Quick message from Mrs O'Kane and Mrs Wilson

Hello Year 2! We hope that you are enjoying your new learning experience at home and have had fun completing some of the tasks we have set for you. We understand that this is a little bit different for you and your parents, but as long as you are trying your best and are remembering to be kind to each other, we are happy. We have now uploaded your new learning tasks for the week ahead, which should keep you busy! We are really looking forward to seeing your Home Learning books when school re opens and we are sure that you are working really hard to impress us as you always do in class! Stay safe and remember to find some time to enjoy the beautiful sunshine that we are having at the moment. 

Mrs O'Kane & Mrs Wilson

Home Learning in Year 2

Due to the closure of the school, we have put together a set of home learning activities to support children while they are at home.

Below you will find  a weekly folder. This will include a document outlining the children's tasks for that week and any additional resources they may need to complete them. We are asking that this work is completed in the children's Home Learning book, so that we can evidence what the children have done.    

In addition to this, your child can log into our school website, where they can access activities that have been set by us. Please see the inside of Home Learning books for more details. Set tasks will be visible on their homepage and they can also access the 'Activities' section for additional games and resources. We will be encouraging the children to complete a short blog entry on the school website every day, so that they can share their learning with us. This can be found at the bottom of the children's home page on the school website.

Useful websites

Welcome to Year 2's class page!

We are a class of 18 enthusiastic learners, lead by our teachers: Mrs O'Kane and Mrs Wilson. 

A warm welcome to our class page, where we would like to share our learning with you. On our page you will find pictures, examples of work as well as important notices/dates for your diary. Included at the bottom of the page is an overview of what topics are covered term by term.   

We hope you enjoy being a part of our learning journey!

English

After reading the story Not Now, Bernard!, we sequenced events and looked at how we can use time adverbials and adjectives to retell the story to engage the reader. We used boxing clever to orally rehearse the story using our best performance voices in preparation for writing our own version of the story

Maths

Year 2 are off to a fantastic start! We have been introduced to the Times Table Rockstars app and are using it to learn our times tables. Lots of us have improved our speed and accuracy already! Remember, you can log in at home to practice too. Rapid recall of these facts has a massive impact on children's learning in all areas of Maths, so keep up the good work Year 2! 

Religious Education

We have been reflecting on the Christmas Story, considering how Mary may have felt at each part. We have also been preparing for Advent by taking part in a prayer trail.

Please click on the icon below to get an overview of the curriculm being provided for your child this year.  We are very busy in Year 2 and would love it if you would support us by discussing topics covered in school at home or by visiting the library so we are able to further enhance our knowledge through sharing books.

Times Tables

We use these songs at the start of our Maths lessons as a fun way of learning to count in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. Ask your child to show you their funky moves!

Music in Year 2

We have been keeping a steady pulse and composing simple, repeated patterns and performing them with a good sense of pulse and rhythm.
