- About Us
Over the past few weeks we have been focusing on measurement and time. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the practical lessons and have now learnt how to properly use a ruler and measure using cm and m and can also tell the time to the hour and half past.
We will be starting our Tudor build this week so can you please bring in any unwanted boxes and material in to school.
Secret Agent Training will be continuing through to next week. We will be having a celebration event on the afternoon of Thursday 23rd May. Any food donations would be greatly appreciated :-)
Thank you to all who attended our reading afternoon. It was lovely to see so many family members attend and read with your children. The children loved reading their library books to you and we hope you can see the brilliant progress the children have made since the beginning of Year 2.
Please come and join us on Tuesday 30th April from 2:30pm to celebrate reading in school. We will have coffee and cake available to purchase kindly supplied by Lidl then you can sit in comfort and listen to your child read. We hope you can join us :-)
It has been an exciting week in Year 2 this week. On Tuesday we had our rewards day which was a session on the climbing wall. The children were so brave and resilient during this, and they showed real determination to try to get a little bit higher each time.
We have also had a visit to the fire station this week. At the fire station, the children learnt some new information about 'The Great Fire of London' and were able to share everything they had learnt in school. We looked at the uniform of a fire fighter and the importance of each part. Then we went outside and had a go at using the fire hose.
We would like to say thank you for a very hard working term. We hope you all have a lovely Easter.
Well done for all of the fantastic costumes on World Book Day. The chosen winners in Year 2 were Brodie, Seth and Harriet.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is our Commonwealth Day. It will begin at 1pm, and there will be a range of activities to take part in. The children will also perform a dance inspired by a country within the commonwealth.
The children will be visiting Crook library on Monday 18th March to listen to a story and change their library books.
Star of the Week last week was awarded to Leah, challenge awards were awarded to Max and Evie, and the year group Dojo Champ was awarded to Leah.
Our new topic for the rest of our school year is, 'The Great Fire of London'. To start our topic off, Mr Askew took us outside onto the school field to teach us all about fire safety. We then had the opportunity to roast a marshmallow. They were delicious! We are excited to learn all about our new topic, and we have already learnt that there are a few experts among us.
On Thursday it is World Book Day. We have lots of exciting activities planned for the day. Please remember that the children can get dressed up.
Next week Mrs Blackett will be joining us as a teacher working in both classes.
If you haven't already, please make sure you sign up for parents evening.
