Well done Year 2! (Star of the Week)

Well done to each and every one of you in Year 2 for another brilliant week of home learning. From History, to Maths, to Science, we have loved seeing all of your work and have been so proud of you.

A big well done to Whitney, in Miss Newport’s class for being ‘Star of the Week.’ Miss Newport and the rest of the Year 2 Team have been so proud of all of the work you’ve been doing, right from day one to now!

Another big well done goes to Emilio for being Star of the Week in Miss Jones’ class. It’s fair to say that this boy is an encyclopaedia of knowledge when it comes to Florence Nightingale and we have been so very impressed!

A final big thank you to all of the grown ups for their support with home learning. One week to go!

Have a lovely weekend and we will see you all on Monday :)

Important Information/Return to school survey for pupils

Hello!

We are so excited to welcome all of Year 2 back to school on Monday 8th March. So that we know what you are most looking forward to, we would like you to take the time to fill in this short survey with your child. The Newdale team can then collate any of the information to ensure that we make the transition back to school as easy as possible for your child.

5 House Points will be awarded to each child who completes the survey :) Please note that this is separate to the survey recently sent out to parents.

Important Date: Monday 15th March

Hello Year 2!

At Newdale, we are very lucky to have lots of resources to help support us with our Maths. One program we use across school is, ‘Times Tables Rockstars’. This is introduced in Year 2 as children start to develop their understanding of multiplication and division.

On Monday 15th March, we are launching this across the whole of Year 2. As we unfortunately missed our Pirate Day, we are going all out for a ‘Rockstar Day’ instead! For this day, the children are welcome to come to school dressed as a rockstar. We understand that it is tricky with only essential shopping access in stores but we hope you agree that the children will thoroughly enjoy the day.
