Year 2 - Amethyst
Term information for Amethyst class
Welcome to one of our busiest and most fun filled terms of the year! I hope you all had a good rest and are ready for another term ahead.
This term our topic is called ‘Who is the greatest history maker?’ Please see the topic web for more information. We are busy planning our Nativity and lots of fun Christmas activities so please keep an eye out for more information coming soon via parent mail.
Please name ALL school uniform, including drinks bottles and snack pots. Please ensure your child brings a complete spare change of clothes including waterproof coat/suit or trousers, wellies, trainers, jumpers etc for Forest school. We also recommend that your child’s PE kit stays in school at all times in case of accidents and the need for a change of clothes should occur.
Forest school with Mrs Olejnik will continue the first Friday back 3rd November.
It is very important that your child completes their home learning. If they are unable to do so, please pop by and speak to one of the adults in the class or jot a note in your child’s contact book. We do keep a record of who has completed home learning and who has not, including reading at home as well.
SPAG (due in on Friday)
Maths (due in Monday)
Reading at home
Reading at home is very important in Year 2 as it is in all year groups. We would like the children to read to an adult at least 5 times a week either in school or at home. This doesn’t have to just be their school reading book; it could be a book from home, a magazine or a board game that includes following instructions. Please make sure you jot down in your child’s monkey book when you read together.
Good to be Green
‘Good to be Green' time will continue on Friday afternoons. Children may bring in a small toy on this day to play with.
Fruit and vegetables will still be given to children this year as part of the Government scheme. The children will be able to choose a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat for their morning snack. If you still wish to provide your child each morning with a healthy snack, this is fine.
Children will have outdoor PE this term. Please provide your child with the correct uniform so that they can participate in PE. Children must not wear any jewellery on PE days. Stud earrings can be worn but must be covered with tape. Long hair also needs to be tied back. All uniform must be clearly labelled as it can go astray and is very hard to find the rightful owner without it being named. PE will now take place on a Wednesday and will occur the first week back.
I hope you have all the information that you need for the term ahead, if you have any further queries please pop in and see me or look at our class page on the school website. You will have a parents evening opportunity this term. Please keep an eye out for more information about booking your appointment. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
