Healthy Week

This week is Healthy Week at Winnersh Primary School! We will be doing many exciting activities that link to being healthy from checking our teeth brushing skills to making fun fruit faces.

The expert-led sessions are as follows:

Monday – Musical Theatre Dance for Amber Class

Tuesday - Musical Theatre Dance for Sunset Class

Friday – Tennis session for both classes

REMEMBER:

Sports Day is on Wednesday which we hope you are able to join us for.

Mr Casella is running circuits from 8.30am every morning except WEDNESDAY.

Please can your child bring a toothbrush and toothpaste in a named plastic bag on Tuesday.

We are looking forward to a great (hopefully dry) week!

The Year 2 Team

Click here to view the presentation from the Parent Meeting about Year 2 assessment.  We have also included the Year 1 and 2 common exception words, a grammar glossary and the teacher assessment framework for Year 2 which outlines the end of year expectations.

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

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 eg 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 Thursdays 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 returned the following Friday, 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 timestables.

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