Welcome to Year Two!
In Year Two we have Miss Owen (2RO) and Mrs Martin (2RM) as Class Teachers.
Mrs Nuttall, Ms Elson and Mrs Schofield support the children as Teaching Assistants. Mrs Gollings will work across the year group, providing specialist support. We are also joined by Mrs Rogers this year who will be working with 2RM.
2RO’s and 2RM's classroom is located just inside the infant building internal entrance and accessed through entrance G from the infant playground.
Children need reading books in school every day. Reading books should be brought in school book bags and will be stored in classroom trays. Children need to have a P.E. kit in school which consists of a T-shirt, shorts and school pumps. A pair of Wellington boots should also be brought into school for outdoor play and Forest School work. Children have a spelling book and spelling tests take place on Fridays. Our weekly timetable can be found at the bottom of this page.
What we do:
Every day the children take part in fun and exciting activities to promote their development and learning. We undertake daily Phonics, Literacy and Maths lessons. We also underpin our learning with ICT through using iPads and laptops in class. Once a fortnight we work with Mr Bean for an Outdoor Learning activity, and we promote physical activity through formal and informal P.E. lessons. We plan our learning from the children’s interests and this forms the basis of any topics studied.
Topics – 2017-2018:
Autumn – Chocaholics
Spring - Great and terrible disasters
Summer - All creatures great and small
Topics for this term - Great and terrible disasters
The first half of this term we will be studying the great fire of London in 1666. The children will be exploring a range of interesting events involving the great fire and its impact on London then and in the future.
The Second half of the term the children will be studying the Titanic in 1912. The children we be transported back in time to when the unsinkable ship came across the immovable object and its influence on future naval vessels.
In the Autumn Term we had a very exciting trip to Cadbury's World. The children had a wonderful day and experienced many interesting interactive activities whilst learning about the history of chocolate, chocolate making and the cocoa bean.
Homework and Spellings:
In Year 2 we set homework projects linked to children’s topics and learning. A project is set every half term. Please find the homework projects set below.
Spelling tests will take place on a Friday each week.
Every week we invite relatives of the children into class to support with reading and storytime. This will take place every Thursday after half term at 8.45-9.15am.
Please find the powerpoint from the welcome session below. Please come and see us if you have any questions.
Welcome back to the start of a new school year. We hope that all of the children are excited to be entering Year 2.
