Welcome To Year 2

Time flies when you’re having fun!

I cannot believe we are now into the summer term!

Last term was crammed with many rich learning opportunities. We enjoyed an African Dance workshop led by a professional dance teacher, designed and made African masks and learnt lots of interesting African facts! We enjoyed a trip to Knowsley Safari Park to support our learning about African animals and this has enabled us to produce some amazing information and recount writing!

For Fairtrade fortnight, the children enjoyed creating posters to support this event and they have learnt what it means to pay a fair price.

Our Easter celebrations included a trip to church which meant we were able to consolidate and develop our understanding of the Easter story. We were lucky to have been part of an Easter experience led by year 3, 4 and 5. The children thoroughly enjoyed being taught by their peers as they moved around each church and station, learning about the key events of this important Christian festival.  

The summer term class newsletter is now attached and this will give you more information of what’s planned for our final term. Opportunities include enjoying a weekly singing lesson with a qualified singing teacher, a trip to Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and of course our highlight of the year, our Beeston Residential! While we are there, we will enjoy a trip to the famous Beeston Castle, as well as a visit to the Candle Workshop. More information will be given at our information evening.  I will update this page with photographs, as soon as we return!

What an exciting term we have ahead of us!

Forest School dates are now confirmed and these can be found under the forest school class page. The children are benefiting immensely from these sessions, as they develop their self-esteem and confidence, as well as learning to love and respect their outdoor environment.  

As always, I will keep you fully updated of what’s going on in class, via our weekly homework letter. Don’t forget drop-in sessions continue to be available on Mondays, between 3.15pm and 3.45pm, for you to discuss with me any concerns you may have. You can also arrange a time to speak to myself on the phone or I am able to offer a meeting at a later time, by prior arrangement. 

Thank you for your continued support.
