Welcome to Year 2 September 2020
Welcome to our Year 2 Class page!
Wow! What a brilliant start we have made to the year! All the children have settled in well and are making good progress. This half term we will be looking at famous events that have happened in the past. In particular, we will be focusing on 'The Great Fire of London.' This will involve looking at:
- Where and when the great fire began
- Why the fire spread so easily
- Looking at Samuel Pepys diary
- How London was built
Following on from our topic work, we will be designing and building 2D Tudor houses. We will also be developing our observational skills by drawing St Paul's Cathedral during the Great Fire of London. We will use a range of media including charcoal, oil pastels and chalk.
This half term the children will have Gymnastics on a Monday and PE on a Tuesday. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, children will be required to leave their PE kit in school for the full half term. Please put the kit in a clearly labelled plastic bag.
It is really important that you read with your child as often as possible. Reading books will be sent home and must be returned to school each day in the plastic wallet provided. The children will be heard to read once a week and then their book will be changed. Please complete the reading record diary to show your child has read their book and is ready for a new one.
For this half term, homework will be set via Seesaw on Wednesday and will include spellings, Numbots and Lexia.
If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw or Dojo and we will reply as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs E Willcox (Class Teacher) and Mrs J Turner (Teaching Assistant)
