To find out more about Anthony Browne and some of his books visit this website

These are just some of the books which we read and look at in school

 

 

 

Our topics this term are:

 

Science

In Science we will be looking at:

· Animals including humans

During our lessons we will provide
children opportunities to develop an understanding of what an animal (including humans) need to survive and how
humans can keep healthy.  The children will have some opportunities to explore and test concepts in everyday contexts. We are particularly going to be focusing on reinforcing the correct Science
vocabulary in these sessions  e.g. water, food, shelter, air, healthy, balanced.

 

Geography - Oceans and Continents

 

Art - Making totem poles

 

Design Technology -  Making a pizza

 

Computing - text and graphics and programming.

 

PHSE  - Physical health and wellbeing

What keeps me healthy?

 

 

P.E.

Please send your child’s P.E. kit into school on Monday and Friday.

We would like to remind you that the school’s PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and a dark coloured track suit. Your child will also need suitable outside trainers. All of this MUST BE CLEARLY LABELLED with your child’s name and class.

 

On a Monday the children will be taught by Mr Manning our sports coach and on a Friday by their class teacher.

 

Reading Books

As in Year One your child will bring home reading books every week.  Reading records will be sent home for you to record any comments. Book bags and books need to be brought into school on a Monday each week, so we can change them and return them to you the following day. In school, your child has a different reading record book where the teacher can record their comments and chat to the children about their targets.   

Year 2 had an AMAZING morning doing Forest Schools in the woods. They built wood towers, they made clay woodland creatures, camouflaged their faces and hands and even covered Mrs Wighton in an umbrella of leaves!

Year 2 have started 'circuit training' in PE. There were many different activities to choose from and they all enjoyed giving everything a go!

DT day in 2CW - Making pizzas!
