Welcome to Year 2

Welcome back to the new school year.  Year 2 is an exciting time with lots to look forward to!

The staff this year are:

  • Miss Briscoe (Teacher)
  • Mrs Walton (Teaching Assistant)
  • Miss Stewart (Teaching Assistant)
  • Miss Walton (Teaching Assistant)

For our first topic we will be learning all about our local area where we live. We will be looking at the area around our school during our geography field trip.

In Literacy lessons we will be looking at lots of different stories and types of writing. We will begin with a unit all about Traditional Tales with a twist where we will be reading ‘The Three Little Wolves and The Big Bad Pig’.

Homework will be given out on a Tuesday and will be due back on a Monday.  This will include spellings and a reading book.  Children can take home a maths game which can be signed out from the classroom.  There will also be a learning challenge homework each term.  Later on in the year the children will take home a reading comprehension book.

PE is on Wednesday.  Children need their PE kit, including pumps.  Children can’t wear earrings for PE lessons.  In the Summer term we will be going swimming.

In July 2018 we have our 2 night residential trip to Rock and River where there will be many activities including archery, climbing, raft building, kayaking and canoeing.
