Our Class Mission Statement
Year 2 pulling their silliest faces!
Home Learning Offer - What to expect
Daily video call sessions with the entire class on Google Classrooms before each morning (9 – 9.30am) and afternoon (1 – 1.30pm) session. All sessions will be recorded.
Availability to support an individual in need for duration of the lesson – children have a chance to ask questions during the live video and ask questions on the classroom stream.
Reply to emails between parent and teacher within 24 hours
A daily (morning and afternoon) register of pupil attendance will be kept. Consistent absenteeism from daily video call sessions, or consistently not submitting completed work should be followed up by the class teacher.
Online contact with teacher (via Google Classrooms) from 8.45am – 3.30pm.
What do we expect of your child?
Daily attendance at morning and afternoon video call sessions by logging into Google Classrooms with unique log in.
Be ‘school ready’ – dress appropriately as if it were a school mufti (no pyjamas please!) and have all exercise books and resources ready for the lesson.
Work in an appropriate learning space (not a bedroom) without the distraction of TV or radio noise around.
Ensure behaviour on the daily video calls is appropriate and their very best.
All pupils should engage in the live video call rather than be distracted or passive.
Complete the independent work to the very best of their ability.
Submit the completed work on Google Classrooms at the end of the day.
Use of Google Classrooms is for work related chat only.
Non-negotiable expectations in presentation will continue as they would in school.
PE days are Tuesdaysand Thursdays. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE on these days.
Homelearning has begun!
This is designed to support the children with work done in class; spellings, number fluency and reading, additionally sending home some ideas for enrichment activities!
Homelearning will be sent out every Friday, to be returned on a Wednesday.
Following on from Meerkat Mail, we have decided to delve into some Meerkat Christmas inspired writing in Year 2 during the latter part of term 2. Here, we see Sunny searching for the perfect Christmas.. He explores all over the world but finally realises that being home is what truly matters.
This term we are looking at Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert. They are all very close, so close, in fact, that one day Sunny decides he's had enough and packs his bags. He's off to visit his mongoose cousins. But from the watery world of the Marsh Mongoose to the nocturnal lifestyle of the Malagasy Mongoose, Sunny just doesn't fit in. And who's that shadowy figure who seems to be following him around?
We are looking at the book 'Here we are' by Oliver Jeffers this term. It it, we are exploring how incredible the world we live in actually is. Exploring how peoples differences can educate us and how the environment can shape us.
A wonderful term
As Term 1 comes to a close I have found some of our 'best bits'. We have secured our understanding of place value, thought about our environment and our place in the world through our English work, taken part in some fantastic sports and learnt all about Florence Nightingale!
Have a wonderful half term and I'll see you in Term 2!
We were incredibly fortunate to have In2Sport visit us again. This time they brought us Soft Archery! Lots of fun was had, especially playing the 'pizza game'.
Exploring the cover of Here We Are!
Using the clocks to check the time! Excellent work Year 2!
We were very lucky to have In2Sport visit us and teach us some Lacrosse skills. Usually a KS2 sport, Year 2 put in a tremendous effort.
