Thringstone Primary School

Tigers

The teacher in Year 2 – Tigers is Miss Concannon and children are also supported by some of our Learning Support Assistants.

At Thringstone we follow a topic and creative based curriculum, using year group objectives from the National Curriculum.  Throughout the year topics are varied to meet the objectives and maximise children’s interest and learning.

We have an open door policy where parents are welcome in school, and this helps forge close links with home.

We expect all children to read regularly at home each week and learn their number bonds and times tables. We also encourage children to carry out weekly homework where they apply their learning, understanding and skills.

Important things your child should have in school:
• A drinks bottle
• A PE bag consisting of any plain T-shirt, a pair of shorts, plimsolls
• A bag to carry a reading record and books
• Appropriate clothing for the weather

Please ensure all your child’s things are named as a lot of school clothing is the same.

Tigers have been having so much fun!

Our topic this term has been ‘Movers and Shakers’. It has been exciting to learn lots of new facts and information about significant artists, monarchs, activists, explorers and scientists from the past.

In PE we have enjoyed improving our attacking and defending skills in invasion games such as football and netball. We have also created our own motifs in Dance. For maths, we have enjoyed using equipment to help us with our learning. We started with a focus on place value, then began using formal methods such as number lines and the column method to support us in our addition and subtraction calculations. We have also been sorting 2D and 3D shapes by their properties.

Many genres have been explored in English, from writing setting descriptions, biographies about the Gruffalo characters and a newspaper report of Baby Bears trip to the moon. In Religious Education we have reflected on the ‘Creation Story,’ explored Islam and created Rangoli patterns for Diwali. Whilst in science we had lots of enjoyment experimenting with forces and learning about living things and their habitats.
