a class, we read the story 'Dear Teacher', which is about a little boy who makes wonderful excuses so he does not have to go to school or do his homework. Year 2 created their own excuses and put them into a letter. They were very imaginative! 

Forest Schools

Every Friday afternoon, Year 2 go out into the Forest School area. They are set a range of activities using the natural resources to create an awareness of habitats and the environment. We have created nests for birds and hedgehogs, wax rubbings on tree bark and hugged trees! 


Fireman Visit

Fireman Steve came to Year 2 to talk to us about The Great Fire of London. He showed us pictures of fire engines from the past and then, present. The children had to guess the similar feature of each engine. Can you remember what it was?

Fireman Steve tried on all of his protective clothing and explained to us, each job that it did. We got to hear VERY loud sirens! 

Maths Workshop for Parents

Today, the Y2 parents came into the classroom to see what our Maths lessons were like! All tables were adding two digit numbers together using diennes, numicon and jottings. They learnt the variety of methods and resources we use to help us. smiley

Making Worry Dolls

The children read a story by Anthony Browne about a child having worries. The little boy created worry dolls to explain all his worries too. We created them too, using dolly pegs, pipe cleaners, felt tips and wool. It was lots of fun!



Our Topic for Spring Term 2020 is "We are United", which will initially concentrate on the World as a whole - seven continents and five oceans as well as compass positions.  Then we will focus on the four countries that make up the United Kingdom - England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  We will be investigating different foods and traditions that relate to these countries.  We will also be looking at the flags of these countries.
