Welcome back 2L!

2L had a lovely first day back yesterday. It was lovely to hear all of the exciting activities the children got up to over the holidays, especially all the sweets they collected over Halloween.

Library cards

The children have recently had an assembly from  the Doncaster Library Service. Today your child will come home with an application letter for a library card. It would be lovely to see so many children sign up for a card and have a love of reading. These letters can be returned to school and they will be collected by the Doncaster Library Service and sorted from there.

Family learning.

It was fantastic to see such a big turn out to our family learning event last week. The children loved sharing their learning with you and there was a lovely buzz in the classroom of excitement! Some lovely arts and crafts were produced by all and the rock paintings look FANTASTIC!

Frog learning.

Today the children have come home with login details for frog learning, which we are using as another form of home learning. The children are excited to explore the website and have had a sneak peak of the quiz that has been set for them.

It has also been fantastic to see more children signed up to maths with parents. I have noticed it has been really useful and shows in their learning. Just a little reminder to those parents who haven’t signed up yet, the details are:


Class name: 2L

Family learning day

On Thursday 10th October, Key Stage One are hosting a family learning afternoon. This will be a very practical session of producing arts and crafts activities with your children. It would be lovely to see as many adults there as possible. The children are super excited about this!

Potteric Carr

2L had a fantastic first school trip together to Potteric Carr yesterday. We participated in many activities including pond dipping, minibeast hunting and bird watching. The children really enjoyed all of the activities and showed great behaviour characteristics all day, which made Miss Lotysz and all of the other adults very happy.

Thank you Warburtons!

2L have had a super exciting day today! This afternoon we were very lucky to have a visit from Michelle who works at Warburtons, she taught us all about healthy eating and how to make a sandwich. The children had so much fun making the sandwiches, but I think we can all agree they had more fun eating them! 

Year 2 are loving minibeasts!

It has been lovely to see how much the Year 2 children are embracing their expedition learning and exploring the question ‘What minibeasts can survive in Doncaster?’ I have noticed at playtimes some children have been building houses for the minibeasts that live in our school grounds.

Minibeast hunt

Today we have been on a minibeast hunt outside on our playground and FS2 playground. We enjoyed the minibeast hunt and found lots of spiders! We had to tick the minibeasts that we had found. After we had finished our hunt, we made a pictogram to show our results.

In the afternoon, we drew a minibeast and painted it, we got rather messy.

First day in Year 2.

We have had a fun first day back at school. We have been looking at our new expedition which is called ‘What minibeasts can survive in Doncaster?’ We have talked about what we already know about minibeasts and what we would like to find out about minibeasts.


We have been very lucky in Key Stage One to get new toilets over the holidays. We think they look super!
