Friday 16th July,
Good afternoon my lovely Year 2s and parents,
Well, what an extraordinary few days! I am so, so sad that we can't be at school for our last three fun days in Year 2. Coronavirus has taken us by surprise again and it seems to be the same in many primary schools, unfortunately. Luckily, we have finished all of our work for the year, so Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are all about enjoying the last three days of the school year. I will do my best to make things as easy and enjoyable as possible for you So, have a lovely sunny weekend at home and keep an eye on this page.
Books and Reports
All of your books are ready (in bags). The reports will also be in the bags, so please collect them, from Monday, after school (or arrange for someone to collect them for you). The bags are heavy so it just shows how hard everyone has worked, both at home and at school What a class of superstars!

In Year 2, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary and you should use it to record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday. At the beginning of each half term, children will receive a list of spellings, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Thursday.
P.E. and Forest School
Year 2 will have Multi-skills every Monday. P.E. will continue every Wednesday until 12th May. Children will need to wear their P.E. kit to school every Monday and Wednesday. Kit includes: school P.E. t-shirt, school jumper/cardigan, tracksuit bottoms or shorts and trainers. Wednesday P.E. will start the week beginning 15th March.
Year 2 will have Forest school sessions on a Wednesday afternoon in the Summer Term (starting on Wednesday 19th May). The children should come to school in their Forest School clothes every Wednesday. Forest School clothes include: normal school t-shirt & jumper/cardigan, tracksuit bottoms or leggings, a coat and old trainers or wellies.

Take a look at the photos from our first Forest School session of 2021! We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed exploring the outdoor space. We worked collaboratively on different projects including: den building, filling our bug home - 'Bugingham Palace', balancing on logs, making a clay igloo as well as making tasty treats like mint choc chip ice cream and salads Lots of very happy children all working and learning together, despite the wet and wild weather.
Here are some photos from our visit to the Quinton Allotments on 11th May. Our topic is all about plants, so it was a perfect opportunity to inspire the children to start 'growing their own'. Since our visit, lots of the children have told us all about the seeds and bulbs that they have planted at home. We are busy growing some flowers and vegetables at school too. We will visit the allotments again later in the year to see how everything has grown.
