Spring 1

Week 5 (w.c 30.01.2023)

Happy New Year and welcome back to school! We hope you've had a fantastic Christmas holiday. 

I hope you're all as excited as me to continue our Year 2 adventure together. 

During the next 6 weeks, we will be delving into the topic of 'Materials Matter!'. Please have a look at 'The Curriculum Overview' below (file to download) to learn all about the new things we will be learning about this half term. 

Please be assured that as a school we are following the most up to date guidelines with your child's safety being one of our highest priorities.

If there is anything at all I can help with and support you with, please do not hesitate to contact me on rebecca.lamb@st-marymagdalens.lancs.sch.uk.

 

Homework

Please have a look at the 'Spring 1 Homework Grid' below. We understand that family life is busy, therefore, it is not essential that all of these activities are completed but we do ask that your child aims to complete some of the activities to reinforce their learning across the curriculum.

 

Reading and Spellings

Your child's reading book will be changed twice a week (Monday and Thursday). Please read each book with your child and then encourage them to have a go at reading independently. Talking about the story with them and asking questions to develop comprehension skills can be extremely impactful in enhancing their English ability. 

Spellings will be handed out every Friday for a spelling test the following Friday. It is extremely important that your child works hard to practise their spellings at home to ensure a good result in their spelling test. 

 

PE

For this half term only, Year 2 will have their PE lesson on a Tuesday afternoon.

Please ensure that your child comes in to school with their PE kit already on (black or white clothing).

 

Tapestry

The Year 2 team are very excited about our new learning platform 'Tapestry'.

'Tapestry' is our secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments. Please continue to check Tapestry regularly to see all of the hard work your children have been getting up to throughout the day.

Thank you.

 

Bug Club

Please continue to use and check Bug Club regularly as stories appropriate to your child's ability will be allocated. These online story books will help your child meet their reading target, aiding them in improving their reading ability.

SORA

In your free time, please continue to enjoy our exciting new reading platform - SORA - a portal to a whole new world of reading. If there is any issues with logging on to SORA, please contact me on the above email so that I can solve the problem. 

 

Cool Milk

If you would like your child to have milk, you will need to register them on the cool milk website and pay the required termly fee.
