Welcome to our new Year 2 class!
This term our topic will be The Lion King. We will be taking inspiration from the film for our writing, learning about animals in science, comparing Africa and England during geography and painting landscapes in art. Our PE lessons on a Monday and Wednesday will see us dancing like the animals and also beginning to play some hockey. In maths this term, we will focus on place value, addition and subtraction to develop our number skills.
For our PE lessons, pupils need to have a full PE kits with trainers and the option of trousers as the weather gets colder. Earrings must be removed ready for our sessions and long hair will need to be tied back for safety.
To support the children's learning, it would be great if parents and guardians could listen to reading at home and sign in their Reading Record to increase reading confidence and help pupils on the way to gaining certificates in the reading challenge. Spelling will also begin to be sent home on a Monday ready for our spelling tests on Fridays.
Myself and Mrs Sheppard look forward to an exciting year ahead!
