Year 2 - Penguin Class

Welcome to Penguin Class. Our class teacher is Mrs Read

The focus for our learning in Term 2 is around our geography enquiry question of 'Why don't penguins need to fly?'. We will be looking, in particular, at Antarctica, it's environment and animals that are able to survive there.  In our English lessons, we will be writing a diary based on Robert Falcon Scott who was a famous Antarctic explorer.  At the start of the term we will be having a visit from Darcey Holmes, who will be telling us all about her expedition to Antarctica!

During Term 2, our P.E days will be on Mondays and Fridays.  Please make sure your child has their kit in school on these days.  They will require a pair of shorts, a P.E t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers. As the weather gets colder, your child might prefer jogging bottoms for our outside P.E on Monday afternoons.  Our Forest School days will be on alternate Tuesdays. You will have received a letter with the dates but please just ask if you aren't sure.  Please make sure your child brings their Forest School kit in with them on these days.

Home learning is sent home every week on Fridays and should be returned by the following Thursday.  You will find six activities in the homework book.  Your child can select one of these to complete each week.  Children are also encouraged to read every day at home and receive Dojo points when they do this.

If you ever have any concerns or questions please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am at the classroom door before and after school or, alternatively, you can email me on the Class Dojos.
