Croeso i Ddosbarth 2 - Welcome to Year 2
Hello and Welcome!
Hello Year 2,
We hope you have all had a lovely Easter holidays with lots of lovely activities and even a little bit of chocolate. The children enthusiastically tell us about all their activities and adventures when they return to school. It's great to hear their news.
To start our term (in the first week back) the children will be giving their presentations to the class about the journey their favourite food takes to get to our plates. We are all looking forward to hearing all about the interesting journeys that our food makes.
Our topic this term is Competitions and we will be taking part in lots of different activities. We will also be exploring the theme of WW2 and aim to share information with the children at an age appropriate level. We will be exploring early computing, algorithms and code breaking along with measuring and weighing. Using our literacy skills we will create wonderfully descriptive stories and think about the feelings and experiences of children in WW2.
We are looking forward to the Summer Term and taking part in fun competitions.
Year 2 Notices...
The Year 2 weekly P.E session is on a Wednesday. The children will need to come into school on a Wednesday in their full P.E kit with a jumper and trainers. They will not be able to get changed in school. As the P.E lesson will be outside an extra bottle of water and sun cream (clearly labelled with your child’s name) would also be a good idea.
Your child will need to bring a labelled water bottle in to school DAILY. We will be sending home these bottles each evening to be washed at home, refilled and then returned to school the following day.
Lunch Boxes and Bags
Please do not send your child into school with a bag, just a lunchbox if required. Thank you!
Please send your child in with a sun hat and water bottle during these warmer Summer days, as we will be encouraging the children to play outside. On sunny days we would advise applying sun cream with the children before school. If you wish the children to top up on sun cream through the day please could you send in a clearly labelled bottle. The children will be applying the sun cream themselves but we will encourage them to do so sensibly. I'm sure they will all be enjoying the sunshine in the following term.
The button above takes you to our Year 2 Homework page. This is where you will find our weekly homework letter as well as the tasks set for the week. Homework will be set each week covering a maths or literacy activity. A wide range of ativities are also set on Purplemash and Mathletics each week. There are also other learning links you may wish to follow from this page on a variety of subjects.
