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.
6.9.21 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 Newton is our teacher this year. Mrs Mehers and Mrs Haslam will also be working with us too. You can contact the teachers via Class DOJO.
A little bit about Mrs Newton
I'm Mrs Newton and this is my 10th year at Haslam Park! I love teaching here - the children are amazing. When I am not at our beautiful school I enjoy going on lots of family days out with my two children and husband. What do you like to do at the weekends?
I like going to the park with my children and going on really long walks. I also love going out to restaurants with my friends. I love trampolining and I like to go to Jump Xtreme in Bolton !
My favourite time of year is Summer - I love the sunshine. Do you have a favourite season?
I'm really looking forward to getting to know you guys so much more.
