Welcome to Year 2!
Morgan, Armstrong, Lloyd-Webber and Hockney
Welcome back to a new year at Endeavour Primary school. This year, we have Year 2 classes based at both Campuses and we will all be working together throughout the year. Our classes are as follows:
Morgan Class: Mrs Murphy (Class teacher) and Miss Forbes (TA)
Armstrong Class: Miss Higginson (Class teacher and Year Two Leader), Mrs Wilkins (HLTA) and Mrs Spencer (Student teacher)
Lloyd Webber Class: Miss Webb (Class teacher) and Mrs Jones (HLTA)

The Day the Crayons Quit/Came home
For the first two weeks of term, we will be completing a book study based around ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ (King Campus) and ’The Day the Crayons Came Home’ (Kirk Campus). This will have a PSHE, English and Art focus where we will be thinking about feelings, emotions and changes. A home learning sheet has been sent home with activities to complete and hand in before or on 18th September.
All Creatures Great and Small (King Campus)
Our next project at King Campus will be based around animals, this will take us up until half term. This will have a Science, English and Art focus where we will be classifying animals, considering their appearance, habitat and diet.
Super Humans (Kirk Campus)
At Kirk Campus, our next project will be Super Humans. This will have a Science, English and PE focus. The children will use their observation skills to identify the main human body parts and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.
In addition to the home learning sheets that will be sent home at the beginning of a new project, children are encouraged to read and practise their spellings at home.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book which is checked daily. Each class has their own reading race where for every day a child reads at home they move their name up the chart. When a child has read 4 times or more over the week they are entered into a raffle to win a prize at the end of each half term. All children are encouraged to take part in our school wide reading challenge, which can be completed over the whole school year and can be found on the website.
Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Friday, commencing Friday 11th September, and then checked in school the following Friday.

We will be continuing with the daily run, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day. PE kits will be sent home on a Friday to be washed and returned on Monday.
King Campus – Thursday AM Kirk Campus – Wednesday AM
Please can children come into school wearing their Forest School clothes and their school uniform in a named bag. Additionally
Show and Tell:
Show and Tell will take place every Friday. Children are welcome to bring in something to share with the class. We encourage children to bring in something linked to their project learning. Please ensure it is a small item that can be wiped down and cleaned.
Please do speak to us if you have any queries or concerns. It can be a little tricky to speak on the door so it is advisable to write a note in your child’s home school diary or book an appointment with your child's class teacher though the school email address: email@example.com.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to an exciting year ahead!
