Welcome to Year 2!
This term we have lots of adventures planned to help us answer the essential question:
In the past few weeks already, we have learnt to retell the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood. We have innovated the story to make the wolf a good character.
In topic lessons, we have been on walks around our school investigating road signs and the safety measures for road users (both in car and pedestrians). We we have been fortunate to have a visit from PCSO Bowden. He informed us of further signs to be on the look out for, as well as learning how to cross roads safely.
Our school trip to Great Wood Farm EYC was amazing, the rain did not stop us! We spent the day in the forest making new homes for the fairies and goblins as well as learning about farming, harvests and food production with a tractor and trailer ride. Lunch was cooked in the forest and tasted scrummy!
LEADER IN ME
On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too.
We are continuing to use Growth Mindset to encourage resilience and perseverance for all our children to support and further their learning. Our Collective Worship this term will support this by focussing on mental wellbeing, healthy life-style and positive relationships which links our seventh value of Sharpen the Saw. Further information can be found by following the link below.
This term we are trying something new!
I have created a homework grid with English, Maths, Topic, PSHE, Physical activities as well as one that covers this terms value of be Proactive.
Please complete one task per week to be handed in for marking on a Thursday. After marking last weeks homework, it was enjoyable to share the variety of activities completed by the children, giving them ownership to complete the task that interests them first.
My Style homework - to be handed in on 6th November, the children are asked to create their project homework in the style of a poster, art, story or creation of the wonders that lie in the enchanted woods. This is a chance where your imagination can run wild!
