Ahoy there shipmates! This half term our topic is Land Ahoy! In Year 2 we will be learning about famous pirates such as Blackbeard and sea explorers such as Captain James Cook! In Geography we will be using our map skills to identify the continents and some countries of the world. In History we will be learning about the tragic history of the Titanic and write an information book about it. In Science we will be finding out about lighthouses and using simple circuits.
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.
