Welcome to Year Two
Meet the Teaching Staff
Our names are Miss Hawkins and Mrs Cox and we are lucky enough to teach Year 2. We also work alongside Mrs Glover and Mrs Fletcher.
Our homework projects are due in before the end of each half term and the children can do one or as many projects as they want and will receive a certificate at the end to match the amount that has been completed.
This half term the children will be learning about Rainforests. We will be looking at maps to locate the world’s tropical rainforests and will be learning about the plants and animals within them.
The children will be planting a sunflower seed and will observe how it grows throughout this half term. They will learn what plants need to survive as well as look at the different parts of a plant and what they do.
The children will be using different media to create some rainforest animals using clay and pastels as well as different collage materials.
The children are learning a rainforest song and they are enjoying performing this with actions.
Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as the children are rewarded for the reading that they do.
PE is every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We ask the children to bring kit suitable for indoor and outdoor sessions. Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly named. This should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
As teachers, we know that what may seem a little problem to an adult, can be a massive problem to a child – so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child!
