Year 2 - Beech 2022 - 2023
Maths Subject Leader
Welcome to Beech Class.
We begin our new school year with the topic The Enchanted Woodland which has a Science focus. This exciting topic will develop the children's knowledge of British wildlife and woodland habitats. Children will observe and identify plants and animals, understand seasonal changes and appreciate the wonder of the woodland.
If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a BIG surprise. Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints – animal or imp? You decide. Deciduous or evergreen? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower? Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy. Then let’s party down in the woods with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost. Let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go. At last, it’s time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum.
Our P.E. days this term are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please could children keep a drawstring bag containing their P.E. kit in school so they can change into their P.E. kit on the relevant days.
A reading book and reading diary will be sent home with the children. Please record any reading you have done with your child in the reading diary.
Homework, spellings linked to phonics and phonics Rainbow Words will be given out on a Wednesday and will be tested on a Monday.
