This term our topic is 'terrific tales'. We have already started exploring our new book 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward. What a brilliant story it is! We have enjoyed creating our own tin forest in the classrooms using the book as inspiration.
We have all had the opportunity to bring our bikes to school and ride with our friends. Some of us have even learnt to ride our bikes for the first time during bike it week. Thank you to Amanda from Bike it for all of her help!
We spent an energetic afternoon in the hall with Carl from Kidzfit. We learnt all about how to keep our bodies healthy and fit whilst having great fun dancing and hula hooping to music.
We are continuing to develop our reading skills through regular practise at home and school. We love taking our reading dogs home for the night. Children are encouraged to read 5 times a week for a chance to meet Archie the reading dog. Lots of our children are showing lots of dedication to their reading and are improving all of the time.
Next week we will be celebrating Science and Technology week. We have already enjoyed a science show where we had the opportunity to participate in exciting science investigations. We can't wait to explore a variety of science activities and learn more about the world around us. Next week will be another chance for us to discuss the importance of E-safety. Please continue to reinforce E-safety at home.
Thank you for all of your continued support,
The year 2 team.
