Notice Board
21st January

English
The children will write their own version of Jack and the Beanstalk, told from the point of view of the giant.
 
Maths
We will be working with money, recognising the different coins and using them to find totals.
 
Topic – We Are Time Travellers
We will start to learn about The Great Fire of London. The children will design their Tudor house for The Great Fire of Winnersh, thinking carefully about the best materials to use.
 
Homework
From now on, we would like the children to hand their red homework books in every Wednesday. Buzz Time will take place on a Thursday, and the homework will be sent home in the red books on a Friday. Thank you for your support in this matter.

We have two classes called Amber and Sunset. The teachers are Mrs Bellman and Mrs Spiller.  Also working in the classes as Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Atkins and Mrs Robbins.

Click below for the link to our curriculum map.  We will be teaching six main topics this year.  Each will start with a ‘Big Bang’ to excite the children for the learning to come and will end with a celebration of their achievements.  This may be sharing work with another year group, a celebration class assembly or a special event.

Notices

We aim to change your child’s reading book three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  We rely on the kindness of our parent volunteers to do this job for us, so there may be occasions when the books are not changed. If this happens here are some ideas of what you could do at home instead:

  • re-read the book that they have been given
  • write a book review about the text
  • write about one of the characters (if it is a story) encouraging them to use adjectives
  • respond in writing to comprehension questions that you have asked e.g. Why do you think Goldilocks broke into the Three Bears house?
  • Read a book from your home library or on the computer

Each class will have two PE sessions a week which will be on Wednesdays and Fridays. One of these sessions will be outside so your child will need trainers and warm clothing such as a track suit.

Homework will be given on a Friday each week and should be returned the following Thursday, unless there is a change to the timetable.  Your child will receive a spelling sheet where they will explore a given spelling pattern.  We do not test the children on these spellings but would like them to write sentences in their homework book.  To help the children practise their maths skills they will take part in the ‘Buzz Time’ challenge every Friday.  They will be challenged on number bonds and times tables.

Here are some pictures of Year 2 recreating the Great Fire of London.
