Welcome to 2C
Miss Cohen's Class
Friday 27th November
On Friday, the children are going to be taking part in a cross country event. Please can all children come dressed in PE kit and bring in a spare pair of trainers in case it is muddy.
Please see Microsoft Teams for this weeks homework. There is a phonics activity, MyMaths and Times Table Rockstars.
PE is still on a Tuesday only - this is the only day they will need to come in PE kit. Children will not need to come into school in their PE kit tomorrow (Wednesday).
Half term homework
On Thursday, you should have received your login details for MyMaths, TTRockstars and Microsoft Teams. These logins will be used throughout the year for homework.
Over half term, the children have been set a MyMaths activity on counting to complete. They will also need to practice their 2, 5, 10 times tables on TTRockstars.
English homework will be set on Teams after half term.
Around the World
In the Autumn Term, our topic is 'Around the World'. We will be learning lots about the world around us, including the names of oceans and continents.
In English lessons, we will be looking at different features we can find in poems and focusing on performing poetry effectively. We will also be looking at descriptive writing, story writing and postcards.
In maths lessons, we will be recapping our number and place value knowledge, addition and subtraction. We will work on our fluency and tackle challenges using our reasoning and problem solving skills.
In science, we will be learning about animals and their habitats.
PE sessions in Year 2 will now be on Tuesday afternoons (outdoor PE).
On these days, the children will need to come to school in their PE kits.
Remember earrings can not be worn and long hair must be tied back.
At the moment, reading books will be changed on Mondays and Fridays. This is to ensure that books that have been read are quarantined for the appropriate amount of time before being given to another child.
Maths Homework - this will start after half term
Weekly maths homework will be put on MyMaths every Friday. The children all have individual log ins for this.
During year 2, we will be learning the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables throughout the year. You can play lots of games online to help learn these including Hit the button and Times Table Rock Stars (which the children have an individual log in for).
