Welcome to our Year 2 website page.
Adults in class are: Mrs Parker, Mrs Slee, Mrs Jaynes and Miss Freer.
Our first topic this year is: Everyday Heroes.
In English, we will be learning and making links between different Superhero texts, and then we will write our own stories based on Matt Carr's 'Superbat'. We will be thinking about what it means to be healthy, and we will be designing our own workouts to improve our fitness.
In Topic, we will be looking at how Florence Nightingale improved hospitals in Scutari, and then we will compare her with other modern day 'Everyday Heroes'.
Our Role Play area began the year as a Doctor's Surgery, but has already changed to a Superhero City at the children's request!
We have lots of exciting things planned for this term, and are looking forward to our visit from a real doctor, a workshop with Florence Nightingale and a trip to Cheltenham Literature Festival.
Reading and Spellings
Reading records need to be brought into school daily so that we can record your child's reading.
Spellings are set on Monday and they will be tested on a Friday.
Your child will have one copy of spellings to practice at home and one for in school.
Homework is due in on a Monday, where it will be marked and filed.
Please remind your children that reading folders go in the blue box when they need to be changed and homework folders are placed in the yellow box.
Also, please make sure that important letters are handed to an adult or taken to the office, rather than left in book bags.
If you have any questions, please just ask.
Please keep checking the page for pictures and updates.
