Hello and welcome to Year Two!
I hope you all had a good summer holiday and are ready for a busy first half term back at school.
On this class page you will be able to find information about our timetable and what we are learning about this half term.
Our topic this half term is All Aboard! More information about the objectives we will be working towards and the activities we will be doing can be found in the topic overview.
Optional homework sheets will be sent home twice a half term and will also be posted on this class page. Each sheet will contain a list of activities linked to English, Maths, Science and wider curriculum subjects we are learning about in class. Please send homework tasks in as and when they are completed.
Compulsory homework is the same for every child in the school. Please listen to your child read five times a week for ten minutes. Each child in Year Two has log in details for Numbots. This is a maths based game that allows the children to practise skills of counting, addition, subtraction and number bonds in a fun way. Log in details can be found at the front of their reading record. Please help them to log on for ten minutes five times a week. We go on the app in school so they know what to do when they are logged on. If your child is on the RWI Spelling programme (you will have had a letter about this), please support them in learning the spellings recorded in their log book. This log book needs to come in and out of school every day with their reading book and reading record.
On Tuesday we will be going outside in the afternoon to take part in activities linked to science or wider curriculum subjects. It would be helpful if children could have a pair of wellies or suitable outdoor shoes in school for the wetter weather.
Our PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school for them to be able to fully participate in the sessions. Full PE kit includes: a red t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. I will send PE kits home at the end of every half term to be washed.
As always, please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.
