WELCOME to Year 2

Welcome back to school everyone, I hope you have had a brilliant Summer holiday.  I am looking forward to hearing about what you have been doing.  This Summer I went to North Wales for a week and I climbed Snowdon !  It was a bit of a climb and I was very tired but felt very proud of myself.  I also went wild swimming in a lake.  It was freezing but really fun. 

I am very excited about our learning this term.  It's our Geography and Design Technology term, so I'll show you where Snowdon is on the map.


 If you have any questions about year 2 please feel free to ring school or contact me via email.

WHAT MAKES A PLACE BEAUTIFUL ?

To answer this question we will be thinking about the following questions.

Have you ever looked around our school grounds or the place where you live and thought about how beautiful it is ?

What is the United Kingdom and how do places in the UK differ from each other ?  

What makes our world beautiful ?

What can we do to keep our world beautiful ?

How do the seasons help us and which foods can we grow in each season ?

Which fruit and vegetables do you like and how do they grow ?

We will also be reading lots of fairy tales and traditional stories from around the United Kingdom.  You can listen to Jack and The Beanstalk on YouTube.   We will be talking a lot about this story and having a go at writing the story in our own words.

READING

Reading is a very important part of learning in year 2.  Please read regularly and bring your reading book into school everyday.  If you would like to read some books online, try finding books from your bookband on OXFORD OWL.  Click on the icon below to go straight to the web page.

 

PHONICS

We will also remind ourselves of the phonics learning in year 1, building upon this to help develop every child's reading fluency and understanding.    We will revise Phase 4 and then move onto Phase 5 and 6 throughout the year.  See below for some helpful online phonics practice.
