Term 3!

 

I hope you all had a restful and wonderful Christmas. This term we will be going back to the past to learn all about medieval castles in our new topic Dungeons and Dragons! The new curriculum newsletter and homework grid will be out on Monday so look out for that in your children's bags. We've already had lots of fun reenacting the Battle of Hastings so be sure to ask your child what their role was in the battle!

***VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!****

 

If you can spare ANY time to come into school to hear readers we would be EXTREMELY grateful! Just one afternoon a week would have a huge impact on the children. Please let the office know if you think you can help. 

 

 

Term 2!

 

Look out for a new curriculum newsletter and homework grid coming soon! In the meantime if you're looking for anything you can do to help your child at home here are a few ideas:

 

  • Read, read and read some more!
    It is SOOOOO important that children are getting the chance to practise the tricky new skill they are learning as much as possible. Every day is ideal but at least aim for 5 times a week. A good way to make sure it happens every day is to set aside the same time slot every day - perhaps just before bed for example. Reading their school book is ideal but it could be practising blending on a reading game (see websites below), reading a shopping list, a menu, street signs - anything to keep them interested! 
  • Handwriting
    In year 2 children are learning cursive handwriting so look out for sheets that come home as homework or just have a go in your howework book!
  • Number facts
    Children should be completely fluent in simple addition and subtraction to 20. They should be able to recall facts like 16 - 2 = 14 without thinking too much about them or having to spend time working them out. The way to help them with this is to practise them as much as possible (see maths games on website below for fun/engaging way for them to do this).
  • Times tables
    In year 2 children need to know their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables - try making a game with them to see how many they know? How many can they do in a minute? Can they beat their time? There are loads of songs on youtube to help them learn, here are a couple that we use in class...

 Welcome to Year two!

 

Teacher: Mrs Tyler

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Reader

What a busy first term we've had! We certainly managed to cram a lot in! We had a great time finding out about all different Wonder Women and how they've had an impact in science and in our history. We learnt about the awesome Amelia Earhart and found out all about her treacherous journey around the world. Mrs Armitage was our brilliant story and we learnt to retell it and even invented our own versions! We loved 'blinging' our bikes just like her! Our trip to We the Curious was great fun and we tested lots of different materials as well as exploring all the brilliant science at the museum. We have also learnt all about our brains this term and have been trying really hard to have a 'growth mindset' - or be a purple learner. This means we always try our best, look out for our mistakes and try and try and try again!
