Welcome to Comets

Dear Parents,

I hope that you and your family had a lovely half term and are ready for the exciting term ahead! The children worked so hard last term and have settled into Year 2 brilliantly. They loved our Pirate topic and we had a fabulous finish with our Pirate day, thank you so much for providing such super costumes and joining us for the treasure hunt!

This term will be busy with our new topic– Can a Polar Bear live in Africa? The children will be learning all about the world’s seven continents. Show and Tell will be based around this this term so if the children have been to or researched somewhere exciting we look forward to hearing about it!

Here you will find all the important information for this term. Please do not hesitate to book an appointment if you wish to come in and discuss anything further.
