Welcome to Year 2!
Hello Year 2,
I am so excited for our year together. Next year, we will be learning about lot of exciting things such as: The 100 Acre Wood, Christmas around the World and The Great Fire of London, during these topics we will be looking at lots of exciting writing topics and getting messy in our art lessons. In maths, we will be looking at the place value of numbers to 100. It would be really good if you could practice counting to 100 and number formation. Throughout the year, we will be looking at a range of books, both familiar short stories, which I am sure you will know and can join in with, as well as some longer books for you to listen to at the end of the day.
Our first topic will be based on the woods. We will be looking at a range of familiar stories based on this topic, such as: The Gruffalo, Little Red Riding Hood, Winnie the Pooh and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. Maybe you could read some books about the woods and tell me about them.
It has been really lovely to meet so many of you during the summer term, which means I will know a lot of your names and a bit about you. I am excited to be meeting the rest of you in September and get to know you too.
I hope that you all have a wonderful summer and that the sun will shine for us to be able to get out and about. Maybe you could go for a walk in the woods, so that you will be able to share your experiences with the class when we return in September.
We are very lucky to have Mrs Simmons with us each day and Mrs Sharpe each morning, we are all looking forward to a busy and fun year together.
Miss Parry, Mrs Sharpe and Mrs Simmons
