Y2 Mrs Walsh and Mrs Johnson
A big welcome back to you all!!! We hope you have all had a wonderful Summer break and are looking forward to an exciting time in Year 2. This year you are the top of the Foundation Phase and the younger children will be looking to you to show them the expected rules and behaviour of the school and I know you wont let us down!! Your teachers and helpers this year are Mrs Walsh, Mrs Johnson and Mrs Moss and we are all looking forward to a fantastic year with you all - lots of hard work!!!!!!!!
Our first topic this term is 'Happiness' . During this topic we will be developing an understanding of how eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly helps us to have a healthy body. We will be learning to recognise different feelings and what makes us happy as well as learning the importance of friendships and developing positive relationships with others. In this age of technology we will also be learning about how to keep safe on line and to learn SMART tips to keep us safe!!
Our first R.E. topic is 'Beginnings' and we will be looking at new beginnings in our own lives and studying the story of Creation.
Maths homework will be given out on Fridays and will be linked to the work that you have been doing in class that week. This needs to be returned by the following Friday. My maths on line will also be available and your child will have their own password to access extra activities where appropriate. A new bug club book will also be given to your child each week linked to the reading level that they are currently working on in the class.
P.E. is every Friday and your child will need to bring t shirt and shorts in a clearly labelled bag which will stay in school and be sent home at the end of each half term for washing.
