Year 2 have enjoyed a busy week of activities based around the Tempest. We drew our own magical islands, then in groups collaborated to create the sounds we might hear on our islands.
The highlight of the week was retelling the Tempest with our Patron of Reading Stephanie Clarkson.
The children have settled in really well to Year 2. In they very first week enjoyed a Great Fire of London workshop. They baked bread and practised writing with a quill and ink.
They’ve enjoyed taking their leaning outside whenever they can.

PE is on a Tuesday and Friday. Until further notice, PE kit will not be required. Instead, we would ask all children to wear trainers as suitable footwear ready for physical education activities. This is to ensure minimal belongings are moving between home and school.
A named water bottle containing water only.
A blue sweater for when we go out on trips.
Monday – fortnightly Home Learning project in for the following Thursday.
Friday – the children have a spelling test every Friday. They must have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week. We recommend children use the look, say, cover, spell, check method to practise these.
They will have a maths homework every Friday, which needs to be completed for the following week.
Reading – children are expected to read at least 3 times a week with a parent or carer.
We ask you to support your child by hearing them read their individual levelled reading books at home. We would appreciate it if parents could sign and make a comment in the reading diaries at least three times a week. Helpers may also hear your child read their individual reading book in school, so it is important that this book is brought to school every day. Books are changed in school every week.
