Autumn 1 Term 2023

The year 2 staff are so excited to get to know you all better in the Autumn Term!

The staff that you will be working with are Miss Handley (2T), Miss Kavanagh (2L) and Miss Johnston (2P) as well as Mrs Caines, Miss Darnbrough, Miss Patterson and Mrs Heard. On a Monday afternoon you will be taught by either Mr Shilton, Señora Cameron or Miss Comrie.

Please can children come to school in PE kits on Mondays (for fundamental movement skills) and Thursdays (for football). PE will be outside as often as possible while the weather is still nice enough.

Please also make sure that children bring a water bottle and their book bag (with their reading books and reading record) to school every day

Please view our Curriculum Meeting 2023 tab which has videos that share information about Year 2. This will include information on homework, assessment and daily routines. 

This half-term our geography topic is 'What is Interesting About Nottinghamshire?'. Have a look at our knowledge organiser below! Our science topic is 'Living Things and their Habitats', See our knowledge organiser below for more information about the key facts we want your children to learn by the end of the unit.

Every week, our timetable will be available at the bottom of this page.
