Welcome to Year 2
Miss Allen and Mrs Stansfield would like to warmly welcome you to the year 2 class page. We hope that you will be regular visitors so we can keep you up to date with what we have been learning, any class news and other key activities or events that may be taking place.
Please look through the site below for our most recent learning, achievements and useful information such as letters and topic overviews.
We are looking forward to getting to know everyone over the next few weeks and are thrilled to be sharing your child's learning journey with you.
If you have any questions or queries that you'd like to discuss, please don't hesitate to contact us via the school office.
YEAR 2 HOME LEARNING
This is where you will find copies of set learning activities and links for children when home learning.
For each half term, there will be a Topic grid sent out on Seesaw and below on this website. A suggestion would be to complete two of these activities a week; however, this is just a guide.
For each week, there are set learning activities:
- Spelling shed (one recapped spelling rule a week to be found on the EdShed website)
- 1 Phonics demonstration video (found on the YouTube playlist link below, which is also shared on Seesaw)
- 3 Phonics activities based on the spelling rule demonstrated on the video (on Seesaw)
- Daily DEAR videos (found on the YouTube playlist link below, which is also shared on Seesaw)
- A writing task that will take 2 sessions to complete
- 2 Mathematics activities (On Seesaw)
- 1 Mathematics game (On Seesaw)
- Mathletics (On the Mathletics website)
- Timestables Rockstars (On the TTRockstars website)
All learning that is completed can be done so in the 'Home Learning' book (green exercise book) that children brought home in the last week of school. This work can be photographed and shared on Seesaw. Spelling shed, mathletics and timestables rockstars will all be monitored on line.
On top of these set activities, there a range of home learning tasks for reading, writing, maths and science. These are in PowerPoints and give short tasks in each of the above areas. Further to this, there are further tasks listed in the topic grid document underneath the topic grid itself. These are for children who would like additional learning suggestions for at home.
Ways to keep in touch:
- Photographing work and recording on Seesaw, I will respond to these by commenting but your friends won't be able to see it.
- Emailing the Year 2 address to send pictures of what you have been up to. I will not be able to answer here but these photos will go onto the blog and your friends will be able to see them
- Commenting on my YouTube videos, I will respond to these by commenting.
- Sending an email through the office.
Please find below a list of documents and links to help you at home during this time.
Stay Home. Stay safe. Stay Smiley.
From Miss Allen and Mrs Stansfield
Mrs Stansfield and I wish you all a happy half term. Enjoy your time with your families and we'll see you back at the start of next term with some more exciting learning based on Knights and Castles.
This week we have been looking at finding the difference between two amounts. This is a challenging concept in year 2 but we worked hard using number lines to count on from one number to the next. This then helped us to find change.
When we came in on Monday morning it was obvious that someone had been in our classroom over the weekend. We found lost of dirty socks and all of our Math resources were in a mess. We counted the socks in twos to work out how many bare feet had been in our classroom and we had to put all teh unifix cubes back into sticks of 10.
This week the children have been exploring the feelings of the Lost boys through drama. They came up with some fantastic vocabulary such as 'courageous' and 'hopeless'. They then added this to their character descriptions. The children improved their simple sentences by adding 'because'. We then explored the features of a Wanted Poster and used our descriptions to create one to put up around school. We hope we find the lost boys.
