Welcome to Year 2
Hello and welcome to the Year 2 page. I am your teacher, Mrs Coates and your teaching assistant is Mrs Freeman.
Our work this half term will be based around the text 'one day on our blue planet in the savannah'
Our texts links really well with our science this half term where we will be looking animals including humans. Also in geography we will be learning about Africa. We will be looking at Kenya and the Maasai tribe and exploring similarities and differences of the tribe with how we live.
Continuing on the African theme, in art we will be exploring pattern through a range of media.The children will also be making Maasai jewellery and African
masks. In Design Technology, we will be designing, creating and evaluating an African drum.
Homework is set on a Tuesday and should be returned to school the following Monday. Children who complete their homework receive 5 Dojo points.
Reading Books are sent home on a regular basis. Children who manage to read at home can move their 'reading rockets' in class and gain additional Dojo points. Each time the children's rockets reach 20 books read, they can chose a prize.
PE takes place weekly on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child has their PE kit available in school - including pumps / trainers.
Outdoor Activities - please ensure your child has a suitable coat and wellies available in school.
