Year 2

   

Year 2 teachers are Miss Brookes and  Miss Blake. Mrs Day and Mrs Heather support in Year 2. Year 2 are collected from the bottom playground by their teacher each morning.  They will be brought out at the end of the day and can only go when an adult is there to collect them.  Please note you must inform school if it is a different adult picking your child up otherwise they will not be allowed to go.

Our PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday, please ensure your child has kit for indoor and outdoor PE at all times.

As the weather gets warmer, please make sure your child has a water bottle in school. These can be kept in your child's classroom, where it is their responsibility to rinse and fill it with fresh water every day. There are water cups in each classroom available to use but in the interest of hygiene, we encourgae children to bring their own water bottle.

If you would like a longer chat with your child's teacher please speak to them and make an appointment for a mutually convenient time.  The end of the day is often better then the start of the day as the teachers need to register their class.

See below for our current topics and examples of our brilliant work.

Connected Learning - Life 100 years ago

 

In Connected Learning we will be learning about life 100 years ago. We will be looking at how life was different 100 years ago and compare it to life today. We will also go back in time and experience life in a school and discover how children dressed, learned and entertained themselves.

 

Science - Materials

In Science we are learning about materials. We will be learning about all the different types of materials and their properties. We will also identify and sort which materials are man-made and which materials are natural. C
