Year 2 Reds
Welcome to Year Two
Dear Pupils, Parents/Guardians,
Welcome back! We hope you are well rested and looking forward to a great successful year ahead as much as we are! It is going to be a busy and exciting year for us all with lots of creative and stimulating lessons planned.
This half term our year 2 children will be learning all about ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’. Children will learn about the historic timeline of castles, different features of castles and their purpose as well as creating their very own castles. In science children will learn to make predictions during their experiments with regards to attacking and defending castles. In P.E children will be taught special skills in gymnastics and football. Indoor gymnastics will take place every Monday afternoon and outdoor football on Wednesday afternoons. Can parents please ensure children bring in suitable footwear for outdoor P.E (i.e. trainers) for the half term.
Children’s reading books will be sent out regularly with their very own reading records which will allow parents and teachers to share comments regarding children’s reading success. Activity bags will be sent out in week 4, we look forward to seeing all the great creations!
A choice of healthy snacks will be available to children daily for a small charge of 20p per day. Children can bring in the money daily or pay up front for the week on Monday mornings.
We are looking forward to working with your child and sharing all the great work with yourselves. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries. Thank you!

Spring 2- Activity Bag
This half term our topic is called ‘Beat Band Boogie!’ It is a topic all about music. We will be having a visit from a member of the Halle Orchestra soon and we have already composed some music using things from a kitchen. It was VERY noisy!
For our activity bag we would love you to make your own instrument. You can use things that you have around your house and use the instructions in the activity bag to help you.
