Welcome to class 2W!
Our class teacher is Mrs Wilson. If you have any questions or you would like to talk to her about anything, she is on the KS1 playground before and after school every day,
In 2W, we aspire to give our children every opportunity, so that they can achieve their full potential. We always try our best and help each other in lessons when other people are struggling. We provide the children with enriched and interesting Enquiry topics that engage and encourage the children to form a love of learning.
So far, we have learnt about: What if the Beatles were on X Factor? What if you could go back in time at Christmas? What if Paddington Bear was lost in Newcastle? What if you could be an artist or an inventor?
Currently we are working the topic question: What if you could live in India? In this topic we have been practising an Indian dance called Bhangra that includes lots of arm and foot movement that is all coordinated. The children have really enjoyed practising this and are looking forward to the next topic.
At the end of half terms, we enjoy having parents and carers come into school and see what their children have been learning about from their children’s perspectives. The children really look forward to this and enjoy showing off their work to their parents as much as possible.
In 2W, we also look to ensure the children are the best that they can be by making sure they know the right way to behave and conduct themselves.
Everyone in 2W is encouraged to believe in themselves and they will achieve their potential.
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 2 curriculum plans can be found here.
Each half term we have a learning reflection event to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents and carers are invited into school so that we can show them what we have been learning.
Parents and carers in 2W are also connected to school through ‘Seesaw’. This means that they can enjoy watching their children’s progress every day.
In Year 2, we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all by clicking on this link: GCPS Learning Habits
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and store it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – children need their reading book and reading diary in school every day.
PE – children need their PE kit in school every day. PE kit consists of a white t- shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/sand shoes.
Homework – Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning.
