Dear Year 2 Parent/Carers,


Shwmae, Mrs Reeves ydw i.  Welcome back, I hope that you had a lovely summer.  It is with great pleasure that as the new year 2 teacher at Gors Community School that I will be teaching your child this year with the support of Miss Pikard.  I have been teaching for seven years in a school in Cardiff where I taught Nursery, Year 4 and Year 5 children.  I am looking forward to the year ahead and hope your child's learning journey with us is fun, successful and memorable.

Into the woods

This term we shall be venturing 'Into the Woods', where we will be learning about the various creatures that live within and around this popular habitat.  As part of this topic we will also be reading a wide selection of fairy tales and creating our own 'twisted' versions of these classic stories.  In ICT we shall be recording news reports based on our fairy tales.


Within  Literacy we shall be reading stories and poems with a woodland theme.  Many of these will be familiar fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.  We will be using the Hansel and Gretel book by Anthony Browne to create our own alternative version from the wiches point of view.  In writing we shall be focusing on using capital letters and full stops correctly and applying our phonic knowledge when spelling unfamiliar words.





Numeracy will be taught through a range of written and practical activities, songs, rhymes and games.  It will involve varied number work, length, 2D and 3D shapes, days of the week/months of the year and data handling.



Knowledge and Understanding

In knowledge and understanding we shall be focused on developing our map skills, our routes around school adn the routes of storybook characters.  We shall also be looking at how the council look after their woods/trees and parks, what happens when trees are cut down?


Parents Meeting

On Wednesday September 13th we will be having our first parent teacher meeting.  This meeting will provide you with an opportunity to meet us in person and discuss expectations for the year ahead.  This will also allow you to ask any questions you may have about the classroom programme.

Year 2 Trip

Our trip this term is to The Gruffalo Trail at Mountain View Ranch where we shall explore, discover, den build and enjoy marshmallow toasting!! It will be an amazing outdoor experience for the children.
