Class Updates

Friday 3rd December

This week we have been working really hard at the Nativity. Thank you for helping the children learn their lines.

In English, the children practised answering comprehension questions, focus on inference and retrieval skills. The children then had a chance to write their own questions. Today we focused on green pen work, which is how the children ‘respond’ to their marking. The children were given a piece of writing about our book, ‘Look Up!’, which was full of mistakes. The children worked slowly through it making the corrections.

In Maths the children were adding three one-digit numbers which they will be practising in their homework. Next week they will be practising starting with 10 or twenty and subtracting two one-digit numbers from it.

RE introduced the concept of Jesus as the ‘light of the world’. The children thought about a world without light. We then thought about words which describe how light makes us feel. This helped to start to understand why Jesus might have this title.

In History, the children are loving learning about The Great Fire of London. They have made miniature books which sequence the story and which they will have the chance to decorate with pictures for each scene. Today we learned about the meaning of a historical ‘source’ and worked in partners to think about what we could learn from each source, whether it be people’s emotions at the time (a letter) or what London looked like (drawings and paintings).

Next week we have a lot going on…

On Thursday 9th there will be two Nativity performances; one at 9.30am and one at 2pm. Please wear a mask. We will be collecting for charities so bring some change! It is also home clothes day.

On Friday 10th is DT day! The children will be baking. We will be telling them more next week.

From now on we will be changing the homework slightly to (hopefully!) make it more fun and varied for the children. There will continue to be a grammar focused sheet each week but less sentences to be written as part of the spellings!

Have a great weekend.

Friday 26th November

This week Hoberman class have been working really hard on the Nativity. It is all starting to come together! Thank you very much for helping the children with their lines.

In English, the children have been bringing all the vocabulary that they have been collecting from ‘Look Up!’ including interesting verbs, adjectives and now adverbs to make exciting sentences about meteor showers. The children have practised making their own adverbs from adjectives by learning rules like dropping the ‘y’ on happy before adding the ‘i’ and then ‘ly’. We then helped the children to edit their own work which they found really difficult but we will be revisiting lots over the year.

In Maths we introduced the word ‘inverse’ which means doing the opposite sum (for example, 7 + 3 = 10 would become 10 – 3 = 7). The children then used the inverse to check calculations. Today was all about the skill of estimation. The children started to use the language ‘more’, ‘less’ and ‘about’ to explain why they had made a certain estimation of an amount. The children then worked in small groups or pairs to practise estimating an amount of different objects. We used the strategy of counting ten and then reassessing our estimation and perhaps amending. The children had to be comfortable with not knowing and doing their best using all the information they had to make an estimation.

In Science the children were matching different foods to the different food groups. The children were learning big words like ‘carbohydrate’ and ‘protein’. In History the children started to create their own little booklet about the Great Fire of London.

The children really enjoyed the author and book day on Wednesday. They started the day with a special assembly by a famous illustrator and author called Fiona Lumbers who wrote Luna Loves Library Day and Clem and Crab. She did a follow-along illustration session after reading the children two stories. In the afternoon the children watched a performance of Mr Benn’s theatre production which they absolutely loved.

Have a great weekend!

Nativity homework

The nativity rehearsals are in full swing! This week we have been learning some of the choreography and next week we will be looking at our script work. Before next Wednesday, the children will need to know some of their lines off by heart. The scripts were sent home before half term but if it has been misplaced please contact your class teacher for a new one.

It would be great if you child could go over the choreography they have learnt this week before our next rehearsal on Wednesday. Below is a list of the songs and video links to myself doing the choreography. Your child only needs to go over the choreography for the song they are in.

Friday 19th November

The children have done really well to handle a lot of change in routine this week – nativity practises, school photos and today a surprise Drama session with mark!

 

Reminders and Notices:

Author and Book Day: The children have a session with an illustrator in the morning where they will be having a go at illustrating. The children can bring in money (in an envelope please!) to buy a book after the session.

Nativity lines: Keep practising!

 

In English, we have been reading ‘Look Up!’by Nathan Bryon. The children are really enjoying identifying the use of interesting language, such as, adverbs, adjectives and even metaphors. The children will be continuing to learn about adverbs next week. We have now covered nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. A lot to remember so if you can point some out in your reading that would be helpful!

