Reading

 

The children will be taking home a reading book. Please read with your children daily at home and write a comment in their reading journals to let us know how they got on. Library books will be changed weekly, every Monday afternoon.

 

 

Every child is part of a reading challenge that gives out bronze, silver and gold awards for reading up to 100 books.

Let's work together to help your children reach this goal!   

 

 

Our Book Corner

 

Take a look at our reading corner! It is based around our topic 'Traditional Tales'. We enjoy using our book corner during Reading sessions and in the afternoons. This half term our author is Mini Grey so we will be sharing lots of facts and stories by this author. Our class book by this author is 'Traction Man.'

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Class Jobs

 

Every child in Pine Class has a responsibility in the class room. Every half term, the children choose which job they would like to do. It is a great way to teach independence and responsibility.

 

Take a look at our Helping Hands display!

 

 

 

PE

 

We do PE on a Monday and Friday. Children need to come to school wearing their PE kit. For PE, we wear a yellow tee shirt, green shorts and black pumps.  Earrings should be removed (before school if children are unable to remove them by themselves), for health and safety reasons.  

 

Homework

 

Homework will be given out every half term.  It will consist of different activities based on our Maths, English, Science and Creative Curriculum learning. The homework will be checked mid-way through the half term and will be marked at the end of the half term. Please support your child in completing their homework activities, as there will be opportunities for the children to share their homework in class. Feel free to see Miss Brooks or Mrs Zafar if you have any questions about your child's homework tasks. 

 

Thank you!

Creative Curriculum topics this year

 

Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  We do link our topic work with our English learning through stories, poems and drama.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.

 

These are our topics for this year:

British Values   

 

As part of our British Values in Year 2, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together.  One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes.  We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.

 

Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 2, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning.  We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated.  Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 

 

The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment.  They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a weekly 'Behaviour Star' to celebrate this.

 

We will work together to help one another and to make Year 2 Pine a great class!
