Towers, Tunnels & Turrets!
Our topic next half term is Towers, Tunnels & Turrets! We will be reading The Tunnel by Anthony Browne and we are planning a visit to explore Windsor Castle. During curriculum week we will be exploring castles and finding out about all about them, we will use this new knowledge to then build our own castles out of boxes and tubes. Then we are going to explore how to build a strong bridge, what are the best building materials and how can we make our own bridges stronger.
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.
Mrs Harris 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
Children should have their homework journal in school everyday. This will be checked by a school adult every week.
