Year 2

Update for Week beginning : 17/7/17

A huge congratulations to all children in Sharks and Stingrays Class for a fantastic Year! We have thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 2 this year and wish everyone the best of luck for starting their new learning journey in Year 3.

We hope you have a restful and well deserved Summer Holiday!!

English and Maths information:

This week we have written a recount of our school trip to the Sea Life Adventure Park and completed some addition, subtraction and multiplication Maths games.

Other curriculum news:

WE had such a wonderful day at Weymouth Sea Life Park. The children got to explore all the different learning zones with a huge range of sea creatures to see. We stopped for a picnic on the grass and finished of the day at the splash zone and obstacle course. It is always a good sign of a fun day out when half the children fall asleep on the way home!

A big thank you to all our helpers, it wouldn’t have been possible without you.

Another thank you to everyone who attended our ‘Under the Sea’ project outcome. The children were delighted and so proud to show you all their hard work. The powerpoint presentations they produced were incredible and full of information facts that they’ve learnt over the period of this half term.


General Information:

Marvellous Me – We are continuing to use ‘Marvellous Me’ to send out special awards and announcing our ‘super spellers’. 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 –  Thank you for all the amazing information displays and leaflets about some of our favourite under the sea creatures! We have loved presenting them and learning lots of new facts.

There won’t be any homework set over the summer holidays, however it would hugely benefit your child to continue hearing them read and practise any maths and writing that you can.

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.

General – Please ensure your child brings in to school a named water bottle everyday. The weather is very warm at the moment and it is really important that all children and drink lots throughout the day.
