Buds - Y2

Welcome to Year 2 
 
 
In the Buds class, we are enthusiastic learners and we believe that team work is vital. Our classroom is a positive environment, we feel comfortable about sharing our thoughts, taking risks, asking questions and confronting challenges in our learning.
 

This year Miss O'Malley and Mrs Morgan will be your Year 2 class teachers.

 

We are supported by the wonderful Mrs Mewton, Miss Almey, Mrs Dicker and Mrs Pitt.

We are all so excited to have you in Year 2 and can't wait to learn with you this year. 

 

What Are We Learning?
 
Below you can find an overview of our learning for the whole year and also more detail for each term and the sequence which we will follow to help build our knowledge in each subject.
 
We use our Knowledge Organisers to help us identify key information that we need to know and remember.

PE

PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays, please make sure your child's PE kit is in school. 

Homework

Reading - Children should read at home for at least 20 minutes daily (building up to 30 minutes towards the end of the year) as part of their homework. Children working within RWINC groups will have three books per week. One book will be the book bag book, library book and then the book they have been reading in their group. 

Spelling -  Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Please access the secure class page for your child's weekly spellings.

Number fluency - A focus is set each week and rehearsed daily in school. Homework is to practice this at home. For more details, please log in to our ESchools class page.

Numbots is also part of our home learning and we ask that children log in at home and play for 10 minutes at least once or twice a week. Teachers will monitor each child's time played, current level and correct answers. Certificates will be printed weekly and a ‘diamond level’ badge presented in assembly when a child completes Diamond level. 

Leap into Learning - each half term there are also a choice of additional home learning opportunities for children to engage with as outlined in our 'Leap into Learning' document.
