YEAR 2

ST JOSEPH

Welcome to Saint Peter’s Year 2

My name is Mrs Jones and I am the Year 2 teacher, our teaching assistants are Mrs Moore and Miss Heapy. We work together as a team to provide fun and engaging lessons, to make sure the day is as enjoyable as possible.

 

Here is some important information for you to read through- 

Nuts Please can we remind every body that we do not allow nut products in school. Please do not send your child to school with anything that contains nuts, this includes products that say 'May Contain Nuts'. Your child will not be able to eat any of these products on the school premises

 P.E - Year 2 will have P.E on a Monday and Wednesday. PE kits MUST be in school for the start of term. Please ensure everything is labelled with your child's name. 

Homework Maths and Spelling booklets will continue to be given. The children will be given them on Monday and they should be returned on Friday. Children will be tested on a Friday morning and scores will be recorded.

The children will also still have access to spelling shed and Numbots/ TT Rockstars and the occasional project on Purple Mash.

Reading Books - Your child will be given one or two books per week depending on ability. They can change their reading books on the day that is written on their reading record, however, if your child has read their books before their given date there is chance on a Friday to choose additional books. Please complete your child's Reading Record to let us know how your child has been getting on. Please aim to listen to your child read for at least 15 minutes per evening. 

Your child can use Oxford Owl if they would like to do some extra reading at their level.

Autumn 1

What a first week back it has been! I have thoroughly loved getting to know your children this week, they are absolutely wonderful. They have settled very well and have already earned a massive 572 house points between them. A particular well done to Fionn who got more than 35 points alone! I have been blown away by their hard work and good listening skills. Well done boys and girls.

This week, we have been using practical equipment to help us in maths. We have been revising numbers to 20 and will now continue to look at their place value. 

In English, I have introduced the boys and girls to our new text- ‘Stardust’ by Jeanne Willis. We have used this book to help us write sentences including nouns, verbs and adjectives. We have also recapped using capital letters and full stops.

In RE, we learned about our class saint- St.Joseph and how he was such an important man in Jesus’ life.

In History, we started to look at castles and I now know what the children want to discover during our future lessons. In DT, we evaluated some Coats of Arms designs to help us plan our own next week.

Finally, we ended the week with some well-deserved Golden Time. Take a look at our photos-
