Mrs Bush welcomes you to Year Two!
Welcome to Year Two! Our topic for this half term is The Great Fire of London and we are really looking forward to completing lots of learning activities with you all. Each day the children are invited to stay at school until 4pm in order to participate in our Extended Schools programme. These sessions have been specifically designed to enable the children to 'catch up' on the English and Maths work that would have been taught in the Summer Term of Year One. In addition, the children will be given Home Learning each week.
Home Learning is given on the following three sites: Purple Mash, Spag.com and TTRockstars. The children all have their own log ins. Please see your Purple Mash email if you have not got these already. You, or the children, can email me through Purple Mash using the 2 Email app or through Class Dojo.
Please click below to be taken to the websites.
This Home Learning is monitored by staff at school and marked electronically.
Please ensure that your child also reads at least 3 times a week.
Please note that I have completed the curriculum overview for the Autumn Term and attached it at the bottom of this page. This will show you what the children will be learning during this term. Please go to each subject page for links to ideas for your child or alternatively click here for a short cut: Curriculum link
In the list of documents below there is also a 'SATS for parents Powerpoint', please do take time to look through this important information.
Your child is expected to wear their PE kit on a Thursday. The children will be completing PE lessons outside, so they need to wear an outdoor kit (black/navy tracksuit bottoms and hoodie/jacket and trainers). Please be aware that girls will not be allowed to wear their tights for PE and will need a pair of socks to change into. Earrings will not be allowed in for PE. If your child is unable to take out the earrings, then they will not be allowed to take part in the PE sessions.
Children are expected to read at home at least 3 times per week with an adult or an older sibling. Please comment on Class Dojo each time you read with your child. Children will be awarded a 'Reading Dojo' at school when your comments have been read. If there are any issues with this, please speak to one of the staff members from Year 2.
