We have lots of fantastic and fun learning to look forward to over the next year in Year 2. Our topics will be: 'The Great Fire of London'with a history focus learning about 17th Century London and the events of the Great Fire; 'Let's Go To China' with a geography focus learning about a contrasting location in the world; 'The Titanic' with a history focus learning about what was the Titanic, why did it sink and what different types of passengers there were; 'History's Makers & Shakers' with a history focus learning about inventors and their inventions and explorers. Please see the Learning Map below for detail about our learning in the Autumn term.
Just like last year we will enjoy Forest School sessions (in Term 3) and PE remains on THURSDAYS although it is second best, me, teaching the lessons. The lessons will be outdoors as much as possible so it is vital that your child has their outdoor PE kit in school every week please.
LIBRARY: our sessions remain on MONDAYS just like in year 1. This is a lovely opportunity for your child to borrow any book from our KS1 library. They must return their book before they can borrow a new one. Unfortunately, quite a few children are regularly forgetting their books. Some books have yet to be returned from when they were borrowed at the start of September! Please encourage your child to remember to bring their book every Monday otherwise I will have to review whether we continue with these sessions or not. Many thanks for your help.
Helping in school
Do you have a spare couple of hours a week that you could regularly volunteer to listen to readers with our class? Please let me know if you feel you could do this and we will see about sorting a DBS check for you. It would be wonderful if you could.
