Welcome To Year 2



Time flies when you’re having fun!

I cannot believe we are now into the summer term!

This academic year so far has been crammed with many rich learning opportunities. In the first term alone, the children have enjoyed watching a professional live drama performance, listening and joining in with live music through the Pop Art Project, a visit from the author E R Reilly, as well as several visits to church for our Harvest and Christmas celebrations. We enjoyed a week of activities for diversity week and the children were taught several lessons by our School House Captains and their teams. Lessons included thought provoking debates, games and role-play all on a diversity theme.

Last term, we enjoyed an African Dance workshop led by a professional dance teacher, designed and made African masks and learnt lots of interesting African facts! We enjoyed a trip to Chester Zoo to support our learning about African animals and this has enabled us to produce some amazing information and recount writing!

Our Easter celebrations included a trip to church which meant we were able to consolidate and develop our understanding of the Easter story. We were lucky to have been part of an Easter Experience led by year 5. The children thoroughly enjoyed being taught by their peers, as they moved around each station learning about the key events of this important Christian festival.

In science, we started to grow bulbs and plants and we are observing them grow over time. We have set up comparative tests and so far have found out that seeds need water to grow but most do not need light.

For Fairtrade fortnight, the children enjoyed creating posters to support this event and they have learnt what it means to pay a fair price.

The summer term class newsletter is now attached and this will give you more information of what’s planned for our final term. Opportunities include enjoying a weekly singing lesson with a qualified singing teacher and of course our highlight of the year, our Beeston Residential! While we are there, we will enjoy a trip to the famous Beeston Castle, as well as a visit to the Candle Workshop. More information will be given at our information evening. I will update this page with photographs, as soon as we return!
What an exciting term we have ahead of us!
Forest School dates are now confirmed and these can be found under the forest school class page. The children are benefitting immensely from these sessions, as they develop their self-esteem and confidence, as well as learning to love and respect their outdoor environment.

As always, I will keep you fully updated of what’s going on in class, via our weekly homework letter. Don’t forget drop-in sessions continue to be available on Mondays, between 3.15pm and 3.45pm, for you to discuss with me any concerns you may have. You can also arrange a time to speak to myself on the phone or I am able to offer a meeting at a later time, by prior arrangement.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Edwards
