Welcome to Year Two

PE

Our PE days will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please come to school wearing your PE clothes, with long hair tied up and earrings removed.

Homework

Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars homework will be set weekly. On Spelling Shed please aim to reach the Royal Bee level each week. On Numbots/TT Rockstars, please aim for 5 minutes each night. On My Maths, children should aim for 100% but if they get less than 75% try have another go. These platforms are most effective when completed in short bursts throughout the week. Log ins for these will be sent home shortly.

Your child will be sent home with a reading book and a reading record. Please ensure your child is reading their home reading book for at least 10 minutes each night and that you comment within their reading records. Books will be changed once a week.

Additionally, the children will receive 10 spellings each week for them to practise at home. These again can be practised in small bursts.

There will also be some extra tasks that will be set on Teams which can be completed throughout the half term. There will be a choice of 6, however, the children will only need to complete 4 of these throughout the half term. You may want to send a photo or video of your work to show you have completed the task

 

Mrs Winder will teach on a Monday morning for Miss Cox’s planning time.

The Year 2 Team are available to speak to you at the door for minor queries, but should a longer appointment be required, please contact the office.

Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 2!

We hope you had the best summer filled with lots of fun. We are so excited to have you back in school and cannot wait for all the fun learning we are going to be doing together.

Our history for this half term is The Great Fire of London. We will recap our knowledge of London and see what facts we can recall. We will look at what London was like at the time of the fire compared to now. We will also explore how the fire started and how the fire spread through the city. In English, we will be exploring different traditional tales and will even be looking at some traditional tales with a twist. I wonder what traditional tales you know of already and if you have a favourite? In phonics we will be recapping our phonics sounds and will continue to apply these in our reading and writing. In Maths, we will start the term by developing our understanding of place value and number knowledge.

We have a lot of exciting lessons planned for you and hope that you are excited to get to learning in school - we are looking forward to getting to know you even more this year!

Miss Cox, Ms Bray, Mrs Imran and Mrs Winder
