Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!

Croeso i Blwyddyn Dau!

 

Teachers: Miss Kent and Mrs Burnett

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Brown, Mr Webber, Mrs Griffiths and Mrs Edmonds

We have had yet another fantastic week.  Every day is filled with learning and enjoyment.   Have a lovely half term holiday.  The children have worked hard all term and have been so enthusiastic about everything we do, they must be tired!   Thank you for your support all through this half term.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday 2nd November.

Half Term Homework- Oracy Presentation

Welsh Castle Presentation

Caerphilly Castle

Castle presentations were fabulous, we really enjoyed listening to these and have all learnt lots!   Thank you.

General Information 

Games is on a Thursday afternoon.   So please can all children come to school prepared for this in their Games kit, suitable for cold weather and ensure trainers are worn.   PE will be completed in class when possible and may vary according to the situation each week.   No kit will be needed for this for the time being.

 

Homework

At the current time homework for Year 2 will consist of weekly spellings and daily reading.   We will add numeracy tasks as and when required and project based work will be given at different points throughout the year, with plenty of notice.

 

Seesaw

 

We have added a small task on Seesaw for the children to practice using the Seesaw tools.  We would like all children to have a go at this activity and submit it through Seesaw.   Thank you.   More blended learning tasks will be set as we go along.

 

Spellings

Our weekly spelling test is on a Friday. New spellings will be posted on this website every Friday ready for the test the following week.   See below for the spellings to be learnt each week.

 

Reading

All children will have received a reading book and reading record book to record what they have read.  Please feel free to use this record book as much or as little as you like.   A general comment with the date is fine, noting tricky words, asking questions for the children to answer... all of these are great ways of supporting your children with their reading.   Please read each day with your child as this will be key to increasing their confidence and their understanding, as well as their general reading ability. 

Please return the book along with the home reading record book on the day stated inside or on the front cover of the record book. 

GIGLETS

Over the next few weeks we will be ensuring the children can log onto their Giglets site and access all the lovely books available to them.   The children will be given their log ins and will be encouraged to access this resource as often as possible.

Spellings to be tested on Friday 11th December.

Apologies for last week.   Mrs B forgot!!  Here they are for this week, a mix of sounds we have been learning for the last few weeks.   This will be the last spellings until after Christmas.
