WELCOME to Year 2

SPRING TERM   

 

Welcome back to school everyone, I hope you've had a fun half term holiday.  This week, I have really enjoyed the start of the warmer weather, it reminds me of Spring.  I always look forward to Easter because it is one of my favourite times of the year.  I went for a walk this week and saw lambs which were only a few days old, they were really cute. 

Please keep up your reading at home.  Remember, when you have finished your reading book, return it on  Mondays and Thursdays before choosing a new book.  

We follow the White Rose maths scheme which can be found on the following website if you want to follow along at home.  This can be found at https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/primary-resources/primary-sols/   Click on the Year 2 scheme of learning. 

  

 Also feel free to contact me via email

 NEW REMOTE LEARNING INFORMATION 

For remote lessons and accompanying resources, I will be using TEAMS.  Daily Maths, English and Phonics lessons will also be recorded and posted in TEAMS.   

Well done if you managed to access and complete the home learning tasks.  I think you are all brilliant, keep working hard and remember to join our class story on TEAMS, Mon-Wed at 2:30pm.  I'll look forward to seeing you all there.

If you have an iPhone or iPad you actually have a scanner! Parents, if you are planning to scan any work to your teachers or teachers if you are scanning work to your students you can use the ‘Notes App’.
Open a new note, press the camera button, the option to scan document will pop up. Once the document is scanned you can email it easier than a photo, plus you can add notes to the scanned doc. #themoreyouknow

READING NON FICTION AT SCHOOL 

This week we have been learning about the seasons.  We looked at the Autumn colours in the leaves to make Autumn leaf rubbings.

 

READING

Reading is a very important part of learning in year 2 and I am looking forward to hearing about all of the reading you have done over the past few weeks.  Remember to bring in your school reading book if you have one at home.   GETEPIC is still available for you to read at home.  Click on the link below to go straight to the website.

Remember to read regularly on GETEPIC

Oxford Owl is also a great website for access to school books.  Click on the icon below to go straight to that web page.

 

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.
