Welcome to Year Two!
Welcome to the Year Two class page! My name is Miss Mc Ardle and I am the lucky Year Two class teacher. 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 Tuesday and Friday afternoon. Children will take part in Rugby Tots lessons on a Tuesday 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.
Children will take home buster books every Friday for homework. Children are expected to complete 2 pages in each book and return it to school by the following Thursday for it to be marked. 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.
We found out that our class text will be Dogger! We really enjoyed reading our new book as a class. Today we read the first four pages of our book and identified the characters. We then worked in pairs to use the text to find adjectives! This will help us to write descriptive sentences tomorrow!
Today Year 2 began to explore their first History topic. We asked relevant questions to find out more about the past. We were then given sources to explore and answer questions. We found out we will be learning about Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks!
