We’ve had a wonderful start to our final term of Year 2. This week has been filled with challenging learning  and we are incredibly proud of our Year 2 children for rising to the occasion with such determination and positive attitude.
In English, we introduced our focus text for next week, and the children were captivated by the amazing world of magic and the incredible story of “Leon and the Place Between” by Grahame Baker-Smith and Angela McAllister. Our focus will be on using prepositions and incorporating powerful verbs to enhance our writing skills.
Maths challenge at home: What time is it? Follow the link to practice telling the time. This is a fantastic activity to develop your math skills. We encourage you to take on this challenge at home during the holidays to keep your skills sharp and have fun learning!
Talk PANTS: We would like to encourage parents to talk with their children about private parts at home. To support this conversation, please watch the provided video together and use it as a starting point to explain and discuss the topic. This can help ensure your child understands and feels comfortable talking about it. PANTS
Times table website: In our daily maths sessions we have begun learning our times tables. Please find a link here to a website that has times table games to practice: https://www.timestables.co.uk/2-times-table.html Your child’s NumBots login will also work for Times Table Rockstars. If you haven’t done so already, please start using the app with your child at home.
Reading books: Please make sure these are returned on Friday 21st June. The phonics books relate to the spellings we have been learning in class so please use them for any spelling practice alongside the reading.
Please make sure you return books on the day. You will incur a £5 fine if this isn’t returned. Your child will be given their new phonics book once the old one is returned.
PE: Please make sure that PE kits are in school each week and that kits are the correct PE kit for school: white t-shirt, blue or black jumper, blue or black shorts/jogging bottoms/leggings, spare socks and trainers.
Robins – Monday and Thursday
Skylarks – Monday and Friday
Swifts – Monday and Tuesday
Have a wonderful and restful  weekend! 
Year 2 team.
