Year 2


Happy New Year Everyone!


I really hope that you all stayed well, had a rest, fresh air, family time and a great break and are ready and raring to go for an even busier term! I had a lovely time and although I missed seeing people over the holidays it was actually really nice and refreshing to have time to relax, play games, spend time with my family, watch movies, go out for walks and read. I cannot wait to hear about what you have all been doing and to be back with you.



I have put the plan of things that we will be learning about this half term in each subject. Our overall Topic is Africa. In PE we will be doing Dance and Circuits, in Science we will be looking at Materials, RE is learning about Belonging and ICT is Creating pictures. These subjects are alongside all of the other things that we learn in Phonics, Handwriting, English, Reading and Maths so as usual, we will be trying our best, smiling, having fun, being happy and learning lots. Sometimes our plans may change though and that is ok.


Like I told you before the holidays, you will have me teaching you from Monday to Thursday and Miss Thrower on a Friday. Miss Jackson will be with us all of the time and we will also have Mrs Doel for some of the week. PE will still be on Tuesday and Thursdays so please come in your PE kit on those days. Forest Schools has finished now so please come to school in your uniform on a Monday and remember to bring your water bottle with fresh water each day. It is quite cold at the moment so remember to wrap up warm and we will still have the windows open in the classroom so you may need an extra layer on under your uniform.


Miss Thrower will be doing spellings, Science, Times Tables and Art  with you and I will do everything else. Don't worry about times tables at the moment, Miss Thrower will talk to you about them on Friday. Over the next few weeks you will get used to how we will be doing Times Tables but the first times table you will be learning is the two times table. You will not be having tests yet. We will let your parents know in due course about how they work but you need to know how to do them first!


I can't wait to see you tomorrow,

Mrs Charlesworth
