Welcome to Year 2!
Our Class Page
Welcome to the class page for Year 2! We are proud to be a class of polite, hard-working children who try our best in all aspects of school life.
Throughout this year, we will build on the experience, knowledge and skills we gained in Year 1 to secure the Key Stage 1 standards. This will help us prepare for the new challenges we will face as we move into Key Stage 2 next year.
With the help of Miss Buckley and Miss Kenny we have had a fantastic start to the year and are looking forward to building on our Year 1 learning to reach new standards in Year 2.
Please have a look around our class page to find out what we are learning about in each subject!
What are we learning about this half term?
In our Project lessons this term, we will answer the question ...
'Can a disaster ever turn into an opportunity?'
Our lessons will focus on The Great Plague of 1665-1666 and how many believe it was put to an end by the Great Fire of London.
Here's what we'll be learning about in each subject this half term:
Your child will now bring a banded book home with them every day from school. They will also bring a Phonics book if they are still receiving Phonics support in school. Please read their book with them as often as you can and write how they've done in their reading record. Children who read three times a week are rewarded in school each Friday, and there is a prize once your child has read 30 times at home!
Here are some questions you could ask your child to check their understanding:
Where did ...?
When did ...?
Who did ... ?
Why was ... feeling ... ?
Why did ... happen?
Why did ... say ... ?
What happened when ...?
How does ... make you feel?
Maths homework is sent out on a Friday and should be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. Spellings are sent out on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday in school.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. We will do indoor PE on a Tuesday and outdoor on a Wednesday, so please ensure your child has appropriate kit for all weather as we move into the colder months.
