- 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
- Show and tell is every Friday afternoon. In year 2 show and tell must be linked to our current project.
Our outdoor PE slot for the this term is on a Tuesday afternoon where the children will be learning a range of ball skills skills. We will also have dance with Mr Bridle every Thursday.
Every afternoon we aim to 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.
Forest school will continue for children at the King Campus this half term. This will be on a Thursday morning, so children may come to school dressed in their Forest School clothes and bring their uniform in a named bag. Please check your child's class window for more information on Forest School.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home/school book which are checked daily. Each class has their own reading race where for everyday they read at home their name will move up a chart. When a child has read 5 times or more over the week they are entered into a raffle to win a prize at the end of every half term. They will also be awarded a house point for everyday they read including weekends and holidays.
All children are encouraged to take part in our school wide reading challenge, which can be completed over the whole school year. This will give the children the opportunity to read a range of genres and develop their pleasure for reading.
Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Friday and then checked in school the following Friday. Please support your child in learning to spell these words.
Project: 'The Great Explorer'.
On Monday 4th November, Year 2 received a mysterious bag that was full of different clothing and pieces of equipment. The children were able to draw on their prior knowledge to work out that the bag belonged to Polar explorer. This launched our new project where for the next 4 weeks, children will be completing a book study around the book 'The Great Explorer'. This project will have an English, Geography and DT focus. Children will be writing newspaper reports and diary entries, learning to locate the Arctic and will make their very own hot air balloons.
