Class 2

Hello hello everyone! Another week has flown by and it is that time again to check out our new timetable below.

 

This week in English we are looking at all things bright and ... small! A film themed week of The Borrowers and Honey I Shrunk the Kids! In Maths we are continuing with our measuring and now exploring into litres and millilitres. For Science, History and Art this week is all about strange and wacky inventions! Can't wait to see what everyone gets up to this week laugh

 

As always we are missing you tremendously, please stay safe and stay at home.

Miss Stephens and Mrs Marsden

 

 

Spelling, punctuation and grammar

Grammar and punctuation online activities: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/spelling-and-grammar 

This website has a big list of activities for Year 2 and onwards so make sure you children are accessing the ones for year 2, and not KS2. There are also activities for 5-7 year olds too but again make sure they are the year 2 ones!

 

Helpful maths links:

This activity is a fantastic way to warm up our brains before we get stuck into any Maths work. I recommend starting with level 2 and then working their way up as they progress.  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 this activity is best done with an adult to check the answers.

 

Computing links

This website is an introduction to coding. Using colourful characters from fun cartoons such as Ice Age and Angry Birds you’ll be able to write lines of code to create your own story!

First is a short video on internet safety, the follow the instructions. Let me know how you get on 😊

WELCOME TO YEAR 2.

 

Hello and welcome to the start of the Spring 2 Term and some exciting times ahead. Miss Stephens will be teaching Class 2 for the remainder of the academic year, with Mrs Bilboa covering PPA on a Thursday afternoon. Mrs Marsden is our very valuable teaching assistant- please speak to us if you have any concerns

Our topic for this half term is The Farm Shop, will be exploring plant growth and the germination process. Watch this space for photographs of our work and school events.

 

Please continue to read with your child every day and try to ask questions about the text and discuss any unfamiliar words with your child. Homework will be sent out every Friday and it is important that this is completed as their spelling test on Friday is based on the spellings in their homework. Times table practise is also a good thing to do at home so that your child is able to recall answers to 2X, 5X, 10X, 3X and 4X tables quickly and confidently.
