Everyone in Year 2 now has their own Mathletics username and password and has learned how to use this fantastic website. We are all aiming to get a Bronzed certificate every week! Lots of children in 2LS and 2F received their certificates at the Special Mention assembly on Friday.
Last week 2F was 22nd in the Top UK Classes! Everyone is trying to get really impressive scores. Well done everyone, keep playing lots of Mathletics…. it really does help you become a marvellous mathematician!

Can you recognise us!
Last week we practised sketching our portraits. We learned about the proportions of the human face and how to draw guidelines to make sure you put the eyes, noses and mouth in the right places. This week we drew the again, and saw how practise helped us to get better at doing things, and then we coloured the with pastels. We were very proud of our portraits and have put them up in the classroom for everyone to see.

On Wednesday, despite the rain, we had a fantastic trip to Eureka. We walked together to the train station and caught the train to Halifax. This was an exciting experience in itself as some of us had never been on a train, and the journey took us through some tunnels, in and out of Bradford and through some lovely countryside.
When we arrived at Eureka we went straight to the ‘Me and My Body’ gallery and found out all about how our body works as well as gathering lots of information and measurements about ourselves. After that we explored some of the other areas and discovered a Post Office, Bank, supermarket, garage and house. Some children enjoyed the garage best and they busily put petrol in cars, changed tyres and worked the carwash. Others enjoyed pretending to work at the supermarket, bank or post-office, while some of pretended to be customers.
After all that exploring we were ready for our lunches and all too soon, it was time to return to school.
The next day we shared ideas together. We talked about all the things we had learned, played with and enjoyed. Together we made a long list of very positive adjectives to describe our visit and then we used the list, photos and brochures from Eureka to make some great posters to remind us of our trip.

We have had a fantastic start to a new school year in 2F!
The children have settled into their new classroom brilliantly and are working together in their new teams. The new Team Leaders and Team Coaches are encouraging everyone in their team to always be the best that they can be. Mrs. Fisher has been busy getting to know the children, and so our writing has focused on the holidays, our friends, what we like to do and what we would like to do when we grow up.
In Maths we have done some super shape work and together the children also learned about symmetrical patterns. The children also learned about keeping safe on the Internet and then had their first lesson on Mathletics! It was very exciting and I am very proud to say that 4 children have already got a Bronze certificate. I hope that lots of you will make sure that you achieve a certificate every week – it will really help you to become a marvellous Mathematician!
Thank you to everyone for making my first week at Farsley Farfield such a wonderful one. I’m already looking forward Monday morning and another super week! Mrs Fisher Saturday evening – I’m so proud of the children who have been playing Mathletics at home – we now have 7 children with certificates! Well done 🙂
