About the Class - Year 2 Mursley
The Year 2 Teachers are Mrs Wheeldon and Mrs Martin and Mrs Underwood is our TA. The Children are taught separately for English and Maths and combined with Year 1 in the afternoons for the other subjects. We are supported by a Graduate Trainee or Learning Assistant. During assembly each week we celebrate the children's achievements with a "Star of the Week" award, "Work of the Week" award and a "Presentation" award. The children are also awarded raffle tickets for other outstanding things that they do; this could be anything from helping a friend in need, to using excellent listening skills.
Every Friday the children are lucky enough to go to the 'Forest School' where they learn about nature at first hand and sometimes enjoy a hot chocolate and biscuit whilst in the wood!
We are very fortunate at Mursley to have a large and beautiful school field and all children bring a pair of wellies to school so that we can utilise it at playtimes and during lessons whenever the weather is suitable. We also have a large array of playground toys and games.
In the summer term, children begin swimming lessons which are held at Swanbourne House School as part of PE curriculum.
Year 2 have recently taken part in a 'Science Fair' organised by the Royal Latin School. They were able to make bath bombs, exploding canisters and their own bouncy balls. Great fun was had by all.
