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 Brazil and creating lots of different pieces of writing around the Amazon Rainforest.
The term we will be looking at securing the foundations of the children's number work. This week we are looking at 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
We have PE every Thursday and Friday. This half term we will be involved cultural dance with the theme 'Rio Carnival' and competitive games in our other session. Please make sure that children do bring their PE kit on these days, as there were many children without it last term.
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.
This weeks reader of the week is: Sherli :) Well done!!
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.
Spring 1 - Brazil
This term we will be learning all about Brazil and the amazing Amazon Rainforest.
Autumn 2 - The Great Fire of London
Last half term the children really enjoyed learning about The Great Fire of London. They produced some amazing diaries about what it was like to witness the event and really thought about their different senses when writing their diary.
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
