Saint Peter's R.C. Primary School God is at the heart of our school

Class 2

Welcome to Year 2!

A very warm welcome to our webpage!

We have had an amazing start to the year!

On this page you will find out information about what is happening in class so keep checking back for updates.

We had an absolute BLAST at the Space Centre!

We had such a great time making our space suits! We designed them first so knew what we wanted them to look like. We then worked in groups to create them. We worked well as a team and helped each other. After we had made them, we evaluated them thinking about what worked well and things that we found challenging. We thought about what we would do differently next time. All of our knowledge of materials from our science lessons really helped us. 

  • Half term starts Friday 12th October. We return to school on Tuesday 23rd October.
  • Have a wonderful break!

Topic/Science

 

Our topic this half term is SPACE! We will be learning about the great explorer Neil Armstrong and finding out about his mission to the moon! In science, we are going to be exploring which materials would be suitable for a space suit and then we will make our own! 

Literacy

 

We are reading 'Dr Xargle's Book of Earthlets'. 

Dr Xargle sent us a video message and asked us to do something very important for him and his class! We have accepted the challenge!

Important Information

  • Homework consists of reading, spelling and maths. Homework books will be given out on a Friday and collected in on Wednesday.
  • There will be a maths task for your child to complete as independently as possible. 
  • Spellings must also be practised in their homework book. There are a lot to learn so your support with this is invaluable. Practise using any strategies from the strategies for spelling sheet. 
  • Reading is the main part of your child's homework and it would be amazing if you could read at home daily with your child and record it in the new reading record. Children are rewarded with certificates for regular reading at home!
  • They may also receive the whole school homework prize for going above and beyond with their homework. 
  • PE is on a Monday afternoon so your child will need their full PE kit on this day. I advise that they keep the kit in school all week as our timetable is flexible and our lessons may change.  
  • Every Friday, a child is chosen as our 'Star of the Week'. They will have the opportunity to take home Marble, our class teddy otter and write about the adventures they get up to over that week! This is shared with the rest of the class the following week.
