Asalaam Alaykum year 2 parents, I pray you are all well.

December is always a packed month in school and Mash Allah children have been working very hard this week!


In English we planned and wrote a newspaper report, children included events from the GFOL, amazing adjectives and eye witness accounts. The children were very passionate about this task and I could see that in their writing!


I would like you to revise 2, 5- and 10-times table. Question the children by asking them using a number sentence such as 5 x 2 is the same as 2 x 5. We have also been recognizing coins to £1 and adding them by counting in 2, 5 and 10s. Please continue to work with children on their mental multiplication focusing on 2, 5 and 10 now and introducing £1 and £2 when practicing money.


In science we are looking at different materials and how flexible they are. We enjoy going around the school and spotting objects made from different materials and children recording their findings in their books.

As I have mentioned previously please feel free to ask me anything or message me through the dojo app. If you wish to have a meeting with me, we can arrange a time however, it is crucial you let the office know as Ust Amina will book you in at the correct time therefore nothing overlaps.

Just a reminder we have 2 weeks left until our Islamic exhibition! I look forward to seeing the children’s amazing work.

Jazakum Allahu Khayran

Ust Ayesha
