St. Clare and St. Francis

 

Welcome to the Summer Term in Year Two

This is an important term and we will be working at full throttle.

Fasten your seat belts!

 

The Year Two teachers are still

Ms Butler in St Clare's Class and Ms Spanou in St Francis Class.

The Teaching Assistant, on Thursdays and Fridays only, is Ms Desir.

Support staff are Mrs Ogunwole, Ms Pat and Mr Raphael.

 

 

We had a wonderful time at Walton-on-the-Naze 

Please look at the gallery below

 

 

Thank you to all the Parents/Carers that came to see the end of year plays.

We had a wonderful time rehearsing so we hope you all enjoyed the performances.

 

St. Francis performed the Moon Thieves and

St. Clare's performed The Lonely Beast.

Please look at the gallery below

 

 

 

 

We had an educational trip to Alexandra Palace on 15th June. Children  participated in an orienteering activity and design and technology sessions, making an 'Insect Hotel' and a wonderful Victorian toy called a thermoform. 

We learned a lot about flowers and insects on our trip to Tottenham Marshes.

Please look at the gallery below. 

 

Our visits to Kensington Palace were also great fun and very educational.

Have a look at the display boards in the cloakroom areas to see a little of what we learnt.

Please look at the gallery below.

 

 

Our IPC Topic for this term is

 Dressing Up

St Clare's class brought costumes to school on Friday and wore them at a fashion show in the afternoon. The children with no costume compered the show. It was a wonderful event! Please see the pictures in our gallery.

 

Have you ever seen an elephant in a dress? Or a giraffe in a pair of jeans? Of course not, because unlike animals, only humans wear clothes. Clothes are an important part of our lives. They can keep us warm (or cool). We can wear different colours and designs and change them for different occasions, we can follow the latest fashions – and even make them ourselves! So what do the clothes you wear say about you?

 

 

Our Science topic for this term is

Materials


Homework is given out on Fridays and is due in on Wednesdays. If there are any problems with understanding the homework please see the class teacher or other adult on Mondays.


Please remember to practise reading with an adult every evening and to bring your reading books and reading record books into school every day.

You also need to bring your spelling book every Monday, to write your new spelling words down.
And don't forget your spelling test on 
Fridays

You need to learn your words:
Look, Cover, Write, Check!

 

 

PE

Children need to bring the correct kit for PE: a white top and blue or black shorts with plimsolls or trainers.

Kit should be brought to school each Monday and taken home on a Friday to be washed.

 

 

Please practise counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s when you have a spare moment at home. Parents and carers can help the children to understand money and practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, by giving them the opportunity to count up your loose change!


We will be concentrating on partitioning 2 - digit numbers into their tens and units in order to make it easier to work with them in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Parents please do come and talk to the teacher if you need tips on helping your child. 

Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites! And don't forget Purple Mash - lots of fun activities to keep you busy! 

 

 

 

Don't forget to log onto Reading Egg to read lots of exciting books and to play games to help you with your reading and writing.

Kensington Palace

We had such a fantastic day learning about Queen Victoria. We listened to extracts from Queen Victoria's diary, walked around the palace and acted out key events in her life.

Westminster Abbey

We went on a pilgrimage to Westminster Abbey. We learnt about King Edward the Confessor and we made badges in his memory. For more pictures and information, look at our displays in each class's cloakroom area.

SPURS here we come...

St. Francis were rewarded for having the best attendance in the school so far this year. We were very lucky to go to Spurs to hear stories in different parts of the stadium. We had such a wonderful time listening to the different stories read by young people and the great story teller Tony Dallas.

Tony Dallas...the wonderful story teller!

Fire Safety Plan:

1. Practise your fire plan whenever you can

2. When you hear an alarm, get out quick, safe from harm

3. Touch the door, so you're sure (if the door is hot it is not safe to open)

4. On your way out, give everyone a shout

5. Close the door for 20 minutes more 

6. Crawl under the smoke, so you don't choke

7. Don't hide, go outside

8. Call 999 - you will be fine

Fire Safety

Fire Safety  1 You must call the fire brigade if there is a fire.
Fire Safety  2
