Welcome to Year Two!
This term we are learning all about Antarctica and the some of the people who have explored this isolated and diverse continent. Our main person of interest will be Ernest Shackleton and we will be learning about the Endeavour Exploration and the challenges that him and his team faced.
While we are not at school please keep checking the Home Learning section for learning and information updates.
To support your child's learning in Maths at home:
To support your child's learning in English:
Please read with them every night, taking time to discuss what the story was about. Books from the library, other story books, picture books, newspapers, magazines and comics are all excellent reading materials and also provide children with the opportunity to experience different ways of writing and sharing information and also provides an alternative to their school reading book.
Mrs Edwards will be teaching Year Two on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Speller will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. Year Two's Teaching and Learning Assistant is Mrs Gregg.
Please make sure that your child has their book bag and reading book in school every day.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
Please, please name EVERYTHING. It is amazing how easily the children lose or misplace items from their PE kits, their uniforms, their coats and even their shoes!
