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 28th September 2020

 

In this week’s English lessons we will be writing a new class story based on The Tiger Child, using what we have learned about the different sentence types to make sure it’s an exciting read!

This week’s phonics lessons will focus on the /j/ sound spelt with “ge” at the end of a word as in hinge, large and package.

In maths we will use our knowledge of place value to estimate number using a number line. (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9vgkqt)

Many thanks for your continued support,

21st September 2020

This week in English we will continue our work on the story of The Tiger Child.

 

We will also practise our joined up handwriting, exploring statements, questions and exclamation sentences. The following link explains exclamation sentences for the purposes of the primary curriculum: https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-an-exclamation-sentence.

In phonics we will be looking at the /s/ sound spelt with a “c” before e, i and y, in words such as certificate, city and cylinder.

In maths we will continue our focus on place value, identifying larger and smaller numbers, and using the ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’ symbols (https://www.theschoolrun.com/greater-than-less-than-symbols.) We will also introduce counting in 3s.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood & Mrs Hay


Week commencing 14/9/20

 

In last week’s English lessons we started learning the story of The Tiger Child, a folk tale from India. This week we will be looking at the different sentence types within the story, focusing particularly on statements punctuated with a full stop and questions with a question mark.

 

In phonics we will be looking at the /s/ sound, spelt as “ce” as in fence, dance, prince or voice. Phonics sheets will be completed in school but will be sent home each day in children’s phonics folders.

Should you wish to support your child at home it would be good practice to read through the sheets together, focusing /s/ written as “ce” in each word.

This week’s maths lessons will focus on place value, identifying tens and ones in 2-digit numbers, as well as revision of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood & Mrs Hay
