- About Us
Hello, just a reminder that this Friday is our reading morning where you can come into school to see how reading is taught in Year 2. You will also have the opportunity to look at a SAT's reading paper with your children to see what we are aiming towards next year.
After the reading session there will be coffee and tea in the main hall as well as a book and uniform swap.
We hope to see you then.
Last week we visited the local church to see the 'Christmas Journey'. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and had lots of questions when we got back to school!
We also had a visit from the British Judo Association. The children took part in a 30 minute lesson and practised different judo techniques. This week we have Dance City coming to join us on Wednesday. Children may come in to school in PE kits or get changed during the day.
In Geography we have been looking at physical features. We have been learning about Zimbabwe and focused on the physical landmark Victoria Falls. The children then went outside and created Victoria Falls using natural objects. We then came back in and wrote about what we had created.
Our Christmas show this year will be a performance of poems and Christmas songs. Lines and the words will be sent home this week.
In Year 2 we have been learning how to create PowerPoint presentations. Within our presentations we can now insert text, insert pictures and add animations. The children have created some wonderful presentations which include lots of facts about our topic Africa.
A huge well done to our Pupils of the Month, Eve and Gracie-Lea!
Thank you for all of your bottle lid contributions so far. If you do collect anymore please send them into school so that they can be used for our project.
On Wednesday 23rd October at 1:30pm it is our 'Reading at Home' themed event. Parents and children, please come in to school in your favourite comfy clothes and read your favourite bedtime stories, snuggled up with a hot chocolate. You can also buy raffle tickets at £1 per strip from the office and win one of our fabulous prizes!
If you haven't already, please sign up to our parents evening on the 4th and 5th November. Appointments can be arranged via the office. If no suitable time is available please email email@example.com and your class teacher will be in touch.
We have had a fantastic first half term in Year 2. All the children have settled in well and have been working extremely hard. We look forward to another exciting half term.
We had a wonderful visit from our African friends from Zimbabwe and Tanzania. They taught the children their language through song and the children had a wonderful time. We also learned about the geography of Zimbabwe which will help us next term with our topic.
Thank you to all your support during 'muddy mayhem'. It was a fantastic afternoon and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
We have organised our first themed reading event entitled 'reading at home' which will take place on Wednesday 23rd October at 1:30pm. Children (and adults) may come in to school dressed in their favourite 'comfy' clothes. This could be anything from pj's to tracksuit bottoms or jeans. We would love you and your children to be sharing their favourite bedtime stories, sat with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. There will also be a raffle with tickets £1 per strip with the money going towards trips for years 1 and 2. We would love it if you could join us.
A huge thank you to Blake's Mam for making us some wonderful plaques for 'star of the week' and 'star of the month'. Jack got to take home the first 'star of the month' plaque in 2N and 'star of the week' will be issued on Friday. Could you please ensure the plaques are in by the following Thursday and we will message on Marvellous me when we require the month plaque back in.
Just a polite reminder that if you haven't already booked an appointment that Year 2's parents evening is on the 5th November. Appointments can be made via the office.
What a fabulous week the children have had whilst settling in to Year 2! Miss Golightly and I have been so impressed with how well behaved and sensible the children have been and also how quickly they have settled in to the year group.
In the next week a newsletter will be coming out with information regarding our topics and key vocabulary you could be looking at at home with your children.
Some other information you need to know are: PE days in Year 2 are Mondays and Tuesdays. Accelerated reader will be done every day so please ensure children have reading books with them. Mathletics tasks will be assigned by Friday and we will put on Marvellous Me when they need completing by. Information regarding parents evening appointments will also be released in the next few days.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or arrange a time with the office staff to meet with myself or Miss Golightly.
Here's to a exciting year!
