Welcome to Year Two and the new school year.
Our topic this term is Amazing Animals. In science we will be looking different animals and comparing them. We will also learn more about ourselves and how we keep healthy. In Geography we will be using maps to locate places around the world and name man made and human features. During our RE lessons we will be learning about the Creation Story in the bible, the importance of Harvest festival as well as looking at Christian and Muslim signs and symbols. In our art topic the children will be able to create animal prints. A very busy half year.
PE- Tuesday and Thursdays
Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school including warm appropriate clothing for out door PE. Kits are to be in school as there may be some other non timetabled PE time. Kits will returned o the last day of the half term for washing.
This is given out on Thursday afternoon to be returned on Tuesday morning. It consists of SPAG and Maths workbooks that has helpful hints and explanations in plus a normal homework book. Please only complete the pages that are asked as these work books are to last all year. Your children will be responsible for the sticking in of their homework and for bringing it home and returning it.
It is an expectation of the school that the children read at least three times per week. Daily is desirable. The children have the opportunity to change their books daily in Year Two. If your child has not changed and you feel they need a new book please come and see me after school and I can change them. Please encourage your child's independence in changing their own books.
Your child will have weekly spellings according to their phonic group. These will be posted on the website on Thursday afternoon and stuck in their homework books Testing will be done on Tuesday morning. Please note that reading and spelling of the 100 and 200 words are still key and are tested every term . If you need a new list of these words see the documents below or please come and see me.
A Meet the teacher meeting date will be advised in the next few days. If you have any queries please contact the school office and I will gladly meet with you after school. Mornings are difficult as we are settling the children, so please pass on an messages via the school office or Mrs Burgess or Mrs Clarke in the school playground.
I look forward to a happy and successful year
