Welcome to Year 2!
We’re looking forward to another packed term in year 2. Beech have already enjoyed story mapping The Troll Swap linked to our current Pathways English topic, whilst Sycamore have been exploring the different countries that make up the United Kingdom and finding out what makes each country different. You can see more of the exciting work of year 2 on our Twitter account searching for the hashtags #sycamoreuhps or #beechuhps.
We are very lucky that it will be Year 2’s turn for Branching Out forest school during the autumn term 2 so all children need to remember to bring in their warm forest school clothing ready for some exciting sessions in the mini woods.
Top tips for Year 2
Reading: Reading books are changed every Monday and Thursday. However, children are able to change their books independently any other day if needed.
Home learning: Home learning will be given out on a Friday and collected on a Tuesday. All children also have their Times Table Rockstar passwords and should remember to regularly log on and play
PE: Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school every day as we occasionally have PE visitors for extra sessions. Our timetabled PE slots are Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Full school PE kit is required – shorts, t-shirt and pumps for indoors, and joggers, jumper and trainers for outdoors.
If you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate to ask a member of the team.
