SeeSaw

Your Seesaw log in will remain the same as last year. The code will be sent home on te first day incase you have lost the log in. Remember to log into SeeSaw for your home learning every week and to see wonderful examples of your child’s work. 

If you have any questions, please contact the school office and we will get back to you.

If your child is self isolating they are able to access daily lessons please click on the 'Self-isolating Hub' tab on our home page.  If a class bubble needs to self-isolate in the future the teacher will use SeeSaw to set any home learning. 

 

We have lots of wonderful learning in our next term, we are currently updating the following section over the next few days. 

Literacy

Will be on continuing to practise our correct letter formation, in addition to using punctuation - full stops. capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks and writing exciting, detailed sentences. We will also be reading through Read Write Inc in our groups. We are practising reading and writing our Year 2 Common Exception words. It is important that we develop our fluency and understanding in reading throughout the autumn term by trying to read every day.

We would encourage children in year 2 to read every day and suggest that reading is a minimum of 4 times during the week. During the term, we will be sending books home daily. Please record any reading in your child's yellow reading diary. 

We have been learning about the importance of speaking and listening (oracy) and have developed our own class ‘Talking Tips’. We will use these to help further develop our oracy throughout all curriculum areas and within our learning.

 

Maths

We will be begining with place value of numbers within 100. We will be counting objects, recalling our number facts within 10, recognising 2 digit numbers and their value (partitioning) and identifying numbers on a number line. We will be working with concrete resources and pictorial representations before we move to the abstract calculations.

 

Science

In Science we will be learning about living things. We will be using our scientific enquiry skills throughout the topic.

 

Computing

In computing we will continue to use our technology to support many areas of our curriculum. Children are learning about how to stay safe online this term. 

Geography

PSHE and RE

Our RESPECT hero for Autumn 1 is Amelia Earhart. We will be looking at why she is a role model for RESILIENCE and how we can strive to be resilient in our lives. Each week the teachers will nominate children that they have noticed being resilient. These children will be known as our ‘Learning Heroes’. During the first week back at school the children will review their class charters in which they discuss their own roles and responsibilities with regards to their behaviour and conduct in school. It is a very positive way to start the new term with the children keen to follow their charters and stay in the positive behaviour zones.  The children will continue to be rewarded for outstanding behaviour with Blue and Gold stickers.
