Welcome to Diamond!


Year 2 is a very exciting year for all of us in Class Diamond. We have lots to learn and many exciting activities to enjoy. We will try to post some of these as the year goes on. You are always welcome to pop in and have a chat with Mrs Dimmick, Mrs Shephard, Mrs Stewart or Mrs Wilkinson if you have any concerns or require information.

Just a few reminders

We have PE every Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure you have your named PE kit with you.

Phonics homework comes home on a Thursday and needs to be returned to school the following Tuesday. Spellings to learn are sent home with the phonics homework and we check the spellings with the children on Thursdays.

Books can be changed whenever the children need to.

Pirate bandanas!

Friday 18th May

We had lots of swashbuckling fun making tie-dye bandanas.  We learnt lots of different dyeing techniques like folding, crumpling and twisting.  We used three different coloured dyes and we were so excited to see the finished results!

This term we will be embarking on a swashbuckling learning adventure linked mostly to the exciting topic of pirates!


Our English work will be based on a number of different texts including: Narrative - The Pirate Next Door; Report - The Great White Shark; Narrative Fantasy Story - The Sandcastle; Newspaper Report - Pirates!

We will also be learning about the Oceans, Seas and Continents, tie-dying our own bandanas and making pirate shelters!

During Science Week, (21st-25th May) we will be investigating forces and Materials and we will be inviting you in to join in with some of these activities (letter to follow).
