Chimps - Year 2



Welcome to Chimps class!


My name is Miss Collins and I am very excited to be teaching Chimps this year. I can’t wait for our learning to get started!


Our topic for the Autumn term is the Great Fire of London, with our focus question being ‘Fire: friend or foe?’ We have a variety of exciting texts we will be focusing on in English including ‘Toby and the Great Fire of London.’


In Maths we will be continuing our learning through the use of Maths No Problem. We will begin by focusing on our knowledge of numbers and their value.  


During Science this term, we will be learning all about Super Scientists.


In Geography we will be learning about Peterborough in relation to London.


In Art, Chimps will be creating scenes from the Great Fire of London using a range of media.  


We will continue to learn Spanish in Miss Donkin’s Spanish assemblies each week.


Useful information


Mrs. Naylor and Miss West are our teaching assistants.


PE is on a Monday (this could change at any time so please ensure kits are in school every day). Please ensure kits are clearly named.


We encourage children to read regularly and children will receive a reading raffle ticket for reading 5 times a week. Children should record their reading in their reading record daily. We ask that you sign the reading record weekly to show that you have acknowledged your child has read. Children should bring their reading record book into school every day. Thank you.


Please remember your water bottles every day as our classroom does get very warm. Please make sure the water bottle is clearly named and is only filled with water or squash. 


Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and is due in on Tuesdays. Please encourage your child to do the challenge questions set. If they wish, they may attend the weekly homework club to complete their homework.


Children will be lining up in the morning outside Chimps door and will be going in to the classroom to complete their morning activity at 8.50am. They will be released from the same place at the end of the day.


We have a fun and busy term ahead and I’m super excited to get started.


Please feel free to speak to me for any further information.
