Inspire, believe, achieve!

Year 2 Mr Rushe

Welcome to 2JR!

 

We can't wait to meet you all. 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 in school completing activities that enable us to feel great and make us think about our own mental state 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 oopsies 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!

 

Check out our twitter page @firsprimarysale and search #Year2JR

 

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

We have plenty 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. 
  • Tuesday- Your child should arrive at school wearing their PE kit. This includes: top, 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!

 

Mr Rushe and Mrs Cooper

Hi Year Two,

 

I am so excited to be your teacher next year. We have talked a lot in class already about what it will be like in Year Three, but I have uploaded a transition story that gives you a little bit more information. I have also recorded myself reading a story in case you have forgotten what I look like!

 

Over the summer holidays I will be in school making our classroom look amazing and as soon as I have finished I will upload a video so you know exactly what to expect.

 

Have an amazing summer, I can't wait to see you all in September.

We have attached a list of useful links for you to access online lessons and resources for all subjects. We hope you enjoy exploring the fun activities. 

Happy learning smiley

Hello everyone! smiley

 

I can't quite believe how long it's been since we were all together. I'm still missing you all very much! heart

Every week I will be uploading a timetable so that you and your grown ups can continue to learn at home together. 

Mrs Johnson will be using zoom with different groups to do some guided reading and every two weeks I will be organising a zoom chat so we can all see each other and talk together! All of those details will be sent to grown ups via text / email.

 

I love hearing from you so please feel free to send me an email to share things with me (work you've completed, things you've achieved over lockdown, anything you want!) If you want to have a chat email me and we can organise a phone call home so we can talk together! My email is lgreenhalgh@firs.trafford.sch.uk mail

 

I can't wait to see you again :)

 

Keep safe!

 

Mrs Greenhalgh smiley

 

 

 

 

 

I love this story 'Time to Come In, Bear' it's all about keeping safe :)

We look forward to seeing your topic work during our Zoom sessions in the next few weeks. 

Postcard challenge

I’ve been missing you all so much so I decided to write you a postcard. I would love to hear about what you have all been getting up to. You can download the template below, write back, then ask an adult to post a photograph of your postcard on twitter. Don’t forget to tag @firsprimarysale and hashtag 2LG (#2LG) or you can email it to me lgreenhalgh@firs.trafford.sch.uk
