Summer Term

As we head towards the Summer Holidays we thought we would end this year with a fun topic. So here goes it's DISNEY TIME!!!!!!!

Over the coming weeks we will be doing activities based on 3 different Disney Films, ALADDIN, LION KING and MOANA. There will be English, Maths, Science, Reading, Spelling ,DT and Geography all linked to the film of the week. We had a lot of fun planning these activities and we hope you enjoy them. Of course if you come up with your own ideas then lead your own learning. Keep up updated with photos. 

Printed packs are available from the office. 

If you do not have access to the DVD or DISNEY+ then Youtube links for the relevant scenes will be added to this webpage.

....our doors are always open. Please do come and see us if any matters arise. If a proper appointment is needed, please make it at the office. We have our open registration morning on a Wednesday and this is an opportunity to take a look at the work in the classroom and to take part in some topic related activities with your child. Please note, that open registration is not an appropriate time to discuss individual concerns though- your teacher will be far better able to help you during your own appointment time. 

 

 

 

 

OUR CURRICULUM- What will your child learn this term?

Year 2 Spring Newsletter

 

 

We hope you had a lovely Christmas break. The children are all keen and eager to learn about our new topic AFRICA!

 

Important Information

 

Please can children bring water in bottles for the classroom.

Please label all your child’s clothes.

School ties need to be worn every day.

Book bags need to be brought into school every day.

 

 

 

Our topic this term is Africa. Our key learning skills this half term will be Geography based and will move onto Music, Dance and Drama after half term.

We will be learning about the diverse people, landscapes, animals, food, culture, weather throughout the continent of Africa.

 

If you have any African books, artefacts or objects that would support our class learning we would love to see them!

Our Geography open afternoon will be on Wednesday 12th February where we will be cooking a range of African food to share with you.

 

Open Registration

 

Please note that our open registration morning is on WEDNESDAY. This is an ideal opportunity to discuss any issues that you want to share with us, as well as having the chance to do some morning activities with your child.

 

Reading

 

We encourage children to have reading experiences at home at least three times a week. This is key preparation for the KS1 SATS. So regular reading is crucial.

If there is any way that we can support you in this, don’t hesitate to talk to us. Do use the reading diaries to keep us informed of any reading opportunities at home.

 

P.E. Sessions

2KC will have P.E. on Monday mornings.

2LA will have P.E. on Wednesday afternoons.

 

Library sessions

 

2KC – Tuesday

2LA - Wednesday

 

SATS information session

After school on Thursday 27th February we are hoping to have a session where we can show you some examples of KS1 SATS papers and how we are preparing the children for the tests in May. Our main aim is to promote a positive approach where the children are comfortable with what is expected of them as we did with the Year 1 Phonics Check.

If you have any queries about your child please don’t hesitate to ask, our doors are always open.
