Year 2

This Week’s Learning

Next week, the Year 2 class teachers will be carrying out the end of Key Stage 1 phonics screener assessments. These will be held in a calming 121 setting to ensure that the children feel comfortable. Year 2 are well prepared for the screener as they have been receiving daily phonics practice at school.

It is still extremely important that your child is engaging with their home learning tasks. This includes, Fast Phonics and Reading Eggs, Mathletics, Phonics flash cards and daily reading. 

At home phonics support:

Week commencing Monday 23rd November

We hope you have all had a restful weekend. We have lots of great learning opportunities ready for when you return to school.

This week in Literacy the children will continue to plan and start to write their 5 part stories based on the fascinating illustration left by the mysterious Harris Burdick.  We will focus on planning and writing the introduction and build up this week.

In Maths we will be continuing with the topic Numbers: Addition and Subtraction. We will be focusing on adding 1 digit and 2 digit numbers together using different strategies. 

In Topic we will be following on from our History lesson last week and begin learning about Mary Seacole. During Natural Thinkers, we will look at how Mary used herbal medicine to help soldiers in the Crimean war and will look to see if we can find any plants in our Wildlife Garden that have healing properties. 

Ongoing Learning

Please remind your child to read daily for 20 minutes and to bring their book into school with them each day.

Fast Phonics (Reading Eggs) and Mathletics will be set for your child this week.

PE – We have outdoor PE on a Tuesday afternoon and indoor PE on a Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child has an appropriate PE kit on these days (especially as we will be outside for these sessions)! You are welcome to bring this on Monday and take it home on Friday.

Daily Mile – Every Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning (weather permitted) we all go outside and run a few laps around our playground. This helps us wake up, get moving and get ready for the day.