In Maths, we have been thinking about the relationship between numbers. Using bar models and part whole models we have been thinking about how the numbers can be arranged into different number sentences.

In Science, we looked at a food ‘pyramid’ which can help us to understand what a balanced diet could look like. The children then sorted different foods into food which we should lots of, a bit of and not too much of.

In Art, we continued our collage work inspired by Phillipino artist Pacita Abad and her version of the Statue of Liberty.

In Relationships and Health the children shared what they thought made them special and then they shared what they thought made other people special. We wrote some of these down anonymously and shared them to start the day!

In RE the children were thinking about the Ten Commandments and starting to think each message.

Have a fantastic weekend all!

Miss Hall

Friday 12th December

Time is flying as we start to prepare for the Christmas Nativity! Miss Whiting has started to take the children through their moves and lines.

In English we continued with our poetry and really got to grips with repetition and following a pattern (that of London’s Burning). We started to perfect our use of the progressive form of the verb in the present and past tense and put it to use in our own rhymes which followed the pattern of ‘London’s Burning’!

In Maths, we have been focussing on subtraction. We continue to secure our understanding of tens and ones – there are ten ones in one ten – this helps us to ‘exchange’ if we need to.

In R.E, we have been learning about the Ten Commandments. To understand the importance of rules now and in History, we imagined a world without any rules and decided it wouldn’t be a very nice place to live!

In Humanities, we made a timeline out of different periods in History. We learned how to sequence the years before making our own ‘Great Fire of London’ tile which we added to our timeline in the right place. We looked at some drawings of London in the 1600s to help us draw a picture of London on our tile. These were so brilliant that we have added them to our classroom timeline.

In Art we started our new topic of the figure. We looked at Pacita Abad’s version of the Statue of Liberty where she changed the figure to be one who she thinks should be celebrated and who was not celebrated in history. We thought about the people we look up to and think should be celebrated. We then placed them ‘on the pedestal’ in a ‘strong’ pose in our drawing and started to create them a gown made from collaged paper.

In Relationships and Health we started to think about ‘Valuing Difference’. The children shared some ideas about what makes them different and we thought about ways that we can respond to each other when we are sharing something that we can do or enjoy.

I hope everyone has a good and restful weekend.

Miss Hall

Friday 5th November

It has been a very exciting week for Hoberman with their first ever school trip! They were all great representatives of St Stephens and we were so proud of how engaged and enthusiastic they were throughout the day.

In English we have been looking at using the progressive form of the verb in the present and past tense to show that something is in progress. We picked apart the poem ‘I’m a Tree’ by Tony Bradman’ identifying the progressive verbs and thinking of our own. For the last couple of the days the children have been planning and writing their own letters about the school trip, using adjectives, questions and their very best handwriting.

In Maths, we have been adding using tens and ones frames and today using a 100 square. Next week we will be continuing to add two 2-digit numbers before moving onto subtraction.

In Science we did a revision session on everything that we have learned so far in Year 2 about animals and how and where they survive!

In Art, we have been making something which you will be able to buy a version of in the run up to Christmas…

I will be adding some pictures of the trip to the blog soon!

Have a fantastic weekend all!

Black Voices Week by Mrs Kaz

For Black Voices Week, we have been learning about Maddie Aderin-Pocock. We learned how Maggie found school hard due to dyslexia but her passion for space drove her on in her studies! She now has an MBE for services to Science, so a truly inspirational figure. The children learned about what it was that originally inspired Maggie, from TV shows to the moon landings. The children used this to think about what inspires them which was turned into a poem in the style of the 8 year old poet Nylah Abitimo Jones who spoke at BLM processions. The children then went on to learn about Maggie’s first real love – the Moon! This was put into the context of the wider galaxy by our resident Scientist Colin who the children were lucky enough to have a session with.

Friday was Red Card to Racism day. We learned some big words like ‘diversity’ and ‘discriminate’. We learned that London is multicultural and recognised that we as a class are hugely multicultural. We then talked about the other things that make us different. We decided that a world without differences would be very boring! We celebrated our differences using them to decorate a paper doll. We then linked them up hand in hand to be hanged in the classroom to remind us that differences should be celebrated and to represent how we are all working together against discrimination.

