Reading at home

Whilst you are at home we would like you to continue practising your reading skills. 

You can do this in several ways:

Using books at home

  • read to a grown up answer questions about it - your grown up can use the questions in the document below
  • read together with a grown up - taking turns to read
  • Read to sibling, pet or teddy bear!
  • re-tell the story in your own words
  • Predict what will happen at the end of the story then read the book to see if you were right
  • Draw a cartoon of the story

Using OXFORD OWLS

The link below will take you to the free online library. A Year 2 account has been created for your use.

Questions to ask, whilst reading with your child

Key Dates and Reminders

 4th January - First day back to school

11th January - FOC Meeting at 7:30pm

25th - 29th January - Penny War Week

12th February - Last day of Spring 1

 

Reminders

P.E. The children will have PE on a Tuesday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor).

On these days, children are to come into school dressed in their PE kit. Please ensure they are in weather appropriate clothing as they will be outside at lunch and break times in these clothes.

PE footwear can either be plimsolls or trainers.  If you send your child to school with plimsolls, please ensure they have another suitable pair of shoes that they can wear outdoors at breaktimes.

Please ensure that all parts of your child(ren)'s kit is clearly labelled.  Long hair must always be tied back and it would be safer if earrings were not worn. 

 

Reading Books – Following COVID 19 guidelines, when your child finishes with their reading book they place it in a tray in the classroom, to be quarantined before it is returned to the bookshelves for use by other children.

Your child will then receive another book on the same day.

Please ensure that your child reads a little everyday at home, in addition to the daily reading they do at school. We can not stress how important this is in helping your child to become a confident and fluent reader.

Our Learning this Term: Spring 

Maths

Due to the lockdown period, we will be blending the missed learning from Year 1 with the Year 2 curriculum.

The children will begin by developing their understanding of counting and place value and how this helps them to understand the number system and in turn solve problems and calculations.

Place value is the understanding of the value of digits within numbers, e.g. in the number 45, the 4 is in the tens column and is therefore four tens (40) whereas the 5 is in the ones column and is simply worth 5.

 

We will be continuing to use the problem solving method called ‘Bar Modelling; a type of ‘part, part whole model’. This helps children to understand relationships in number and assists them with their understanding of calculations.

e.g. 12 + 16 =28

28 (WHOLE)

12 (PART)

16(PART)

There will be more information about our maths methods and learning at our Information Evening.

How can I support my child?

Please use any opportunity to count with your child; this may be forwards or backwards in ones, twos, fives and tens.  Maths should be fun! Try adding together the price of items when shopping and ask children to help estimate and weigh ingredients. Please help your child to learn how to tell the time and be secure in ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past.’Practising mental calculations is crucial for both addition and subtraction. (e.g. 15+12 could be worked out by putting 15 in your head, adding 10, then adding 2 more.)

English

This half term we will be looking at a book called 'Great Women who changed the world'. In this book we will learn about different women who did amazing things in their lives. This will link to our history topic where we learn about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.
Within our English lessons we will focus on Mary Anning and read a book called 'Stone Girl, Bone Girl', which will help us to learn more about Mary's life. The children will collect facts and information about Mary Anning through reading and grammar activities,  and then write a non-chronological report about her. 

Science

In our Science learning, we are going to be looking at Animals including Humans and Plants. This half term, the children will be noticing that animals and humans have offspring which grow into adults, learning about the importance of needing basic things such as food, water, air and exercise, and understanding the different types of food we have. 

 

History

In History this half term we will be looking at famous people - in particular we will be learning about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. Using our history skills, we will be learning about their journey as a nurse, the difficulties they both faced and how their accomplishments have influenced our lives today. 

Class Christmas Songs

Class 2A - We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Class 2C - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

A plea to parents!

Boxes

Over the next week, we would like to ask you to please collect any small boxes you may have finished using and to bring them into school on Monday 8th March. We will then use these to make our vehicles during our DT lessons before the Easter break.

Boxes like Calpol, mini cereal and tablet boxes are most useful.

