This year the teacher working in Year 2 is Mrs Bennett. Mrs Brown will be supporting in the classroom every day. Miss Ormston will be teaching in the classroom on a Tuesday afternoon to cover Mrs Bennett's PPA time.
We have an exciting term planned. We begin with our trip to The Theatre Royal to see the pantomime. This is followed by a visit to our school by the author, Luke Temple. The children will have a chance to purchase a signed copy of one of his books. This term we are starting our new topic, The Great Fire of London. Later in the term we will try some cooking! We will recreate a pudding or soup from the 17th century!
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child's PE Kit is in school every day just in case we have a change. Our library session will take place on a Friday afternoon.
Please keep checking back for updates and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
During the school day your child will read regularly in small groups and on their own. In order to help your child develop their reading skills, it is expected that they will read at least three times per week at home.
As well as reading, your child will be expected to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables so that they can recall the answers quickly. They will also have weekly spelling sheets to complete. Once a month, the children will bring home a piece of homework relating to the current value. They will share this completed learning with their friends, in the classroom, at the end of each month. If you have any questions regarding your child’s homework please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 2 team.
