Year 2

A huge well done to all the children who have come in on their own this week! We have been so impressed with their independent, more mature attitude. Thank you parents.

This week we have been thinking about what humans and animals need to survive. Next week we will be thinking about why exercise and hygiene are really important. The children will be designing their own PE session. 

Next week in PSHE, we will be talking about anti-bullying. We will also be marking Children in Need with a non-uniform day on Friday.

As the weather is getting much colder, it is important for the children to have suitable outdoor PE kits, e.g, jogging bottoms and a jumper to keep them warm.

 

 

Around the world in half a term!

We had a few technical issues on Friday so apologies for a slightly late blog.

It has been a busy start to this half term! The children have been planning their own stories in English and we have begun our topic on Continents of the World. David Attenborough’s programme ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’ started last weekend and will explore the wildlife on all seven continents. This will link brilliantly with our topic, if you are happy to watch it with your child.

We have been lucky enough to get outside for PE. However, some children did not have their full PE kit. Please can you make sure they have something warm to wear and appropriate shoes.

Children will have the opportunity to use Sparx twice a week in school. If you are having trouble signing in, please could you let us know via the home learning link and we can send sign-in details home with the children.

Off around the World…

Happy Half Term

It has been a pleasure to see how well the children have settled into Year 2.  They have done especially well at getting their ‘Read To Succeed’ tickets.  The boxes were full today as they were collected for the draw in assembly.  

We hope that you all have a relaxing half term with family and friends.  Don’t forget to keep up with the reading and get those reading diaries signed!  We look forward to welcoming you back to another busy half term.

Please support your child by reminding them to come in independently after the holiday.  Urgent messages can be passed to us via the office or to a teaching assistant if they are nearby.

Bend, twist, stretch and squash!

This week, the children have been busy investigating different materials and their properties. They discovered that some materials could be either bent, twisted, stretched or squashed and some could achieve all four!

We have started a new story in English – Caterpillar Shoes – and the children have really enjoyed acting out the different parts. See if they can retell the story to you using lots of description.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at parents evening next week. If you cannot make your appointment, please let us know so that we can rearrange.

After half term, we will expect the children to come in independently and would greatly appreciate your help with this.
