Year 2 - Owls

What a super half term we are having! I have been very impressed with how enthusiastic the Owls are in their learning about the Titanic. They were a pleasure to take to SeaCity Museum and behaved very well at all times.  I am grateful to the parents who volunteered their time to help make this trip possible. Thank you for your support.


As always, please feel free to talk to me at the classroom door if you have any questions or concerns. Our next Topic will be the Great Fire of London and we are positive the children will take to this with excitement as well!

Merry Christmas everybody!


After a very successful run of our I'm Gonna Shine performances last week we have been enjoying preparing all of the crafts and decorations for our Winter Fayre. Needless to say, the first ever Foxhills Infants School Winter Fayre was a resounding success! 


Over the Christmas holidays, there are some optional homework activities to complete. These can be worked on throughout the next half term as well as during the holidays and your children will be able to collect some monster points for successful completion of all or some of the activities.


We hope you all have a restful and festive Winter Break and we are looking forward to seeing you again in the New Year - we are back at school on the 6th January and will be assigning parent evening slots to be handed out around then as well.

What a lovely week it has been!


The Year 2 children acted as fantastic tour guides to some parents on Monday on our Open Day. Showing the adults and their little ones around was a big task but we were very impressed with how responsibly they told them all about wonderful Foxhills!


On Tuesday we really enjoyed seeing all the children in colourful clothes for non-uniform day and we really appreciate all of the donations that we had coming in throughout the week. 


Tomorrow there is an exciting dodgeball taster session happening for Key Stage 1 after which there will be a Dodgeball club starting on Thursdays at 4:30pm. 


The spellings for this week ready for Friday can now also be found at the bottom of this page.


As always please don't hesitate to talk to your child's teacher with any concerns or questions.

Happy New Half-Term!


Welcome back to all the wonderful Owls. This term, our Topic is 'To The Rescue!' which was introduced through our fantastic dress up day. The children all had a lot of fun coming as their historical and everyday heroes. We had Albert Einstein, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Earhart, Queen Elizabeth II, astronauts, teachers, vets, nurses, doctors, soldiers, athletes and many more coming through the door. 

This term, the children will learn more about Florence Nightingale and Grace Darling as we discover the different ways in which bravery and perseverance can help you achieve your dreams.


We have already received some completed homework and are looking forward to more (bit by bit - like we wrote in the letter, we are more than happy for the children to keep working on this throughout the term) coming in so we can award some much-deserved monster points!


As always please feel free to come talk to me at the door with any questions or concerns.

Welcome to Owls Class!


Dear children and parents, welcome to Year 2! We hope you all had a great summer break and are looking forward to seeing you all again after the Transition Days. This year, you will be working with myself (Miss Ukena), Mrs Chiverton (Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays), Miss Poole (Thursdays and Fridays) and Mrs Bennett! 


If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to come see me either before or after school or ring the school office for an appointment if you would rather we meet in a more formal setting.
