Another exciting and eventful week at school!
Today prior to our Science, Engineering and Maths week our assembly was led by Ed Brown - a Rocket Scientist, who explained to the children how Satellites are made and launched into space. Ask your child to tell you what they have learned - do they know what materials are used to build them and how are they launched into space.
One of the homework tasks this week is linked to our Science week. The children need to design a seed from space. We have discussed seed dispersal in class and a website link which may be helpful is
The children will be making their ‘seed’ in school next week from recycled materials. If you have any materials at home that might be suitable, please do send them in with your child during the week.
We know many of you have asked for guidance in terms of comprehension questions when reading with your child at home and we are at present putting together a booklet which we will send out next week to give you some ideas. We will also send home a list of spelling words for Year 2 from the New Curriculum.
Our Mothers’ Liturgy was a lovely way to end the week and we were very proud of all the children and they were delighted to celebrate this occasion with you. We hope Mum’s have a restful day on Sunday and the children treat you to breakfast in bed.
Happy Mothers’ Day
The Year Two Team
