Y2 Gospel Assembly

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

Good afternoon

Please click on the link below to access our PowerPoint for our Gospel assembly on Monday.  You can find your child's lines at the bottom of the slides.  Some children have more than one part to learn.  Most children indicated which parts they wished to read.

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Thank you

Good morning, everyone

This week we are preparing for our Gospel assembly which is next Monday.  Our Gospel assembly is the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time.  We will be practising this during our usual Comprehension slot (RWI children will still go to RWI sessions - but will be given a part in the assembly).

Please help your child to practise their line/s at home so that they are confident and happy with them.  I will be sending them home from tomorrow.

Timetable (updated)

Have a great week.

Year 2 Homework WC 20.6.22

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

Hi Year 2 and Year 2 grownups, 

Another brilliant week for Year 2. Some brilliant writing in literacy and some directions dancing with Hip Hop Grannie in maths. Here's the link to the song and dance for you all to have a wiggle to at home, and to practice our key vocabulary in maths. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-position-&-direction/zhh9scw

Reading Homework

As always, it is really important to keep up that reading as we work towards year 3 and so children can become fluent readers enjoying books for pleasure. We suggest that all children read at least 3 times a week. For our children in Read Write Inc groups you must start reading your RWI storybook first and then read a book of your choice. Here are our home work links for Read Write Inc group children to practice sounds at home:

For children in comprehension with Miss Dyson please remember to choose a reading for pleasure book from the classroom to take home and return it as soon as you've finished to replace with a new book. It's really important that we practice our school value of stewardship by looking after and returning classroom books promptly. 

Maths Homework:

Here are the links to our 2 recommended sites Numbots and Sumdog. Let's see if we can get really high scores to impress Mrs Waller with on Thursday!



Extra Activity

We will be looking closely at glossary's in our topic work, so it would be brilliant if you could practice making a glossary all of your own. A glossary is a list of key terms with definitions for you to help teach others all about the subject. You start from A and work your way through the alphabet. Here's an example of a glossary:

If you have any questions please do ask me :)

Lots of love

Here is the timetable for week commencing 13th June.

See you all tomorrow.

Y1 & Y2 Yorkshire Sculpture Park Visit 2022

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

Good afternoon

I hope your children have come home full of the fun of the day.  We were so lucky to have been guided around the park by such a talented and fun artist as Natalie.  The children loved her sense of humour and all the fun activities that she had them doing.  We learned about sculptures, drew sculptures, used clay to create a sculpture and built our own large, group sculptures out of re-purposed materials.

We were so proud of the children in the way that they used their imaginations and shared their ideas with each other and the artist.  Their behaviour was perfect and the artist said how hard they had worked and how intelligent their answers had been.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

More photos to follow.

Have a great weekend.
