Year 2 are having an amazing term with such wonderful topics. Below are photos from just a few things done this term such as: an areospace workshop, sports day, 3D shape building, dove making, magical wizard spell writing and African masks.
I can't wait to see what creative and engaging activities the last few weeks bring!
Learning in Term 3
In Year 2 this term we have been so busy learning lots of new things!
We completed our learning about The Great Fire of London and now we have become Time Travellers. We are going to travel back in time to find out all sorts of exciting things about Concorde and what Bristol was like in the past. If you know anybody with information and exciting facts about these topics, please see Miss Isaac to arrange a time to come and talk to us.
In our writing we have read a story called ‘The Dark’. We really enjoyed reading it and have produced some wonderful creative writing. This week we have been producing some non- fiction writing. We have explored some animals who hunt at night and have been outside making nests for them outside. We then wrote some instructions on what to do.
In our maths learning, we have been learning all about weight so if you need any help cooking at home, we should be experts!
As well as all this we have been busy practising our Welsh folk dance!
A warm welcome back to school and to Year 2! I hope you enjoyed the Summer holiday and managed to get out and about and enjoy the sunshine. I am very much looking forward to getting to know all of the children. This promises to be an exciting, fun filled year packed full of lots of interesting learning. I have high expectations of the children so will be expecting great things!
Our topic for Term 1 is “The Jolly Postman” and the local area.
PLEASE ensure ALL clothes especially sweatshirts are NAMED, your child is responsible for looking after their belongings and it helps if these have ther name in.
P.E will be on Monday and Friday so please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school including t-shirt, shorts and trainers/daps for outside P.E lessons. Children without P.E kits will have to miss the lesson.
Reading – Your child will have a new Reading Record Book (which also has phonics help and a list of words that every child in Year 2 needs to spell by the end of the year) and will bring home books to share at home, it is important that you continue to support them with their reading at home and especially focus on Comprehension skills – answering questions about and recalling information from the books they read.
Homework – In Year 2 children will be expected to read every day and will also have spellings to learn each week, which will be tested in school, please support your child to practise these at home. In addition to this they will have a short task with an English/Maths/Topic focus to complete. They will also be expected to know and be able to rapidly recall 2, 5 and 10 times table facts, so regularly practising these at home will also help. Homework will be handed out on a Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday at the latest.
I look forward to meeting you all and would like to thank you in advance for your help and support at home.
Mrs A Killa
