Greenaway Class is our Year 2 Class.  

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well here we are in the children’s last term of Year 2. Doesn’t time fly? I hope you have had a lovely Easter break despite the wet weather and the children are raring to go! This term promises to be a busy one! We begin the summer term with a science week all about ‘Growing Plants’. The children have enjoyed exploring plants around our school and finding out about the different parts of a plant. This has led to some fantastic independent writing about plants this week. Well done Greenaway Class! We have also enjoyed setting up an investigation to find out whether seeds can germinate without water or without light. The children have made some great predictions and had fun planting their own runner bean. We are now looking forward to observing our bean seed over time to see if our predictions are correct.

Next week we will introduce our topic for this term ‘Castles and Dragons’. If you have any books at home linked to our topic we would love you to send them in so that we can share them with the class. We promise to take good care of them until the end of our topic. We begin by exploring the question ‘Why were castles first built in England and what were they like?’ We will spend our story time sessions listening to a range of non-fiction books about castles and begin with the chapter book ‘The Battle of Hastings’ by Gillian Clement. We are also hoping to visit Restormel Castle this term to explore the remains of a Motte and Bailey Castle. Did you know that this was the first type of castle to be built in England after William the Conqueror became King of England in 1066?

Termly Challenge

Each term we would like the children to contribute towards the class topic. This term we would like the children to use recycled materials to make either a castle or dragon. It would be nice to have these in just after half term, (or earlier if you would prefer). Thank you! 

Here is an outline of the things that happen every week:

Monday - Homework and spellings are given out. 

Monday - PE with Mr Rickard and computing with Mr Hawtin.     

Tuesday - Visit to the library to choose a new book.                                       

Friday - Active mile, spelling test, maths homework returned. PE with Mrs Cudmore. 

Please can the children bring in a named water bottle each day. Please remember to send your child's PE kit into school in a named carrier bag ready for their PE lessons on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Don’t forget to send your child to school wearing their trainers and jogging bottoms on a Friday ready for our active mile in the morning.

With very best wishes,

Mrs Cudmore
