Follow our learning journey below. Here you will find regular updates from our time in class and any useful links and documents you may need.
Spellings will be marked after the test on Friday. If you would like to find out how your child did then please remind them to bring me their home spelling book and I will write down their score.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back Year 2, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and thank you for all your lovely cards and gifts - it is much appreciated.
Year 2 will now have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon with Mr Keating and Mrs Lawrence but we ask they continue to have their PE kits in school all week.
Music will now be the last session on a Thursday so Miss Masterson will see them out at the end of the day on a Thursday and Mrs Lawrence on a Wednesday after PE.
The children have been working very hard all week rehearsing the Christmas play. We have a few more rehearsals left and we will be ready to perform to you all! We look forward to seeing you in the audience.
Year 2 children will need to bring a bag of party clothes with them to get changed into on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
As part of our topic we have been learning about the Antarctic this week. This is the location we have chosen for Sunny the meerkat to visit. We are currently writing a letter from him back to his family living in the Kalahari desert.
Around The World
The whole school topic for this half term is 'Around the world'. We will be reading 'Meercat Mail' and learning about the different places Sunny is visiting. We will then learn about new and different climates and pick one we think Sunny should visit - then we will write a letter from Sunny back to his family describing is new surroundings. Throughout this sequence of learning children will be given the opportunity to use maps and atlases and practise using these.
Once upon a time
Our whole school topic for this half term is 'Once upon a time'.
We will be reading and writing different traditional tales as well as learning about castles as part of our history topic.
