Welcome to the Year Two Blog

Keep an eye on this blog to find out what we have been learning about this half term.
Below you will also find the timetable and homework for this week.

Year 2 Class Blog

Homework 30.9.22

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

Hello everyone


 - Children should be bringing in their book-bag every day.  This is primarily so that I can listen to children read, test them on their spellings or give them items to take home safely.  Children will not be allowed to take a book home without a book bag.  All children without book-bags were given one on the first Friday of the half-term (clear plastic bag with handle).

 - Names should be in all cardigans and jumpers so that they can be returned promptly when misplaced.

 - The morning task begins at 8:30 every morning.  Children who arrive at this time gain 15 minutes extra practice on key skills every day, compared to those who arrive at 8:45 or after.  

RWI sounds:

Please allow your children to practice the sounds they have been taught this week.  It makes such a big difference!

Blending group (Mrs Shore):

Green group (Miss Jubb):

Blue group (Miss Dyson):

Grey group (Mrs Waller):

Spellings (little, yellow book):

Children have been assessed.  New spellings should now be in their books.  Ticks mean they have correctly read (r) or spelled (s) that word.  A dot means that they have either read or spelled the word incorrectly.  Please practice these words along with new ones.

Children have started learning about the great inventor, Alexander Graham Bell this week.  They can test their knowledge on the Kahoot! Quiz below:

Week Beginning Monday 26th September 2022

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

Good morning Year 2, and families of Year 2

This morning, children have a special online session with Ann Foxley-Johnson about anti-bullying.  They will complete a simple activity, following on from this, about how to be confident in being unique.  It's a really important message, I think you'll agree. 

Children have topic this afternoon, which will be History this week, followed by DT in tomorrow's afternoon session.

The rest of the week follows the usual pattern:  Science and PE on Wednesday, Come and See/ICT on Thursday and Forest School on Friday.

We hope you all have a fabulous week, searching faithfully for excellence!

Miss Dyson, Mrs Waller and Miss Jubb

Good morning, Year 2, and families of Year 2

Here is the PowerPoint from the Meet the Teacher virtual meeting.

Please note:  due to the shorter week, there are no new spellings in the children's spelling books.  We were unable to test all children.  We will resume putting spellings in books from next week.  

Please access the appropriate links below in order for your child to practice the sounds that they have covered in RWI this week:
