Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to our class page! Mrs Nelson, Miss Jones, Mr Lomax (1 day) and I are really excited to teach our class of 31 wonderful children! We have jumped straight into learning and all the children have quickly settled back in to school life! 

Please remember to look at our news articles (on the news page, or in 'related news' at the bottom of our class page) and Facebook page, so that you can keep up-to-date with our fabulous learning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with myself via the school office, on Seesaw or send me an email.

Home Reading

We are now using Bug Club Phonics to support our teaching of phonics and reading in school.  We will use books linked to the sounds children have learned in phonics to practise and develop reading skills.  At home the children are able to access these books and activities to further support their learning.  Each week children will be allocated e-books to access and read at home.  These will be your child's main reading books and should be read during the week.  Each book has questions or activities to do with a yellow bug icon.  The book will not be classed as completed until these tasks are done.  Children will also be able to choose and take home books each Wednesday.

Bug Club Reading

 

Homework

Tasks: Every Friday your child will be set homework on Seesaw / MyMaths. Your child will be shown how to complete the task in class before attempting to complete it at home.

Spellings: We will share ten words linked to a spelling rule we have been practising in class for your child to learn each week. There will also be an additional 1-2 common exception words, which will not be linked to the spelling rule practised. There will be a spelling test the following Friday for children to show what they have learnt.  

Reading: We will only be changing books once a week (Wednesday) when the children will be given physical books & eBooks set on Bug Club. Please access reading in other ways such as through local libraries, books you have at home and www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/ which enables you to access a range of books online for free. However, you will need to sign up for a free account first. Please support your child at home by listening to them read daily. We'd love to hear how well your child has read at home, so please add photos, comments and videos of them reading at home onto Seesaw. We will share the best examples with the class!

Reminders

Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch. We are no longer able to provide the children with cups from school.

Snack: They can bring in a healthy afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket or book bag.  

P.E kits: We will be doing PE outside as much as possible so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for this. Their kit can remain in school for the half term. 

Forest School: Please bring waterproof clothing and wellies on their Forest School dates. This could be a waterproof all-in-one suit or separate waterproof trousers and coat. This will make it easier for the children to put on over their school uniform and mean that they will not need to get changed in school.
