Welcome to Year 2!
We have had a fantastic start to the year and are really happy to be back! It has been wonderful to see your children’s smiles as they come into the classroom each morning eager to learn and to see their friends. We would like to thank you for all of your support to ensure your child had a smooth transition back to school.
We begin each day with a Number Time session followed by Maths. After playtime we conduct our English and Guided Reading lessons.
Our playtime is at 10.30am – 10.45am and our lunch in at 12.15pm which we eat in our classrooms. We then head outside at 12.40pm for our lunch playtime.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday so please send your child into school dressed in their PE clothes on these days. Children are allowed to wear sports trousers and can wear a sports sweatshirt or their school jumper.
We have been incredibly busy over the past 2 weeks designing and creating our own board games which include unique characters. We were given a design brief from the knights which we have been working hard to fulfil! Next we will be testing our board games and evaluating them before the knights are invited back to play them – we can’t wait to see what they think!
Last week Year 2 were on their way to an outdoor assembly when all of a sudden two medieval knights appeared out of nowhere! They started to play dominoes but they had no idea how to play, which resulted in a sword fight! The children were so shocked but thankfully the knights left a scroll in the office apologising for their behaviour and asked them to embark on a special CASTLE QUEST to design their own board game that the knights would enjoy playing.
The children have been busy researching games throughout history and this week we are creating characters for our own board games.