Calpol Infant Suspension, Paracetamol Medication, For 2+ Months, Strawberry  Flavour, 100ml | Sainsbury's    Sainsbury's is selling pick 'n' mix mini cereal boxes so you can choose  your favourites           POM) Paracetamol Tablets 500mg Box of 100 Tablets | Medical Supermarket

Happy Friday Year 2! We have come to the end of another week with hopefully only one more week to go before we are back together! Please use the links above for today's zooms. We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Maths

Can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience with yesterday's Maths session! The children were especially good at completing all of their work under the circumstances - great job!

Today in Maths, you have been set activities to complete on your Mathletics account. The activities are based around our learning over the last week and will involve inverse calculations (addition and subtraction). You will also need to work out the value of shapes on an addition grid and fill in the missing values. Please complete all three activities set for you.

Mrs Crawshaw and I will be available after registration to reinforce yesterday's learning on inverse calculations. If you are confident with yesterday's lesson then you can head straight onto your Mathletics. 

English

 Today in English, we will be continuing with our Spelling rules with the 'j' sound but spelt using 'g' or 'j'. There will be no spellings to test this week as Mrs Keilty kindly did these with you at the end of last term. Please have a pencil/paper or whiteboard/pen to hand just incase.

As we only have two Fridays left before we return to school, this session will be done as a whole year group. If your child is finding some of the spellings tricky please practise the ones from the Year 1/2 list on the website.

The document below contains the spellings we will be focusing on tomorrow. There is also a word search and an activity linked to today's spellings for further practise. Please don't worry if you run out of time to complete them all.

 

Topic

Last term we focused on the Christian place of worship and learnt about the different uses and features of the church. Today we will be learning about the place of worship which is important to Muslims. The place of worship Muslims go to is called a Mosque. Please think about the following questions:

What can you see and do in a Mosque?

Why is it special to them?

Have you been to a Mosque? If so, what for?

What are the different features inside a Mosque?

Your task today is to complete the activity sheet below which involves drawing about what what you can see and do in a Mosque. You also need to write 2/3 sentences about why a Mosque is an important place for many visits Muslims to visit.

Please use the PowerPoints below to help you with your task. There is also an activity to fill in the different features inside the Mosque (with the answers underneath).

Good Morning Year 2. We hope you enjoyed your learning yesterday and you had fun drawing your ox! The Year 2 team have been busy being artists themselves so during registration you'll have the opportunity to try and guess who drew which ox! Good luck!

Maths

Today we will be using our understanding of cherry models to work out missing numbers from addition and subtraction number sentences.

Addition and subtraction are the inverse (opposite) of one another.

Complete either the first or second sheet  in the document below.  Beside each sum, put the information into a cherry model and use this to write the inverse sum.

If you are feeling confident, you can try the challenge questions at the end.

English
Today we are going to be reading the Chinese new year story. This story explains how each year is named after a different animal and why. After we have read the story we will be looking at the different personality traits that they animals have and seeing which animal year you were born in. 

Your activity today is to look at the personality traits for the animal year you were born in and write some sentences about how you are similar to the personality of your animal. You could perhaps look at which animal your family members are too. Are they similar to their animal?

Maths
In our maths lesson today we will be looking at bar models and cherry models which are made up from  part, part and a whole. We are going to think about what information these models tell us and we will be finding out which two addition and subtraction number sentences we can see from the different diagrams. I have added the teaching PowerPoint below if you miss the Zoom or need to go through it again. 

Your activity today is to complete one of the sheets below. You need to take the information in the bar model and draw it into a cherry model. You then need to write the 2 addition and 2 subtraction number sentences which match your bar and cherry model.
The sheets start easier and get more tricky. Pick the one which is a good challenge for you.

Maths

This week we have learnt lots of different strategies  to solve addition, subtraction and finding the difference questions. Your task today is to answer different questions using a strategy of your choice. 

The document below will remind you of the strategies we have learnt this week. It also contains the questions for todays lesson. You can draw  number lines or bead strings to show your working.

English 

Today in English we would like you to focus on your handwriting and presentation. Most of the writing we do is for somebody else to read. It is important that the reader can read our writing easily and that it is clearly and neatly presented.

We would like you to choose your favourite song. With a grown-up's help, find the lyrics (the words) to your song online.

