Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

We had a wonderful term up until Christmas welcoming the children back into school and getting our routines in place. We worked hard on revisiting phonics before completing the screening before Christmas. 

This year  we will be supporting the children in developing their independence in preparation for Lower Key Stage 2. 

In Year 2 we have:

2SC - Mrs Czyrko

2AP - Mrs Preece

We are lucky that Mrs Foster and Mrs Allen support us in the classroom. Mrs Mayne will also teach in Year 2 to cover PPA. 

Our outdoor P.E. day is Tuesday, we will come to school in our kits including trainers. Children will not need to bring uniform to change into.

Our Learning

We will be adopting a 'Mantle of the Expert' approach to our teaching and learning.  Within the context a story or dilemma, we become 'experts' providing the children with purposeful opportunities for learning.  This allows the children to learm across the curriculum in a fun, purposeful and imaginative way. 

World Book Day

Keep your eyes peeled for information relating to World Book Day on 4th March 2021. 

 Why not read your way around the world with the Oxford Owl Reading Miles Global Challenge!

Children can collect 500 reading miles for every 10 minutes they spend reading, either alone or with a parent, carer, teacher or brother or sister. They can even video call you or their relatives to read aloud to. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the Oxford Owl online books for something new to read. 

Print out the reading miles passport below to begin the reading world tour - a whopping 33,000 miles (or 11 hours) in total! 

The challenge is split into seven journeys, each of which finishes in a ‘checkpoint city’. At each city, research the place they have arrived at and send a postcard back to school by uploading it to Seesaw.
