Work for week beginning Monday 20th April (after Easter break)
Hi Y2, hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. Each week, I will be adding some more work for you to do, which will mainly be Maths and English but will also include some Science, RE and this half term History.
It is really important that you keep reading as much as you can - this can be any book you choose to read. Keep practicing times tables as well and use Phonics Play website to practice your spellings of Phase 5 phonemes.
Practice your spellings whenever you have time.
If TTRockstars is getting tricky, try some of the multiplication games available on the Topmarks website that can also help you practice these skills.
It is also very important that you don't lose your writing skills - I would like you to write a letter to me or Fraser Bear at school, and you can even post it to school if you like. You can also start researching our first explorer for our Adventurer topic 'Christopher Columbus' and could teach the teacher on Seesaw! In Science, we are carrying on learning about animals - this week you have some sorting to do and will have to research which animals are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores! These words tell us what types of food animals eat.
Don't forget to relax and do some fun stuff too, make the most of when the sun shines and this special time with your family! Have you done any of these bingo activities yet?
Missing you all and hope we get back to normal soon! Stay safe Y2!
General Class Information
Missing our daily mental maths? Have a go at a few pages of this if you're bored. No need to complete it all, try the ones you know. Remember the arrow methods and drawing boxes to find fractions if needed.
MEET THE TEAM!
This year these are the staff that will be working with your children either in class, or extra sessions in intervention groups:
MRS GILLETT MRS ANDERSON MRS FAIRBANKS MR COWLING MRS LONGHURST
In Year 2, it is very important that the children complete their homework including spellings and reading their homework book every week. At the end of the year, the children will be taking their SATs tests which include separate reading and spelling tests. The outcome of these tests supplement my end of year decisions - spelling plays a big factor in whether or not your child will reach the expected level for Year 2 by the end of the year. At Parent's evening later on this half-term, I will be sending home the lists of High Frequency words and the newer 'Common Exception words' for your child to practice reading and spelling at home to consolidate the work done in class as well as intervention groups. (Please see below for the list of words.)
It is also really important that your child reads as much as they can - these books do not need to be the school reading book, and I would encourage you to share your favourite books or authors with your children. In the next few weeks, I will be inviting parents (who wish to) to come and read their favourite children's book to the class at hometime - to show children that books and stories should be enjoyed and loved! If you would be interested in this, please pop in and see me any time - the children and I would love to have you!
