Forest School Continues in June.
In Summer 2 Term, from Wednesday 12th May until 7th July 2021 , something very exciting is going to be happening! Every Wednesday afternoon Year 2 will be having Forest School as part of their enrichment timetable. This will involve being outside and working in whatever weathers so the children need to be dressed appropriately for the environment they will be working in and the changing weather conditions.
Therefore, each Wednesday for the rest of the school, your child should come to school NOT wearing their school uniform. They need to wear the following:
- Old, warm clothes that you do not mind your child getting dirty e.g. an old pair of tracksuit bottoms, warm jumper or sweatshirt and an old T-shirt
- Old, warm waterproof coat
- Suncream and a hat (for very sunny weather)
- Drinks Bottle - with water inside
Please also ensure that your child comes into school with a labelled plastic carrier bag containing a pair of wellington boots and a pair of warm long socks.
Thankyou for your support and co-operation.
If there is any further remote learning then the email contact for me, children, if you have any issues is, firstname.lastname@example.org between 9am and 3pm during the school day or through j2 messages (BGFL) or the Class Blog.
If parents if you need to get in touch with me it's still through the email@example.com link.
The class password for Big Maths is Strose2 and the password for active learn is Strose2019 as I know many of you have been struggling with them. The class password for read theory is strose123

Welcome to Year 2
In year 2, we love to learn new things and build on the skills and talents God has given us. Our class page is a way of showing you what we have been learning in our lessons whilst also informing you about important things that might be coming up during the weeks and months ahead.
Please visit our class page regularly to see who our star of the week is, what we'll be learning about in English and Maths along with all of the other wonderful things that we do in Year 2!

Year 2, all took the phonics check (30th November to 4th December) which replaced the original date in June 2020 that was cancelled due to the Coronavirus.
If your child needs to revisit the test, in June 2021, we will be continuing to practise everyday throughout the rest of the year with those children.
If you have passed the phonics then you will not have a phonics reading book from March 2021.
We completed 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
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.
Year 2 Class Wish
