British Values   

As part of our British Values in Year 2, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together.  One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes.  We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.

 

Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 2, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning.  We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated.    Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 

 

The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment.  They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a weekly 'Behaviour Star' to celebrate this.

 

We will work together to help one another and to make Year 2 Pine a great class!

Good Work Assembly

 

Homework is given out on Friday and is due back on Tuesday.  This links with learning carried out during the week and is chosen so that children can practise more at home and share their work with you.  Children who do not complete their homework will be expected to finish it at school, usually during playtime.  Please see Miss Nicholson or Mrs Waheed if you have any questions.  During holidays, children are asked to research information for their new theme work.

 

P.E. - Children need to keep their P.E. kit in school.  Please make sure they have black pumps.  Earrings should be removed (before school if children are unable to remove them by themselves), for health and safety reasons.  We do P.E. on Mondays and Thursdays.

Creative Curriculum Themes

Our themes enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  We do link our theme work with our English learning through stories, poems and drama.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.

 

These are our themes for this year:
