Welcome to Year 2
This year, Argentina class is being taught by Mr de Brito and Peru class by Miss Janes and we are very lucky to be supported in the classroom by, Mrs Patel, Miss Pierce and Mrs da Silva
This year we will be covering a range of exciting topics.
Term 1: The Magic Paintbrush
Term 2: The Great Fire of London
Term 3: Pirates
Term 4: The Snail and the Whale/Plastic Pollution
Term 5: Castles
Term 6: Amazing Animals
These topics will be the focus for the children’s literacy and wider curriculum work. We will plan a range of engaging and exciting lessons to bring these topics to life! Look out for the ‘Home Learning’ menu on the school website and on your child’s Class Dojo page.
The children will complete the Phonics Screening check in December, it will be completed 1:1 with their class teacher and will be treated as a fun reading activity. The children will also be completing the maths and reading SATS in Term 5. Again, these will be treated as fun activites/quizzes without any pressure on the children.
Reading is a very important part of your child’s learning and all children should be reading at home at least three times a week. The class teacher or teaching assistant will also listen to the children reading at least once a week in school. If you are interested in volunteering to come into the class to read with the children, please get in touch with the school office.
We will be using Class Dojo to share our learning, our achievements and important class news. We are excited about the wonderful Year ahead!
