This half term, P.E is on a Tuesday afternoon.
Your child needs to keep their P.E kit in a clearly labelled P.E bag in school every day.
We will send it home at the end of each half term.
They will need:
White t-shirt, black shorts/pants/leggings and a pair of black P.E pumps.
We have a reading programme in school called 'Accelerated Reader'.
Your child will take a quiz on each book they read.
Children in Year 2 have the opportunity to quiz most mornings if they have read their book.
If you read every night...
5 books a week...
39 weeks in a school year...
That is 195 books a year you will read!
You read at least one book every week in Guided Reading...
That makes a total of at least 234 books!
READ, READ, READ!!!
We try our best to change books as often as possible, but some days it may not be possible due to unforeseen circumstances.
It is important that you read with your child every night.
Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned on a Monday morning.
Spellings will be handed out every Monday to be practiced throughout the week at home in preparation for a spelling test on Friday.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This half term in Spring 1, our exciting topic is Bounce!
We will be reading the story of 'The Frog Prince' and the children will be making predictions, writing descriptions and creating their own settings for their own version of the story.
We will be doing lots of art, looking at artists such as Jackson Pollock and in Topic, we will be learning about where different sports originated from around the world.
In science this half term, we will be learning about what it means to be healthy, the importance of exercise and all about germs!
In R.E, our big questions is "Was Jesus a friend to everyone?"
We will be looking at Bible stories written by different disciples that tell us all about how Jesus made friends with different people. We will also be considering ourselves, what makes us a good friend and what we do to ensure that we are a good friend to everyone.
Our core Christian Value this half term is "Perseverance".
