Top tips for Year 2
Reading: Reading books and records should be returned to school on a Thursday and they will be given out again on a Monday.
Home learning: Home learning will be set on Seesaw, Beech and Sycamore Class . We aim to post 2 activities a week and would like the children to complete 1 a week. All children also have their Times Table Rockstar passwords and should remember to regularly log on and play.
We are teaching Spellings daily using the NonNonsense Spellings programme. We also teach phonics using Animaphonics, you can access and share this at home if you wish.
PE: Beech Class will have PE every Thursday. Children in Beech Class should come into school wearing PE kit appropriate for the time of year on that day. The same arrangement is in place for Sycamore Class on a Friday.
Full school PE kit is required – shorts, t-shirt and pumps for indoors, and joggers, jumper and trainers for outdoors.
Our topic is ‘ The Great Fire of London’. You can find out more about what we will be covering in this topic on our knowledge organises which can be downloaded on this page. Our English fiction text this half term is on ‘The Last Wolf’ which is written by Mini Grey. Through our English lessons we will be developing our skills as story writers and gaining the experience to create our own story of contrasting characters swapping places. In Science, we will be exploring and investigating Plants.
