Week commencing 25th September. We are really looking forward to next week! The children and staff are SO excited to be going to Beaumanor. Those children not attending will have a terrific time in school with Mrs. Finlayson on Wednesday and with Mrs. Alcock on Thursday. On Friday Penguins and Turtles who are not at Beaumanor will join Whales, Dolphins or Seals.
Before we get to Beaumanor though, we have our NSPCC Sponsored Workout on Monday afternoon. If, for some reason, you have not got a Sponsor form, let your class teacher know. The five Year 2 classes will be undertaking circuit training in teams.
Week commencing 18th September. In Year 2 we will be sharing the book "Aliens love Underpants" and beginning to look at the book "The Way Back Home". We will be sharing what we think about the stories and listening to the views of others. In Maths we will be focussing on subtraction and our ScienceTopic next week looks at natural and man-made materials and materials to be used for a particular purpose.
We have now started our daily phonics lessons (from Tuesday to Friday) and the children are getting used to going to their respective classes for this.
