Mrs McElwee, Mrs Butt and Mrs Atherton
We really enjoyed being back together last half term! All of the children and adults were glad to be back. We were so impressed by how the children settled back into our classroom routines. This half term, we are looking forward to warmer weather and some sunshine!
Please see below for important information about our learning this half term. As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
You can email Mrs McElwee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading - We will send home a colour banded book home with each child. This book will be closely matched to the phonics phase that your child is working at.They should be able to read this independently. Please sign your child's Reading Record when they have read their book. We will also send home a story book each week for your child to share with an adult.
Please send book bags to school every day.
Maths - Children should be accessing Times Tables Rock Stars each week as part of their maths homework.
Each child has their own log in for Times Tables Rock Stars. If you need a reminder of this, please contact us.
In addition to this, a maths activity will be set on Seesaw every other week.
This half term, children will have Outdoor Games on Tuesdays and Gymnastics on Wednesdays. Please send your child's PE kit to school as soon as possible. We have limited space in the classroom for PE kits. You can help by sending your child's kit in a small bag or a named carrier bag. Many thanks.
Spellings will be sent home on Mondays and children will have a spelling test on Fridays. We encourage children to practise their spellings for 5 minutes each day. We use the 'Look, say, cover, write, check' method to learn spellings. Thank you for your support at home with this.
In Year 2, we love reading! Reading helps us to relax and makes us feel happy. We enjoy reading stories, comics,
non-fiction books and lots more. We know that reading for just 10 minutes every day can make a difference.
This half term we have enjoyed designing and making our own puppets! The sewing was tricky but we had lots of patience and we were very pleased with the end products. Have a look at some of our fantastic puppets below.
Where the Wild Things Are
We really enjoyed the story 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak. We made our own 'wild thing' masks and
acted out the story outside. Our favourite part was when the 'wild rumpus' started!
Please read as much as you can with your child at home.
Just 10 minutes a day will make a difference.
