Beech are the Best at spelling!

Every week we are going to choose up to 10 new words to learn to spell correctly.

During the week we are going to be finding different ways of remembering how to spell them.

Today we used “Look, Cover, Write then Check”.


Here are our new spellings to help you practise at home.


Ex and Retired Miners come to St.Augustines

February 22nd, 2017 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

On the 8th February Year 2 were very lucky to have a visit from ex and retired miners from the local area. Eric and Ann and their colleagues and friends came for a whole day with simply masses of stuff to hold, eat, try on and do. Beech and Birch class had the best day ever.


We made ‘snap’, we dressed up in protective clothing, we pretended to be pit ponies, and we learned about all the things coal is used for.


All the miners and their friends had a great day too not least because they were impressed by how polite and interested all the children were…and the cornflake tart at lunch impressed them too.


Dedicated Readers … 5 reads or more a week at home.

Its really important to read at home. You get to practise tricky words, practise your expression and get to show your parents how amazing you are.

And you sometimes get cool stickers from Mrs. Wheatley.

Noah’s Ark

December 3rd, 2016 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

In RE this week we are learning about a story which is important to both the Christian and Jewish faiths. Noah’s Ark is a good example of such a story.

This week we read Noah’s Ark in guided reading. Then in our Spelling and Grammar lessons we discovered how many common exception words we could find and identified lots of verbs and adjectives. In literacy we made cartoon strips of the Noah’s Ark story and next week we are going to write our own retelling of Noah’s Ark in our blue books.noah1noah2noah3


We are Times Tables Rockstars.

November 25th, 2016 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We have been loving doing our Times Tables Rock Star practise everyday.

First we learned our two times tables, then our fives and then our tens. Every day we see how many times tables we can do in three minutes. Some of us have managed to complete 60 times tables in that time. On one day a couple of people managed to complete 60 times tables in less than two minutes.

What an achievement that was!

A Rock Star is someone who gets 60 time tables correct in three minutes.

So far, our rockstars are:

Sienna, Elsie, Leo, Kiara, Lily, Alicja, Archie,  Abigail and Kaja.
