Welcome to Year 2 and Elm class!
Mr Watson is the class teacher and will be supported by Mrs Beany, Mr Jay and Miss Glendinning.
We have PE every Monday and Wednesday. Please can you ensure that your child's PE kit is in school every day as we sometimes get opportunities to do additional PE lessons on other days.
Your child now has a Reading Record Book so that you can record whenever they read at home. This can be a book from school or one of their own. It would be really helpful if you could record some brief comments to tell us how they have read. This will also be done at school, so that you can check on their progress.
Our library time is on Monday, so please bring your library book back to school on this day to change it.
This year we will be sending home spellings on Monday to practise and learn for a spelling test on Friday. Please can you ensure that you spend some time practising these with your child as this will be extremely beneficial for them.
This term our topic will be 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets' and we will be learning about how castles developed through the ages. To bring this 'learning to life' we will be visiting Norwich Castle to find out about life in castle and meeting costumed characters, who will explain what life was really like living in a castle. As part of this topic we will also be investigating what the best materials are for building a strong fortress and finding out about animals that live underground.

I will also be adding information about our learning and activities that your child can do at home in the Lessons and Topics folders below.
