It is important that your child reads every day! Please write in the dairy so that we know they have read at home. The children can change their reading books as often as they need to!
Our PE day is on a Tuesday. During the Autumn Term the children will be outside. Please ensure they have warm clothing and trainers.
We will be going to forest schools on a Thursday afternoon. During the Autumn term children can come to school in their Forest school clothes. Please make sure you bring a change of footwear or wellies for the session.
We will be giving out spellings each week for you to practise at home.

Our Learning in Autumn 1
This half term Year 2 have been appreciating our local area. We have been on walks to explore our local area. We followed a map to help direct us . We spotted lots of different physical and human features. Some of the things we were proud off, other things we were not so proud of. We wrote letters to our local MP Lee Anderson to explain to him all about our local area and then we were very lucky as we were able to talk to our MP on Zoom. This half-term we have also been creating sculptures in the style of Andy Goldsworthy who is a British sculptor who likes to use natural materials in our environment.
