Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to the Year 2 class webpage
Welcome back! We have made a great start to this Spring Term. This term we are learning all about being EPIC EXPLORERS!. This will be our focus in English, Theme and Design and Technology. We have been reading the book, 'The Man on the Moon' by Simon Bartram, using this to write our own postcards as if we had been to visit the moon with Bob, the main character. We will continue to investgate further books written by Simon Bartram as a source of inspiration for our writing. In design and technology will be designing and making our own moon buggies too. We will be exploring and investigating the Bahamas as part of our topic, learning which contnent it is in, and how it is similar to where we live and how it is different.
As part of our physical education we will be swimming every Monday afternoon at Hyndburn Leisure Centre until Monday 6th April. Please can you ensure that your child is provided with a full swimming kit each week to ensure they can take part, this is an essential life skill and the children thoroughly enjoy it.
Homework- your child has been provided with a topic home work grid and spellings. These are to be completed weekly and the children earn Dojo points as part of our class reward scheme. They are attached below. Reading needs to take place for 5-10 minutes, a minimum of three times a week. Your child's reading record book needs to be in school each day so that the adults in school can sign as a way of recording that they have listened to your child read. Additional homework, Maths, English and a Reading Comprehension, will be sent home every Friday to be returned the following Friday. This is to help them become more prepared for the Year 2 SATS exams which will take place in May.
Star Writer- On Friday afternoons I will pick two pupils, a boy and a girl, who will become our STAR WRITERs for the week. They will be chosen as a result of the quality of their writing in our Friday long write, linked to our theme. They will be awarded a certificate on the following Monday in class and their work will be displayed on the star writer board in class too. Please encourgage your child to write at home as this will help them with their handwriting, vocabulary and punctuation.
Year 2 - Year 2 will be performing a whole school assembly on Wednesday 29th of January at 9:00am. Please come and join us, the children find it so rewarding when they have the opportunity to perform to their family members.
Year 2 door is always open. If you would like a chat or have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me before or after school. Thank you for all your support.
