Welcome to St Peter's Year 2 class page.
Our names are Miss Lightfoot (Y2 teacher) and Miss Heapy (our class teaching assistant). We work together as a team to make sure every day in school is as enjoyable for the Year 2 children as we can possibly make it. We will also be doing lots of fun sports lessons with Mr Lord and music with Mrs Reynolds.
We are looking forward to getting to know your children and watching their development this year. You can see below our end of year expectations for your children. Please keep a close watch on this page for new photographs and snap-shots of your children's wonderful work and learning!
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays, but please make sure children have their PE kits in school every day, as they might sometimes get an extra session!
Please make sure children read every night at home and their reading record is signed and kept in their reading bag at all times in school. Children will change their books two days a week. These days are detailed on the front of their reading packet.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Lightfoot and Miss Heapy.
Great Things We Have Done At Home!
In Year 2, we love to celebrate the extra learning that you have done at home! This can be anything from extra spelling practice, to number, to creative work! Keep an eye out below for achievements that could be added each week!
This half term, we have made a fantastic start on our castles topic! We used sponges and paint to create a textured brick effect for the Keep and Bailey castles. We shared our castles with a friend and wrote down what parts of a castle we had added. So far, we have learned about keeps, moats, drawbridges and defense mechanisms.
At St Peter's, we are very enthusiastic about music. In Year 2, we have been learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood through music. We have used vocals, musical instruments, body percussion and dancing to create a team performance. Take a look at us enjoying our performances below!
To celebrate the end of a wonderful Castles topic, both Y2L and Y2B held a medieval banquet! We ate like rich Lords and Ladies, listened to medieval music and even performed a medieval dance. It was a very exciting day! Take a look at some of the photos below.
We have been learning about Judaism and the traditions in their religion. We even made some of our own Challah bread. This is a traditional sweet bread that Jewish people eat when celebrating with their family.
