Weekly Update – 15.11.2019


Our Children In Need ‘Fit Friday’ has been a fun end to a busy week, thank you all for your kind donations. £366 was raised!

Thank you to those of you who came to the recent Parent’s Evenings – it has been helpful to discuss any particular needs or successes, and to find out how the children feel about school! We are pleased to hear so many children are enjoying Year 2.

This week the children have learned about Tudor houses, you may want to ask them what the toilet was like in a Tudor house?! We compared these houses to our own, particularly the materials used. Each child then made a model house, which we used to make miniature cities of London. They were very keen to use their knowledge and point out where Pudding Lane and the Bakery might be!

We followed this us up by drawing maps of London, revisiting skills and knowledge used when we drew maps of the seaside. We also had great fun building and creating bridges to cross the River Thames – we have some budding engineers and architects in Year 2!

In English next week Mr Winch’s group will focus on reading comprehension, while Mrs Alexander’s/Mrs Gilbert’s group will be making a book ordering the events of the Great Fire of London.

In Maths Mr Winch’s group will continue to look at money, including working out change. It would be useful for them to look at real-life coins at home and get them to count an amount for you. Mrs Alexander’s/Mrs Gilbert’s group will move on from multiplication, looking at division.

Our Christmas Hamper this year is “Blue and Silver”. We would be very grateful for any contributions towards this which would need to be in by the 29th November. Thank you!

Finally – on Tuesday 3rd December, we will be taking Year 2 to the Theatre Royal to see the pantomime! This is kindly subsidised by FOSWS. Please sign and returned the reply slip by Friday 29th November. Payment should be made via the School GATEWAY, thank you.

Have a great weekend

The Year 2 Team
