Year 2 Learning. Term 4, Week 5

Explorer Dome

This Week:
This Friday 22nd March Year 2 WOW Day – Space themed. Dress up if you wish! You should have received a request for payment towards our very exciting Explorer Dome experience. Thank you.

Next Week:
We will be asking the children who would like to take part in the Y2 Maypole dancing at the May Fair. If your child brings home a letter it is because they have expressed an interest. We need you to return the letter signed to state that they are able to attend the fair on Saturday 18th May and can commit to the event. Please encourage your child to take part – the more the merrier!

Week 6:
Last day of term will be our famous ‘Year 2 Spring Bonnet Parade’. There will be a small prize for each class for the entry that catches Mrs. Fricker’s eye! Children can decorate hats/caps at home and bring in their entry on the last day of term. This will also be non-uniform day with donations to FHIS.

We will be watching the Year 1 Performance Dress Rehearsal on Wednesday Morning. What a treat!
