Summer 1 - Who am I?
This half-term we will be looking at plants as our topic is science based. Here is our topic web for further information as to what the children will be learning.
In our music lessons we have been practising composing our own music. We were inspired by a picture of different winter weathers. The rest of our class had to guess which picture we had composed our music for. Can you guess what weather our music portrays
Spring 2 - What really happened once upon a time?
This half term we will be finding out what really happened once upon a time linking to the story 'The Three Little Pigs'. Take a look at our topic web to find out more about what our children will be learning over the next six weeks.
Spring 1 - How did that happen?
This half-term we will be looking at past and present events in Stanley and beyond! Here is our topic web for further information as to what the children will be learning.
Children In Need
On Friday 18th November, we dressed up in spots to celebrate Children In Need. We raised a total of £216.26. Thank you to everyone for your contribution!
Y2C and Y4A got together to make friendship bracelets and meet new people as part of Friendship Week here in school. The children worked very well together and all had a smile on their faces. Just what we wanted to see!
Y2C have also read the story 'I want a friend' by Tony Ross. In this story it shows what it takes to be a good friend and how to help new children settle into a school. The children also joined in with the song 'What makes a good friend?' They found that a good friend is someone who is helpful, friendly, takes care of others, plays nicely, plays games and lets others join in and finally someone who talks to you.
Catchgate's famous faces!
We came back from collective worship to a red carpet welcome! We then got to take part in our very own Oscar ceremony and famous faces quiz. There was even a photo opportunity for the paparazzi!
Autumn 2 - When will I be famous?
This half term our topic is all about famous people from the past and present. Here is the topic overview of the work we will be covering. Use this to support learning at home.
Our topic for Autumn 1 is 'Whose foot print is this?' This is a Science based topic. For more details see attached topic overview. Please encourage your child to do their own research into areas they are particularly interested in. Your child is welcome to bring into class anything of interest they find out about the topic.
P.E is on a Monday morning for Y2B and a Wednesday morning for Y2C. Please make sure your child has their P.E kit.
On a Friday morning your child will be taking part with Little Dribblers which is with Antony from the Sunderland Foundation of Light.
Swimming for Y2C is a Tuesday morning at 8:45am and for Y2B Wednesday morning at 8:45am. Please bring your child to the swimming pool where a member of staff will be waiting for you. If your child is at Breakfast Club, a member of staff will collect your child from the hall and walk to the swimming pool to meet the other children.
If your child can not attend swimming please let a member of staff know.
Please send book bags in every day even if your child has not finished reading their book and if your child has read their book please can you comment on what they did well and what they might need support on so we can work on this at school.
Homework and spellings are sent home every Friday. Please return homework at the latest Thursday of the following week, allowing us time to check and set the next week's homework. If homework is not brought back to school by the following Thursday, your child will be kept in at break and lunch till it is done.
If you have any questions, please leave an email at the bottom of this page to your child's class teacher and they will get back with you as soon as they can.
