Snowy Owl - Year 2


 

Snowy Owls Class Important Information

Spring Term 2022

 

 We have had another fantastic week in school, demonstrating positive learning behaviour in class and around the school. Lots of children have been earning the 'Capes of Success' and have been caught going 'Over and Above' in class. Well done Snowy Owl's!

Mantle of the Expert

When we are 'stepping into the story' this term, we are travelling back in time to 1666. A terrible fire has been raging through the streets of London. People are desperately trying to put the fire out by carrying water in leather buckets from the River Thames, but to no success. Houses are being pulled down to try and stop the spread. King Charles II is keen to find a team of experts to investigate how this happened and why the fire is spreading so quickly. We are 'The Fire Marshall Expert Team'.

Please see the planning attached below for more information about this half-term's learning.

Key Information

I look forward to sharing regular updates of your child's learning on Tapestry each week, and will be attaching home learning via Tapestry as well as this web page each Friday.  Please note that usernames are now in the back of your child's reading record for access to 'MyMaths' and Times Table Rock Stars'. Please also check the weekly newsletter and your emails for other events happening across the school.

Reading

Please read and sign the diaries each day, so that the children can move up our reading game in class. They will receive certificates for the first 10 reads, then 25, 50, 75, 100 etc. This is an exciting way to encourage a love of reading, and we really appreciate your support with this, thank you.

PE

Our PE days have changed to a TUESDAY and FRIDAY. Please ensure that earrings are taken out, or that your child can remove them independently on these days and that hair is tied back. Please can you also make sure they have the full kit in school. This includes; black/dark jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, black shorts, a green jumper and trainers. Thank you.

Forest School

We are very pleased to be participating in Forest School sessions once again this term. These will take place every Thursday. I will add photographs and updates to Tapestry.
