Year 2 Staff:

Class Teacher: Miss Roberts

HLTA: Mrs. Robinson 

 

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back after the summer holidays. We hope you had a wonderful break and are ready to continue learning.I am also very excited to be back after my maternity leave, I can't wait to start our new adventures together. 

We have carefully planned many exciting learning opportunities across the curriculum, to ensure that you grow and develop to your full potential. It is our aim that you love learning, love coming to school each day and feel confident in your environment to take chances in your learning and to achieve success- academically, socially and emotionally. 

We are here to help and support you, your happiness is our priority and we will do everything in our power to always be there for you, not only the staff in Year 2 but also everyone else across the school. Please talk to us if you ever have any questions or worries, together there is nothing we can't work through. 

 

Our topic this term is: Where do Owls live?

This is a topic linked to our book 'The owl who was afraid of the dark'. We will learn all about these magnificent creatures and where their habitats are.

Our Pathways to Write texts this term are:

Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson

The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark by Jill Tomlinson 

In Pathways to Read, we will be reading the texts Troll by Julia Donaldson and The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Mara Alperin. These books link to both our English texts, and our wider curriculum lessons, and will help us to develop our understanding of the topic. We can't wait to share these exciting books with you.

PE

Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays. Friday sessions are led by our PE coaches, and Monday sessions by the Year 2 team. Children will need a named kit in school at all times. We sometimes have extra P.E. sessions or change our sessions around, so this is really important. We send home kit each half term to be washed. Please make sure children have a white top, black or white shorts and pumps or trainers.

Homework and Reading

Homework will be sent home on Fridays. Each week we will send home a Learning Log task and a piece of Maths. Homework is due back by Wednesday. Please read with your child as often as possible, every day if you can. Please write a comment in the yellow diary eg. Did they enjoy it? How well are they blending? Could they retell the story? Could they discuss the character’s behaviour? The more practice your child gets, the quicker your child will become fluent. Please keep the reading book and yellow reading diary in their book bag and send it in every day. Each week your child will be given a reading book that they should be able to read independently. They will also choose a ‘book for pleasure’ each week, these are books they really want to read but may not be able to independently i.e. chapter books, encyclopaedias, reference books, biographies etc. These books can be enjoyed together, even if you need to read it all. We want to make reading as pleasurable as possible.
