 We have had a very successful first half term in Year 2. The children have risen to the challenge of Year 2 and they continue to impress us with their efforts on a daily basis. This half term we are continuing our Heroes work, moving away from superheroes and looking more at everyday heroes. As a Wow starter week for this, we have had visitors from the fire service, police and a first responder. The children were brilliant when it came up to asking questions to our visitors and we have lots of interesting information to base our writing on this half term. The children have worked hard to create our wreaths of poppies using the collage skills that we developed last half term. We are looking forward to bringing these up to the memorial in Northam on Friday for our service.

In maths this term, we are working on the four operations. We have been working on multiplication for the last two weeks and will be moving on to division soon. In English we will be developing our understanding of non fiction texts. We have looked at a variety of information texts and are working through the features, discussing the impact of these and how we can use them in our own writing. In PE, the Skylarks have had their first swimming lessons and they did brilliantly! This term the Sandpipers will be doing gymnastics and outdoor invasion games. Please continue to make sure that your child has a named PE kit in school, including warm trousers!
