Welcome to Year 2
This year, Argentina class is being taught by Mrs Hanger and Peru class by Miss Janes and we are very lucky to be supported in the classroom by Mrs Patel, Mrs da Silva, Mrs Emsden-Gurdev and Mrs Preston
This year we will be covering a range of exciting topics.
Term 1: Muck, Mess and Mixtures
Term 2:Fire, Fire!
Term 3: Land Ahoy
Term 4: Our Planet
Term 5: Castles
Term 6: On Safari
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.
This year we have made the move to Read Write Inc Phonics. This means that we are now sending books home electronically via Oxford Owl. Your child will also visit the school library once a week to choose a book to bring home.
We will be using Class Dojo to share our learning, our achievements and important class news. We are excited about the wonderful Year ahead!
