Welcome back to a New Term and a New Year!!
Hello again and a Happy New Year to you all!! I hope that you have all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with lots of precious family time!! I can't believe what an exciting term we have just enjoyed!; it has just flown!! From our trip to the Salt Museum to learn about The Great Fire of London; our trip to the Fire Station and of course, our exciting trip to Chester Zoo, we have had a jam packed term with lots of fun whilst learning. This term also promises to be an exciting and challenging term especially with our residential trip to Burwardsley (a letter to follow shortly).
On this page you will find lots of information, events and news about the class, our topics and most importantly the wonderful work we produce! You will also find important information about our daily routines, homework and dates for your diaries.
If you have concerns, questions or worries please feel free to pop in and see me, either before or after school or you can leave a message via email, phone or in the class message book located in the school office. My door is always open.

Our New Topic for the SpringTerm is...
Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert. They are all very close . . . so close, in fact, that one day Sunny decides it's just too crowded and packs his bags. He's off to visit his mongoose cousins. But from the watery world of the Marsh Mongoose to the nocturnal lifestyle of the Malagasy ... This hilarious and enchanting story by author and illustrator, Emily Gravett has already got the children completely hooked and enthralled. Alongside this text, there will be lots of cross-curricular learning by embedding our learning into English, Mathematics, Geography, Science, Art, DT and Music. I am really looking forward to learning alongside the children!
Our recent visit to Weaver Hall Museum to learn more about
The Great Fire of London
Our Class Author
Reading is such an important part of a child's learning. Most importantly, it should be enjoyable and fun! Each half term, we will focus on an author from our Year 2 Reading Spine. This term it is the author of our topic text....Emily Gravett who is an English author and illustrator of children's picture books. For her debut book published in 2005 and again two years later, she won the annual Kate Greenaway Medal recognising the year's best-illustrated British children's book. Watch this space as we research her work and find out lots about her!
