Y1/2 Phase

Year 2 Outdoor day- change of date

Due to World Book Day next Thursday, Year 2's outdoor day will now be on Monday 9th March.

Year 2 assembly


We would like to invite all parents and family members to join us on Friday the 14th February for the Year 2 assembly. I wonder what the theme could be?

Year 2 Homework 13th December

Your homework this weekend is to write about the Nativity Play you have just performed. What was the story about? Who were the main people involved? What did you like about it? What was your favourite Christmas Carol? Please write in full sentences, don't just answer the questions. When you are finished, please draw a picture of the nativity scene, or yourself in the play.

Wear Purple on Monday

As it is the first weekend of Advent this weekend, children have been asked to wear purple on Monday. 

Outdoor Day - Tuesday 19th November

A quick reminder that Year 2 has their Outdoor Day this coming Tuesday. Please could all children be provided with suitable outdoor clothing, it is very wet and cold at the moment. We will be outside all day regardless of the weather. Children will also need 2 changes of clothing if it particularly wet and an extra pair of shoes for when they are indoors at dinner time. 

Class 2B Prayer Service

Class 2B would like to extend a warm welcome to our parents to join us in prayer. Wednesday is the Feast of Guardian Angels and we have written our own prayers so celebrate such special helpers. 9:45am, Wednesday 2nd October in Class 2B.

Welcome Back


We hope you have all had a wonderful Summer. The children have settled back into school life extremely well and we are all working hard to follow rules, work as a team and are trying very hard to be more independent.

It was so nice to see so many parents at our workshops and we all had great fun creating out class displays with your help. We hope you found the workshop useful and fun at the same time.

Should you need any further information, please so not hesitate to contact your class teacher or our Phase Leader, Mrs Bettam. 

Maths Inspire Workshop

Thank you to all our parents in Key Stage 1 who were able to attend our Maths Workshop last week. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to share the way we do Maths in St. Edward's and for the children to be eloquent in their explanations of anchor tasks. 

We have uploaded the powerpoint we used on the day below for those of you who were unable to attend and should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

Infant Nativity

Our children have been working so hard to learn all their lines and carols for our Infant Nativity Wednesday 12th December at 2pm and Thursday 13th December at 9.30am. All are welcome to come and learn all about the journey Mary and Joseph made over 2000 years ago and the characters they encountered along the way. Grumpy Caesar demanding more and more taxes, gentle shepherds with their tiny lambs, angels declaring wondrous news, busy innkeepers who have no more room left and wise men who brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.  

Christmas Theatre Visit - Dick Whittington - Whole school

Reading Workshop

Thank you to all our families who came to our Reading Workshop on 7th November. We hope you found it informative and have taken some ideas back home with you to develop your child's reading skills.  We have attached the powerpoint from our workshop below for you to read through again, should you wish. Please don't hesitate to contact your class teacher if you require any further information.


Autumn Update


Phase 1 and 2 have had a wonderful first half term this year, with so many exciting opportunities for the children to enjoy. Everyone has settled into their new routines and are working hard with their teachers' help. Thank you so much for your continued support, making sure that the children have everything they need for day, that they are here on time and ready to learn. It has been an absolute pleasure seeing happy children running into school every day!


The focus for Year 2 this term has been London, first through the book Katie in London, then The Queen's Handbag and finally moving onto the Great Fire of London. All of our lessons have been linked to this topic in one way or another. Bread baking for Science and DT, Art work using leaves, Music, Dance and so much more. The classrooms are full of our beautiful work! 


A reminder that all parents are welcome to see our work and to talk to the class teachers next Wednesday 24th October at Parents' Evening.
