Year 2 2020 - 2021
YEAR 2 TA
Welcome to year 2
We have been working hard to ensure that work is available for your child during this period of isolation. I have put activities on Purple mash and we have also created packs in school for your child. If you would like a pack please contact the office. I have updated our class distant learning page with details of the pack and what activities your child could do please look on that page for details.
There are still lots of free online resources to support your child’s learning should you want extra work for your child. I would recommend:
School is still open so please do not hesitate to contact if you need any help. If you have any questions about the work set I have included my email address.
Thank you for your continued support

This is the start of the autumn term and you maybe a little anxious given how abruptly the school year finished. Please be assured as a school we have been working very hard to ensure we are following new government guidelines with keeping your child safe being at the forefront of our plans.
We hope you have had a fantastic summer holiday and have had some much-needed rest as we have a busy term ahead of us.
This half term we will start by getting to know each other with my first priority being finding any gaps in your child's learning journey. We have lots of plans in place to bridge these gaps, so please don't worry.
In English we will be first looking at the book 'The way home for wolf'. I am hoping to concentrate on grammar and sentence structure with the aim of producing a fact sheet on wolves and our own version of a wolf story.
In Maths we are looking at place value and looking at numbers up to 100. We will also be looking at our 2 times tables if you could practice these with your child, it will help them when we move onto more tricky aspects of maths.
In Science we are looking at living things and their habitats, please take the opportunity while out walking to talk to your child about different habitats particularly looking at bugs.
Our Topic this half term is a study of the artist 'Lowry' we will be exploring the techniques he used and producing a Lowry inspired piece of art.
Each half term year 2 will receive a homework grid, however given the current situation I have not included it just yet, as I want to concentrate on basic reading and writing skills. Your child will take home a reading book each week, as you will see from the curriculum grid under normal circumstances, we would change these twice a week. We must however quarantine all books for 72hrs after a child brings them into school, so I hope you appreciate at his moment we may not be able to change books as regularly as we would like to. We will however be doing extra reading in school with your child.
Year 2 have a P.E. session every Wednesday afternoon. Please can you ensure your child has a full P.E. kit that is labelled in school.
Thank you for your support
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs K. Taylor.
