Week 7th-11th September 2020
What a wonderful start to year 2, the class is wonderfully settled and working together to be the best we can all be. This week we have been having fun looking at some of God's creations, using a magnifying glass to get a good look. We have been practising mindfulness by appreciating what we can see in the moment rather than rushing around.
Week 14th-18th September 2020
What a great week we have had with year 2! We have been exploring more of the "Here we are" book by Oliver Jeffers - asking big questions about the world and appreciating its beauty. We linked this with our RE focus on beginnings - spending some quality time appreciating the sun on our faces and the breeze in the air!
Week 21st-25th September 2020
Year 2 have been working very hard this week. In Literacy they have learned the story " St George and the dragon" and have created their own hero for next week's story writing.
In PE we have taken up the theme of jousting with plenty of balance and control exercise as well as lunging!
Thank you to those who are listening to your child read regularly - it is one of the main ways that you can support your child's progress in school. What would be really helpful to me is if you could add a comment in the reading record book to let me know how they are getting on. I am also interested in the other books that they are reading at home - if you could pop down the title and a comment about how fluent or expressive they are or any problems they are having (e.g. with a particular sound or word) this helps my overall understanding of their ability, in addition to how they read at school.
Many thanks
