Welcome to Year 2 - Wordsworth
Welcome to Year 2 - Wordsworth Class!
What a fantastic start to Year 2!
My name is Miss Mullins and I am the Class Teacher in Wordsworth. I also work alongside Mrs O'Connor our wonderful teaching assistant.
This term we will be linking our learning to our topic 'I Spy ... Animals'. We will be looking at a range of texts which include animals such as 'The tiger who came for tea' and 'The little red hen'.
The term we will be looking at securing the foundations of the children's number work. This week we have been particularly looking at locating numbers on a number like and 10's and units.
We have PE every Wednesday and Friday. This half term we are lucky to have a football coach teaching the children on Wednesdays and all the children are thoroughly enjoying the sessions.
Things you can do at home
Reading is a priority in year 2 and if you could read as often as possible with your child this will really help them move on.
Reader of the week:
Each child will receive a raffle ticket every time they read at home and will have the opportunity to win a book at the end of the week. Little and often is the key.
Your child should be coming home with their reading book every night could you please read with them. Also could you please practice counting in twos, fives and tens with you child.
Summer 1 - If you shrank, which bug would you hug?
This term year 2 are learning all about mini-beasts! We are studying life cycles, habitats and plants and what they need to grow.
So far this half term, we have planted our broad bean seeds, learnt about the parts of an insect and flowers and even taken part in a bug hunt in Forest Schools.
We have lots of Quest Challenges that the children have set - we can't wait to add them to our displays to brighten up our classrooms!
Here are some pictures of our adventures so far...
Why not explore some of these games and videos on rainy days when it's difficult to get outside:
- Reading at least 3 times a week recording in the correct place in the diaries
- Revise 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables
