Hello and welcome to Year 2
This year our classes are named after inspirational people from around the world. We are Seacole and Braille.
We will be using their examples to reinforce the ides behind our ASPIRE learning attributes
- attention, support, perseverance, improvement, reflection and exploration.
Mary Seacole was born in 1805. Her father was
Scottish and a soldier. Her mother was Jamaican and
was a nurse. Mary travelled to help soldiers that
had been injured during the Crimean War. She often
used herbs and remedies she made herself to help
their wounds. Mary returned to England after the war
and wrote a book about her life. She died in 1881.
Louis Braille was born in 1809 in France. He was a teacher
and inventor of a system of reading and writing for use by the blind or visually impaired. His system remains nearly the same to this day, and is known worldwide simply as
braille. He died in 1852.
Reading - New reading books will be sent home on a Monday and we ask they are returned on Friday.
It is vital that your child has regular opportunities to practice their reading, ideally for at least 10 minutes a day. This is to ensure they are exposed to a variety of vocabulary which will support their writing and questioning children about the text will help develop their comprehension skills.
Outdoor PE / Games is on Monday.
Indoor PE / Dance is on Thursday.
