Spring Term 2019

Welcome back after the New Year!

The children have come back enthused after the Christmas break and have got stuck straight back in to their learning. 

Our new topic this term is Skellybones.

Do you have any skills or resources that you would like to share with the children. Please see the class teacher for further information.

Maths in Year 2

Are you ever puzzled by how we support the children with their maths learning? The children have been busy creating examples of what we use in class to solve maths problems. If you would like to know more, come in and ask a member of staff for more information. We are very soon going to be launching an exciting new resource that your child can access at home so keep an eye on the website for further updates.

Library

Every Tuesday, it is year 2's opportunity to visit the school library. Children have an opportunity to change their library books and learn new library skills. So now it's the time to look at home under beds, behind curtains and in bookcases to find that lost library book ready to exchange for a new book to enjoy.

DID YOU KNOW...? Reading your library book at home counts as a read in the reading record. 

P.E

In gymnastics this term, we are looking at how our bodies move and  are looking at how movements can be linked together smoothly. In addition, we are composing a short, simple sequence of two or three body shapes from the straight or tuck family. The children are also enjoying using the apparatus to extend their learning of how their bodies move and how they transition on and off the equipment.
