It has been a wonderful start to the new school year. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children and everyone has settled in brilliantly. Together we are getting used to the routines of year 2 and everyone is ‘Being the Best that they can be.’
In our Circle Time on Friday when we reflected on how the week had gone, many of the children said that their favourite thing during the week had been Mathletics! The thing that we decided together we needed to work on next week, was ‘not chatting at the tables, so that we could all work even harder and concentrate better.’ Everyone has promised to help us achieve this next week!
Everyone has their Mathletics information stuck into their new Reading Records. Please encourage your child to try and learn their passwords and usernames. Children can use their user names and passwords at home and there is a link to Mathletics from the Maths Links page on our blog. You can also download a free Mathletics app on iPads and Android devices.
To achieve a certificate the children need to earn more than 1000 points in one week. (You can only get one certificate a week) Quite a few of the class did achieve their first certificates and we were really proud to get the class into the Top UK Class Chart and several children reached the Top Student Chart too.
Each week there is a Mathlete of the week from Year 2. A trophy is taken home for the week (to be returned on the Friday morning) and a certificate is awarded. Here is our 1st Mathlete of the week, he achieved the 1st Certificate in year 2 and scored over 9000 points!
Special Mentions this week – well done to everyone in class too, it was extremely difficult to choose just 2 children.
Leah has had a fabulous first week at our school and has been the best she can be in everything we have done. We would all like to welcome her to school and 2F. ‘Be happy.’
Bradley has really concentrated on his work and hasn’t chatted on the carpet or at his table. ‘Be the best you can be.’
Well done to everyone for a wonderful week.
Next week we will be starting our ‘Bees’ topic, so I will be posting some links to help you find out lots of amazing information. The Year 2 Newsletter will be ready early next week, in the meantime, if you have any questions or queries please just ask any member of staff or send me an email.
Have a fabulous weekend, from Mrs Fisher and all the Team 2F team. 🙂

Well done to everyone this week for working so hard on Mathletics! So many of you attend the Monday Mega Mathletics Club and now nearly the whole class came to our Wednesday Lunchtime Mathletics Club. So many of you have certificates this week and have been aiming to beat your personal best score that together we have reached Number 2 in the UK Classes Hall of Fame!
Be the best you can be!