 

DT Day Video by Mrs Kaz

 

For DT Day, we started the day by thinking about the power of puppets to tell stories and communicate messages. The children then decided what story or message they wanted to tell with their puppet before starting to draw up their own design. The children were given a wide selection of materials to choose from. After using their skills of marking, cutting, joining and shaping (using pipe cleaners) the children had themselves a ‘pop up’ puppet with moving arms!

Friday 22nd October HALF TERM

What a fantastic half term we have had in Hoberman – time has flown! We have squeezed in so much and they have done so well. They are a hugely characterful class and Mrs Kaz, Miss Joanna and I are all enjoying teaching them so much.

We need two volunteers to come with us our school trip to a couple of London landmarks and the National Gallery on Wednesday November 3rd. If you are able to help, please may you send me an email letting me know. We will be getting the bus to Buckingham Palace then walking down the Mall to Trafalgar Square where we have a tour and talk arranged at the National Gallery. We will be getting the tube back to school for 3.25pm. This trip links with our London landmarks Geography topic, our English unit about the London Guards and an introduction to art by the experts at the NG which links to everything!

In Maths, we have moved onto addition. The children will be able to practise this in their homework. Please encourage them to use a pencil and a coloured crayon to help them see what they have added. That should make sense to them… If they feel confident with ‘exchanging’ then please encourage them to add greater two digit numbers to stretch them!

In English, we finished our work on instructions by writing our own before moving onto focus on Maggie Aderin-Pocock!

Please note that after half term the children will be streamed for Maths. Half of the Year 2s will be with me in a ‘supported’ group and half with Mrs Walsh where they will be working more independently.

Have a great half term break!

Best wishes

Miss Hall

Friday 15th October

What a great end to our week with Hispanic day! Today has been all about Mexico. We kick started our day in assembly watching some traditional Flamenco dancers who gave us a flavour of what we were going to be learning later on in the day. The children were naturals in the workshop and should be able to show you some moves! In the afternoon the children were in the hands of Mrs Kaz who showed them how to make tissue flowers similar to those of Frida Kahlos who we remembered from Art earlier this term.

Before I tell you what else we have done this week, here is some information about next week:

Black Voices Week

Next week will be Black Voices week. We will be focussing on Maggie Aderin-Pocock who is a British space scientist and science educator. We will be learning about what inspired her and about some of the life saving and exciting projects that she has been a part of during her career in Science, particularly her research on space!

DT Day

Wednesday 20th October will be DT Day. The theme this year is puppets!

Pelican Crossing Design Competition

We have a competition open to all children here at St Stephen’s to design the Pelican Crossing outside our school, which the Hammersmith & Fulham Council have said they will create!

To Enter:

  • Create your original design and submit it on or before Friday 12th November – any designs received after 5pm on that day will not be shortlisted. There will be a box for entries at the office.
  • All entries must be on A4 paper – use the template or design it electronically, but do then print it out on A4 paper.
  • Make sure that the name of the child and their class is clearly written on the paper entry.
  • Multiple entries are permitted

Find the full information underneath the homework for this week.

Red Card to Racism Day

On Friday, the children should wear something red in support of the anti-racism movement which has education at its core. The children will have an assembly about racism historically and today.

 

This Week

In English, we have been learning about instruction writing. This started by identifying what a command is. We looked out for imperative (bossy!) verbs and practised using these to make our own commands. The children were very good at being bossy! We then looked closely at some instructions titled ‘How to make a London Guard’. The children identified the ‘bossy’ verbs and also the time connectives at the start of each one which help us to know when to do them. Next week we will be sequencing these instructions before writing our own using ‘bossy’ verbs and time connectives besides the other key features of instructions, such as, a title and numbers.

In Maths, we have started focusing on number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. Knowing these inside out will really help the children as we start to tackle addition of two digit numbers. The children have had a brilliant start to addition! If you are unsure of the ‘method’, take a look at our calculation policy: ST STEPHEN’S CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL (ststephensce.lbhf.sch.uk)

In R.E, we revised all the interesting parts of Hinduism which we have learned about this term. After doing a quiz the children started to independently answer questions about the whole topic to show what they have learned.

