We hope you had a good half-term break, despite the rather wet weather. We have lots of things to look forward to this term, and we are relieved that we are returning to our classrooms, even though many other venues will be closed for the time being.
Autumn is well and truly upon us, and the beautiful colours of the autumn trees must certainly be enjoyed by everyone. We are going to start this term by reading some Autumn poetry, and writing some of our own. We will also be reading the lovely story of 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark'. This will give us plenty of opportunity for writing instructions and creating art work around the theme of owls.
Our History topic, this term, will be focussing on 'The Gunpowder Plot', and our Science work is about 'Animals including Humans'.
We will continue with PE on our set days, Wednesday for Llama class and Friday for Polar Bear class. We are going to be able to use the hall on alternate weeks, so we will be able to have some dance and drama sessions interspersed with outdoor games skills, dependent on weather. Please continue to come to school in your PE clothes on your PE day. However, if you need to keep earrings in on your PE day, please bring some Micropore tape to school so you can cover your earrings.
We will be having 'parent and teacher' progress discussions via telephone calls, this term. More information will be sent out about this shortly. However, don't forget that you can contact your child's teacher using the class email address, if you have any questions or concerns.

Visiting Snake and Tortoise
Dear Parents and Carers,
As part of our Literacy unit on Fables, we are expecting visits from Mrs Carter's tortoise and Caroline's rat snake. This is to give the children inspiration for planning their own fable, with a choice of their own animals.
If there is any reason that you do not want your child in the room with the tortoise and the snake, please let the class teachers know by email.

Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome back everyone! We are so looking forward to getting to know you all. You may be feeling excited about seeing your friends again and meeting your new teachers. However, you may also be feeling a little bit nervous. Don't worry, we are all here to help you!
Things may be a little bit different from Year 1. You will, of course, be in a new classroom and have different teachers. However, you will still have an outside area for playtimes and your learning will continue to build on what you learnt last year.
We've got an exciting term planned and we are really looking forward to the next step in your school journey.
Mrs Parker-Gorman and Mrs Carter
