Beaumanor Hall - July 2016


We had a fantastic time at Beaumanor Hall. The children looked brilliant in their pirate costumes -  as did the staff! The staff at Beaumanor commented on how well behaved and polite our children were. We were VERY proud of them.

 

18 brave souls stayed the night at Beaumanor Hall and enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Well done to the boys, who won the 'most ship-shape' dormitory award and also to all the children who had fun, despite it bucketing it down the following day. There were some VERY wet, muddy children on the bus home!

 

Spring 2

 

Amazing Animals

 

This half term we will be learning all about animals: what they need to keep them happy and healthy, where they live and how to look after our pets. We will write reports about pets and farm animals and create an e-book about nocturnal animals.

We are going to be learning about living and non-living in Science and also what produce comes from animals.

We will learn about the art of Eric Carle, who uses collage to create books about animals and we will try and re-create animal prints from nature.

We will be learning about doubling and halving numbers, multiplication, division and fractions this half term.

As it is Easter this half term, we will also be hearing about the Easter story in R.E

Autumn 2 - Fire!

We are really excited about this term as we have lots of fun and interesting learning happening in year 2!

 

This term we will be starting our class assemblies where we will be showcasing our learning to our friends and families. Each class will take it in turns every Friday and we will be getting a letter to tell our families when it's our classes turn.

 

We will also be learning all about fire safety and will be getting a visit from some real fire fighters in a fire engine!

 

As part of our English and History learning we will be visited by the Partake Theatre company to take part in a play all about the Great Fire of London.

 

Later on in the term we will have our Christmas performance too - Busy Busy Bethlehem. We will be working really hard to learn the songs and our lines for all the different roles.

 

For more details and information on our learning this term please have a read of our newsletter below, we have also attached a list of useful websites that you can use at home to help your child with their learning.

 

Thank you
