We are already finishing our first week of this short half term and are enjoying our new theme of ‘Castle Chaos.’
Please see our school website HERE for the curriculum overview.
Just a few reminders…
All of Year 2 change their library books on a Tuesday.
Please ensure that children have their P.E. kit at school throughout the week and don’t forget to name any new items and check that existing items are still clearly labelled. It may also be worth checking that plimsolls fit!
As it is winter please also ensure that hats, gloves and scarves are named too.
The end of Key Stage One Tests and Assessments will take place during May. During the whole of this term, the children will be working very hard so every day will be important to them. There will be a SATs information meeting for parents later on in March/April so any questions or concerns can be raised then.
We have had a really good response to the homework tasks set during the autumn term. It is noticeable that children who regularly carry out homework tasks are transferring their knowledge to their class work. Thank you for all your hard work and commitment. We will continue to set homework as before on a Friday ideally to be completed for the following Friday. We will also still be sending out weekly spellings from this week linked to the Year 2 curriculum. These will be stuck in the back of your child’s home/school book and we will give your child the opportunity to show their knowledge of these spellings on the following Friday.
Keep reading with your child as much as possible whether it be a comic, information book, story book or annual. Don’t forget to choose an extra book on a Wednesday morning before school from the lighthouse room if wished.
Next half term’s theme will follow on from Castle Chaos and feature Dens and Dwellings. Linked to this theme we have arranged an exciting visit to The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum at Singleton on Tuesday 12th March. Look out for a letter very soon.
Here’s to a fun filled and eventful rest of the term!
Best Wishes from,
Mrs Summers, Mrs Pinhorne, Mrs Cryer and Mrs Curthoys Year 2 Team
