PERIDOT – Year 2

Year 2 Peridot Class Photo

Welcome!

In Peridot our class teachers are Mrs H Croud and Mrs H Thwaite and our teaching assistant is Ms J West. We are a Year 2 class.

In Year 2, our topic this half term is Short Stories.

Children have also been studying other historical events, such as The Great Battle of Hastings, and learning all about William the Conqueror. In the coming weeks we will be looking more at castle structures and using what we find out to plan our own castles.  We will be using construction kits as well as junk materials within our work to piece together our own model castles.

Our Science project is Everyday Materials.  Children will be taught all about the uses of materials such wood, plastic, metal, glass, brick, paper and cardboard and look at what makes them suitable for making certain objects. They will also explore how objects made of some everyday materials can change shape.

The following sessions will be available this term:

  • Maths boosters to help improve their basic Maths skills.
  • Bugclub / reading club over lunch to help improve their comprehension skills.
  • Homework club to provide additional opportunity to complete homework.

Peridot class have PE every Monday and Friday and all children need to bring their own PE kits (black shorts/leggings and a white T-shirt).

They will also have Drumming Workshops every Thursday for Music.

Finally, if you have any problems or there is anything we can help you with please feel free to come in and see me.
