Welcome to Year 2!
Our topic this term is
'Knights of the Round Table'
Welcome to Year 2! The children have had a great first week back after the holidays. They have been getting used to their new classrooms, friends and adults but they have also had lots of surprises, such as finding a castle in the hall! The children are enjoying Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and have painted pictures of their favourite characters from the story. We made a cauldron from clay, just like the Witch in the story, and then used it to make potions later on in the week.
They are all excited about their trip to Portchester Castle!
Things to remember:
- Spellings will be checked once a week. The Superhero / Shield they know will be written in their Reading Records so you can practice the next one.
- PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days.
- Please make sure that your child's PE kit and school clothes are clearly named. It makes changing time a lot easier when somebody can't find their jumper! Thank you.
- Remember that Olaf gets to go to the class that does the most reading at home each week! Please read with your child a little each night and write it in their yellow reading record. If you read the story to them still write it in the reading records as they should be listening and you can ask them questions.
