Welcome to Year Two!
Welcome to the Year Two class page! My name is Miss Greer and I am the lucky Year Two class teacher, children will be assisted in their learning by Miss Duffy. Please take the time to explore our class page and see just how fantastic Year Two are. Don't forget to also check out our 'curriculum' page to find out more about what we are learning this year.
This term PE will be taught on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Children will take part in Gymnastics lessons on a Wednesday and Games sessions on a Friday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school each week as it is vital for health and safety reasons that children are wearing the correct PE uniform and pumps. PE kits can be purchased from the office.
Homework will be handed out every Friday and it should be returned by the following Thursday. The purpose of homework is to review what the children have learnt in class each week. Children will also take home spellings each week to practise at home.
A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged. Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased at the main office. Children's reading books will be changed once a week.
This term in our English lessons we have been reading the story Dogger. We found the pictures of Dogger’s school fair to look really exciting so we decided to create our very own fair for Reception and Year One. To begin we decided on the games we would have, we then created instuctions for the games so the younger children would know how to play. We also created some posters so the other children knew when and where our fair was happening. It was a huge success and we had lots of fun!!
National Poetry Day
To celebrate National Poetry Day we took part in a BBC live lesson on poetry. We learnt about similes, metaphors and alliteration. We created some amazing similes and alliteration of our own.
Since we have started back this term we have been using lots of practical equipment in class exploring the place value of two digit numbers. We have been finding it quite the challenge using equipment such as numicon, place value counters and deans rods to represent different numbers and solve many reasoning problems. We have been thoroughly enjoying this challenge!!
