Term 1

WOW! What a great start to the year. The children have settled into year 2 quickly and positively.

Stunning Start

We kicked off the term with a magical mystery world tour where the children experienced what it might be like on an aeroplane and then, chose arts and crafts to make from different regions in the world. We continue to learn the names of the continents and oceans in the world. Why not get them to sing this tune with you at home:

Parent Event

Thank you to all of you who were able to attend the parental event, in order to find out more about events and expectations in year 2.

    

Miss Byrne, Miss Quinn and Miss Clarke will continue to have parent consultations in term 2. Please book one with your child’s teacher if you haven’t already done so. Keep a look out for future parent events – coming soon!

Science

This term, the children have been finding out about living things and their habitats. It has been lovely to do some of our learning in our Sandown outside environment. Of course, it has also been very exciting to welcome our Shetland ponies, Lenny and Daisy, to our Sandown Community too.

  

English

The children loved our topic book this term, Those Magnificent Sheep in their flying machine, by Peter Bently. They produced some beautiful postcards describing different places around the world, including Egypt and Tibet. We also learnt how to write instructions, using imperative (bossy) verbs and sequencing in order. We found it wasn’t as easy as we thought to instruct an alien on how to make a jam sandwich!
