Year 2

Week beginning 4th March 2024

This week has been another brilliant one for Year 2. We have delved deeper into our new project, which the children are becoming experts on. The children have written some excellent diary entries and created wonderful fact files on The Great Fire of London. 

Nile class have their class worship next Thursday. They will each be an animal in the performance so you may want to tie this in with their World Book Day costume. However, if you have a costume for World Book Day already planned that is different to their worship animal - do not panic! We will create masks for these. 

Worship theme of the week:

Next week, our worship theme will be New life.

Key Information:

Please aim to read with your child at home three times per week, as they will earn a reading raffle ticket for every three reads! In school, an adult will read with your child once per week and change their Rhino Reader book once each week too. In addition, children have ownership over their 'sharing book', which they can change themselves and pick which book they'd like to read. 

We are trying to boost vocabulary within our writing in Year 2, so if you come across any powerful vocabulary whilst reading with your child, please ask them to note it in their reading record.

Year 2 Common Exception Words

Homework

Your child will be bringing home a home learning choice sheet  next week which we ask that you complete over the duration of the half term.  We will also be sending home a list of the common exception words that Year 2 children are expected to learn. We will not be testing the children on these spellings but we actively encourage children to use these words in their writing throughout the year.

My Maths

This week the mymaths learning tasks are on multiplication, which the children have learnt recently. 

Have a brilliant weekend!
