Autumn Term 2015

DeDear Parents and Guardian,

I hope you have all had a very healthy and happy summer, where the time has gone I don't know! I'm incredibly excited about the year to come and looking forward to the experiences and learning we are all going to share.

Through this term the children are going to be centring their learning around the themes of , Autumn. Within this our history will explore events that have taken place during this season and we will be investigating how and why they are celebrated toda . Literacy will be taught not only through work related to our topic but also though our exploration of novels and the work of Roald Dahl as well as The Secret Garden. During science lessons the children will be investigating materials including: properties, changing state and fitness for purpose as well as how sound is made and altered.  While within geography learning we will be concentrating upon the countries and capitals of the U.K.

P.E will take place in the hall and when possible outside therefore, please ensure your child has warm kit available as our weather turns inclement. I will not , however, be taking the children out if the weather is unsuitable. Upon the approach to Christmas we will be getting ready for our production, which is always very exciting ...more information will follow!

As always if you have any quires or need to speak to me then please don't hesitate to do so.

Thank you for your support .

Autumn Term curriculum plan

Dear Adults,

 

In Year 2 we are always encouraging our children to read widely. If you are reading alternative books to our reading scheme then we would really like to hear about it. In the front and back cover of your children's school  diary is a table where the titles of books you and your children are reading can be added. In our reading corner the children have the opportunity  to create a book review, we will be encouraging the children to share with the class their favourite narrative and non narrative books.

We have had an amazing week sharing with you our Christmas play. Thank you to all our wonderful children who have worked so hard;  learning their lines , songs and actions. We hope you enjoyed watching our production as much as we did sharing it with you.
