Year 2

School closure work.

 

We will be setting work daily on ClassDojo but we will upload resources you will need on here. Scroll down to find them! 

We have also shared some ideas for you to do at home too if you wish to. There are a lot of sites offering their things for free. The links to these are below. We may well be using some of these activities over the next few weeks to help you with your child’s learning whilst the school is shut.


Please do share learning that takes place on your child’s class dojo profile. We want to see what they are doing and will be giving our feedback to them. You can also take a photo of the home learning that was due in the week beginning 30th March. 


Please check Class Dojo and here every day for the next learning ideas!


Things you could do throughout the week.


Handwriting- please practise forming letters correctly with clear descenders and ascenders- making sure b, d,h,k,l, and t are all taller than a,c,e,i,m,n,o,r,s,u,v,w,x and z and that f,g,j,p,q and y’s tails go under the line.

Spring Two
 
This half term our topic is:
 
'What is life like in the Savannah?'
 
 
This week we have been given clues so we can try and work out what our topic is about. We looked at photos and other clues hidden in our classrooms. We soon realised that it was to do with Africa and then discovered it was about the Savannah! 
 
We have spent some time this week turning our classrooms in to the Savannah. 
 
The book we are using for our topic is ;
'One day on our blue planet in the Savannah'
 
 
 
General Information
 
PE is every Wednesday and Friday for Whales and Thursday and Friday's for Dolphins.
 
There is no 'book change day', children can change their books when they have finished them. 
We are often asked how we teach certain things in Maths, you will find the full details in our calculation policy and would encourage to look there too but we thought this guides would give you an insight on just one of the ways we teach. 

 
 
Our children became poets!
 
During ECO week the children went outside and used their senses to think about what they could hear, see, feel and smell in the autumn. They then wrote a sentence about what they had experienced and in groups arranged their sentences to create a poem. We then asked the children to present their poems however they liked. 
 
Have a look at one of their wonderful poems below. 
We wanted to show you how we add and subtract in Year 2!
