Year 2 Miss Chandler

Welcome to 2DC!

Welcome to Year 2!

 

We are having lots of fun getting to know each other and we are ready to get stuck in with our learning. In year 2, we will learn lots of interesting and new things but most importantly, we like to have lots of fun! Your mental health and wellbeing is paramount to us. Therefore, we will be spending a lot of time completing activities that enable us to feel great and make us think about our own wellbeing and how important this is. This will include having numerous opportunities to talk out about our feelings and identifying all emotions.

 

In Year 2 we embrace growth. Our children learn that oopses and wobbles are necessary in order to challenge themselves and grow their brains to become the best independent learners they can be. 

 

This page will share some of the exciting things we have been learning about and you can see photographs of the hard work we produce. We hope you enjoy it! Also, check out our twitter page @firsprimarysale and search #Year2DC

 

You will find plenty of online games below, to help your children consolidate their learning at home. 

We will have many more exciting challenges this term and I am sure that your children will be eager to share what they have done in class, with you at home.  

 

 

Please help us in school by remembering the following:

 

Children must arrive at school wearing their full school uniform. Please make sure all items of clothing are named. 

 

  • Monday- We will provide you with 2 new reading books. You must read these books and return them on Thursday. Adults to sign the reading records please. 
  • Tuesday- Your child should arrive at school wearing their PE kit. This includes: yellow top, black shorts and PE pumps.
  • Thursday- you must return all reading books and reading records. We will provide you with 2 new reading books to read. You must return them on Monday. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Zoom Guided Reading Texts Orange and Blue Groups

Zoom Guided Reading Comprehension Questions Orange and Blue Groups

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all safe and well. How is the home learning going? Remember, you have the CGP books to practice your maths and reading comprehension skills. We have also provided you with a home learning project based on our topic of ‘Famous People’ (this is also attached on our class page.) I have attached a timetable below with some guidance for your home learning with an outline of what you could get up to during different times of the day. Try and do just a little bit every day, that is all we ask from you. With all this time at home, maybe you could try and do or learn something new? You could learn to play a new sport, bake something you have never baked before or even help out doing chores around the house. Please don’t forget to spend lots of time with your families and make as many precious memorises as you can.

 

Stay safe and see you all very soon J

Happy International Nurse Day!

As you may already know, today is International Nurse Day. This year is even more special than usual as it marks 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale. When we were at school we learnt about Florence and why she was such an important nurse in our history due to how she helped soldiers during the Crimean War and how she has shaped our health system today. To mark this special event I thought it would be a lovely idea to do something to thank all NHS staff and nurses, especially during the difficult times they are facing right now. 

 

International Nurses Day Poster

We would like you to create a poster to thank our NHS staff and nurses. If possible, we would like you to send the poster to our email so we can tweet them for the NHS staff and nurses to see. There are a few images below to help you with some ideas. We cannot wait to see your posters. 

'All Creatures Great and Small' Home Learning Project

 

Our topic this half term would have been 'all creatures great and small.' We really love this topic and know that you would too so we have decided to put together a few activities that you could do at home about this topic. We look forward to seeing your topic work during our Zoom sessions in the next few weeks. 

Story time with Mrs Cooper

 

Our lovely Mrs Cooper had made an amazing video reading one of her favourite stories. Click and listen, you will love it!

It's so wonderful, thank you very much Mrs Cooper smileyheart

 

P.S If you watch the video closely, you might see a very special guest!
