Year 2   2016 / 2017

Welcome to Year 2!  Our teaching team consists of Mrs Hunnisett and Miss Hibbert in 2H and Miss Danican, Ms Lynch and Mr Bastable in 2D.  Topics covered over the year will be Our World, After Dark, Space, Farming, Roald Dahl and World of Adventures.

Homework is given out on a Thursday or Friday and is due in on the following Tuesday.  This will mainly consist of times tables and spellings, so please support your children by helping them learn them.  Reading daily is essential; please write in the reading record when you have heard your children read.

Children will be having regular PE sessions, both inside and outside.  They will need their outdoor PE kit on a Tuesday and indoor PE kit on a Thursday.  It is always a good idea to have  both PE kits in school at all times. Please remember to put names in PE kits and uniform.  Children need to access water throughout the day, so please send in a named water bottle for them to have in class.  We also have termly sessions at Green Zone to look forward to.

Be prepared to work hard and have fun in Year 2!

This term we have all been learning about space!  We started the term by making our very own space shuttles.  We did this using two of our school values, creativity and collaboration.  We had lots of fun whilst making the space shuttles.  We all thought about the things we wanted to learn about space and shared our questions with our classmates.  We were so lucky that Mrs Uppal was able to book a special Space assembly, where we learnt lots about being an astronaut, just like Tim Peake!  

We found out all sorts of amazing things about the International Space Station and the European Space Agency.  It was lots of fun.  We have learnt lots about Tim Peake so we used what we had found out to write fact files about him.  We have really enjoyed our space topic.

We have visited Green Zone twice recently.  The first time we went with 6K and we took part in bird watching and a treasure hunt.  We collaborated with the Yr6's which was really good fun.  The second time we went, we had hot potatoes!  They were lovely and warm on a chilly day.  We can't wait to go to Green Zone again in Term 4.
