In Year Two we start to feel very grown up as we are working more independently, learning cursive writing, doing really hard sums with units, tens and hundreds and studying interesting topics about Early People and the Ice Age, Christopher Columbus and the Aztecs. However, we still have time for a lot of fun: drawing, colouring, painting, making things and generally enjoying all the different activities a school such as ours has to offer.
I like the class atmosphere to be relaxed, yet hard working. I encourage the children to express themselves, share their interests and knowledge with all of us in the class.
I believe in a friendly, open environment where boundaries are clearly demarcated, but within which all children have the freedom to learn, develop and enjoy themselves without hindrance.
Year 2 wrote letters to each other. They practised correcting and re-drafting their letters before re-writing them. They addressed the envelopes and put stamps on and posted them.
They then looked at the franking on the envelopes when they were delivered.
'We enjoyed opening and reading the letters from our friends!'
