Homework 24th September 2021

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2 Class Blog

Hello everyone

Your homework this week is as follows:


 - Read at least 3 times per week.  Read your RWI books if you are in a RWI group and read your chosen free-choice book if you are in my Comprehension group.  If you've enjoyed the book, maybe you could write a short book review to recommend it to others.  Sometimes, these recommendations make it to the newsletter if you are particularly convincing!


 - Spend 5-10 minutes on each online learning game:  Sumdog, Numbots and TT Rockstars.


 - Find out about Charles Macintosh or John Dunlop.  Present your findings however you wish - a poster, a paragraph or even a quiz!


Children collect stickers in class for work that demonstrates a commitment to searching faithfully for excellence.  If your child would like to share their homework with the rest of the class, please do let me know via email (or by sending a message through your child).  I would love to reward some stickers for high quality homework.

Thanks for your support in helping to provide your child with quality learning experiences in school and at home.  Any problems, please email me directly on:  y2@olsj.org.uk

Good evening, Y2, and Grown-ups of Y2

Just a few messages:

 - The passing out of logins has been delayed until tomorrow due to a difficulty when printing.  The problem has now been rectified and logins will be sent home at the end of the day tomorrow.

 - The Kahoot! quiz is active and it has been introduced to children this afternoon, during our topic lesson (see previous blog).

 - Please remember that the only drink that should be brought into school, for use throughout the school day, is water.  This does not apply to drinks in lunchboxes, but these must be consumed with their dinner and not at other times.

 - Show and Tell in Y2 is only for special items such as certificates, medals and awards and will be done on an adhoc basis, time permitting.  Children may also choose to share their homework with the class, should they wish to.  News can be shared as well.  Please dissuade your child from bringing in toys of any kind to school.

 - Please make sure that cardigans and jumpers are labelled with your child's name.

Have a lovely evening.  The children have been AMAZING today!

Good morning Y2 and Grown-ups of Y2

I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend.  I enjoyed being in my garden when the sun was out.  What did you choose to do?

This week we will be having a history focus.  We learn who Amy Johnson is and why we remember her.  Can you remember what significant means?  Do you think that Amy Johnson is significant? 

Here's a Kahoot! Quiz to test your knowledge and understanding:


Game PIN: 0352898

In literacy, we give instructions for how to build a kite.  We learn about alliteration and practise imperative verbs and positive adjectives.  We continue to think about how we can 'hook' the reader with our use of language and questions.

Here is our timetable for week 4.

Please note:  Passwords for Sumdog, TT Rockstars and Numbots will be given out today.  Children already have a copy in school but we will endeavour to photocopy them and send the home with children at the end of the day.

Any problems, or celebrations, please email:  y2@olsj.org.uk
