Welcome to Year 2
Miss Cunnane and Mrs Judge
Skills Builder - Skills we are working on improving throughout the year.
Reading should be done daily and recorded in your child's reading record.
Homework is given out on a Wednesday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Our weekly spelling test is on a Thursday.
P.E. days are on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school. They will change for PE in school and will take their kit home each half term to be washed.
In Science this half term we are learning about different Plants - Identifying different parts of plants and what it's job is, investigating what plants need to grow and planting our own Sunflower Seeds (we hope they grow!)
In Topic this half term we are learning about The Galapagos Islands - Locating the Islands on a map, learning about animals that Charles Darwin discovered there, finding out about the climate and learning about physical and human features of an island.
We are really enjoying learning skills, techniques and tactics used in the combat sport, Judo. We are also developing our balance and timing.
We completed our Sponsored Triathlon! We completed laps of the playground by skipping with a skipping rope, balancing a ball on a tennis racket and running. We found it a little bit difficult and were very tired at the end but we all had fun. The money raised will go towards school funds.
We had a great time visiting The Z Arts Centre!
We heard the story of 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' and then worked in groups to create our own animal that might visit for tea! We also had lots of fun in the role-play area using our imagination.
