Year 2@Hewish 2017-18
Term 6 week 7
The end of the school year! The children have had a busy week, yesterday we baked cookies ready to celebrate the end of the year with a tea party in the shade today!
Thank you Year 2 for being such a fabulous class, thank you our lovely messages gifts and cards. We wish you all a very happy and safe holiday and look forward to seeing you as the Year 3 Crew in September!
Term 6 weeks 5 and 6
Thank you to all the children who joined in with the singing at the school fayre, we are very proud of you!
It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents join with us for the 150 Year celebrations this week. The children looked fantastic in their Victorian costumes and had great fun re-enacting a Victorian School day….there was great interest in the cane! As a class the children have decided that they are glad they are at school now and not in Victorian times!
We were very proud of their beautiful lavender bags, which sold out quickly! Next week the children will decide how to spend the money raised from their enterprise sale.
Have a lovely weekend.
Term 6 week 4
This week we have been looking at directional language, half and quarter turns, clockwise and anti-clockwise and as a challenge what these would be in degrees!
In English we continued to read the text ‘Halibut Jackson’. The children have been advising the character of ‘Halibut’ on his decision making.
In PE this week we have had cricket training and enjoyed trying maypole dancing. Children still need a full PE kit in school for the last two weeks please, thank you.
It has been another hot week! Thank you for again for ensuring your children have been coming to school ‘sun safe’ with hats, water bottles and sun cream applied.
We look forward to seeing you at the school fayre later. I’m sure you’ve heard the children rehearsing their songs at home!
Term 6 week 3
What a hot week! Thank you for ensuring your children have been coming to school ‘sun safe’ with hats, water bottles and sun cream applied.
It has been a busy sporting week, with ‘multi-skills’ on Monday afternoon and sports day on Thursday. It was lovely to see all the children take part and be supported by so many families, thank you.
In maths we have been using rulers and metre sticks to measure different objects, measuring in centimetres and metres, comparing height and shoe size.
In English we have introduced a new text ‘Halibut Jackson’. The children have been predicting what they think might happen in the story.
The Year 2 children at Hewish and West Wick have been asked to perform some of the songs they learnt for the music festival at the Summer Fayre, next Saturday. They have a letter in their book bags today.
Have a lovely weekend.
Term 6 Weeks 1 & 2
It seems hard to believe that we are already in the second week of our last term. We have been continuing to use our key text ‘The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch’ and this week we’ve been writing a letter as if we were one of the naughty seagulls. In maths we have been looking at statistics.
We said goodbye to Miss Haspell on Thursday, we spent the morning preparing for a picnic in the field, making fruit kebabs, cookies and cornflake cakes. We wrote instructions on how to make the different items.
We are very busy learning lots of songs for the Year 2 Music festival which is next Thursday, 21st June. If you haven’t yet completed the parent pay permission, could you please do so in order that we can take everyone.
Next Thursday morning, we also have school photographs before leaving for the music festival at Heronsmoor School. Children need to come into school in uniform please. They may bring something ‘sporty’ to change into after their photographs to wear to the music festival.
