Welcome to Cedar Class!

Teacher: Miss Setherton

TA: Mrs Higgins

Welcome to Year 2. I hope you had a wonderful summer and are settling well into the new term. We have an exciting year ahead of us, with some wonderful topics, trips and adventures heading our way in the next 6 terms. Keep checking our class page for more information.

This year our PE days are:

Monday – Games

Wednesday – Ballet

Thursday – Gym

Spellings will be sent home each Friday. Please help your child to practice these at home. There is a big focus on spellings as we enter Year 2, so this will really support their fluency in writing. We will also be sending books home each day. Please read regularly together as this will build your child’s confidence and strengthen their love of reading.

I feel very lucky to be teaching such a caring, positive and hard-working group. Keep up the good work Cedar Class, and together we’ll go far.

Our topic this term is all about famous people. We will start this term with a red carpet event, where we can all show off our glamorous outfits and have a walk down the red carpet. Throughout the topic we will be learning about famous celebrities of the past and present and deciding which one is our favourite. We will also be finding out about ourselves in our Science work, including what we need to survive and stay healthy. In Art we will have fun creating our own portraits in the style of famous artists and in DT designing our own famous cars.

Will we meet a celebrity on our journey?
