Happy New Year for 2017!
Welcome to Year 2 in 2017.
This term our Topic is an Icy Adventure - where we will research explorers, the Antarctic and the animals that live there. We will explore materials and design outdoor wear so that explorers can survive the harsh weather conditions.
We have an exciting trip planned for Wednesday 1st March leaving school at 12.40pm to the Edward Wilson display at the Cheltenham Museum (1-2.45pm) - we appreciate parent/ guardians help and support with this. We will publish photos in the newsletter.
It will be a busy term as we practice our Spelling, Reading, Writing and Maths in preparation for summer SATs.
Have a good term.
May I take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to all parents throughout the school for all your help and support over my years here at Christ Church. I've had a brilliant time and worked with amazing children- they are a real credit to you. Please stay in touch and I look forward to visiting to see how you are all getting on. Thank you for all your kind words and gifts over the past week too, they really mean a lot.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2017.
Love from Miss Pates.
Welcome to Year 2!
This Autumn term our Topic is called ‘London's Burning!'.
It has a history focus, as we will be learning all about the Great Fire of London. We will be thinking about how it started, what life was like for people in that time and also how it changed the city of London. We will also be finding out about key historical figures and events of the time, as well as learning about modern day fire fighters.
Our class value this term is Reflection: What does it mean to be a good leader? We will be thinking about the qualities of a good leader and who we consider good leaders to be. We will also be learning about Guy Fawkes and whether we consider him to have been a good leader or not.
