Welcome to Year 2 and Hedgehogs class.
In the Owls Class, our topic for the Spring term will be ‘Let’s get healthy!’, we will be discovering all about our health and how to look after ourselves; how to get fit, eat well and be happy! We will explore a variety of sports and types of exercises that have evolved over the past, compare them to modern day and have a go at them during P.E lessons! The children will learn about Florence Nightingale and the health care system, they will investigate the importance of being healthy, hygienic and what it would be like to be a nurse. Our topics are integrated across the curriculum, throughout all subjects and in line with Big Writing for English. If you have any interesting artefacts, photos or even experiences your child would like to share which would link to our health, exercise or sports topic, please talk to your child’s teaching staff to arrange bringing them in to school.
For this terms international week, we will be learning all about Germany; their cultures, food, traditions, festivals and language. If you or your child would like to bring in any souvenirs or have any interesting facts, Mrs Howes would love to hear or see them during our international week!
Each week your child’s homework will be to complete 30 minutes of Maths whizz and Reading Eggs which are assessed and monitored weekly. Spellings will be given out at the beginning of each term to be learnt at home and will be assessed at the end of the term. Children will read at least twice a week at school and we ask that they also read at home three times a week in addition to diaries being read and signed each time. This will help your child to receive their reading sticker, ALSO each Friday each class will be completing for the reading trophy in celebration assembly, the more children that read 3 times a week the more chance we have of winning!
If you have any queries in regards to this homework, please don't hesitate to speak to Mrs Howes, or Mrs Jones.
We have PE every Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is kept in school so that they have access to their PE kit at all times and where possible please make sure that a pair of tracksuit bottoms are packed in addition to shorts, in case of winter weather.
If your child is unable to tie their shoelaces, we ask kindly that they have plimsolls with no laces.
Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents. These should be kept in school on your child’s coat peg.
Year twos will be cooking Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure that your child has a labelled container in school each Monday so that they can take home their delicious treats.
If you have any queries, concerns or would like an appointment to see your class teacher,
Mrs Howes will be available each morning on the playground.
