Mr Andrews, Mrs Skipper and Mrs Hart
Year 2 had a wonderful day thinking about the good news that Jesus brings to Christians. We also thought about why Jesus had disciples, to spread his good news and performed some wonderful drama linked to a Bible story called 'Jesus calls Matthew'. We found that Jesus is a friend to all and forgiveness is a really important value to share. You can see some of our photos below!
We have all had a lovely first week in Year 2 and have started to learn about this term's theme of 'Fire and Light'. It has been wonderful to see so many excited faces, eager to begin the school year with such enthusiasm and positivity!
PE - this will be on a Monday and a Tuesday. Please leave PE kits in school and they will be sent home each half term for a wash.
Reading - we will read everyday as a whole class and each child will read individually at least once a week. Please ensure that your child has their book and diary in school everyday. 15 minutes of daily practise at home will also be a great benefit to your child's progress. Reading books and a reading record will be sent home on Monday and will remain at home until Friday. On Friday, these will be collected in and will be given back on the following Monday.
Spellings - will be uploaded onto the class page of the school website on a Friday (beginning Friday 10th September) and there will be a test the following Friday. Please spend time helping your child to learn these spellings ready for the test. Children will record their test in a book at school however this will no longer be sent home.
Maths – will be given out on a Friday to be returned by the following Friday. Each child will be provided with a photocopied sheet for their homework. The homework encompasses a range of mathematical skills and is valuable in ensuring that the children practise these skills on a weekly basis. In Year 2, the sheets will be handed out on a Friday (beginning 10th September) and will be returned to school the following Friday.
Please see what else we are learning this term in the 'termly plans' folder on our class page.
