Haslam Park Primary School

Tuesday and Wednesday  are our PE days.  Please remember to wear your PE kit to school.  

Welcome to Year Two Earhart

 

Our class is named after Amelia Earhart.  Amelia Mary Earhart was an American aviation pioneer and author. Amelia Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was also a fantastic author, writing all about her wonderful and exciting adventures.  We are excited to learn more about this wonderful and inspiring lady.  

 We have really enjoyed learning all about Amelia Earhart. We had so much fun using clues to find out why Amelia was famous. We loved making our own super fast paper aeroplanes too! 

Mrs Haslam is our teacher and she is really excited to be working back in year 2! It is her favourite year!

You can contact her on Class Dojo or speak to her before or after school.
