Year 2- Mrs Riley

Welcome to our class!

Things you can do to support your child

 

Year 2 is a busy year and we have lots to do and learn. There are some things that you can do to support your child at home.

 

Reading regularly with your child - this can be listening to them read to you or sometimes it is nice to share a book and talk about it with your child too. This helps promote a love of reading.

 

Sharing the phonics folder with your child and practice reading and spelling the phonemes we have been learning in class. 

 

Maths Games - Maths is fun! There are lots of games you can play with your child to help with their number skills. Every child also has a log in and password to the Abacus platform where they can play games which support and allow them to practice skills learnt in school.

Here are a list of the common exception words that we need to read and spell by the end of Year 2.

Our Year

We do lots of exciting things in Year 2. Have a look at some of the things we have done so far!

We had lots of fun at Lea Green. We went on an evening hike, climbed on the climbing wall, ran the obstacle course and built dens in the woods. We learnt a lot about team work and helping one another.

Politics Day

We spent a day learning about what happens in a General Election. We formed political parties, thought of manifestos, prepared propaganda materials and gave speeches to the electorate. We took part in a ballot at the end of the day to vote for the party that we felt should run the country.

 

" This has been the best day ever!" - Bronwyn

Y2 Fun to Run

In March the year 2 children took part in the Newbold Y2 Fun to Run event. We did lots of fun running activities and games before taking part in a 1km race. We were really pleased when our team came first and we qualified for the final!

Our sponsored circuit

 

Jo Jackson came to our school to talk to us about her career. We learned what hard work it took to become an olympic athlete!. We all took part in a sponsored circuit to raise money for sports activities in and out of school.
