Year 2

Update for Week beginning : 18.12.17

Thank you to everyone who came to support and watch our KS1 Nativity. We were so proud of how well all the children performed and they seemed to love being in the lime light!

Christmas Week:

Next week we will be finishing of 2017 with some fun filled festive learning activities!

In R.E we will continue to learn about the Christmas Story and incarnation, as well as discussing why people are ‘thankful’ at Christmas time and what we can personally give thanks for.


Other curriculum news:

We were very lucky to have a visit from the Dorset Fire and Rescue team on Tuesday afternoon. The children loved rounding off our ‘Fire Fire’ project with a variety of activities set up by the visiting firemen; such as listening to and acting out a story about a Dragon escaping a fire, dressing up in firemen clothes as quick as if responding to an emergency, watching a powerpoint about ‘How to Train Your Family’ to stay safe in the event of a fire and more. However the best part was getting to climb aboard a fire engine to explore inside and squirt a real life fire hose across the school playground.

Spellings:  After Christmas any words your child spells incorrectly in class will be recorded in their home/school book for you to practice with them at home. Please be aware these won’t tested in school but we will be looking out for progress being made within their independent writing

Project and My Maths homework for this half term has now been set, please find homework sheet in ‘Related Learning’ on our Year Group page. Please ensure your child brings in their homework, to be presented throughout the week commencing Monday 4th December 2017.

IMPORTANT: Games/P.E lessons will take place on a  Thursday and Friday for this half term. Please can you ensure that your child brings their P.E kit back into school during the first week and has the correct labelled indoor and outdoor PE kit in school everyday.
