Support Staff

In Year 2 we have two classes:

 

                      Beech                    Cherry

                 (Miss McLaughlan)            (Mr Moorhouse)

 

Daily - Bring in reading books every day.

 

Monday - Spelling and Times Table Test.

              - Homework due in.

              - New homework sent out on google classroom

 

Monday and Wednesday - PE Day (please come in PE kit)

 

Thursday - any home certificates for celebration assembly

 

Children need to come to school in their P.E. kits on a Monday and a Wednesday. Where possible we will try and go outside for our P.E. sessions so please ensure that the children will be dressed in something that will keep them warm. 

 

We would like to remind you that the school’s PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and a dark coloured track suit. Your child will also need suitable outside trainers. All of this MUST BE CLEARLY LABELLED with your child’s name and class.

 

 

 

As in Year One, your child will need to bring into school their reading books and book bags every day.  Home school reading records will be sent home for you to record any comments about your child's reading. Please feel to write comments in each time you hear your child read. 

 

 

Every Monday the Home Learning will be uploaded onto Google Classroom. Information will be on there about the tasks the children must complete that week. Nothing needs to be submitted onto Google Classroom unless stated.

 

 

Your child’s Home Learning books need to be returned to school every Monday and will be sent home the same day.

 

On a Monday, we will carry out a short, informal spelling test in a Spelling Book. These will be marked in school and your child will be told their score.

This term in science we are studying animals including humans.

 

 

 

 

 

In English we will be reading and writing a variety of texts including Dougal the Deep Sea Diver and The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.

 

 

 

This term we are going to be looking at place value.

 

 

To start our seasides topic, we are looking at the Geography of the seaside first to help with our understanding.

Here are some resources to help you:

 

 

In Year 2 our significant author is Anthony Browne. We will be researching into his life and looking at what inspired him to become an author. 

 

To find out more about Anthony Browne and some of his books visit this website

These are just some of the books which we read and look at in school

 

 

 

Reading in Year 2

In Year 2 we have daily whole class reading sessions. We use the prompts from the reading VIPERS to help us improve the key reading skills.

When hearing children read we not only work on the children's comprehension but also their fluency and expression. In school we use the term reading EARS.

In Year 2 we all have our own TTrockstars login to help us learn our times tables. 

 

When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables. To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!

 

 

Every Monday we complete our X Factor challenges! There are copies of all the challenges below so you can print them out and have a go at home.
