Welcome to Year 2! This page will be updated with news and photographs of our work and fun in school so please come back regularly to find out what we have been up to!
The children have made a great start to the new academic year. We have been thrilled with their fantastic attitude to their learning and their enthusiasm in class. We have started the year with stories from our summer holidays. We have enjoyed reading what the children have been doing. In our maths learning we are focusing on Place Value. The children have enjoyed partitioning numbers and saying what each number in a 2 digit number is worth. They can say for example that 22 is 2 tens and 2 ones and they can say 22 is 20 + 2. You can practise this with children at home or whilst out and about, for example, with door numbers or numbers in and around the house. We have also enjoyed lots of counting practice! We have also started our Autumn Term topic 'The Great Fire of London' - the children have already wowed us with their knowledge!
Homework will be set at the beginning of the term using a homework grid. The children will bring these home this week and the book should be returned each Monday to be marked, the books will then be returned home by Wednesday.
Spellings will be set at the beginning of the term. Children should learn the spellings for that week and will be tested on a Friday. Please let us know if the children are having any difficulty with these and we can suggest activities that might help or alternatively reduce the number of spellings they have to learn.
Reading - It is expected that children will read two school books at home each week. The children will change these on a Monday. We love to hear about any other reading the children are doing at home such as books they are reading independently or books you are reading to your child so please feel free to record these in their reading record books too!
PE - Children will do PE lessons on a Friday but should have their PE kits in school each day.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate in talking to any of the team.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to an exciting learning journey this year!
Well Done to Year 2!
Year 2 and Year 4 have been working together and sharing their learning! Year 2 have shared their learning all about the Great Fire of London - a topic many of the Year 4 children remembered from their time in Year 2 - whilst the Year 4 children have been teaching us all about deforestation!
Year 4 shared their amazing Powerpoint presentations with us which taught us that the world's rainforests are under threat from deforestation. This deforestation is not only terrible for the land, it has a devastating effect on the wildlife that the rainforests house.
Year 2 are joining Year 4 in raising money to protect these animals and to do more to stop the effects of deforestation. We will be holding a cake sale on Friday 16th March to raise money for this worthwhile cause! Thank you for you support!
