YEAR 2Mr Routledge and Miss Robinson
Spring Term 2019
We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday!
Our Spring term begins with a new topic: In The Night Sky. We will be looking at and learning about the solar system and living things that come out at night.
In English, we start off the term with a whole school writing project with a new book : The Matchbox Diary. We will continue to build our writing skills and will be working hard to improve our spelling, grammar, punctuation and handwriting.
In Maths, we continue with our number work to develop our knowledge on the 4 basic functions and will strive to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables off by-heart.
In Science, our new topic is Everyday Materials. We will be using our scientific knowledge to follow and make our own investigations to help us develop a better understanding of the materials we use and that are around us.
We will have two lessons of PE every week. We are fortunate that we have the fantastic opportunity to be coached in Basketball by a Newcastle Eagles player and have another coach coming in to help us in our Multi-skills this term. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in on a Monday for the week ahead.
Thank you for your continued support
The Year 2 Team
We had fun this morning watching a rehearsal run through of the younger children's talent show. You're all in for a treat.
A huge thank you for all the fantastic homework projects about countries around the world. Grown ups came in to share the brilliant work and some even did a quiz too. Thank you to all those who came in too.
The water fight was a huge success again. The children always look forward to this event and as usual it was great fun. Another fabulous water fight

What an amazing house afternoon we all had making and flying kites. Thank you to everyone who took part.
We worked in teams and were given a hard boiled egg. The task was to drop it from high up but save it from breaking. So we had to protect the egg, wrap it safely and make a parachute to help it reach the ground safely. We worked brilliantly.
We made paper aeroplanes by following some tricky instructions as part of science week and our day on flight.
As part of all the fun of science week, we did the mentos into coke trick. We all got a surprise at what happened. Go B8637F92-806C-40E7-BF3C-C19296A9743B
