Year 2 – Elder

Class Teacher: Miss Shoesmith

Hello, and welcome to Year 2 Elder!

I am Miss Shoesmith and will be teaching Year 2 with the help of Mrs Fitzpatrick our Teaching Assistant.

Coming from Year 1 can be quite a scary time so for the first few weeks of school we will be learning the new routines in Year 2 and settling in to the new classroom. It is going to be a very busy year, filled with lots of fun and exciting learning experiences!

Our first topic is ‘Food glorious Food’ where we will be reading the story of James and the Giant Peach. We will visit the local allotments and will learn all about different food sources. We are going to plan and prepare a healthy picnic and invite all the grownups to come and share it with us! We look forward to seeing you there!

After that we will be doing a big science topic based on a fantastic story called ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!’ We will investigate different materials to make a strong, waterproof umbrella! We are also going to make bread when we learn all about the Great Fire of London!

In the spring term, we will have our SATS tests. These are not as scary as they sound! To make sure we are all ready for the SATS it is really important that you read every day at home, practise your spellings and your number Zumba! Please make sure you bring your reading book and diary back to school each day so that it is ready for reading with me or Mrs Fitzpatrick.

I am really excited to be your teacher this year and am looking forward to a fantastic year with you all!