In Science, we recapped what animals need to survive. We then looked at lots of different animals and thought about the environment or habitat that they live in and thought about what they need to survive and where they get it from in their home.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Miss Hall

Friday 8th October

Another busy week in Hoberman!

Next Friday is Hispanic day and our country is Mexico. The children will be taking part in a dance workshop in the morning and we will being doing all sorts of Mexican themed activities all day! The following week, starting with October 18th, is Black Voices Week. The theme is STEM and we will be choosing a famous Black scientist to be the focus of a series of lessons during the week.

In English, we have been practising our reading comprehension skills with the book The Big Bad Mood by Tom Jamieson. The children designed their own Big Bad Mood monster which they practised describing to their partner to really embed the exciting adjectives that we have been learning about. The children then focussed on verbs and creating sentences using capital letters, full stops and a verb. We finished this week by thinking about what questions we have about our next topic– London Guards! The children practised using a question word and a question mark. I will now be finding out the answers ready for Monday’s English lesson! Next week, the children will focus on instructions and specifically following some to make a London Guard. Once they have successfully followed the instructions we will be dissecting them to work out what made them so easy to follow. The children will be working towards writing their own set of instructions featuring time connectives, adverbs and bossy verbs!

In Maths, we have been doing lots of quizzes to get us used to mixed maths problems relating to place value. The children did a fantastic job and we are impressed by all that they have learnt so far. As already mentioned, from half term onwards the children will be divided into two maths classes – one will be the ‘supported’ group, with more adults than the other. The lessons will be the same for each class.

In Humanities, we have been thinking about the seasons and what we could do in London in each one! The children used their knowledge of London landmarks to help them make lots of great suggestions.

In R.E, we learned about pilgrimages and specifically the one which millions of Hindus go on every year to the River Ganges and Varanasi.

In Science, we thought about what different animals need to survive. We know that all animals including humans need oxygen, water and food and thought about the different ways that different animals get each one! We then chose an imaginary pet and thought about what we would need to do to keep it alive!

In Relationships and Health, the children thought about how to be a ‘good friend’. We discussed different scenarios and what would be the right thing to do. The children then worked in pairs to decide whether an action or scenario was about a ‘good friend’ or a ‘bad friend’.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Friday 1st October

Thank you to all those parents who came to and contributed to the Family Supper yesterday evening.

 

In English this week the children have been completely engrossed in writing their stories based on The Lion in the Meadow. The children have been practising using adjectives at all possible chances to make their stories more interesting. Next week we will be editing and then starting a new English unit focussing on instructions.

 

In Maths the children have been placing numbers on a number line. This started by placing multiples of 2, 3, 5 or 10 and then became slightly more tricky by having to place numbers which were outside the multiples. The children had to place the multiples and then ‘estimate’ where the number should go. Today the children were finding the multiple of ten above and below a given number. All practise on counting in 2s and 5s and 10s (and 3s if the others have been mastered) will really support them in their Maths moving forwards.

 

In Relationships and Health Education we talked about the differences between teasing and bullying. The children had a chance to write down or share any concerns and we had a good discussion.

 

In Humanities, we looked at geographical features and identifying them on a key and in a picture. We spent some time looking at a map to clear up once and for all that there are no beaches (apart from Hyde Park’s) in London!

 

In RE the children were learning about how Hindus use all their senses in a Mandir (Hindu Temple) to fully concentrate on their worship/prayer. The children asked lots of very interesting, thoughtful questions on the topic.

 

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Miss Hall

Friday 24th September

Hoberman Class have had a busy week. The children are really getting into the swing of things and have already done some brilliant work.

We continued reading The Lion in the Meadow and a story based on it called The Tiger Under the Stairs. We then started to plan our own version of the story. The children’s imaginations ran wild and they have finished the week by planning their own story. The focus will be on capital letters, full stops, adjectives and expanded noun phrases.

Thank you all very much for sending in the baby photos. We had a brilliant Science lesson guessing who was who! Mr Schumm even joined in the fun! The children then recorded what they were able to do as a baby, before thinking about and recording what they can do now.

In Maths, we have been looking at ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’. We then practised counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.

In R.E, we were doing some ‘Karma drama’ – using our acting skills to demonstrate what ‘good karma’ looks like. We learnt how most Hindus and Bhuddists believe in Karma.

