Welcome to Year 2
Hedgehog Class teacher is Miss Brown and the Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Stubbs.
Squirrel Class teacher is Miss Woodgate and the Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Hindle, Miss Forder, Miss Hayes.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has a named PE kit in school and that any earrings have been taken out before school.
Home learning will be set on Class Dojo every Monday and will be due the following Monday, to give your child a week to complete the task. Each week will alternate between a reading comprehension task and a maths fluency task with the expectation that your child will receive feedback for the maths task before the next maths task. All work will need to be handed in via Class Dojo so that feedback can be provided. As we begin home learning, any feedback is greatly appreciated so please do let us know.
We are so excited to work with you all this year. Here's to a happy year ahead!
Thank you :)
Miss Brown and Miss Woodgate
Highlight of the week!
Week 3: 21/01/2022
We had lots of fun in maths this week learning our 2, 5 and 10 times table. We spotted that for each one it's the same as counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. In English we learnt the story of Meerkat Mail and the innovated the story by changing the places Sunny visited to places around our school. We learnt about past tense verbs to describe what Sunny did in each place and how he got there.
Week 2: 14/01/2022
This week there was a mysterious box that had turned up in our classroom. It was filled with different things including Sunny the meerkat, an ancient looking plate, some clothes with very detailed and colourful patterns and a giraffe. We created posters for what we found and what we wanted to explore further. As geographers we have been locating Africa on a map (which is where we think all the items in our box came from!) We then looked at the human and physical features of Egypt and compared them to England.
In English we have been working hard to write our postcard as Sunny as he has been on an adventure around our school. We thought carefully about where he went, what he did, what he ate and what he liked or disliked about it.
Week 1: 07/01/2022
It was lovely to see all the children settle back into Year 2 really well and showing a great attitude to their learning. We started reading our new book this week called 'Meerkat Mail' and wrote a postcard to Sunny (the main character in the story) about what we got up to in the Christmas holidays and what our school is like. We also started our new multiplication topic in maths and looked at creating equal groups and making arrays to help us count objects.
In Spring 1, our learning enquiry is:
Let's all go on safari!
What will we see on our journey through Africa?
