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.
