Welcome to Year 2
Mrs Crook and Miss Kerslake welcome you to Class 2C
What an exciting term to join the Samuel Barlow family. Thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcome already. Please pop in to say hello if we haven’t met already or if there is anything you would like to discuss. We have so many new learning opportunities planned this term, it’s going to be amazing!!!!
Ever heard of the ‘The Owl who was afraid of the Dark’?? This book will be the focus of our literacy lessons in the first few weeks of term before writing our own short stories. Children will help Plop overcome his fears with their own words of wisdom and think creatively about what else could be scary for a night owl.
2, 4 , 6, 8 who do you appreciate…Times Tables!!! We will be singing, dancing, building and shaping objects into different arrays to help us conquer Multiplication and Division this term. There are lots of ways you can help children at home with this. Follow the link below for some ideas and the vocabulary we will be using in school.
New Year is an excellent time to think about keeping healthy. During Science lessons we will take a closer look at human development and life cycles. We will think about what food and exercise we need to keep our bodies running at their best. There may even be an exciting trip to help us discover what makes a well-balanced meal.
E-Safety is a really important part of everyday life. During computing lessons will we talk about how children should stay safe online and what to do if something goes wrong. Please look out for updates on our Website about this.
Music, PE, Art, SEAL and more will also be delivered weekly to help each day be action packed.
Your child will need their reading books and reading records in school every day.
PE kit will be needed on a Monday and it is advised they leave it in school all week for any other planned sporting activities.
Your child will need to bring a named water bottle everyday filled with water only please.
Please ensure all coats and jumpers are named to prevent them getting lost.
