Welcome to Year 2

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Year 2! We hope you all had a fantastic break and the children are raring to go! We will begin the new term with ‘Friendship Fortnight’ which will focus on reconnecting with one another, settling in and establishing new routines before starting our main topic for the term—London. During this topic we learn about London today and identify the key landmarks before jumping back in time to learn about London in the past and The Great Fire of London. This is a fantastic topic that all the children thoroughly enjoy. 

In Year 2 the children are taught by Mrs Cudmore on a Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Cowles on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Mably is our teaching assistant.

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

Monday      Homework and spellings given out. PE with Mrs Cudmore                                                           

Friday          Spelling test, maths homework returned. PE with Mrs Cowles 

Please can the children bring in a named water bottle each day and come to school dressed in their PE kits on Mondays and Fridays? As the children will be in their PE kit all day please make sure that they are dressed appropriately for the weather. Your child may wear plain dark leggings or jogging bottoms on these days.

Each term we would like the children to contribute towards the class topic. This term we would like them to begin researching The Great Fire of London at home.  They can present this information in any way they wish, e.g. make a poster, create a book, use the Book Creator app on the iPad, email us etc. It would be nice to have these in just  after half term. Thank you for your support!

If you have any further questions or queries please don't hesitate to ask.

We look forward to a happy and enjoyable Autumn Term (before we know it ... it'll be Christmas)!   

Thank you for your support. It really is appreciated.

With very best wishes,  

Louisa Cudmore and Sarah Cowles (Class Teachers)
