Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2 we have so many great opportunities to learn new things. We continue to progress in our phonics, we continue to become confident readers and we carry on becoming strong mathematicians. Every day we have a Maths and English lesson. In the afternoons have either an RE, Science, Art, or Topic lesson – where we learn about the world and people who came before us. We have a PE lesson twice a week. We also have one Music and RHE lesson a week. All of these lessons shapes us into great learners and enables us to achieve anything we want to achieve.
Year 2 have their PE lessons on a Monday and a Friday. On PE days it is expected that children come to school in their PE kit. This is a plain white t-shirt, plain blue tracksuit bottoms or shorts and plain black/white trainers or plimsolls. Children should also ensure that they do not wear earrings on PE days for health and safety reasons.
Homework will be set on a Friday on Google Classroom and this will be due on a Thursday every week. Maths homework will be set via My Maths. It is important that the children complete their homework every week as it is vital for their progression and to consolidate their learning.
What are Year 2 learning this week?
In our English lessons we have been focusing on Character description. We have been reading, Asha’s Attic.
This week, we have been focusing on comparing numbers to 40.
During our Science lessons we planned and carried out an investigation, to find out which materials float.
In our RE lessons, we have been learning about Moses and the Burning Bush. We also learnt that Moses was a good man because he respected God.
During Topic this week, we have been learning why the fire spread so quickly.
