What a fantastic start to Year 2!

We have had a brilliant couple of weeks in Year 2. The children have been amazing and we have loved getting to know them all better. We have all adjusted to our new routines and everyone has been working hard and looking after each other. We’ve seen some super teamwork!

We have had an exciting start to our new topic ‘Oh the places you’ll go!’ and our work has been taking us on imaginative adventures. At the moment, in English, we are on an exciting journey with Little Red Riding Hood, travelling through the forest. The children have written some amazing sentences and we can’t wait to see their own stories next week. 

We have also been journeying around our school grounds- linked with both our art and science work on materials. In history, we have begun learning about the explorer- Christopher Columbus. Do ask your children about it- you’ll be amazed with the facts they have learnt already!

A couple of notices:

  • Our PE Day is Friday so please send your child to school in their PE kit each Friday. They will need to be in their kit all day so please make sure it is comfortable and warm enough (especially as the weather gets cooler). 
  • Homework will start on Monday. This will be set on Google Classrooms under your child’s class page.  We will be setting spellings that will be set on Monday and tested the following Monday. These will be set every week.  We will also set Maths homework. This will start this Monday and the children will be given until the following Monday to complete it. This will be set every other week. There may also be additional topic homework from time to time but we will let you know about this in advance.
  • For children who are at home isolating, please visit the Year 2 2020 Classwork page.  Children at home (who are well enough) should be completing this work. 
  • Thank you for your patience with reading books. Our plastic folders have now arrived and we will begin sending these home from Monday. 

If you have forgotten your child’s login for google classroom, need to get a message to the teacher or have any other questions do please email us on year2@stmarksce.org.uk. We will get back to you as soon as we can. 

We hope you have a lovely, relaxing weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday. 

Best wishes
