A warm welcome to Class 2!
I hope you have all had a wonderful summer holiday and have made many memories. The children have come back to school energised and ready to work hard, they have settled into life in Year 2 quickly and we have set our expectations high.
Our topic this half term is called “The Big Dig”, we have a trench on the school site that has been specifically dug for us to explore and become fossil hunters in our own right! Please ensure that your child has a coat and a pair of old shoes or wellies in school so that they have the appropriate attire for when we start digging!
A massive thank you for the amazing holiday homework that the children have brought in. We have discovered many different species of dinosaurs over the summer which have led to a great class discussion already. The children’s work is currently on display in the hall and classroom.
Roald Dahl Day 13th September
The class showed so much enthusiasm for some of the stories we have been reading that our Roald Dahl Day turned into a whizzpopping week in Year 2! The children have had a great week learning about different characters and texts from Roald Dahl. We have written why we like our favourite character, if they were a hero or villain and then we wrote a wonderful character description. The week finished in style with the children dressing up as Roald Dahl characters – they looked amazing as you can see.
