Friday 27th March
There is a new maths resource available for you to use at home. It is from White Rose and works in line with the Power Maths scheme. There are lessons available for Y2, for children to 'have a go' with and familiarise themselves with the site, ready for after Easter.
Please visit: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and have a go at WEEK 1 of fractions. There are short explanatory videos to help you with each lesson and activities for the children to complete. You do not need to print any worksheets out, you can simply copy the activities into the math books we sent home. On the website you will also find answers to the activities for parents. Please email us on the year 2 email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know how you how you get on!

PATHS are continuing to support us by providing resources, games, blogs with ideas, activity sheets, videos etc. via their social media to continue social emotional learning at home. Now more than ever, the children need support with their SEL. Follow @PATHSEdUK on Facebook or Twitter. So far this week they have shared: breathing activity ideas, indoor brain breaks, stay safe rainbow colouring in sheet, happiness blog and a SELfie challenge activity sheet which you can find in our class downloads!

Monday 23rd March
We would like to send our best wishes to all our students and their families during these uncertain times. We will miss you all very much and hope you all stay safe and healthy until we return back to school.
Starting from this week (wb 23/03) we will be uploading home learning packs every Monday morning onto the downloads section at the bottom of this page. We would like you to use this to support your children's learning at home.
We have suggested activities for Reading, English, Maths, Topic, Science, PE, Music and Art. Please make sure you are reading with your children at least 5 times a week and continue to practise their timetables (2s, 5s, 10s and 3s)
We do not require you to submit the work to us but I have told the children that I would love to see pictures of the work and activities they will be doing at home.
If you have any questions please contact us on the Year 2 email:

Miss Liakata, Mrs Fielding and Mrs Smith
In our classroom we have Miss Liakata, Mrs Fielding and Mrs Smith helping us on our learning journey. We have had a very busy spring term!
One of our main goals in Year two is helping the children to become more independent as they work. The children are encouraged to check their own work and to get used to finishing their work to a deadline!
In year two we make sure we always work as part of a team because we believe that Together Everyone Achieves More!
If you have any questions about anything happening in the classroom, please look in the class 'E - bag' to see the Autumn overview or follow the link to the calendar.
In the spring term we will be working like busy bees!
In English we will be reading 'The Night Gardener' by the Fan brothers and 'Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty. We will be basing all our learning around these books while exploring different writing styles such as descriptive writing, diary entries, instruction and explanation writing.
We will continue to work hard on our maths skills as the amazing mathemagicians we are! We will be working on multiplication, division, shapes, statistics and fractions!
For further information, please refer to the Spring Overview in the class e-bag.
Chatterday homework sent home every half term.
Times tables are assessed every Friday.
Spellings are sent home and assessed every Friday.
Spelling books are to be returned every Thursday for review.
Please support your child with the homework if they need it.
Remember to read daily at home and to discuss the books as this really helps to develop comprehension skills.
