In the words of Kid President, “It’s time to get our learn on, and we’ve got a lot to learn too”. We don’t know it all, but we will go on a learning adventure together because no matter who you are, somebody is learning from you. Everybody is a teacher and everybody is a student.
Steering the ship on our learning adventure are Mrs. Taylor and Mr. Longstaff, supported by the amazing Mrs. Woodward, Mrs. Wilbraham and Mrs. Miah. We see the person that you could become someday, someone who could change the world, but if you want to change the world, you’ve got to know about the world.
During our learning adventure we cover a variety of topics to enthuse and engage the children. Our Topics include:
- Street Detectives
- Land Ahoy!
- Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
- The Scented Garden
Our topics are designed to teach a range of skills and knowledge, covering all aspects of the curriculum. Together we will ensure the Year 2 children reach their full potential. We will aim high together with the children and endeavour to do our very best this year!
Our topic in Year 2 for this term is ‘The Scented Garden’. We will be tiptoeing through the flowers and using our senses to discover blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances, as we plant bulbs and seeds in our own sensory garden. We’ll be careful exploring though, as there are some wild and dangerous things out there as we will discover in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. In English, we will be looking at different genres linked to our topic. We will re-write the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write a non-chronological report about animals. In Maths, we are learning how to tell the time and we will addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in a range of contexts.
If you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to speak to us before or after school.
We welcome communication between home and school. Staff are often available at the start or end of each school day or appointments can be made by contacting the school office.
We have 3 Parents’ Evenings during the year; one in each term. Each meeting is an opportunity to discuss your child’s learning and celebrate their achievements and progress.
The summer term meeting is an opportunity to meet your child’s new teacher for the following year and find out all about their new class and year group ahead of the summer holidays. This helps our parents and children to prepare for these changes and come back in September feeling settled and ready to learn.
