Welcome to Year 2!
Mrs Scott and I (Mrs Bee) would like to welcome you to our class page.
Here you will find some useful information about Year 2.
To keep updated with what your child is doing in school, make sure that you join Class Dojo. It is a fantastic tool which allows you to keep track of your child's behaviour as well as what they have been learning each day. Each day, I will communicate through our Class Story what the children have been learning about. You will also be able to see how many Class Dojo points your child receives each day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through the private messaging service that Class Dojo provides.
In Year 2, it is extremely important that your child reads regularly at home. Children must try and read with an adult at home at least 3 times a week. Information about how to record reading in Year 2 will be posted on Class Dojo.
It is also vital that children understand the book they are reading so please ask your child questions about the text and encourage them to answer questions carefully using the text to help them. This skill will also be practised in weekly Guided Reading sessions in school.
Oxford Owl is a great website which has lots of eBooks for children to read.
Each half term, your child will be studying a high quality text. Within their English lessons, they will develop their understanding of grammar, punctuation and spelling. You can keep up to date with our learning on the Class Dojo page.
Spelling is taught using the Pathways to Spell scheme. Spelling games will be assigned on Spelling Shed as part of the children's weekly homework.
You can also keep up to date with our Maths learning on the Class Dojo page. Maths is taught using the White Rose scheme.
The children will have PE twice a week (Monday and Wednesday). The children should always to be ready to take part in physical activity by wearing their active school uniform. Please also ensure that earrings are removed at home and long hair is tied back.
Each half term, the children will be learning about different topics. Here are the Year 2 units for this academic year:
- Would you prefer to live in a hot or a cold place?
- Why is our world wonderful?
- What is it like to live by the coast?
- How was school different in the past?
- How did we learn to fly?
- What is a monarch?
