Croeso i Ddosbarth 2 - Welcome to Year 2
Hello and Welcome!
Hello Year 2,
We hope that you have had a lovely half term with your families. The weather wasn't too bad and we managed plenty of walks here which was lovely. Hope you all got lots of fresh air, too, and enjoyed time away from Google Classroom!
Miss Tingay and Mrs Smale are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to school this week, and have lots of lovely activities planned for you. Week 2 will be action packed with the Eisteddfod taking place on Monday March 1st, and World Book day on Friday March 5th. Please see letters below for more details. Thanks
Our topic this half term is Festivals and Celebrations. Each week, we will be looking at a different festival or celebration and learning about how they are celebrated. Our Literacy work will be based on Jack and the Beanstalk. We will be learning the story and retelling it using the Pie Corbett method of chanting with actions, and retelling it in our own words. For maths, we will be recapping addition using Money as well as coin recognition, 'shopping' for items and finding change (subtraction).
Reading and Book Bags
We will be continuing with our fortnightly rota for sending home and returning book bags. Please could we ask that you return your Book bags continue to school on the days marked on the newsletter that will be uploaded to the 'Homework' section of our webpage by the end of the week. This is to ensure we have time in school to quarantine all books and reading diaries before we need to use them, and also allows you time to quarantine them at home (if you wish) before you read them. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
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.
More information about what we will be up to in school can be found on our termly newsletter below.
Thank you for your continued support.

Year 2 Notices...
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.
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!
As your child will be spending lots of time outside they will need suitable footwear and a coat each day.
Please note World Book Day is on Friday 5th March, and NOT Thursday as originally written in our newsletter. Thank you.
Blue Peter Badges
There are 8 Blue Peter badges in total that you could be awarded. Follow the link here to view them and see what you need to do to be in with a chance to get one for yourself! Don't forget if you get one, you can bring it to school to show us in Achiever's assembly (Friday)
