Year 2 2019 - 2020
Parents and Families of Year 2
Home Learning in Year 2
As you are aware, the school has been closed for the foreseeable future. From now on, all Year 2 pupils will need to access the school website by logging in under the “student login” at the top of the Year 2 page (instructions below).
Home learning is a new aspect to teaching for both families and schools and whilst we have done our utmost to ensure this runs smoothly, there may be teething problems. For any queries on this, or any aspect of your child’s home learning, please contact me by email.
As I will either be working from home or in school, I will be available to respond to emails between 9am and 330pm. Replies may be not immediate, but I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Before Easter, I sent home packs of English and maths work. The children have also brought home maths, English and handwriting exercise books to use for their work. I talked these through with the children before school closed.
Each week, I will be setting work, via the website, for the subjects we usually teach in school. I recommend that you log-in with your child as often as possible to check for updates to the homework or discussion items. As well as English and maths, I will also set topic work such as history, geography, art and science tasks. I will aim to set a range of work: some will require the use of a laptop or tablet whereas other will not rely on electronic devices. Of course, I really encourage the children to be reading on a daily basis too.
If you wish, you can upload photographs of your child's work in a number of ways. Either use the "upload homework" tab on the green page or you can add a photo in the homework or discussion item pages. Your child can also make a digital scrapbook of their work to share with me. Whichever way you choose, it is a great way for me to keep in touch with the class.
I am very sorry not to be spending the regular time with our class. Your children have been an absolute pleasure to teach so far this year. It has been wonderful to see them grow in confidence and show their understanding of our learning. We are still Team Year 2 and I am still your teacher!
I hope that all our families are able to stay healthy and happy over the upcoming weeks and I look forward to seeing you again when schools return. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the meantime.
With kind regards and best wishes

Spring Term 2019-2020
I'm looking forward to another exciting term of learning with you in Year 2.
In English we will continue to look at word classes and use phonics and grammar knowledge to spell accurately. We will write character descriptions, letters, adventure stories, recounts and poetry.
Please keep reading with your child at home to build up stamina to read for longer periods of time. It is also important to talk about the book to check their understanding. Are there words they can read but perhaps don't understand the meaning of? It is helpful to read a variety of texts including non-fiction and poetry. In school our reading will focus on comprehension questions, using the texts to find the answer.
In Maths we will revisit taught strategies for subtraction and addition and use number knowledge to solve problems and sequences. We will continue to work on multiplication and division and work with fractions. We will begin to learn times tables by memory. The children will use all their maths knowledge to reason and problem solve. We are learning the importance of self checking and using maths jottings to support our answers.
We will also be busy in science, art, music, ICT, geography and more plus we will continue to be active in PE lessons, and on our field track.
Homework in Year 2:
Maths homework- This should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Maths homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday.
