Happy New Year! We hope you all had a fantastic break and the children are raring to go! This term promises to be a busy one! The children are already getting excited about their new topic ‘Castles and Dragons’ and it has been lovely to see some pictures and books of castles already being brought into school. If you have any books at home linked to our topic of Castles or the Battle of Hastings 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 have a trip booked to visit the Recycling Centre in Bodmin on Friday 20th March to support our science work (a letter will be sent out with further information nearer the time). We also plan to end our topic with an exciting trip to Restormel Castle. This will take place at the beginning of April when the castle opens to the public. Again details will be sent out nearer the time.
We hope you find the following information useful, and it gives you an insight into the teaching and learning that will take place in Year 2 during the Spring Term (although we are sure some things may change as we go along).
Mrs Cudmore will continue to teach the class on a Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Cowles will teach on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Mably is our full time teaching assistant and we look forward to welcoming Mr Rickard back to our team after the half term break.
Here is an outline of the things that happen every week:
Monday Homework and spellings given out. PE with Mrs Cudmore
Thursday P.E with Mrs Cowles.
Friday Spelling test, maths homework returned and library book changed.
Don’t forget our Active mile every Friday morning! Remember to come to school in your trainers and jogging bottoms on this day.
Please can the children bring in a named water bottle each day and have PE kits on Mondays and Thursdays? Thank you.
Each term we would also like the children to contribute towards the class topic. This half 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!
We will be holding a workshop to give you further information about the KS1 SATs on Thursday 26th March at 2.30pm.
Please do pop in and speak to us if you have any questions.
