Pine - Year 2

Teacher: Miss O'Connor

Additional Support: Miss Gregory, Ms Horsewell

On 7th February 2018 Year 2 parents were invited to a meeting held at 2.45pm to discuss the statutory testing of Year 2 pupils at the end of the year.  These assessments are commonly known as SATs.

If you have any further questions or queries please speak to your child's class teacher, Miss Cartwright or Mrs Marshall and we will be happy to talk to you.

 

The following presentation was given.

 

Welcome back! I hope you had a good winter break and a good rest! We have got lots of fun planned for this term with our new topic polar lands. As well as looking at the area of the Arctic and Antarctica, we will be looking at the animals that live there, the climate and explorers who have ventured there. We can't wait to show you all the things we learn!

Welcome back, after half term! We hope you had a relaxing break and are ready for another fun packed term!! Our topic this term is Kenya, and we have been looking at the story- Lila and the secret of rain. We have also been learning lots about the country, the people and Swahili. Ask us all about it at home!

We had such a great time exploring the Greenwich Ecology park, pond dipping and meeting all the creatures we share our borough with!

A very warm welcome to the new Pine Class!!! I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer, ready for a year full of learning and fun! 

I am very excited for our topic this term- 'We've got the whole world in our hands' where we will be looking at animals and areas that have been affected by climate change, farming and deforestation and what we can do to make a difference and create a more sustainable future! We hope that at home, you can support the ideas and simple tricks we will look at to reduce our carbon footprints!
