Welcome to Year 2
Welcome back to the Summer term. We hope you had a wonderful Easter break.
Our topic this term is ‘Australia’. As part of this topic the children will be learning about the history and geography of Australia. We will be looking at maps, researching animals and creating aboriginal art. If you have any resources, photographs or information about Australia, feel free to send this in to be shared with the class.
In Science we are continuing to build our knowledge on living things and their habitats and plants. We have a very exciting trip planned to Birdworld where we will be able to see different animals and learn all about the habitats in which they live. More information regarding this trip will follow shortly.
This is a very important term so attendance is crucial to the children’s learning. Year 2 SAT teacher assessments will be carried out over this half term (May) so attendance in these weeks is key. In order to prepare for these assessments, continue with home reading and any homework set.
Our library day is Thursday and PE will be on Mondays and Fridays.
As the weather is becoming warmer, please ensure you apply sun cream to your child before school and provide them with a sunhat and water bottle.
Thank you all for your continued support and, as always, please do not hesitate to contact us, via the reading book or office if you have any questions.
Miss Burr, Miss Phipps and Mrs Thomas
