Hello! We are Year 2 Alderson. Our teachers are Mr Smith and Mrs Jaques.
This term our topic is called “How Does Your Garden Grow?" (Plants) and we will be learning new skills, as well as consolidating previously learnt skills. Our topic has a strong Science focus, with practical activities playing a key role in our learning. We will be exploring our surrounding environment and looking at different types of plant-life. Gardening will be a regular activity in this topic, so expect lots of messy uniforms (we'll try our best to keep clean!!). We will be performing lots of experiments to develop our scientific thinking and discussion skills.
Our P.E. days are on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. We will need a P.E. kit (white t-shirt, black shorts, white socks and black pumps or trainers) which is better if we keep it in school all the time until the end of the half-term.
Our trim trail day is a Monday afternoon. We will need trainers or sturdy outdoor pumps to go on the trim trail. We can leave our trainers at school in the cloakroom or take them home on a daily basis.
A water bottle is useful as all this hard work makes us thirsty and water helps our brain work.
We get English and Maths homework on a Friday and we need to bring it back the following week.
If anybody has any questions or concerns Mr Smith is always happy to help.
