Welcome to Year 2
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year and to welcome you back after a lovely extended Christmas break.
The amazing team working In Apple Class (Year 2) this academic year will be:
Miss Bromberger (class teacher), Miss Bowles (TA), and Mrs Spence (focus provision TA). Please do not hesitate to come and see any of us should you have any queries.
Our topic this half term is ‘Extreme Weather’. Through a series of lively activities, such as creating and filming their own weather forecasts or making their own weather station, children will build knowledge of seasonal and daily weather patterns in the UK. Begin to understand the hot and cold areas of the world as well as developing locational knowledge and early geographical skills. Children will be given the opportunity to experiment with different Art techniques such as printing and painting whilst creating their own seasonal masterpieces. In DT, their skills will be put to the test as we learn how to design, make and evaluate our very own flood-resistant houses.
I would also like to take this opportunity to reinforce the importance of children reading for at least 20 minutes every evening. Reading is vital for your child’s success and it helps enormously in their writing. Either myself or another adult in the class will be reading with your child weekly and we will be rewarding those children who read five or more times a week at home every half term. Don’t forget to log onto TT Rock Stars. A fun way of learning your times tables! Please click the link in the sidebar to access the website, there is also a free app available to download.
Finally, it is important that we all come prepare for school: wearing correct school uniform, bringing reading folders, reading diaries and books every day. PE will take place every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that children have their PE kits in school from Monday through till Friday, as PE sessions may take place during none scheduled days. Thank you to all of those who bring tape to cover any earrings.
I look forward to an exciting term ahead!
