The children are showing great enthusiam about our Australia topic which is fantastic!
Next week, in groups they are going to be creating a poster about an area in Australia - your child has been told whether they will be looking at :
- The Great Barrier Reef
It would be wonderful if your child could find out a fact (or two or three!) about the area they will be researching and bring their new found knowledge into school to share with their group, and add to their poster.
Happy New Year!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to return for an exciting Spring Term in Year 2!
Attached is the curriculum map for this term. Our new topic is Australia.
On Monday 2nd December Sycamore Class will have Forest Schools. Please make sure that your child has their correct clothing.
This week was the last week of homework and spelling before Christmas.
However, Times tables Rock Stars, Math Salamander and reading can continue during December.
Costumes need to be brought into school on Monday 2nd December.
Please could all library books and non-fiction books be returned to school during the week beginning 9th December 2019.
Next week (30th September onwards) we will be asking the children to bring in some food packaging of foods they have eaten at home. This is for a sorting activity so ideally we would like some cereal boxes, empty pasta packets, dairy packaging, fruit and vegetables wrappers, biscuits and treats wrappers or boxes of frozen meat products such as fish fingers or breaded chicken. These will need to be clean please.
We would also encourage you and your child to have a look at the foods in your cupboards at home and look for the country of origin. Do the children know where that country is?
We will be having our first Forest Schools session on Monday 16th September so please send wellies/ a change of shoes into school in a named carrier bag. The bag will hang on their peg in the cloakroom.
The children may decorate the cover of their homework book which was sent home today. When it is full of homework please bring it into school and you can have a bigger book with more pages.
We are making stone soup tomorrow (Tuesday 10th September). We are requesting that each child brings in one vegetable (or portion) to add to our soup. Thank you.
We are ready to start a new term and our topic until half term is 'Food Glorious Food!'
We will be starting library this week. The children will choose a book from our school library and keep it until week beginning 23.9.19. The books should be brought into school and placed in the yellow box in the classroom.
Library weeks will then be 7.10.19, 28.10.19, 11.11.19, 25.11.19 and 9.12.19.
P.E. lessons are on a Wednesday and Thursday every week so please make sure that P.E. kits are in school.
I would like to remind you to name ALL of your child's possessions including their water bottle and shoes! It saves a great deal of time and confusion for the children and the staff.
