Welcome to the start of an exciting year of learning in year 2!
We are now into term two and this is a very busy but exciting time for us all in year 2. The children in 2BS earned their first 'Marble Treat' and enjoyed a fantastic trip to the forest school.
This term we will continue to have P.E on Monday's and Thursday's. Earrings will need to be removed or covered and long hair needs to be tied back. A track suit will be needed for outdoor P.E. as the weather gets colder.
Book bags can be returned every day if your child has finished their book.
We are very excited about our Christmas play 'A Magical Journey' and hope that you will be able to come to watch us!
In ICT we are using excel to make simple spread sheets and in RE we are learning about the Jewish festival of Hanukah and the story of Christmas.
This term, we have SAT's. These start on 1st May and last for two weeks. Please make sure your child has plenty of sleep and a good breakfast every morning. Also, please ensure they arrive in school before nine o'clock with a water bottle.
Please do not worry about these assessments. The children have been practising and are very familiar with the format.
In science, we are learning about life processes and habitats.
We will be practising for sports day, so please can they keep their PE kit in school all week.
If the warm weather returns, please ensure that your child has sun tan cream on before they arrive in school and some named cream they can keep in their tray.
This is our last term in Year 2.
We have many exciting events scheduled ahead.
Mexico day is on Monday the 18th June. A letter has been sent to you. We also have Creative Arts week, Sports day and Pirate day.
We are hoping to go to Margate on the train in July. Details will follow.
