Autumn Term 2017

Autumn Adventures 2017

Our shared theme for the first term with year 2 is based on two books: George Saves the World by Lunchtime and The World came to My Place written by Jo Readman. They show the children how important it is to take care of our planet and we have already discussed where electricity comes from, how compost is made and we have researched into how glass is recycled too.   We hope to visit Acton Scott Working Farm Museum this term, so that the children can experience farming in the past. We will be looking at the work of two artists: Georgia O’Keeffe and Claude Monet. Your child will be working towards creating poppies using paint, clay and recycled materials. Once complete we hope to have a ‘gallery evening’ so that you can enjoy all of the children’s art work.

After the long summer break, I know that you will be anxious to support your child’s reading development as soon as possible and I actively encourage you to read daily with your child. As I get to know your child in the first few weeks I will be assessing their reading level and making any adjustments. Your support and patience at this time is appreciated.
