PE Lessons


Year 2 have PE on Wednesday AND THURSDAY. Children should  bring their PE kit into school so they can get changed for the lessons.

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red). 

Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour. No hoodies are to be worn for PE. 


If you wish to contact the class teacher in regards to your child's learning, please do so on the class email addresses, these emails are monitored once a week during term time only. They are a useful way to share non-urgent but useful information that does not require an immediate response:

Mrs Sullivan: newyork@shirehampton-jun.bristol.sch.uk

Miss Athanasis: toronto@shirehampton-jun.bristol.sch.uk

For urgent matters either see the class teacher at the start or end of the school day or contact the school office.


Term 3 Overview

Term 3 has been filled with fun, hard work, and great progress for our children in year 2. We started off the term with poetry week where the children created impressive poems, boasting about themselves. In our science lessons we have been discovering fascinating facts and information about living things and their habitats. We invited parents to join our practical investigation, whereby we visited the green space and created bug hotels out of bio-degradable materials. In Geography, we have been learning how to use atlases, maps and compasses. As well as all of this, we loved Brilliant Bristol week, which gave us the opportunity to celebrate our fantastic city. We are looking forward to an even more successful Term 4!
