A very warm welcome back after what we hope was a relaxing half term for everyone. We can’t wait to hear all about what you got up to over your break!
Summer 2 Term Topic 'Super Humans'
This term we will be learning all about some super humans, including ourselves! In History we will compare the lives of Mae Jemison, Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. In Art we will look at Paul Cezanne and try to emulate his art work on landscapes. We will also look at being super ourselves. In Science we will look at our 5 senses and what keeps us fit and healthy, as well as making a healthy snack in DT. We will also look at Space in Music and a unit called Musical Me!
Reading in Year 2
As usual your child will be bringing home new reading books once a week which will then be changed weekly. Your child must read at home at least five times a week to earn a reading point. Please record that you have done so in their yellow reading record to evidence this. Many children in Year 2 are close to receiving their next reading award and some are even already wearing their reading badges with pride! Please can you make sure your reading books are brought into school every day so we can add up their reading points.
PE this term
This half term P.E. will take place on a Thursday afternoon and will be run by Mrs Begum and Mr Wood. Bring your child to school in full P.E. kit on Thursdays, appropriately dressed for the season (please check the forecast!). The children will wear their kit all day so no need for a change of clothes.
Items to bring in to school
Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school at all times. Please make sure all items are named (especially jumpers, hats/gloves etc) as unnamed items cannot be returned to their rightful owners. We always have a lot of unnamed and thus unclaimed jumpers, especially as the weather improves in the warmer months when children take off their jumpers in the playground. Please also ensure that toys and belongings from home are not brought into school as these cause upset to the children if they are lost or broken and can also disrupt their learning.
Fruit and Milk
Your child will be offered fresh fruit/veg every day at break/snack time. This is free of charge. You also have the option to order a daily carton of milk for your child via the www.coolmilk.com website.
Thank you for your cooperation and support! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Autumn Term Topic Launch
What an exciting first week we had in Year 2! A dragon came to visit our school and is setting us challenges to complete. We need to earn keys to unlock a king from an evil spell and then he will throw us a royal banquet. So far to earn keys we have: - designed and made a new throne for the king on our DT day, learnt about castles and how they were defended and what a poignant time it was to look in detail at some significant monarchs from history. Mrs Begum and Mrs Stancombe are very proud of how all the children have settled in to Year 2. They really are shining in all that they do!
