Welcome to Year 2!
Miss Harwood and Mrs Hay would like to welcome you to Year 2.
Year 2 is a great year, full of new experiences and big achievements, and we feel lucky to be sharing this part of your learning journey with you.
It’s been a little while since we have all been at school together but don’t worry, we are here to help you settle back in. Please come and talk to us if you do have any worries or if there is anything you are unsure about.
We are so happy to be welcoming you back to school and we’re really looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better. We’ll work hard together, learn lots of new things, and most importantly we’ll have plenty of fun!
See you soon,
Miss Harwood and Mrs Hay
WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 5th January 2021
Happy new year and welcome back to a new school term!
This week we will be introducing our new topic Eager Explorers, starting off by learning all about Vikings! We will finish the week with a Viking Explorers day, when we will be making our own long boats and deciphering some ancient Viking codes.
You are more than welcome to come to school on Friday dressed as a Viking, but please don’t go to lots of trouble or expense. Plain clothes and handmade accessories will be just great!
In our maths lessons this week, we will be learning how to add and subtract two-digit numbers using the column method (this is the method with which most grown-ups will be familiar from their own school days!)
In English, we will spend a little time reflecting on the Christmas break before writing a letter to say ‘thank you’ to someone special for something kind that they have done for us.
Phonics lessons this week will focus on homophones containing the /air/ sound, such as pear & pair, hare & hair and bear & bear.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Miss Harwood & Mrs Hay
