Weekly Update – 17.05.2019

In our topic work this week we have learned about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, and used his style of painting to make our own sunflower pictures. We contrasted this with the work of artist Patrick Caulfield – the children have been able to discuss which style they prefer and why. Ask your child what they think!

In English this week Mrs Alexander & Mrs Gilbert’s group have been making books about minibeasts, while Mr Winch’s group are writing an alternate version of James & The Giant Peach. In Maths, both groups continue to revisit aspects of the curriculum which were taught earlier in the year.

Next week is “Walk to School Week”. We look forward to as many of you as possible walking, scooting or cycling. The J.R.S.Os will be handing out stickers on the gate for extra incentive!

A final reminder that any outstanding Castle Hedingham reply slips need to be handed in by next Wednesday – we will not be able to take your child without this. If you require the school to provide a packed lunch for the trip, please let a member of the Year 2 team know.

The school Photographer will be in school next Thursday 23rd May to take class photographs of the children so please ensure they are wearing full school uniform with a red cardigan or sweatshirt please.

Finally, a reminder that it is a Staff PD Day next Friday, the last day of term is Thursday 23rd May and we will return on Monday 3rd June.

Have a great weekend

The Year 2 Team
