Donations for Harvest Festival

 

On Thursday14th October we will be celebrating Harvest Festival.

 

Harvest is an exciting time where we will be talking to the children in class about different foods, where it comes from and how we can help other countries around the world. It links with our Science topic about plants we eat that we are doing presently.

 

On Wednesday 14th October we will be collecting  together all the tins and packets of food etc from what has been sent in and distributing to the church food bank. It would be wonderful if each child in the class could bring at least one tin or packet of food in which we can then donate to charities and people in need. If you are able to spare anything then it will be greatly appreciated as in this unprecedented times there is a lot of local food needs.

Friday 1st October 2021

On Friday 1st October we are having an own clothes day to raise money for the charity 'Macmillian Cancer Support'. Everyone can come to school wearing green, that day, to support Macmillian. We kindly ask that if you wear your own clothes this Friday you please bring in a donation of £1 for this fantastic charity. As a school we want to raise as much money as we can so if you do come in your own clothes, please bring £1 too.

If you go to the life of the class you can see the pictures of what they wore!

Monday 20th September

The individual and Y2 whole class photo will be on Monday 20th September 2021.

Phonics Check

Year 2 will be taking the national phonics check (29th November to 3rd December 2021) which replaced the original date in June 2021 that was cancelled due to the Coronavirus. 

 

If your child needs to revisit the test, in June 2022, then we will be continuing to practise everyday throughout the rest of the year with those children. 

 

If you pass the phonics then you will not have a phonics reading book from January 2022.

 

We are presently completing lots of catch up phonic sessions building up to the check but please practice your sounds everyday. If you want to find the resources then click on the link below.

We have also been using in class (as extra sessions)

which is the 'Letters and Sounds for Home and School' for the Y2 autumn term phonics screen check revision sessions. If you wish to support your child then this is great for revising what we are doing in class.
