- Children are able to change their banded books as and when they need to when they come into school in the morning. Boxes of books are outside the classrooms for children to independently choose from.
- Indoor PE is for the first Spring term is every Wednesday morning. We will also be doing dance every Friday.
- Show and tell is every Friday afternoon. In year 2 show and tell must be linked to our current topic. Our topic for the first Spring term is 'From one extreme to another', learning all about the Arctic and Antarctic.
Our indoor PE slot for the first spring term is on a Wednesday morning. This is taught by our external sports coach Mr Stowe and the children will be learning a range of sports skills. We will also be doing dance on a Friday morning.
Every afternoon we go for a 5 minute run around the field where children challenge themselves to match or beat the number of laps run each day. Therefore, it is suggested that children keep their PE kits in school for the whole week as we encourage children to change their shoes to take part in the daily run.
From one extreme to another
Our topic for the first Spring term is 'From one extreme to another'. Children will be learning about both the Arctic and Antarctic which will include learning about the geography of each place and the animals that live there as well as making comparisons of the two.
On Tuesday 20th November year 2 were invited to Harmony Woods to plant trees. Despite it being a rather chilly morning, year 2 had great fun working in pairs to plant a tree. Click on the link below to see some pictures from our morning.
