Croeso i Ddosbarth 2 - Welcome to Year 2
Hello and Welcome!
Hello Year 2,
We hope you have all had a lovely half term holiday full of lots of lovely Jubilee activities. Our team are looking forward to hearing about your adventures when you return to school next week.
Our half term will be filled with lots of events and learning activities created to stimulate their imagination and investigative skills. We will be visiting the coast at Southerndown to look at habitats and create sand creatures. Our class will also be looking at the wonderful things that Wales has to offer. They may come up with some ideas for family day trips!
Our Competitions topic continues this term and I am sure their competitiveness will be brought out during Sports Day and the other competitions we will be taking part in. This half term the children will be creating a their own stories and recording them. We will also be reading poetry to one another and they will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in stories in our reading cafe.
We are looking forward to the next part of the Summer term with our enthusiastic learners.
Year 2 Notices...
The Year 2 weekly P.E session is on a Wednesday. The children will need to come into school on a Wednesday in their full P.E kit with a jumper and trainers. They will not be able to get changed in school. As the P.E lesson will be outside an extra bottle of water and sun cream (clearly labelled with your child’s name) would also be a good idea.
Your child will need to bring a labelled water bottle in to school DAILY. We will be sending home these bottles each evening to be washed at home, refilled and then returned to school the following day.
Lunch Boxes and Bags
Please do not send your child into school with a bag, just a lunchbox if required. Thank you!
Please send your child in with a sun hat and water bottle during these warmer Summer days, as we will be encouraging the children to play outside. On sunny days we would advise applying sun cream with the children before school. If you wish the children to top up on sun cream through the day please could you send in a clearly labelled bottle. The children will be applying the sun cream themselves but we will encourage them to do so sensibly. I'm sure they will all be enjoying the sunshine in the following term.
