Welcome to Year 2 ‘Badger Class’
We said goodbye to Miss Chantry at the end of term 2. Our teachers from the beginning of term 3 are Mrs Forbes and Mr Farnell, and our teaching assistant is Mrs Pitcher. We are all excited about the forthcoming year and want to achieve our very best. We are looking forward to sharing our learning with you all on our class page! There is a copy of the ‘Welcome Presentation to Parents’ from Mrs Forbes and Mr Farnell below.
As part of our ‘Pirates’ topic last term, we visited Chatham Dockyard on Friday 22nd September. The Education Centre provided us with a ‘Pirates and Shipwrecks’ package. The children went on board a pirate ship, met pirates and learnt about how pirates lived years ago. They also found out about the life of Grace Darling and helped to make their own skipping rope. See below to access some photos from the trip together with two descriptions of what we did written by Year 2. There is also a separate set of photos (Land Ahoy) of some of the children wearing pirates hats and lighthouse they made.
Our topic this term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures so we will be finding out about different textures, reading Roald Dahl’s ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine and creating our own potions.
Also available below is our latest newsletter together with newsletters for previous terms. There are also photos of us dressed up as our favourite book characters when we celebrated World Book Day – can you recognise which ones?
