Home Learning For Year Two
Welcome to Class 9!
We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned over the next year and we will share our learning with you through Facebook and our weekly Newsletter. We enhance learning through our exciting topics listed below.
Autumn Term 1 - Food
Autumn Term 2 - Time
Spring Term 1 - The Great Fire of London
Spring Term 2 - Islands
Summer Term 1 - Royals
Summer Term 2 - Seaside Holidays
There are many opportunities throughout the year for the children to go on trips and work outside of the classroom to enhance their learning.
Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts and trainers or plimsolls in school with their name in them) on these days and that hair is tied back and earrings removed. Thank you.
Every child in Class 9 has a homework book, a selection of reading books and a reading record.
Please read with your child regularly and record this in their reading record; this noticeably supports your child's progress. Children should bring their reading books and reading record into school on a daily basis, as independent reading is timetabled for each day. It is expected that pupils in Year 2 will change their own reading books when they have finished them as this promotes independence and helps them to take ownership of their learning.
Within your child's homework book, you will find logins to Doodle Maths, Purple Mash, Nessy and Education City.
Please encourage your child to complete the daily 5-a-day activity on Doodle Maths. This is a quick activity to help develop your child's mathematical fluency, whilst also assessing the areas that your child needs support in. Doodle Maths will adapt the questions and activities it generates according to your child's answers, so please try to let your child complete this themselves so that the results and future learning can be accurate and tailored specifically for them.
We also have access to Doodle Tables, Doodle English and Doodle Spell - all of which can be accessed using your child's Doodle Maths username and password. These educational apps support your child's learning and help revise and develop concepts taught in school.
If you have any concerns or questions, or would like to volunteer in class, please feel free to pop in and speak to us at the end of the day.
