SeeSaw

Your Seesaw log in will remain the same. The code will be sent home on the 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. 

 

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.

In spring term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London and Samuel Pepys and his diary. 

 

Maths

We are learning about equal groups, which lead into mulplication and division. We are continuing to count in 2's, 5's and 10's forwards, backwards and from any starting number.

Science

We are learning about all the different types of materials and their propeties. We are investigating what materials are best suited to different purposes.

Computing

This half term in computer science we are taking images, editing, storing and uploading them. We will investigate how to modify images for a purpose. 

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. 

History - The Great Fire of London

We will be studying the events leading up to The Great Fire of London and discovering the impact that this had upon the city. 

DT

We are investigating how to effectively join different materials for a given purpose, leading to creating a puppet for a story.

Music

We will be continuing to play the glockenspiel in our lessons within increasing control and to a given rhythm. 

PSHE and RE

Our RESPECT hero for Spring B is Nathan Young. We will be looking at why he is a role model for POSITIVITY and how we can strive to be more positive in our lives. Each week the teachers will nominate children that they have noticed being positive. These children will be known as our ‘Learning Heroes’. 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.

 

In Religious Education we are studying Christianity and the lessons we can learn from parables (stories) within the Bible.
