Year 2 Teacher
Miss A McNally
Hello everyone and welcome back to the start of the Spring Term! We hope you all had a wonderful break and are as eager to get back to the classroom as us. Your teacher will be Mrs Ferris and your teaching assistants will be Ms McNally, Mrs Davies (Friday).
This term we will learn about the human body and how it changes, the importance of exercise and the importance of good hygiene in 'Animals including Humans' in Science. In English we will learn about story writing, using 'The Magic Brush' to inspire our writing. After this we will learn about instructional writing with 'How to wash a woolly mammoth!' In Maths we will be exploring our understanding of money and later in the half term, we will begin our learning of 'Multiplication and Division'. In Geography we will be learning all about the UK and what makes us unique. We will explore the four countries which make the United Kingdom and we will be comparing them and looking at their human and physical features. Over this half term, we will be having PE on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Please can your child come into school in their PE kit on Wednesday morning (with their school uniforms in a bag) and then leave their kit here for their Thursday lesson. We will then send kits home on Fridays. We will have our weekly Spelling Challenge on a Tuesday. Please also remember to bring your completed homework in on a Tuesday too. Your new homework will be handed out on a Friday.
As the weather is now often cold and wet, please make sure that you come to school prepared with a named coat. Just a reminder that you should aim to arrive at school for 8:45am. We look forward to our next half term together! Mrs Ferris and Miss McNally
