Welcome to 2C
Miss Cohen's Class
Thank you for the wonderful cards and gifts, you have been so generous! It has been a strange year so far but you have all worked so hard and kept positive. You should be very proud of yourselves. I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
Monday 4th January
Monday the 4th will be a home learning day. There will be an English, Maths and topic activity on Microsoft teams for you to complete throughout the day.
PE will now take place on Thursday afternoons. Please send your child into school in their outdoor PE kit on Thursday 7th January. Remember, earrings should not be worn on any day (even on non PE days).
After Christmas, we are moving to year group bubble and so children will be grouped into two maths groups. The children will find out their groups on their return to school. The groups are changeable and may not remain the same for the entirety of Year 2. The children will either be taught by Mrs Frankland or Miss Cohen.
We will continue to change books on a Monday and a Friday. Please ensure your child had their book on these days so they can be exchanged.
Homework will continue to be set on a Friday. The children will have an activity on Microsoft Teams, MyMaths, TTRockstars and Spelling Shed. Spelling Shed log in details will be given to the children on their return to school.
🌸 Spring Term 🌸
Your topic this term is...
🔥 The Great Fire of London 🔥
This term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London and the Stuart times in our history lessons. We will hopefully be taking part in a virtual ‘History off the Page' day during the first half term.
In English we will be focusing on Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox. 🦊 for some of this term. We will be describing the characters, writing letters from the character’s perspective and then writing our own warning stories. In Science our topic is ‘Everyday Materials’ and we will be comparing properties and investigating suitability. In Maths we will be working on multiplication and division, as well as working hard on our reasoning skills.
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.
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).
Other Homework or home learning
Any other homework will be put on to the class Microsoft Teams page. Please keep an eye out for phonics and English homework there. This page will also be used if the class are required to learn from home at any point.
PE sessions in Year 2 will now be on Thursday 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.
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.
