We have performed fits of the pseudoscalar masses and decay constants, from a variety of RBC-UKQCD domain wall fermion ensembles, to $SU(2)$ partially quenched chiral perturbation theory at next-to leading order (NLO) and next-to-next-to leading order (NNLO). We report values for 9 NLO and 8 linearly independent combinations of NNLO partially quenched low energy constants, which we compare to other lattice and phenomenological determinations. We discuss the size of successive terms in the

We conclude that, for the range of pseudoscalar masses explored in this work, $115~\mathrm{MeV} \lesssim m_{\rm PS} \lesssim 430~\mathrm{MeV}$, the NNLO $SU(2)$ expansion is quite robust and can fit lattice data with percent-scale accuracy.
