This week has flown by! We have been very busy continuing with our topics and getting used to the new normal at school. It was lovely to see and speak to so many of you yesterday in our 'Meet the teacher' zoom. I hope all of your questions were answered and that the guidance for this year was clear. If you have any further questions, please send them in an email to the school office.
This week in English we started using the book mentioned last week, 'Frog and the Stranger'. We will continue to use this next week for our English lessons. In Maths, we continued to practise counting in 2s,5s and 10s and also had a look at the value of each number in a 2 digit number. We will continue this next week to secure understanding.
Home learning will be the same as last week as we await the books to be delivered.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Good afternoon! We have had a busy week starting all of our topics and getting used to the Year Two classroom. The children have done so well to keep going for the whole week, it definitely is something that will take some time to get used to! The homework books will hopefully we ready to take home next week so for this week it will just be reading and spellings. I will also be uploading the whole year overview and meet the teacher Powerpoint ready for you to have a look at before next week.
This week in maths we looked at counting in 2s and 10s and also had a look at some place value. Next week we will be counting in 5s and continuing with some more place value.
In English, we completed our work around a book called 'Here we are' by Oliver Jeffers. Next week we will be moving onto a book called 'Frog and the Stranger' by Max Velthuijs.
I hope you have a lovely weekend,
Welcome to Year Two!
It is the start of another school year and I am so excited to have the children back in school! The last two days have been very busy and full of new routines. It is great to see the children arriving by 8:40 so we can get started as soon as possible - with lots of hand washing of course! They have adapted so well and I am very proud of them already! Thank you very much for your hard work preparing them and ensuring they had the correct equipment in their pencil case.
I told the children today that they will usually take home new reading books and homework on a Friday. Today they only received reading books to ease them back into school again. Homework needs to be returned on a Wednesday and we will mark it together on a Friday. Reading books need to be returned on a Thursday and will be changed for the children to take home on Friday. All books need to be read twice before they're changed to support fluency and comprehension. Once the children are up to purple level, they only need to read the book once as they're longer texts.
Our main communication at the moment will be either through this page or any letters emailed to you. If you have anything you need to discuss with me, please feel free to email the office and they will let me know.
A quick reminder that we have PE on Monday so the children need to come into school in their PE kit!
I hope you have a lovely weekend and your children are feeling positive about their first few days!
