Year 2 Looking Back and Forth 19th May

Friday 19th May 2023 – Looking Back & Forth in Year 2

Looking back:

Year 2 continue to make me a very proud teacher. They have worked so hard to write their own version of the Bear and the Piano – many budding authors! They have retained their arithmetic skills. In history we have learned about Mary Seacole and Marie Curie, working together to find out important facts. In geography with Mrs Saxton the children have begun exploring a non-European country and so are learning about South Africa. They have also enjoyed RE, PE and music. It has been a great week!

Year 2 – Pupils’ Highlights:

  • Caterpillars
  • Writing stories
  • Geography
  • Friends and teachers
  • Learning Makaton in assembly

Family discussion/questions:  

Who was Marie Curie?

Looking forward:

  • Reading books will be changed on Mondays. The reading folder is needed in school every day please . Thank you.
  • This term PE will be on TUESDAY. School PE kits should be worn.
  • Writing a letter
  • Science – caterpillars
  • History – finishing our topic and discovering how much has been learned
