Information regarding COVID-19
If this happens, I will email you a letter containing information about what to do whilst at home. There will be work set for you to complete at home, if you are well enough. The work can be accessed via the files section on MS Teams, the same platform we used during lockdown. You need to email your work to me/bring it in on your return. There will be work only, no live lessons.
If we needed to close our bubble, again you will receive a letter from school with information about what to do whilst at home. We will go back to the system we used during lockdown, meeting twice daily online for live lessons (9:15am&1:30pm) and setting work online, all via MS Teams.
If you have any questions/need to send me work, please email me using the address: email@example.com
Ways to support your child at home:
Please find below links to useful documents that can offer some guidance as to how you can support your child at home. They will also give you an understanding of what a year 2 child is expected to know by the end of the year.
You can also find websites that they can go on to, to support their learning and to support your understanding of the year 2 curriculum. Also, you can visit the curriculum pages on the website for more information.
As you are aware, at school we follow the big maths curriculum. This half term, we are having a big focus on basic number and calculation in order to recover and fill gaps that have been created due to COVID. Below, you can see a picture of our maths area, as well as guidance on how to support your child with their maths homework. The layout of the maths homework is designed in line with our curriculum focus on revisiting old learning, alongside any new learning, in order to keep those plates spinning! Any questions, please feel free to ask me via your child's homework book!
Reading and writing
Children will still continue to learn their sounds and reading skills through RWI. Please continue to use the reading books at home to encourage word reading development, as well as understanding the text.
For the remainder of the term, we will be reading a story where a character goes on a journey. Please help your child learn this at home.
This half term in RE, we will be looking at the topics: books, thanksgiving and opportunities. As well as this, we will continue to have our daily acts of worship either as a class or whole school (virtually).
Take a look below at our RE area in class, as well as our knowledge organisers.
We will continue to be using the TenTen resources for RSE, and we are now using a programme called 1 decision to teach PHSE.
Science, History and Geography
This term in science, we will cover a range of topics at a basic/advanced level. The idea is we then revisit these topics again later on in the year at a deeper level. So we will cover everything from plants, to animals, to materials and more!
Within History we are looking at: The Moon Landings, The Plague, The Great Fire of London and The Battle of Hastings. In Geography we are having a focus on the UK countries and their capital cities, looking at key landmarks and both physical and human features. Below you can find knowledge organisers for these topics to discuss with children at home, as well as examples of our learning journeys.