Using the highlighted paper below (or lined paper at home), carefully and neatly write out part of your song - maybe a verse and a chorus, for example.

You could have your favourite song playing whilst you write.

Remember to:

  • sit straight on your chair at a table with your feet flat on the floor
  • hold your pencil correctly
  • take your time - do not rush
  • form your letters correctly, starting in the right place
  • keep all letters a consistent (the same) size. This means that all letters should remain inside the highlighted yellow are on the paper below
  • tall, ascending letters (such as l or h) should reach up, out of the yellow area, to the line above
  • all descending letters (those with a tail such as p or g) should reach down, out of the yellow area, under the line

We are looking forward to seeing your beautiful handwriting. We will be looking for the criteria above and sharing some WAGOLLs (what a good one looks like) on our website. We can't wait to see what your favourite song is either!

Reading

After lunch each day we would like you to complete a chapter of a book on Purple Mash and complete the related quiz. It is important you are reading daily. To find the 2do, you need to log on to Purple Mash and check your alerts for the new 2dos we have set. This is the same as the weekly homework we set during the autumn term. Enjoy.

 

Topic

Today we will be learning more about Florence Nightingale. We would like you to watch another video to learn more about the events of Florence's life. Your task this afternoon is to create a timeline of events in her life.

Maths

Today in maths we are learning to 'think addition for subtraction'. This links to our learning on 'finding the difference'

We will be learning that addition is the inverse (opposite) of subtraction and how we can use addition to help us subtract. We will start to notice the relationships between facts and numbers.

The questions to complete, are on the document document below. If you are feeling confident, you may choose to complete the questions on the  second document instead.

There are some pictures of  blank bead strings on the third document for you to use, should you wish.

English

Today we will be learning about how apostrophes are used to show possession. You will use the columns in the document below to help compose sentences that contain apostrophes for possession. Starting with the first, red column, choose an animal, person or object. Select an adjective (from the second, blue column) to describe an object from the third, yellow column and complete the sentence e.g. 

The pirate's glittering treasure was buried in the sand.

Beneath the document is an apostrophes game for you to play.

Topic

Today we are going to start our history topic on famous people - in particular Florence Nightingale. When we want to learn about the past, we use sources of evidence to find out information. Pictures are often used as a source of evidence.

Today we are going to look at a picture of a hospital from a long time ago.

Your first task to look at the picture and think about what you can see.
Does it look nice? Why?/ why not?
Do the people look happy? Why/why not?
Who is the lady?
Is she nice? How do you know?
Record what you have noticed about the picture on your sheet (or paper if you don't have a printer) 

The second task is to think of any questions you have about the picture, the hospital and the lady. What do you want to know? Record your questions on your worksheet.

Thursday 7th January 2021

Well done for another amazing day on zoom yesterday. We have had incredible attendance and it has been great seeing your learning. We look forward to seeing you again today!

We are constantly evaluating our lessons to ensure that the learning is purposeful and is supporting all the children. With maths in particular we are considering a combination of recorded lessons and zooms. Sometimes trying to teach particular concepts over zoom can be tricky. If we do host a zoom lesson, we are aiming to complete more of the work with the children during the lesson so they can receive verbal feedback at the point of learning. We hope you have found the zooms useful so far!

Registration will be via Zoom at 9:15am everyday. We will then stay on this Zoom session and move straight into the first lesson (maths/English).

Please use the Zoom link from the first lesson, below, each day to join your class registration and first lesson. So for today, the first Zoom lesson will be maths.

https://www.doorwayonline.org.uk/activities/letterformation/

There are two modes:

  • Press and Follow - your child places their finger (if using an iPad/tablet) or the computer mouse (if using a computer or laptop) on the ball and maintains pressure as they follow the formation of the letter, lead by the program.
  • Free Draw - your child uses their finger or the mouse to copy over the letter, starting in the correct place, as indicated on the screen.

Using an iPad/tablet is best, with this program, as your child can use their finger directly on the screen.

Jaiden and Roni's Guinea Pigs

We loved virtually meeting Jaiden and Roni's guinea pigs and their ten babies!

Thank you Jaiden and Roni for sharing them with us and telling us all about them. You really helped us with our learning about animals and their babies!
