Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
This half term our topic has been Towers, Tunnels and Turrets! We have learnt about the different parts of a castle and what life was like in a castle. In Literacy, we wrote our own version of 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. We also wrote a letter of complaint to the Board of Fairytales about being allowed to cross a bridge! We have researched and learnt amazing facts about famous structures around the world such as Stonehenge, the Empire State Building and the Pyramids of Giza. In Geography we plotted the famous structures on a world map and learnt the difference between a human feature and a physical feature.
On Monday 16th October 2017, Year 2 took part in an exciting castle workshop! We found out about life in a castle. We looked at how they made food and had the opportunity to make butter from scratch! We also dressed up in medieval outfits and tried on a knight's armour!
Take a look at our pictures below.
We have three classes in Year 2:
Lime Class, Red Class and Purple Class
They will be supported and guided through this important year by:
All working together to help the children to achieve their full potential and to make good progress.
Miss Bogue is our Year Group Leader.
If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues
We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.
We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.
We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
In Year 2 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.
We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy!
In addition all children should continue to read at home, at least five times a week with an adult and then have their reading records signed.
Children should have their reading records and reading books in school every day, but reading records will be checked by one of the Y2 team once a week.
