Year 2 have had a fantastic last week of Autumn 1!
In English, we have been working on our writing showcase, where we have written our own ending to the Three Little Pigs.
In phonics, our focus sound this week has been /ee/ and we have continued to review different ways to build the /d/ sound.
In history, we wrote fact files of the trailblazers we learnt about this half term. The children then created portraits using oil pastels of one of the trailblazers: Mary Anning, Mae Jemison, Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus.
For our last forest school session, we created clay models of different animals we might find in the forest.
We were also lucky enough to have a special assembly on ‘Hidden Figures’, learning all about trailblazers in black history.
We will be celebrating Art Week on the first week back after half term, along with daily maths and phonics. We hope you have a wonderful half term break!
Phonics books have been changed today. Those who remembered to return Jake the Snake will have received a new book today. Please can this be read with them and returned on Friday 3rd November.
If you didn’t return Jake the Snake, please remember to bring it on the first Monday after half term. You will incur a £5 fine if this isn’t returned. Your child will be given their new phonics book once the old one is returned.
PE and Forest School
PE kits and forest school kits should be taken home today to be washed. Please bring PE kits back on Monday 30th October.
