Year 2 Summer Newsletter 2020
Welcome to our Summer Term.
Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready to continue to learn. This term will start off very differently to normal…
NO SATS TESTS in May as we continue to learn from home whilst we follow the Government guidelines.
We would also like to say a huge thanks to parents and guardians for their continued support; you are doing such an amazing job during what is a very surreal time. Please don’t panic or stress yourselves out over your child’s learning, just try your best and we are only a message or phone call away if you need our help and support with anything.
Our English work will be a mixture of online activities including reading, comprehension, writing, spelling and grammar activities. These will be updated daily on Class Dojo so please make sure you look at it every day and send us some of your fabulous work on your portfolio as we love to see it. Don’t forget to keep reading too! It is vital that children read with an adult daily.
Maths will continue to build on our previous learning using the White Rose Home Learning daily planning. It gives you a video to watch the content and the activities to follow together with answers so you can check your work. Don’t worry if you can’t print out the activity sheet as you can always just write the answers down or draw and copy out the worksheet yourself. Keep practising your fluency using Times Table Rockstars, Mathletics & Classroom Secrets as your speed was very impressive before we finished and we do not want you to slow down. Keep practising!
For the wider curriculum, we will continue to set a range of activities on Dojo linked to Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Design Technology, PE, ICT, RE and PSHE so children can further develop skills and key concepts in these areas.
Please remember that home learning is a vital part of the current curriculum as it allows for consolidation opportunities as well as preparing for future challenges… Year 3 will be on us before we know it!
Here’s to a great summer term, hopefully we will back together before the end (keep your fingers crossed).
