Nightingales

In Nightingales, we are enthusiastic to learn, helpful to each other and we work as a team.

 

Welcome to Nightingales

Welcome to Nightingales’ Class. We are a Year 2 class and our teacher is Miss Ayoub. We also have Mrs Green, Ms Reed, Miss Wilbert, Mrs Caswell and Mrs Wright who help us with our learning. 

Homework

Reading : Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day.  They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books if they have moved onto the Accelerated Reader scheme. Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. 

PE (PE kit)

PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child comes dressed in the appropriate kit on these days.

Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed. 

Trips and Visits

In Years 1/2, we organise a range of trips and visits, each year. The aim of our trips is to supplement our children’s learning for that half-term. They give our children real-life contexts for their topics.  We are currently following cycle B.

As part of our R.E topic ‘What makes a place special for Christians?’ the children will go on a tour of a local church. 

The children will visit the Railworld Wildlife Centre in order to find out more about locomotives and the history of trains.

As part of our ‘Creatures Great and Small’ topic, the children visit the Safari Park to find out about different animals.

Cycle B

Summer 2 – Hunstanton Beach

In preparation for learning about ‘Muslim Special Places’, the children will visit and tour the inside of a mosque.
