Croeso i Ddosbarth 2 - Welcome to Year 2

Hello and Welcome!

 Hello Year 2,

The children are really enjoying our topic 'What a Wonderful World!' so far.  Over the coming weeks they will be learning about the Amazon Rainforest, the animals and people who live there, deforestation and then looking at what life is like in Brazil for a child.

In our Maths sessions the children will begin to look at division by 2, 5 and 10.  During our daily number gym groups we will continue to cover multiplication, multiples, quick fire addition, doubles and odd and even numbers.

Reading and Book Bags

The fortnightly rota for sending home and returning book bags will continue this term.  Please could we ask that you continue to return your Book bags to  school on the days marked on the newsletter, which can be found below. This is to ensure there is time in school to quarantine all books and reading diaries before they are used, and also allows you time to quarantine them at home (if you wish) before you use them.  Thank you for your co-operation with this.

 

Mathletics

This half term you will be set one Mathletics task a week.  You may notice that on occasions you will be set work on Mathletics that you have already done previously.  This is a great opportunity for you to revisit work previously covered, and check your understanding.  Once you have completed your set task don't forget to play on 'live' Mathletics.  We will still be generating certificates each week at 5pm on a Thursday, ready for our virtual Friday achievers' assembly in school. 

More information about what we will be up to in school can be found on our termly newsletter below. 

Looking forward to seeing you all this week.  Thank you for your continued support.

Year 2 Notices...

P.E

The Year 2 weekly P.E session with Mr Howells 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 a rain coat will also be needed and an extra bottle of water (clearly labelled with your child’s name) would also be a good idea. 

 

Water Bottles

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.  If your child does drink a lot during the day, please feel free to send your child in with two bottles.

 

Lunch Boxes and Bags

Please do not send your child into school with a bag, just a lunchbox if required.  Thank you!

 

Coat

As your child will be spending lots of time outside they will need suitable footwear and a coat each day.

Weekly homework will be set on Mathletics.  The weekly spellings for your child will be listed on our weekly Homework letter - please follow the link above to see your activities.
