'Towers, Tunnels and turrets'
Please read below to find out all about our Spring Topic...
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower. Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side. And finally, meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls, they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down.
Our PE days this term are Wednesday and Friday
Please read 3-5 times a week to achieve your bronze, silver or gold reading badge
Welcome to our year 2 class page!
This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mum's and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address? Find out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times. When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps on and paintbrushes at the ready. Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras – it’s time to start investigating.
Please see below for key information for this year:
Homework - Homework will be sent out of a Friday and will be a literacy or maths task (alternated each week) along with spellings and a target to read 3 times in that week. Your child will get a week to complete the homework but it can be brought it and put in the homework box if its completed before then.
PE - Currently our PE days are Tuesday and Friday however due to some timetable changes it could be moved during the week. I would suggest leaving your child's PE kit on their peg all week 'just in case'
New organisers - Your child has got a new home/school organiser that should be used daily. In there you can document any reading that is done at home as well as use the learning pages to support your child. If this is lost a cost of £3 will be issued.
Please send your child to school with a bag or school book bag for them to transport items from school to home/home to school especially during the wet weather. Your child will be given a reading book appropriate for their reading level which will be changed weekly.
