Welcome to the Year 2 class page.

 

Our topic this term is:

 

Who's the queen of the castle?

 

October 10th 2017

Today we had an amazing time on our class trip to Chirk Castle in Wales. We learned all about crime and punishment in Tudor times and visited the castle dungeon to see what it would have been like for prisoners. We learned how to fire a cannon and tried on a very heavy metal helmet. We also learned all about the clothes the rich Tudors wore and got to try some on. In the afternoon we had a tour of the castle and looked at the amazingly lavish rooms the Lord and Lady Myddleton lived in as well as visiting the very black and basic servants' hall. We were all on our best behaviour and had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures of the day.

Welcome back to the school year. It sounds as though you have all had a fantastic holiday.

The children have begun to settle in well to year 2 and have already been hard at work. Since we have been back we have been doing lots of Literacy work based around the book 'The Dragon Machine' by Helen Ward.

On the first day back we found an egg in the woods and it turned out to be a dragon's egg. We brought it into the classroom and lots of naughty dragons burst out of it and invaded our classroom. It has been so exciting!  For more informaiton about our curriculum, please click on the Curriculum Plan below.

Here is our working wall inspired by the book:

Today in RE we learn about how Abraham followed God, even though he did not know where he was going. Then we went into the playground and led each other, with closed eyes, around the playground to see how it felt. We said it made us feel scared, worried and anxious. Abraham must have felt like that too but he had faith and followed God.

 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out every 2 weeks on a Monday and will be due in the following Monday. This will be one piece of either Maths, Literacy, Science, Topic or RE in their red homework books. For the second week, the children will be asked to concentrate on tables, spellings and reading. The children will also receive one piece of phonics homework per week.

Spellings

Every 2 weeks, the children are given spellings to learn at home and at school. These words can be found at the back of their reading journal, along with the date the words will be tested. Children are given spellings on an individual basis and will only be given new ones if they are secure, both in their spelling test and in independent writing. On some occasions, children may forget words they have learned for a test so don't be surprised if words re-appear on their spellings list! Their success in learning each word will be indicated in their reading journals and a new list will be provided for the following fortnight. The aim is that they leave year 2 with a good understanding of basic spellings.

Times Tables

In Year 2, the children need to begin learning their times tables and, although we shall be doing lots of work in lessons, it would be really helpful if they could practice them at home too. They will be tested every other Thursday (weeks where they do not have written homework in their red book) and will go onto the medal table once they score 12 out of 12; Bronze (for recalling their times table in order), Silver (for answering times tables questions out of order) and Gold (for answering division questions for that table). They will begin with the 10 times table, then move on to the 2 times table, followed by the 5s and the 3s. Success of these tests will also be reported in the back of their reading journal.
