I have included a template of a rainbow.  Perhaps you could colour it in and put it in your window.

This weekend I would like you to find things that are special to you.  See the document below.  

It would be lovely to say a prayer together with your family.  This will bring us closer to God and one another during this time.

I have posted the maths solution for yesterday and a new one for today.

Maybe you could start to keep your own diary of events throughout this time - a little like Samuel Pepys during the Fire of London.

Over the weekend, take the time you have with your child to enjoy them.  Read a book together, watch a film, bake and most importantly have fun.

Take care

Good morning Year 2,

I hope that you are all happy and have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

How did you get on with the maths challenge yesterday?  Did you remember how to share an amount into 2 equal groups?  I have added the answers above.  Have a go at today's challenge - to recognise a quarter.  I have also added some arithmetic questions and a comprehension activity.

I am missing you all.  Keep safe and healthy

Hello children.  I do hope that you are all being very good for your grown ups at home!  Why not set yourself a daily kindness challenge?  Perhaps you could tidy your bedroom or help lay the table for dinner.

At 11am, the Pope has asked for everyone to pray the Lord's Prayer. 

Today I would like you to write your own prayer for the world.

Hello and welcome to the Year 2 Class Page. 

We hope you have had a wonderful summer and we are very excited for the busy year ahead! 

The Year 2 team consists of Mrs McGovern and Mrs Wear (Class Teachers) and Mrs Fisher and Mr Whelan (Teaching Assistants). 

This page will keep you informed about all of the exciting experiences and learning that will be taking place throughout our time in Year 2. We will upload photographs and videos regularly so that you can share in our learning journey.

Here is some important information for you:                                                                                                     

PE

PE will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the Autumn Term. Children will need their full PE kits. 

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be returned on the following Wednesday. We really appreciate your support in ensuring that homework is completed and your child's book is returned every week. 

Spelling

We use a spelling scheme where children will have a daily spelling lesson with a weekly spelling focus. 

Reading

It is extremely important that children read on a daily basis, with opportunities for an adult to hear them read/ discuss their reading. In Year 2, the expectation is that they read for 10 minutes every night and have their reading record signed by an adult. Please could you remind your child that they need to bring their book to school with them every day. Children in Year 2 will have the opportunity to change their reading books throughout the week. We encourage children to read their book more than once so that they become more familiar with their book and can read it fluently and with expression.  

We value your support with your child's learning and we are so excited to see your children grow, learn and achieve this year! 

Mrs Wear and Mrs McGovern.

Year 2 had the most wonderful time at the seaside! We went to Weston Super Mare as part of our 'Beachcombers' topic. The children absolutely loved playing in the sand. They built sandcastles, dug holes and buried each other! The donkey rides were the best part! We finished the day by eating chips and ice cream on the seafront. The children were exhausted after such a busy day and the coach journey home was very quiet! The teachers were extremely proud of all of the children for their excellent behaviour and positive attitudes. Well done Year 2! 

As part of National Poetry Day Year 2 learnt "She sells sea shells..." They worked in groups to learn the tongue twister off by heart. They also wrote their own seaside poems based upon their senses. Have a listen to our wonderful poems. 

As part of our Wellbeing day on Thursday 10th October, the children in Year 2 took part in  a variety of activities to encourage them to look after their bodies and minds. We thought about the things that make us feel happy and we did some Zumba! We also took part in a Yoga session and made fruit kebabs. We listened to the story 'Ruby's worry' and we talked about what we can do when we have a worry.  The children really enjoyed the day.
