I ask for Your help as I begin this new school year.
Allow me to experience Your presence in the many blessings You put before me.
Open my eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.
Open my heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.
Open my heart so I will be enthusiastic in my lessons
Give me courage to accept new opportunities.
Help me to listen to my teachers.
Jesus, inspire me to do my best this year!
Return to School 11.3.21
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!
Mrs Woodley and I are really excited to have you back in school again and hope that we all have a great remainder of the Spring and Summer Term.
The newsletter about the return to school can be found here about the return to school on 8/3/21
From Monday 8th March
Just a reminder that the children's Y2 bubble are to come into school at 8.55am and finish school at 3.20pm (12.55pm on a Friday) as before. The entrance to/from school is still the gates for our playground. If you need to give any messages to either of us please telephone the office and these will be passed onto us (in line with the COVID 19 school guidance). We are so glad that the children are coming back to us and can't wait to get back to 'normal.'
The next holiday dates as follows:
Break up: Thursday 1st April at 3.20pm
Return: Tuesday 20th April at 8.55am
Have a great Easter holiday break!

Dr Gould & Mrs Woodley
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
In Class, on 4th September, we created our class wish for this academic year. The children came up with the wording and I think it reflects exactly what a beautiful class of children they are.
What are we doing next week in Year 2?
The work below is for 19th - 23rd April 2021.
English : The Not-So Scary Snorklum by Paul Bright and Jane Chapman
Reading: To predict what
might happen in the Snorklum story and make links with other stories they've read.
The children will will look
at identifying prepositions in a variety of sentences.
Writing: to plan a character description based on The Not
So Scary Snorklum.
Writing: the edit and drafting
session will be to describe the Snorklum's character, appearance
and personality based on their plan.
To compare water levels in containers 'least amount' and 'greatest amount.'
To compare the water in different containers using the same unit of measurement (cups).
Measuring liquid in litres and estimating 'more than 1l, less than 1l and about 1l.'
Measuring liquid in Millilitres
and then looking at measuring volume of liquid in containers.
There are homework activities and home learning ideas on the Maths and English sections for supporting your learning.
There is an expectation that children should still be completing spellings (j2blast), ttrockstars, numbots, read theory, big maths and active learn throughout the week. Housepoints are awarded for doing these activities.
There are lots of resources for Maths and English if you are at home due to either illness or self isolating. Just look under the tabs below for the latest activities and put the work on the class blog so we can all see what work you've been doing...
There are daily lessons for both Maths and English so you can keep up with what we are doing in class but there are also the remote learning from the spring term which you may want to revisit.
