Welcome to Year 2!
Please check our class web page regularly for news and information about what we have been up to in school.
It’s Harvest Time at Christ Church!
Jesus said, “Love your neighbour.” This week we have been thinking about our local neighbours. We have found out about food banks and how they help people who might be struggling to provide food for themselves and their families. The children have brought in meals in a tin to donate to Colne Open Door food bank. We have also made cards and posters for Colne Open Door. Take a look...
Week commencing September 27th. 2021
We have signed up for a new online Maths programme called NUMBOTS. It is going to be really useful in helping the children learn and retain basic Maths facts such as number bonds and addition/subtraction facts. The children have been shown how the games work in class and will have brought home their individual log in details. Please spend a few minutes helping your child to log in to NUMBOTS and get started. Please use the number bonds to 10 and 20 games this week. The children will have their own robot avatar and name which they can customise as they earn coins in the games. There will be a certificate each week for the child who earns the most coins! Go, Year 2!
Reading in Year 2
Reading is so important. It forms the foundation of everything the children learn at school. Your child will come home with 2 or 3 reading books every week. Please try to spend 20 minutes each day reading with your child and talking about the story as well as any new or unfamiliar words they may come across. Your child should return their reading books to school on their reading day which is listed inside your child's reading record book. Please write a comment in the reading record to let me know how you feel your child coped with the books they read. This is really helpful for me and also lets me know that your child is ready to change their reading books. Thank you for your support! Mrs. Tilsley
If you are interested in further quality texts for your child to read, here is a really excellent list of Year 2 appropriate books...
Phonics in Year 2
Please have a look at this website to understand how your child is continuing to be taught to read and spell using systematic phonics this year. Each lesson is a good example of the way your child is being taught daily in class.
