Welcome back to another exciting school year! All of the Year Two children have settled into their new classes very well and are transitioning well into the Year Two routine.

We have been fortunate enough to start this half term with a twist and as a school explored Southfields Farm to extend our learning of our Topic ‘Food for life’.

To launch our food for life topic we read the book ‘The enormous turnip’ children had the opportunity to make and taste turnip soup. The children learned about where our food comes from, including which food grows above and below the ground Children used their artistic talents to carefully draw a fruit bowl and colour it appropriately.

Our new topic is WS10, the children have been looking at the geography of the local area. We used google maps to look at Darlaston, the children thoroughly enjoyed this, especially when they found ASDA! We are looking forward into finding out about the history of the local area and visiting the Black Country Museum at Christmas.

In Science we have been learning about habitats. Maths this term we will be focussing on number. In English we have been reading Jim and the Beanstalk, children have had the opportunity to create their own version of the story.

This term Year 1 PE will be on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school.

As this is an extremely important year for the children, could we please ask that you support us by ensuring that your child has completed their homework and returned it to school by the following Friday after receiving it. Children need to be reading at home to an adult every day and this needs to be recorded into their reading diaries. Spellings will be set according to the National Curriculum and will be sent home to practice on a Friday for a spelling test the following Friday.

We look forward to working alongside you to support your children

End of Key Stage 1 Assessments  

 

Children in Year 2 will be soon doing their end of Key Stage 1 SATs in Reading and Maths. We will begin testing during the week beginning Tuesday 7th May, up until the half term break. Please be assured that we aim to do everything we can to keep the tests as stress free as possible for the children. The tests themselves form only one part of the overall judgments made. Please do everything you can to make sure that your child is in school every day during this time.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

Welcome back to another exciting school year! All of the Year Two children have settled into their new classes very well and are transitioning well into the Year Two routine.

 

To start the school term, we have focused on work based around the text: The Secret Sky Garden, in which children have learned about the effects of littering, how to plant seeds and take care of an outdoor environment.

 

We have recently planted pumpkin seeds, as part of our English work around the text: Pattan’s Pumpkin. These plants will then be transferred to the planters in our kitchen garden. Once the vegetables have grown and been harvested, they will be cooked in our kitchen and the children will be able to taste the food that they have grown. This is part of the work the school is doing to raise awareness of where our food comes from.

 

It has been a busy and fun packed half term and the children have produced some great pieces of work. Our Geography topic this term is: How does the weather affect our lives, the children have been learning about the different weather types, the seasons we experience throughout the year and have kept their own weather log. The children have created artwork linked to the different weather types and even used musical instruments to create the sounds of different weathers. In Science, we have been finding out about habitats and will be looking at materials next half term. Maths this term focuses on number and place value.

Homework and Reading is a very important part of Year Two children’s school work. Could we please ask that you support us by ensuring that your child has completed their homework and returned it to school by the following Friday. Also, please ensure that your child is reading at home to an adult every day. Please record this in their reading diaries and return this back to school in their school book bag. Spellings will be set according to the National Curriculum and will be sent home to practice on a Friday for a spelling test the following Thursday.
