Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Ruby!


We are a fantastic Class of Year 2 children with two teachers called Mrs deRijk and Mrs Tolley.

We have had an exciting start so far this year, with many fun and interesting activities linked to our themes of ‘Food Glorious Food’ and ‘Keeping Healthy’ However, we’ve got plenty of activities still ahead of us and we will try to post some of these as the weeks roll by.


We have Indoor PE on a Thursday afternoon and Outdoor PE on a Friday afternoon. We should make sure we have our PE kit with us AND that it is labelled!


We are encouraged to change our books by ourselves whenever we need to. We are allowed to borrow 2 books from the library; we go and have a look on most Mondays.


We have Phonics homework and spellings every Thursday and this is due in on the following Tuesday. We also have ‘Exploring Our World’ homework ('three-in-a-row') each half term where we can choose from a selection of tasks.


Bug Club is now live!

Art Day - Wednesday 10th October

We have been learning how to mix primary colours to make secondary colours.  We found out how to make tints and tones, by adding white or black. 

We put all of these colours together to make a colour wheel.  

Finally we blended the colours to paint autumn leaves.

Autumn term 2018 - What do we need to stay healthy?

We are beginning our work in Year 2 by looking at how we can keep ourselves healthy. On our Inspiration Day we tasted lots of different fruit and vegetables, finding out about where they came from and how they are grown.

Power Maths 

This term we have introduced an exciting new way of teaching Mathematics called Power Maths.  It is a whole class mastery approach that challenges children to use their reasoning skills to problem solve. We are enjoying using lots of equipment to support our learning and enrich our understanding. 

We used lots of equipment to explore place value.
