Welcome to Year 2H

 

Welcome to our Year 2 page. I hope you had a good break and are all excited to be back to school. We have got lots of exciting things to learn about this year and a lot to cram into this half-term. We will be learning about Healthy life-choices in Science and Aviation and space travel in History. 

 

 

In Literacy, we are using Traction Man' as our core text. We will be writing all about the characters thoughts and feelings and retelling the story through drama, repeated writing and descriptive language. We will also be have 2 phonic lessons a day along with 2 reading sessions a day. 

 

In Numeracy, we will be learning all about place value, addition and subtraction and beginning to learn our 2x, 5x and 10x multiplication tables. We will learn how to solve a variety of multiplication and division problems and will look at Fractions.

 

Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to aid learning. Take a look at our planning documents to find out more about what we will be learning this year.

 

P.E.

Children will not require their PE kits for the Autumn term due to the change of uniform policy. Our PE session will be on a Tuesday morning so please send your children in the appropriate clothing and footwear. PE will predominantly happen outside.

 

Spellings

Children will be given a spelling list every Friday. Please ensure your child practises these everyday as there will be a test on a Friday. To support them further, encourage children to use a dictionary to find their meaning as well as form sentences with the words given.

 

Learning Logs

Children will be given learning log challenges each half-term which is linked to the work they will be covering in their topics. Please look at our homework grid below. It states how many tasks need to be completed. Remember to encourage children to be creative and share their learning in different ways. Work can be completed and uploaded onto Dojo when finished to reduce the number of things being brought into school and can be electronically marked.

 

Books

Reading books will be changed every Friday. Please ensure that books and signed reading diaries are in school for those days. Reading book, upon return, will be quarantined for 72 hours before they will be recirculated. It is important that your child reads every day. This can be done independently or with the help of an adult or older sibling. Please also ask the children questions about their book to check their understanding.

 

Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS)

The children will have been given their logins for Times Tables Rock Stars. They can access the application at home on a laptop or iPad/tablet and even get the opportunity to play against each other or myself some evenings. Please encourage your child to access TTRS at home as this will give them much needed practice of the multiplication facts they are unsure of.

Online Learning

Dear Parents,
I was really hoping that this wouldn't happen to our class but it's a situation that we all know could happen at anytime. The good news is that the school has acted quickly and appropriately to ensure that the children are safe. You have all received a letter with guidance, please read this carefully and please make sure that we all follow the appropriate advice as we all want to be back in school together as soon as possible.
I feel extremely upset at this moment, as we were just getting back to normal and the children have worked so hard since the being of this term are were all enjoying being class again.
For me personally it has been an absolute joy teaching your kids and I will ensure that they have high quality online learning everyday that would have been taught within the classroom. I will be posting work on this site everyday for the children to complete. This work will come with supporting videos and photos that will help and support, not only them, but for you to understand and support them to complete. I would like the children to work independently as much as possible, but they will need support as the concepts and learning will be new to them. This is where the videos will help them understand and help you support them.
I would appreciate that all the children complete their daily tasks and then take photos of their completed work so I can see it and approve it. Every lesson will have a marking video the day after, these videos will allow the children to mark their work and make any corrections. These videos will help explain any mistakes or misconceptions that the children may have.
I will be posting the daily tasks throughout the morning and expect all of them to be completed with photos of the finished work.
We have worked extremely hard this term to get the children back on track and these 2 weeks are vital that they continue to progress and learn. This is our responsibility to ensure that our children keep to a school routine and keep learning through this difficult time and not treat this as a holiday, we need to keep learning. I am very grateful for all of your support in keeping the children engaged and focused through the next 2 weeks.
If you have any questions regarding work please message me on this site, however I will not be contactable during school times. If you have any questions regarding school please contact the school office.

Thank you for all your support
Mr Hyde

Class Dojo

 

For the next two weeks all the children will be accessing and completing their work using the Class Dojo app. I will post work on here if you have any problems with Class Dojo so you'll be able to access it using this website. However the supported videos will only be accessible on Class Dojo, so please continue to use the Class Dojo app as the main source of learning as all the videos, input, marking and messaging will be done on there.

 

Due to the swiftness of closing both Year 2 classes the online learning will start from Monday 28th September. Your child has taken most of there books home, I will also be providing supporting packs so they can continue to follow the learning that was planned to be delivered in class. Please ensure that your child looks after the books and packs very carefully as they will need them back at school when they return.

 

Thank You

Welcome to Year 2H

 

Welcome to our Year 2 page. I hope you had as good a Summer break as possible and you are all excited to be back to school learning again. We have got lots of exciting things to learn about this year and a lot to cram into this half-term. We totally understand that due to uncertain times and online learning that the children may have missed vital learning last year. Therefore this first half term will be reviewing the children's understanding of Year 1 concepts and learning while introducing new Year 2 learning. This is going to be a tough time for us all, as we have to try and return to a normal everyday school routine. But please do not worry as the children will be learning in a safe and fun environment that will support them educationally and emotionally.

 

 

In Literacy, we are using ‘The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge as our core text.

In Numeracy, we will be learning all about place value, addition and subtraction and beginning to learn our 2x, 5x and 10x multiplication tables. We will learn how to read, write, order and compare numbers up to 100 and beyond, identify a digit’s place value (Hundreds, Tens and Ones), and count from 0 in jumps of 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100. We will also learn how to mentally add 1, 10 and 100 to a number as well as using formal column method to add and subtract numbers.

Art Week. In art we have been creating pieces of formal art for our hall display. We used different techniques, such as, rubbings, printing and frottage to create our final art pieces. This has been lots of fun and the children created some amazing artwork.

In Literacy we have been looking at the book 'The Lonely Beast'. The children have produced some fantastic written pieces and have worked together to act out and freeze frame different parts of the story.

Dear Parents,

This is a document of some guidelines around and in school regarding Covid-19 safeguarding.
Please read this document to ensure we all follow the guidance. We are trying our very best to keep all the children, parents and staff safe. 
Thank you
