Welcome to Year Two
Our PE days will be Thursday and Friday. Please come to school wearing your PE clothes, with long hair tied up and earrings removed.
Homework will be set on Teams on a Friday and is due in the following Friday, therefore a week to complete it. We will use MyMaths and Spelling Shed to set weekly assignments. I would suggest completing these in short bursts throughout the week – particularly Spelling Shed so that the spellings are maintained. We also still have access to Numbots and TT Rockstars. As TT Rockstars will be fairly new, please take some time to explore this. This is a great opportunity for children to revisit key number facts and increase their confidence and fluency. The login details are the same for both Numbots and TT Rockstars.
In addition to the usual online platforms, I will also be setting an additional learning challenge on Teams which links to current learning. This could be a quiz, a video to watch or a task to complete. Any work related to this can be sent back through the assignment as done so during lockdown. The children will be shown in class as a reminder on how to access the homework. If you require any login details, please do not hesitate to ask.
Also ensure your child is reading their home reading book and that you comment within their reading records. Books will be changed once a week.
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.
The topic 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!
