Year 2 Learning. Term 4, Week 1


This Week:
Whole School 100 Day – Thursday 22nd February
We are asking for your support in enabling your child to come to school with one thing you can find at home that represents 100. These will be shared in class. Some examples include:

  • A top trumps card with ‘100’ on it
  • £1 (100p)
  • An item that is 100cm tall
  • Something that weighs 100g
  • A puzzle with 100 pieces
  • A book with 100 pages
  • 100th anniversary booklet

Learning Share Morning – Friday 23rd February, 9am. A chance for your child to share their learning with you in class after drop off. If your child is your class star of the week this week then our assembly will follow on from the open morning. Your class teacher will let you know more.

Next Week:
Parents Evenings – Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th February. You should have made your appointment times if you need to but please let your teachers know if you are having any difficulty.

We will be having a SPACE WOW DAY (Week 5) at the end of this term to celebrate our learning and we will give you more details nearer the time. It will involve dressing up for those who wish to! There will also be more information next week on the blog about World Book Day Celebrations (Wednesday 6th March) this year and Red Nose Day! ( Friday 15th March) Both will also involve dressing up if your child chooses to. An exciting term ahead!
