Autumn 1

Are you a Born Survivor?

During this half term in Year 2 we will be  learning all about famous explorers past and present. The children will pretend to be Robert Falcon Scott in the Antarctic, learn songs about Neil Armstrong and visit the local woods to explore just like an explorer.  They will learn about Christopher Columbus and Ellen McCarthy, test the strength of their own ships and even race them too.

Welcome to 2AM

Welcome to our class page!

Working in 2AM this year are Mrs Murphy, Mrs Austin-Peregrine and Mrs Cooper.  We are really enjoying working with the children and are so excited about the year ahead!

This year the teaching will be shared. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Mrs Murphy will be teaching and on Thursday and Friday Mrs Austin-Peregrine will be teaching.


PE will be on Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon and the children will need their PE kit to be in school everyday please. Please make sure your child also has a coloured t-shirt, according to their house team colour and warmer clothes, eg. tracksuit for going outside.


Please listen to your child read every night and record this in their reading record.  Similar to last year, the reading books will be changed a couple of times a week, once it is finished. If your child’s book isn’t changed, please encourage them to re-read the book again to develop their confidence, fluency and comprehension skills.  It would really help us if you could write down when the book is finished too so we know when to change it.

Please make sure your children come to school with their book bag and reading record/book each day so we can listen to them read in school too.

If you would like to ask any questions or see any of us, then please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Murphy and Mrs Austin-Peregrine
