Welcome to Lemurs!

 

I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term in Year 2 with you all! We have some exciting topics this year and I am excited for you to learn about the Great Fire of London.

 

In English, we will be looking at the book Troll Swap, we will be using predictions, role play and class discussions to allow us to understand the key features of the text. We will then use our knowledge to write our own narrative using the Troll Swap as a model.

 

In Maths, we will be studying place value which will allow us to secure our knowledge of numbers to 100. We will be able to partition numbers, estimate numbers on a number line and order objects.

 

PE will be on a Monday. Please send your child to school with their full PE kit on this day including trainers.

 

Forest school and swimming will be on a Wednesday. Please remember to bring appropriate clothing for forest school on this day (long sleeves and trousers). Remember to bring an extra pair of shoes that can get muddy, too! You may leave a pair of wellies in school on your peg throughout the term if that makes it easier for you.  For swimming, remember your costume, a towel and a swimming hat!

 

Book changing day will be every Wednesday so please can you ensure reading folders or books are in school for this day. 

 

Just a gentle reminder that children need to be waiting at the door at 8.30am. Registration begins at 8.40am with the first lesson of the day beginning at 8.45am. The school day will finish at 3.20pm.

 

Do keep an eye on our class page for updates and snapshots of our learning this term!

 

I am looking forward to seeing you on Monday 4th September to start our Year 2 journey.
