Year 2 - Astronauts

Summer Term

Welcome back everyone.

 

As you all know, Mrs Moody is now at home eagerly awaiting the birth of her little one and I am really excited to be your new teacher. Unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to come into class before we had to finish school as was originally planned. During the holidays, I have had several telephone conversations with Mrs Moody and she has told me all about you and how lucky I am to be joining the Astronauts' class. It is unfortunate that we are not yet going to be able to meet in person but I will be here along with Mrs Ashworth to make sure you continue to work hard and feel happy. I am hoping that we can get to know each other by sending videos on Seesaw. As a parent myself, my daughter Eve attended St Paul's until last summer, I understand how difficult it is to home school your child. If I can help in anyway, please do not hesitate to get in touch either via school or on Seesaw. Please be assured that only the designated teachers can read any messages sent via Seesaw. Since lockdown, I have been able to see all your work on Seesaw and I look forward to receiving some videos telling me all about yourself.

 

Take care and stay safe.

Year 2 Astronauts

 

Below are some general reminders and some information that will be of use during the year.

 

School starts at 8:50am and the register is taken at 8:55am. Please ensure your child arrives before this time. School finishes at 3:30pm and you may pick your child up from the Year 2 classroom. 

Homework

Children will receive their spellings on a Friday afternoon and will be tested on these the following Friday. We ask you don’t return the spelling sheets but still use these to practise a few each night with your child. In addition to spellings and daily reading, your child will also bring home timetables facts or similar to learn for a test the following Friday.

Reading

We cannot emphasise how important it is to read with your child daily and discuss the text. We ask you to do this little and often and recommend ten minutes a night. Please sign your child’s reading diary indicating the book has been read and may be ready for changing.

PE

Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school. Our PE lessons will be on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons this year, although these times are sometimes subject to change at short notice. Children wearing earrings in school on these days must be able to remove them independently or they will not be able to take part. Please also ensure children with long hair have it tied up for these days.

Other useful information

Please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled as things can easily get misplaced. Please ensure your child wears a warm, waterproof coat and sensible shoes. Please ensure your child has a suitable water bottle as we encourage children to keep hydrated throughout the day. Fresh fruit is provided for all KS1 children during morning and afternoon break. 

 

We thank-you for your continued support and will do our best to make sure this year is a happy, enjoyable and successful year for your child as they move through Year 2. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to pop in at the end of the school day or leave a message via the school office.

We enjoyed walking around the school grounds today to find micro habitats during our Science lesson.

Our new unit of work in History is the Great Fire of London. The children made their own houses then we went into forest school and recreated the Great Fire of London! It was fantastic to see the children so enthused and they already can't wait to learn more about it!

Have a look at all the exciting things we will be learning about this half term!

We are reading 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' and 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Road Dahl this half term

The children enjoyed a practical Science lesson this week to find out if materials could change shape by twisting, stretching, bending and squashing.

The children did an amazing job narrating for the Nativity. We are so proud of all of them!

The fire and rescue service came into school to talk to us about fire safety. They told us how to escape safely from a house if there is a fire and we got to role play this to make sure we understood! The children all listened really carefully and asked lots of super questions.

The children enjoyed going on the Life Education Bus. This year we discussed feelings and how we can be good friends.

In Art we have been learning about the artist Keith Haring. The children enjoyed creating their own movements and drawing around each other. They looked just like Keith Haring's pieces of art!
