Winning House Team
In Year 2 we enjoy learning and finding out new things about our wonderful world. We grow in independence and we love challenges. We are resilient, we try our best and we have positive, growth mindsets. We love learning from our mistakes and shining all day!
We started our year focusing on the whole-school theme of Enterprise before exploring how the high street has changed in South Milford. In Spring, we will be learning about living things and their habitats and we will be developing our computing coding skills. In the Summer term, we will be finding out about explorers before focusing on alternative versions of traditional stories and fairytales. This builds on our understanding of traditional stories from Year 1! We will also be developing our DT skills with pizza making and moon buggy creations.
We set homework each Friday on Google Classroom.
This will include:
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays.
However, we like to ensure the children are always prepared. Please ensure that all PE clothes are named and the children have the correct clothes with them for inside and outside.
Go Read: https://go-read.co.uk/
Every child has access to their online Go Read reading record. Any books read at home, whether this is a book from school or a home book, can be logged on here. This will be regularly checked by the teaching staff.
All the children have a Numbots account which we would encourage them to access for at least 5 minutes each day to develop their knowledge of key number facts. Later in the year, the children will be moved on to Times Table Rockstars (TTRS) to practice multiplication facts too.
Topmarks has a wealth of resources and games to access. Please explore the ‘Key Stage 1’ games.
BBC Supermovers: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers
We use BBC Supermovers and GoNoodle frequently in class, offering the children active brain breaks and opportunities to learn.
