I hope that everyone had a peaceful and restful Christmas.
2019 is going to be an extraordinary year for Year Two and I'm very excited for all of the interesting and fascinating learning opportunities that await us.
Our topic for Spring One is: The Great Fire of London.
This Class Blog will be updated each week with lots of exciting photos to show you some of our exciting learning experiences so keep checking back!
Welcome to Year Two!
In Year Two, our classroom is a laughter-sharing, risk-taking, mistake-making learning environment where we are each unique and beautiful, but together, we create a master piece!
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.
Our Gospel Values this half term are: Eloquent and Truthful.
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 or spelling 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.
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.
