Year 2 Introduction to the Victorians Afternoon
On Monday afternoon, Year 2 started their Historical inquiry into the lives of the Victorians and the reign of Queen Victoria. The children had the afternoon to explore books, role play, create art, and ask questions about the Victorian period. The children were very engaged with this activity and are very excited about learning about how different Victorian children’s lives were.

What are we learning this year?
Please see below our Long Term Plan for Year 2 which outlines our upcoming projects and curriculum aims for the year 2019-2020.

PE will be every Monday and Thursday. The children will also be taking part in daily exercise both inside and outside. Please can you ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school all week. PE kit includes a plain white or white JC t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers. Please send socks if your child is wearing tights. Children will need to have earrings removed for PE lessons.
Water is available to the children throughout the day in the classroom. Please provide them with a named water bottle. These will be sent home daily.
Pine and Willow will be going outside to work in the Outdoor Classroom throughout the Autumn term. Each class will alternate weeks with Willow starting on Friday 13th September. Children will need to bring a set of warm appropriate clothes for the sessions as well as their school uniform for them to get changed back into.
Your child has been issued with a Communication Dairy. We ask that all children read at least three times a week at home and have their diary signed by an adult at home. If you have any questions or queries, please use the diary and ask your child to let us know that there is a message for us.
Each half term, your child will be sent home with a 'Homework Grid' sheet. Our expectation is that the children complete the grey boxes weekly, and choose one other piece of homework each week as an optional piece of work. Children may bring in any completed homework at any point throughout the term.
This half terms Homework Grid is below:
Just a reminder that toys should not be brought into school.
The Year 2 classrooms are fully equipped with the stationery that the children will need. We encourage children not to bring anything to school that is valuable to them, as we cannot account for things going missing.
