Year 2

Weekly overview

The class have worked hard this week in our final full week as Year 2.

In English we have created poems to say goodbye to our Year 6. We have also wrote letters to our new Year 3 class teacher.

In Maths we have consolidated our rapid recall in preparation for Year 3. We are taking every opportunity to practise telling the time.

The class demonstrated great confidence and amazing singing and acting during the summer performance of Croak.

The class have progressed and achieved so much this year; they have been a pleasure to teach.

Well done and thank you Year 2!

 

 

 

Half-termly Overview Summer 2 2019

Welcome back to our final half term of this academic year.

This term the class will be preparing for their Summer Production “Croak” which will take place on Wednesday 3rd July at 2pm.

In addition, I will led a morning activity each morning. It would obviously be of benefit if your child is here at 8.30am to take part in these activities.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to call in and see me before school or at home time. You can also contact me via an email to school or leave a message for me to phone you at a time which is convenient.

A few friendly reminders…

Reading is of the utmost importance.  Children should be doing some reading at home every night.  Please could an adult record pages read and a brief comment in the reading diary.  In Year 2, children will read to the teacher twice per week, although this may be reviewed if it is felt it would be beneficial to read more often.  There will be no set reading day and children should have their reading folder and books in school every day.  Times tables are of equal importance and I have suggested to the children they should be doing a little practice each day.

P.E. will now be on a Wednesday; the children will need their full P.E kit each Wednesday. This term the class will be doing Athletics.

For Year 2, homework will be set on Friday to be handed in the following Thursday.  There will be a piece of English, a piece of Maths plus spelling words and times tables.

Thank you

Miss Campbell

We would welcome any resources you may have at home that you feel could enhance your child’s learning in any part of the curriculum that we are studying. This may be in the form of information books, guidebooks and leaflets collected on visits to places of interest that you have made with your family. Even better, if you feel that any experiences of your own are relevant to the curriculum, it would be wonderful if you could come and share them with the class.

Thank you,

Miss Campbell and Miss Meeks.
