Year 2

Update for Week beginning : 13/3/17

English and Maths information:

In English we will be writing non-fiction fact sheets about the basic needs of different animals. We will be using the information researched through the internet and reading non-fiction books.

In Maths we will be investigating if ‘Taller children always have bigger shoes’ by measuring shoe sizes and height and comparing them to answer our investigation statement.

Other curriculum news:

This week is Science Week!

We are focusing on the life cycles of animal and humans, as well as exploring what keeps us fit and healthy. We will be learning about hygiene, balanced diets and why we need to exercise. We will also be visiting our Academies’s nature garden and pond to observe the tadpoles growing into frogs. To finish off the week we are lucky enough to have a visit from Copper the dog (thanks to Mr Brown)  to discuss the basic needs of animals.

We are continuing to link ‘Philosophy for Children’ in to our curriculum, in particular we have tailored some of our PSHE and RE lessons to this. The children have produced some fantastic learning throughout this by asking and answering some excellent questions. These lessons are a chance for the children to lead their own learning and engage with detailed dialogue.

General Information:

Just a polite reminder that all reading records need to be in school everyday so we can keep them up to date.

Spellings – New spellings will be given out every Tuesday. Please could you help your children learn these ready for their spelling test the following Tuesday.

Marvellous Me – We are all really excited about the launch of ‘Marvellous Me’ and everyone is working especially hard to earn badges and messages to be sent home. Please keep an eye out and continue to celebrate your child’s learning. Remember to keep sending us high 5s!

Homework – Homework will be set every Friday, to be completed and returned back to school the following Thursday. Please continue to hear your child read on a daily basis and fill in the reading record.

PE – We do indoor P.E on Tuesday and Outdoor Games on Thursday. Please ensure your child has the appropriate kit in school on both these days. As the days are getting colder the children will need winter kit (trainers, jumpers and tracksuit bottoms). We are still going outside for Games and it’s really important we all stay warm.

Stingray Class Worship: 

Just a reminder that Stingrays Class Worship is on Wednesday 22nd March. We look forward to seeing you all there and hope that you enjoy our Mother’s Day celebrations.
