Classes

I am able. Corinthians 9:8

 

Welcome to our Year 2 class. Miss Smith is the class teacher and Mrs Broughton is the Teaching Assistant.

We aim to create a fun, challenging classroom environment that allows children to shine and excel. Children are encouraged to become resilient, independent learners who develop a passion for their education.

 R.E

This term we will be looking at the theme of Advent. It is a time when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus. Christians at Christmas celebrate the gift of Jesus, given by God as a sign and expression of God’s love. Giving and receiving reflects the truth that all life is given by God and life is given meaning through the gift of Jesus.

 

Our termly prayer is

Today a Saviour is born!

In the stillness of the night God enters human history

through the birth of his only Son.

He is our peace and hope.

In him we praise God for his

goodness to us in giving us so great a gift. Amen.

 

Reading

Reading is an essential area of your child’s learning which can improve all areas of the curriculum. We aim to develop the children into becoming confident and independent readers. We encourage the children to read every night. Books will be changed once a week and we ask that you sign their reading record and a member of the teaching staff in Year 2 will also do this. We encourage parents and guardians to ask the children lots of questions about the book they are reading to develop their comprehension skills. Please send your child's book in on Mondays. 

Spellings and times table

Spellings will be given out on a Friday with the children being tested on them the following Friday. We encourage lots of practice at home and the children will be given opportunities to practice within school time. Each week, the children will be challenged with a times table quiz. Currently, we are focusing on our 2 times table and we encourage children to practice at home. Your child also has a log in to TT Rockstars to complete online challenges encouraging their multiplication and division skills. 

Our Topic this half term is WW1 one of very talented Year 2 pupils made this with his father, who is a war veteran. It looks fantastic, thank you.
