News and Updates

Week Commencing- 10.01.22

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. It was so lovely to see you last week Year 2 and we had a great start to the year!

 

Just a few updates regarding homework for this half term. Our EBL has now moved to a Tuesday afternoon for this half term. Like last half term your child will have a new research question every 2 weeks and it will now be due in for a Tuesday. Please ensure this is being completed in your child's research book. It is your child's responsibility to make Mrs Morris or myself aware if they have finished their research book. It is really important your child is competing their research homework as it allows them to develop essential skills ready for KS2 and later life! 

 

Spellings will still be given out every Friday and there will be a spelling test every Friday. The sheets do not need to be handed back in. The spelling sheet is for your child's practise at home.

 

Please ensure your child is reading to an adult every night and an adult signs the reading record. Again this is essential to ensure your child's progression.

 

I am looking forward to another great term with you!

 

Thank you for all your support, as always it is very much appreciated.

 

Many Thanks,

 

Miss Carey :) 

Dear Parents/ Carers,

 

As part of our Advent fundraising, we are trying to raise money to buy ‘World Gifts’ from CAFOD to help families living in poverty buy essential items such as food, water and hygiene products.

In year 2, we have decided to do a sponsored dance as our fundraising event! We will be doing this on Thursday 16thDecember. Our goal is to dance non-stop for an hour. Please contribute any donations you are able to on school money. We are holding this fundraising event instead of sending Christmas cards so it is not an additional expense for families.

Thank you so much for supporting this important cause. Our contributions to ‘World Gifts’ will truly help a family living in poverty. If you would like more information, please visit the CAFOD website.

 

Thank you again,

Miss Carey :)

EBL Research Question- 17.11.21

Apologies for not sending the research question out this week. The following research question for Wednesday is:

 

Who was Guy Fawkes and why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?

Things to think about:

  • Who was Guy Fawkes?
  • Why did they want to blow the Houses of Parliament up?
  • What happened in the Gunpowder Plot?
  • Why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?

 

Your child should have their research book at home. If they don't please complete this on a sheet of paper. The children have started this topic already so they may have some prior knowledge!

 

Many Thanks

Miss Carey :) 

 

Nativity information

Please can you ensure your child has their nativity lines with them everyday as we will be practising most days! Please can you encourage your child to know their lines off by heart by the end of this week (12.11.21). From the 15.11.21 I would really like children to be off their scripts so that they can really get into their roles, feel confident and most importantly enjoy it!

 

Children have been sent home with their Charanga logins and instructions on how to access the songs. It would be amazing if you could practice these songs at home. 
 

Thank you so much for your continued support. Well done year 2 for your hard work, keep going! This is going to be a very special performance!

 

Thank you 

 

Miss Carey ☺️

Week Commencing 1.11.21

I hope you have had a wonderful half term Year Two. We have a very fun-filled busy half term ahead of us! Please can you come in PE Kit tomorrow (1/11/21). On Tuesday we will be starting our Healthy Me topic in science. Please can you bring in one item of food packaging from any of the food groups (Carbohydrates, Fruit and Veg, Dairy, Protein and Fats, Oils, Sweets). If possible can you try and make sure the packaging is clean!  I am really excited to see you all!

 

Miss Carey :)

Date for your diary:

Open afternoon on Monday 11th October at 2.30pm. This is a lovely afternoon to share in your child's learning. You come to the classroom and sit with your child as they show you all the super work they have done this half term. We hope you can come. 

Numbots

Your child was sent home with a Numbots login on Friday 10th September. Numbots is a brilliant interactive maths that the children can play on the computer or on iPads. It builds on their mathematical understanding, recall and fluency in their addition and subtraction. 
 

Their username and password is on the letter that was sent home and it is also on a sticker in the front of your child’s reading records. We have launched this in class today (14.09.21) so your child understands how to work the game. I really encourage you to use this at home as it is really fun and engaging. I will sometimes be setting it as homework and we will be using it regularly in class. 
 

Enjoy upgrading your robots Year 2! 🤖
