Year Two

Welcome to Year 2’s class page

We aim to provide the children with an exciting and engaging curriculum with each term focused around a theme.

 Below we will share information about our curriculum and class routines.

We will also share photographs of our work throughout the year for you to see!

         

Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term – Famous Florence

Spring Term – Travel and Transport/Safari

Summer Term – London’s Burning                      

Home Reading

Reading helps children with their knowledge, understanding and language. The children are taught to read in school however it is important that you encourage your child to read at home daily and listen to them read a couple of pages of their book.

Please can parents also sign the yellow diaries so the children can be rewarded for their efforts.                                  

World Book Day 2018

On Friday 2nd March we dressed up as our favourite storybook characters. We  described famous storybook characters in our Big Write and made book marks to use in our home reading books and library books.

Spellings

Each week children will receive 10 spellings from the Year 1&2 National Curriculum to practise in class and at home. Please help your child to practise their spellings as they will be tested each Monday.

 Well done to our Y2 super spellers!

In class we use the spelling shed app which the children really enjoy playing.

This can be downloaded (£2.99) from the App Store if you have access to an iPad at home.

It’s really easy to use. Children can play on the Year 1&2 spellings or you can input our weekly spellings into the Your Lists at the bottom of the main page!

Meet Tibbi!                                        

Tibbi is our class cuddly who will go home each weekend with a different child. We would like the children to write about what they have done with Tibbi in Tibbi’s diary and attach photographs where possible.

Have a look at Tibbi’s Journey so far…..

……..I wonder who Tibbi will share his next adventure with?

Star of the Week

      Our Star in Year 2 is…

Augustina

For improvement in reading of phonics, reading every night at home with mum and  for scoring a high mark on her phonics screening test! 

Year 2 Wall of Fame

In Year 2 we strive to write brilliant and beautiful pieces of work. If we have worked really hard our work will make it onto our Wall of Fame. Have a read of some of our fabulous work below.

St Patrick’s Day 

We loved learning about our class saint, Saint Patrick and had a wonderful day celebrating his feast day by wearing green! Thank you to all the parents who sent in cakes and biscuits for our afternoon party.

P.E

The children will have P.E every Wednesday afternoon next term. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school on these days with trainers rather than pumps as we are hoping to start our lessons outside again.

 

What we will be learning in the Summer Term

This term our topic focus is History and we will be learning about the Great Fire of London.

Science

In science we are going to be learning about plants and take part in lots of experiments to see how plants grow.

Year 2 Class Trip!

On Wednesday 3rd July we are going on a class trip to Aston Hall in Birmingham where we will take part in a workshop about the Great Fire of London. Letters to parents will go out towards the end of the next term.

Parents – Please keep checking our class page as we will upload new information and display work that the children have done regularly.
