Welcome to Year Two!
Our teacher is Miss Smith and our teaching assistant is Miss Anna.
We are so excited to share lots of interesting information and exciting photos about what we have been learning. Please scroll down to look at our latest photos and information.
Book change day is a Wednesday: your child will bring home two new books which will be changed on a weekly basis. Please re-read these books to support your child with building up their fluency and confidence in word reading. If you would like further support with strategies for supporting your child’s reading at home then please do come and see me, I am more than happy to help.
We have PE on Wednesdays - please make sure child comes to school in their full PE kit.
We have swimming on Fridays.
For homework, the children will have: a Maths activity, a grammar activity and a handwriting activity each week. This will come home every Friday and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest.
They also have a 'Brain Builders' project for this term: this is due in by Monday, 12th February.
We have been practising handwriting daily in class following the ‘cursive handwriting' format. The children are now already beginning to use some of the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join letters and I am very pleased with their progress with this so far. Below, there is guidance on how to form letters correctly in the cursive format if you would like to practise this further with your child at home.
We've now reached the end of the first half of the Summer Term and what an exciting half term it has been!
The children have thoroughly enjoyed our World War Two topic and have been very engaged with the Art work, cooking in D and T and History work we've done around this period in History. They also loved our trip to the GW Railway, almost as much as Miss Gemma (see picture below)!
I have been extremely proud of the children's empathy and maturity during our studies, which has enabled this topic to be as successful as possible. They have also been working even harder than usual over the past week, as they've completed their Year Two SATs. They certainly deserve a well-earnt rest next week.
Please enjoy the pictures of our work over the past few weeks below.
Have a safe and restful week off and I look forward to seeing you all back at school to begin our new topic 'Spice of India'.
