Y2 Swimming, by Mr Rickaby

Date: 26th Sep 2017 @ 5:33pm

Dear Parents/Carers,

The children are really enjoying swimming on a Thursday but the morning can be a bit chaotic! In order to ensure a smooth transition to and from Tewkesbury School and more importantly to enable the children to have maximum swimming time please can you help out with the following:

* To make changing easier, children can come to school in a tracksuit or other suitable comfy clothes.

* To save time changing, children will come to school wearing their swimming costume underneath their tracksuit.

Once school starts, myself and Mr Gibson will quickly register the children in the hall before swiftly getting on the bus to Tewkesbury School. If you have any queries please ask myself or Mr Gibson.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Hunt




Y2 Spelling, by Mr Rickaby

Date: 26th Sep 2017 @ 5:32pm

Dear Parents/ Carers

We have decided that it would be less daunting for the children to write 5 sentences using their spelling words instead of 10. It would be great if all 10 words could be included in the sentences but this is optional.

Habitats Information Leaflet, by Mr Rickaby

Date: 18th Sep 2017 @ 8:07pm

On a Monday afternoon the Y2s are taught by Mr Rickaby where we learn ICT/Computing skills through topic work. 

This half term we are learning all about habitats.  Last week we thought about rainforests and jungles and which animals might live there.

This week we had a look at The Arctic and how polar bears, arctic foxes and reindeer are adapted to the cold conditions.  

Click here to see the video we watched in class.

We are making an information leaftet using j2e5.  The children can log into this from home by going to j2e.com and logging in with their school email address and password.  

Today we learnt how to type a capital letter, how to highlight text in order to change font size and colour and how to insert a picture.
