General Class Information 

Our context for learning overviews

 

We teach through half term or termly contexts for learning and will keep you updated on what exciting experiences we have got planned each week. Please see below for an overview of our context for learning which will give you an idea of what exciting experiences the children may have during the context. 

Just to say we all hope you have had a wonderful break and enjoyed some quality time with your child. As a team we are really looking forward to the new term ahead and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your continued support during the first term in Year 2. A special thank you for all of the lovely gifts, cards and warm wishes we received at the end of term. We look forward to seeing your children bright eyed and bushy tailed on Monday! 

Happy New Year to you all.

The Year 2 Team.

Weekly learning experiences

 

Please check this section regularly to see what learning experiences are being offered to the children each week. 

 

 

In Year 2 this week we are investigating mini beasts through sculpture, describing and classifying them. We are using branching on hwb, researching mini beasts and creating independent fact files. We are also enjoying using programmable toys to move around mini beast mats.

 

Using the Penpals scheme we are further developing our handwriting, with many of us starting to join.

 

In welsh we are practising our language patterns, learning prayers, participating in assemblies and continuing with our daily Helpwr Heddiw roles.

 

In readiness for our end of year assessments we are revisiting our previous topics in maths and continuing to practise reading scales of weight, temperature and capacity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our new context will be called WRIGGLE AND CRAWL and will be all about minibeasts.

Ways to help at home

 

  • Make sure your child reads some of the books on bug club each week.
  • Make sure your child completes the maths games on abacus each week.
  • Choose a bingo activity from your child's homework book.
  • Visit the library and read new books. Try to read some factual books and ask your child questions about what they have read. 
  • Practise counting backwards from 100-1 and backwards from different starting points. 
  • Practise doubles up to 40.
  • Practise number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.
  • Practise months of the year, days of the week and seasons (and how to write them). 
  • Begin to practise telling the time-o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.
  • Talk to your child about everything you do with them and ask them lots of questions!
  • Have fun together.
