Year 2 Spring Newsletter
Welcome to our Termly newsletter, this term has started much differently than usual, however, for those of you who are home learning we will be working hard to make sure you still receive the same quality learning opportunities as those who are still in school.
To help us do that we will be looking at using a selection of online tools and websites.
For our English and Topic based subjects we will be using Oak National Academy.
For Maths we will continue to follow the White Rose Maths.
All online learning will be posted daily onto the ClassDojo story page and also the Google Classroom page. Please if you are home learning, make sure you upload any of your completed work daily for us to mark. We are always available if you need any help.
Our English work will be a mixture of work on narratives, recounts and non-chronological reports with a little bit of poetry in there as well. At the moment the children are very excited to be working with varied texts – The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark, The Dragon Machine and Major Glad, Major Dizzy.
Maths will build on our previous learning with work on describing patterns involving number, calculations, mental strategies, and shape as well as some new learning of money, problem solving, multiplying, dividing and lots and lots of word problems.
Last term we consolidated our love for reading and enjoyed some excellent story books and began reading ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl. To help you to keep up with your reading at home we have created an Epic reading account for you to use as your own personal library. We will be assigning age appropriate texts for you to read as a class and we will also set a few online comprehension quizzes. We saw many of you making steady improvements last term within reading so well done and keep reading at home, we want to see you reaching those all important goals.
This half term the children in school will continue to have P.E each Monday and it is vital for everyone to remember to bring their P.E kits (black shorts, white t-shirt and black pumps or trainers) so that we are ready for each lesson. May I also please ask for parents to support our uniform policy and ensure that children are wearing the correct/appropriate footwear (black school shoes, NOT trainers).
Thank you for all your support during this very strange and changeable time.
If there are any questions about this term, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continuing support
Mr McCarthy / Mrs Andersson
