Thank you for all of your support with events and fundraising this year. We hope you have a relaxing holiday.

In the spring term we will be looking at special books. For example, a book with lots of memories or a book that has been passed down through the family. We would love children to be able to share their special books with the class during the first week back at school. If you are happy for your child to share their special book at school, please could they bring it in on Thursday 4th January.

Our topic for this coming half-term is “Flaming Fire”. We will be making Tudor houses and your child will need a cereal box turned inside out and flattened. Please send these into school by Monday 8th January.

Over the holidays we would like you   to:-

  •         Wrap   a present
  •         Watch   a seasonal movie
  •         Spend   time with family and friends
  •         Eat   food that you love
  •         Make   somebody laugh or smile
  •         Share   a special book
  •         Play   a board game
  •         And   finally…….come back to school in 2018 well rested and ready to learn.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas   and a Happy New Year.

From

Year 2 Team.

DUE IN Tuesday 7th November   2017

The Year 2 Team hopes you had a   lovely and well deserved half term break.

For our Christmas production this   year we will be holding a musical / pantomime called ‘Pirates vs Mermaids’. To help us with our casting process, we   would like the children to audition to either be a narrator, a pirate or a   mermaid. In good panto fashion, pirates could be girls and mermaids could be   boys. Talk with your child about the fact these might not be their actual   lines for the show and some parts are singing and dancing rather than   speaking and acting.

Please learn off by heart either the   Pirate or Mermaid part

Pirate:   Right lads, first let’s do a quick run through of the correct way to walk   from the plank. Remember, you must tuck and roll into the sea. Tuck and roll.   All clear? Captain Scary Pants, you’re first up.

 

Mermaid: Neptuna,   get the snorkels. Atlantis, get the inflatable rubber rings. Come on   everyone, let’s hit the pool!

Or, be able to read this narrator   part with expression

Narrator:   Avast there landlubbers! I’m here to tell you a tale of swashbuckling pirates   and brave mermaids. Be warned, it is not for the faint hearted. Those of a   nervous disposition should leave now. I was talking to the audience! Are we sitting   comfortably? Good, then let’s begin.

Remember lots of enthusiasm and   emphasis to WOW the judges and audience. Also, you don’t have to provide or   bring in props for the auditions.

SPaG

Tricky words: use, saw, like

Please reinforce these at home by   practising these spellings. You might like to draw a picture to help you   remember the spelling.

Maths Marines

We have been learning how to share   and group using the 2s 5s and 10s tables.
