First Autumn Newsletter 5th November 2019


Welcome back after the half term break!


Autumn Term Targets:  The children are already working towards them and will have an opportunity to review them at the end of the term.  They are kept as bookmarks with their Literacy and Maths books.  If your child achieves the target before the end of the term we obviously will move on. The new targets will handed out at parents evening in January. 


History:  one of the children’s favourite topics is ‘The Fire of London’ we will be looking at this historical event and comparing fire fighting today with that of 1666.


Science:  we will be looking at various groupings of animals comparing similarities and differences.  We will also identify living and non-living things.


Design and Technology:  we would love you to bring in some wind-up toys and items from home for the class display.  We will also be making nursery wind-up mechanisms.  Each child will need a standard size shoebox so please save them to bring into school.


Homework:  Just a reminder that homework needs to be handed in on a Thursday so that I have time to mark it. 

Spelling is ideally learnt by repetition so please revise the words daily in preparation for the weekly test on Thursday but if your child is in Oak Group we have our test on Friday.


French:  we will be learning an exciting song called ‘Leon le Cameleon’ which incorporates colours, animals and food, so watch this space.


Home School Book:  Please keep the book in the school bag unless you have sent a message.  The blue box is where your child can put the book.  I will then check it, reply if necessary and return it to the school bag.


Outing to Tyntesfield:  this will be on Tuesday 19th November.  The theme is called Art Attack.  


Year 2 Christingle Servicewe will be inviting you to our class Christingle service – date to be confirmed.


School Website:  our class page is called ‘Indigo’ please look at it as we regularly post photos which show some of the activities we do during our busy week.  I will use our app to inform you of any new posts.


As you know this is also the ‘Christmas Play’ term so look out for information about outfits.


Just a reminder, if you would like to speak to me about any concerns, I am usually available before or after school or make an appointment at the office.

Yours sincerely


Felicity Gibb