In Art, we continued to work on our line drawing portraits, adding some bright ‘pop art’ colours and starting to work on our own ‘Litchenstein’ spots.

In Relationships and Health the children started to name and ‘show’ their emotions using their faces and body language. The rest of the children had to guess the emotion from each child’s performance. We discussed how no emotion is ‘wrong’ and it is normal to feel different emotions.

 

Harvest Festival 

It is wonderful that we are getting back to some semblance of normality at St Stephens and that we can all meet together to celebrate our church festivals. On that note, you are all invited next Thursday morning at 9pm (September the 30th) to our Harvest Festival where we come together to thank God for our harvest. This will be held in St Stephens Church.

Every year we collect non-perishable goods to go towards feeding those in need at a local charity. Like last year, proceeds will go to the ‘Upper Room’. You would have all received a parentmail with the list of appropriate goods. We look forward to seeing you there.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Hall

Friday 17th September

The children have blown us away this week with their focus with their learning. We have had a really lovely, calm learning environment during lots of lessons this week which is a win!

We started reading The Lion in the Meadow and used this to practise our comprehension skills. Our grammar focus for the week was commas in a list which the children can practise in their homework. We also started to look at expanded noun phrases (adjective, adjective noun) to help make our writing more interesting. If the children can find (and understand) any particularly exciting adjectives they can share them with the class next week and maybe even go on our ‘WOW Word Wall’ where we collect new vocabulary!

In Maths the children continued to work on their partitioning of two-digit numbers. The children have been partitioning the same number lots of different ways and even with different part whole models. Some with more than two parts, some turned upside down and on their side etc. We finished the week by using greater than, less than and equal to symbols to compare dienes and then numbers.

In Relationships and Health we imagined our ideal classroom – calm, happy, safe, kind (sweets and chocolates also got suggested…). We all made a pledge for what our contribution will be to create this ‘perfect’ classroom and made a big paper chain out of our pledges which is now hanging in the classroom.

In computing the children practised logging in and using J2e.

In RE the children learned about Hindu values and made comparisons between these and our own – whether of faith or not.

Humanities focussed on London landmarks. The children answered multiple choice or quiz-style questions about some of the key London landmarks using an information sheet to find the answers.

In Science, the children were matching baby animals to their fully grown version!

Homework

Look at last week’s blog for more information about the standard spelling homework.

This week the children need to complete their comprehension/grammar task in addition to their spellings. This will be stuck in their book. I have said to the children to just do as much as they can! There is a big step up in terms of the amount of homework, so please just do as much as you think the children can manage. We don’t want it to ruin weekends/evenings! Better they have a positive attitude towards it than hating it.

Science Request

Please may you email me one picture of your child as a baby for an upcoming Science lesson. I am still missing some!

Maths Streaming

After half term we will be ‘streaming’ the children into Maths groups based on the level of support a child needs. One will be the ‘supported’ group and will have more adults in the room than the other. Both groups cover the same National Curriculum objectives. For now, we want to keep the children in their classes so we can continue to get to know their ability levels. The groups will continue to be fluid depending on how each child is finding each maths topic.

Pelican Music

If your child has music lessons with Pelican. Please let the music teacher know directly if your child cannot make a session. We will let them know about school trips.

Parent Readers Request

We are looking for regular readers to come in and help us read with the children. We would be so grateful to anyone who can spare thirty minutes on a regular basis – weekly or ideally daily to read with the children. First thing 9am to 9.30am everyday would work well. Regular reading is a huge support to the children’s overall learning and they would all love someone else to read with. Any volunteer would need to complete a DBS check. Email me if you are interested and can spare the time.

 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Miss Hall

Friday 10th September

The children have done an amazing job at stepping up to Year 2!

This week we have been reciting our class poem ‘Brother’ by Mary Ann Hoberman and using this to inspire our own poems. By the end of the week, the children knew most of the poem by heart and had some actions to help them along the way. We now have a whole host of amazing, imaginative poems about cars, hoovers and family members ready to go up on our English board in our classroom.

In Maths the children have been working on place value which is all built on our understanding that (in a two digit number) one digit represents the tens and one represents the ones. We practised making numbers using dienes and then moved onto ‘partitioning’ which is the focus of the arithmetic homework this week. We also looked at spelling numerals as words which is our spelling homework for the week.

