Welcome to Year 2/3
Here are just some of the things to look forward to this year:
-earning your pen licence
Spring Term 2020
This half term our topic is ‘Amazing Africa.’ The children will be learning about the continent of Africa using geography skills alongside finding out about African music and art. The children will focus their learning on the country of Kenya.
Over the half term the children need to complete the African based activities from the sheet at home.
To support the children’s learning in this topic, we have invited ‘Take Part in the Art’ to come in and work with the children to perform African drama and dances.
On Thursday 26th March, an Education Group will be coming into school to work with the children to make African Masks and to perform African music with African Drums. You can find out about the group by looking at the website www.educationgroup.co.uk. At the end of the day, the children will be putting on a performance for the rest of the children in school and parents/ carers. There will be a text reminder nearer the time. The PTA have kindly helped to subsidise this ‘Amazing Africa’ day so the cost to parents/ carers will be £5.
Please find below knowledge organisers for this half term.
At St. George’s CE Primary School, we fully understand and support the idea that education and enjoyment go hand in hand. However, our expectations are extremely high for achievement, behaviour and uniform.
Please ensure your child’s PE bag and kit is clearly labelled and consist of:
Red T-shirt, black shorts, plimsolls
Homework is set on a Friday and is due in the following Friday. The homework is fully explained on the sheet.
The spelling test will be done on a Thursday or a Friday.
The children led the Christingle service in church and they thoroughly enjoyed making their Christingles back at school.
They can now explain what each part of the Christingle represents.
