Hello everyone. We hope you had a good break and are ready to explore!
This half term out topic is “People of the past”.
As always we are asking the children to complete a project by the end of the half term-this can be a picture, a piece of writing or anything else that the children would like to do as a part of their homework on the topic “People of the past”.
By the end of the "People of the past" project the children will achieve their learning targets. We will be celebrating their success in the form of a project assembly. Children are free to draw, paint, write or make something that is related to the topic
In Year 2 reading is a form of homework. We strongly encourage the children to read with their parents every day for at least 30 minutes. The children will be taking their reading level books home and they will be given a reading record to log their reading sessions at home. Every week the child who's read the most times will be named "The reader of the week" and will be given a prize.
This is a program that gives points (dojos) to the children for doing something nice. It could be helping others, answering teacher's questions or completing their tasks quickly and correctly. Each week the dojos are counted and the winner will be named "The dojo of the week" and will be given a prize.
The children in Years 0, 1 and 2 are entitled to free school meals. We strongly encourage the children to have a hot school dinner, especially in winter months. A selection of fruits is provided in class on an everyday basis or they can bring a little snack to have at break times. Menus are available at the School Meals quick link above.