In Relationships and Health we talked a lot about any worries we might have, if the children weren’t scared of spiders they might be now… The children then wrote about or drew any worries and ‘fed’ them to our ‘Worry Monster’. The idea is that by writing about or drawing worries, they get smaller.

In computing the children practised logging in and then had a play on J2E (lockdown memories) and found a picture of a piece of work they did last year and had a play with adding text of different sizes and colours to ‘label’ it.

In RE the children started their Hinduism topic. The children were interested to learn about the importance of family in Hinduism. We then thought about the importance of family to themselves and about anything that is similar between their family and a Hindu family.

Humanities was all about London! The children finished the lesson by playing a board game which involved true or false quiz cards which they had to answer correctly in a race to the end of the board!

Homework

Homework is on the blog in the side box labelled ‘Homework’. Please may this be returned by Thursday at the absolute latest next week. The sooner the better! Your child’s red homework book is (should be!) in their bag. If anyone cannot print the homework and really needs us to print it for them and send it home each week, just email me.

There will be a label inside the front cover of their homework book that explains if they are in green group (6 spellings), purple group (9 spellings) or blue group (12 spellings). This will be something that is fluid throughout the year. They will need to learn their spellings for a relaxed spelling test each Friday as well as writing each of the words 4 times in the front of their homework book to help them remember how to spell them.

Following this, they will need to write 4 sentences using words from their spelling list in the front of their homework book.

There will be a small Arithmetic task set at the bottom of the homework sheet, which is to be completed in the back of the homework book. For this week, we have given the children a sheet to help them layout their maths homework which is stuck in at the back.

Each Friday we will set tasks on Mathletics which are to be completed by the following Monday.

PE

For this week coming the children will have PE on Friday instead of Tuesday. Please may the children wear their gym kit on Thursday and Friday. It will then be back to Tuesdays and Thursdays!

Reading Books

If there are still any at home, please make sure they come in on Monday and we will change them as a one off! They need to be in on Fridays going forward.

Science Request

Please may you email me one picture of your child as a baby for an upcoming Science lesson.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Miss Hall

Friday 3rd September

We have had a great start to the new school year. Mrs Kaz and I have both had a lot of fun getting to know the children and are looking forward to meeting you all further down the line. Drop off and pick up don’t often make for a good chance for a chat!

The last couple of days have been all about learning how Year 2 works, getting to know each other and a whole lot of art! We spent this afternoon focussing on the story of Frida Kahlo and looking at how Mexico inspired her artwork. We have begun our own self portraits and will be adding inspiration from countries which are important to us next week.

 

Please find below useful information about Year 2:

Homework

Homework will set each week on a Friday and will need to be returned by the latest on Wednesday the following week. Your child will be given a homework book to complete their spelling homework, sentences and Maths homework in. The homework sheet will be uploaded to the class blog on a Friday each week.

The children will have a set of spellings to learn. There will be a label inside the front cover of their homework book that explains if they are in green group (6 spellings), purple group (9 spellings) or blue group (12 spellings). This will be something that is fluid throughout the year. They will need to learn their spellings for a relaxed spelling test each Friday as well as writing each of the words 4 times in the front of their homework book to help them remember how to spell them.

Following this, they will need to write 4 sentences using words from their spelling list in the front of their homework book.

There will be a small Arithmetic task set at the bottom of the homework sheet, which is to be completed in the back of the homework book.

Each Friday we will set tasks on Mathletics which are to be completed by the following Monday.

We don’t want to overload the children with homework at the beginning of the term as the main thing is that they feel settled and happy in Year 2 so the homework will start on Friday 10th September.

Instead the children can start to learn their Hoberman class poem called Brother over the weekend. The poem has been uploaded in the homework box. If the children would like to they could also draw some pictures about the poem.

 

PE

PE is on Tuesday and Gymnastics is on Thursday so the children need to come to school in their PE kits on those days.

Reading Books

Reading books will go home on Monday each week. They must be returned by Friday with a signature inside the yellow reading book to let us know that they have read the book and the books can be changed.

 

Red Words

These are the tricky words (cannot be spelt phonetically) which the children need to learn how to spell by the end of Year 2.

Please email me if you have any questions at all.

Have a great weekend!
