We will be attending a swimming session at Spiceball Leisure Centre every Friday. Please ensure that your child has a complete swimming kit including a towel and a swimming hat as well as a pair of trunks (non baggy) for the boys and a swimming costume for the girls. This should be in a separate bag. Please make sure that your child removes their jewellery before school on this day.
We have one PE lesson every week in Year 1.
Indoor PE kit: Hardwick polo t-shirt and black shorts.
Outdoor PE kit: Tracksuit bottoms and a top with sensible trainers.
Please ensure that girls have their hair tied and up and are not wearing any jewellery.
PE days may change so your child should have their PE kit in school at all times.
Term 1: Castles
Year 2 kick started their Castles topic off with a trip to Warwick Castle. We had great fun walking up to the towers and watching a trebuchet show. Thomas did a great job navigating us around the Castle using the map!
Children in Need
The whole school took part in a day of fundraising for Children in Need in November. We dressed up in spots, played fun activities on the playground and Andrea made some delicious Pudsey biscuits for lunch. Thank you to Sophie and Hayden our Year 2 School Council members who helped to arrange the day and raise lots of monney for this great charity.
In Term 2 we completed lots of research about The Great Fire of London. We learned lots of interesting facts and finished the topic off by re-creating the fire using models we made for homework.
Year 2 were the star performers in this year's nativity. The story looked at the different ways that countries celebrate Christmas around the world. I'm sure that you will all agree it was a great performance, and Emilia stole the show with her beautiful solo!
Term 3: Pets
This term we have had some special visitors to our classroom...in the form of two very sweet guinea pigs called Bubble and Squeak! Year 2 have had the responsibilty of feeding, cleaning and looking after them for a whole term...and they have done a fantastic job!
