Welcome to our Year 2 page!
Most of you will be coming back to school after quite a long break and we can already see that you are ready to work hard and look after everyone in your class.
Some things will have changed a little and this is to keep us all safe.
You will need to come into school and leave school through the main gates on Kitchener Road. You only need to bring in your coat, your lunch and your book bag. You should come to school in your PE kit every Tuesday. We will help you to keep your hands clean throughout the day. We will eat snack and lunch in our classrooms and have our own area of the playground when we go outside.
We are looking forward to an exciting term of learning…
In our English and guided reading lessons we will be exploring traditional tales and fairy stories, with a focus on Little Red Riding Hood. We will have daily phonics lessons to continue learning our sounds for reading and writing.
As mathematicians we will learn about place value (number ordering, tens and ones) and become confident with addition and subtraction calculations.
In our PSHE (circle time) lessons we will use the Jigsaw characters to explore how we feel about settling into a new year group and how to cope with challenges. Like our school value of endurance, we know we will keep trying even when something is tricky!
As scientists this term we will be learning about the things that humans and animals need to stay alive and keep healthy.
Our RE theme explores kindness and how Jesus showed this throughout His life. Our daily worship will be in our classroom this term.
In our geography lessons we will be naming and locating the seven continents and five oceans using Google Earth, atlases and maps.
During our computing time this term we will be using the iPads to explore an app called Scratch Junior. We can use this app to create animated characters and retell the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
We are so pleased to see you back in school and we look forward to giving out lots of Dojo points when we see you working hard and being kind!
