Welcome to our year 2 class page!
This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mum's and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes. What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address? Find out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times. When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps on and paintbrushes at the ready. Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras – it’s time to start investigating.
Please see below for key information for this year:
Homework - Homework will be sent out of a Friday and will be a literacy or maths task (alternated each week) along with spellings and a target to read 3 times in that week. Your child will get a week to complete the homework but it can be brought it and put in the homework box if its completed before then.
PE - Currently our PE days are Tuesday and Friday however due to some timetable changes it could be moved during the week. I would suggest leaving your child's PE kit on their peg all week 'just in case'
New organisers - Your child has got a new home/school organiser that should be used daily. In there you can document any reading that is done at home as well as use the learning pages to support your child. If this is lost a cost of £3 will be issued.
Please send your child to school with a bag or school book bag for them to transport items from school to home/home to school especially during the wet weather. Your child will be given a reading book appropriate for their reading level which will be changed weekly.
