Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 (2022-2023)

Morgan, Armstrong, Lloyd-Webber and Hockney

This year we have Year 2 classes based at both Campuses and we will all be working together throughout the year. Our classes are as follows:

 

King Campus

Armstrong Class: Mrs Mackay-Martin (Class teacher)

Morgan Class: Mr Stott (Class teacher).           

Miss Humphreys (HLTA) will be working across both classes at King Campus. 

 

Kirk campus

Hockney Class: Miss Foyle (Class teacher and year group leader) and Mrs Smith (TA). 

Lloyd Webber Class: Miss Scales (Class teacher) and Mr Hallett (TA).

 

PE and Forest School

This half term, PE and Forest School will both be held on a Wednesday for all Year 2 children.

 

Kirk Campus: Hockney and Lloyd Webber will both have Forest School first thing in the morning on a Wednesday. Children are to come to school dressed in Forest School clothes (old, warm clothing and wellies). After their Forest School lesson, children will change into their PE kits and remain in PE kit for the rest of the day, therefore please ensure PE kit is in school on a Wednesday. Children do not need to bring school uniform to school on a Wednesday.

 

King Campus—Morgan: Morgan class will have Forest School first thing in the morning on a Wednesday so they will need to come to school dressed in Forest School clothes (old, warm clothing and wellies). After their Forest School lesson, children will change into their PE kits and remain in PE kit for the rest of the day, therefore please ensure PE kit is in school on a Wednesday. Children do not need to bring school uniform to school on a Wednesday.

 

King Campus– Armstrong: Armstrong class will have PE first thing in the morning on a Wednesday so they will need to come to school dressed in their PE kits. After their PE lesson, children will change into their Forest School clothes so please ensure children bring these into school in a bag (old, warm clothing and wellies). Children will then remain in Forest School clothes for the rest of the day unless muddy and then they will change back into PE kit. Children do not need to bring school uniform to school on a Wednesday.

 

Home Learning

Reading: Every Monday, children will be bringing home a new reading book that links to what they are learning in phonics that week. It is important that children read this book multiple times over the course of the week as this will support children to develop their fluency and flow when reading. Please ensure that books are returned every Monday so that they can be changed. Every Tuesday, children will be visiting the school library and will be able to pick a book of their choice from a wide variety of genres and text types. Please ensure children bring in their library book every Tuesday as they are unable to choose a new book if they do not return their old one.

 

Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book. Each class has their own reading race where for every day a child reads at home they move their name up the chart. When a child has read 4 times or more over the week they are entered into a raffle to win a prize at the end of each half term. Any reading that children complete at home can be recorded in their diary and will be included in the reading race. In addition to their school phonics book and library book, children may choose to read picture books, magazines, chapter books and non-fiction books to name a few.   

 

Additionally, all children are encouraged to take part in our school wide reading challenge, which can be completed over the whole school year. This will give children the opportunity to read a range of genres and develop their pleasure for reading. The reading challenge can be found below. 

 

Spelling: In Year 2, children will be set weekly spelling homework. Children will be set spellings on a Friday and will then be tested on the following Friday. Weekly spellings will link to what children are learning in phonics that week.

 

Thank you in advance for your support with reading and spelling home learning.

 

Projects

The Great Explorer 

Commencing Monday 31st October, we will begin a 5 week project called ’The Great Explorer’ where we will study the book of the same name by Chris Judge. This project will have an English, DT and Geography focus. We will become writers to create a survival guide and adventure story. We will become designers to design, make and evaluate our own hot air balloons, just like in the story. We will become geographers to learn about the location of the Arctic in relation to the rest of the world.

 

Children will bring home a separate home learning and vocabulary sheet for this project.
