Week ending 11th January 2019:

Welcome to Term 3 and Happy New Year! We have had a busy first week back and the children have been on wonderful form. We started our new topic 'Boat Building' and have enjoyed exploring where boats may travel using Google Earth. Both classes enjoyed learning our new focus text and have been busy making up actions to help recall the key language, ready for their own writing next week.

Thank you to all those who acted quickly to get Forest School clothes ready on Tuesday morning. We are sorry it was a little last minute - it took us all by surprise!

Next week, we will be starting to plan and write our own stories, based on the structure of our shared text 'The Door in the Mountain'. It has captured our imaginations already, so this should be an exciting next step. In Maths, we will be using known number facts to complete speedy calculations. This will involve using number bonds to 10/20 to help add numbers mentally -

e.g. 9 + 5 =  9 +1 + 4 =  14

In future topic sessions, the children will need a shoe box - if you have any at home, please could you keep hold of them, rather than putting them in the recycling. Thank you!

PE will continue to take place outside on Tuesdays and possibly Thursdays. Please send your children with appropriate clothing for the inevitable cold weather, with jogging bottoms, jumpers and coats! 

The Year 2 team.
